Dutch history meets modern energy initiatives in artist Daan Roosegaarde’s latest installation, which uses beams of green light to visualize the movement of the country’s windmills.
The Netherlands has an ambitious new energy goal: The country wants its entire electric rail system to run on 100% wind power within three years.
This is no ordinary Buddha statue. As the CT scan at the right clearly shows, there's a mummy concealed inside!
There are only so many roofs in the world, so the Dutch are getting creative about where to put their solar panels. SolaRoad is exactly what it sounds like—solar panels that pull double duty as road surface and electricity generator. And this being the Netherlands, they of course made a solar road for bikes.
Currently, the fastest commercially available fiber optic line tops out at 100 Gbps. That's super fast, sure, but isn't nearly a wide enough pipeline for our increasingly interconnected systems. That's why this new, multi-modal, fiber line is so exciting—it can pack 2,550 times as much data into the same glass strand.
Rotterdam’s just-completed Markthal, or Market Hall, is an innovative, sustainably designed building charged with delivering local, healthy food to the city center. But there’s one particular element of the structure that’s getting all the attention: An arching, technicolor tossed salad of a ceiling.
My favorite thing about these then and now type of videos that show what the world used to look like versus what it looks like now is not seeing what has changed but seeing how much has actually stayed the same. This video shows the 100 year difference at Alkmaar in the Netherlands.
The concept of glow-in-the-dark roads is an incredibly simple piece of safety infrastructure that feels like it should have been implemented years ago. Finally, it has been—on the roads of the Netherlands
Oh, to be a cyclist in the Netherlands. This steel tensioned deck lets cyclists ride high above a busy multi-lane highway in Eindhoven—one of the most bike-friendly areas in the world.
Spanning more than 25 miles of shoreline and covering 41 square miles, the Port of Rotterdam is largest shipping berth in all of Europe, the fifth-busiest in the world, and a major interchange for the region's energy supplies. But keeping the North Sea's fury in check is no easy feat. So to keep the port open for…
US copyright laws are designed to protect the "fair use" of copyrighted content such as mash-ups and remixes—or they were, at least, until the advent of DMCA Takedown Notices. The Dutch government has taken notes on America's IP failures and is reportedly looking to explicitly protect such DMCA fodder, much to the…
It's hard not to get a slight sense of vertigo from these stereographic projections by Dutch photographer Wouter van Buuren. Each one was taken from a very high point across the Netherlands, China, and New York City.
Gentlemen, are you shooting blanks or are you ready to continue your family line another generation? Before, answering that question required a trip to the doctors. Today, a Dutch researcher says the test could eventually be, ahem, in your hands.
Just like they tweaked their evidence against Samsung with the Galaxy Tab, it looks like Apple has flubbed evidence regarding the Samsung Galaxy S too. They shrunk the image of the Samsung phone to look like the size of an iPhone, even though it's not.
Moments of destruction are wonderful, as long as nobody's hurt. And nobody got hurt in this partial collapse of the nearly thousand-foot communications tower in Hoogersmilde, Netherlands. So just sit back and enjoy.
Architecture firms tend to use their offices as a giant business card they can work inside. Decos' is no exception—except it looks like an astronaut base, not a Dutch headquarters. Their inspiration? A meteorite impact.
Circling this modern Dutch house in a nine mile radius are the abandoned building sites architects spotted using Google Earth, and then salvaged materials from. Nothing was spared—not even umbrella spokes which were used for the lighting.
