Google launched iOS app Slides today, along with updates to its Docs and Sheets apps. Slides lets you collaborate on presentations from your mobile devices, including PowerPoint files.
Any kid lucky enough to live in a two-story house will quickly figure out how to turn it into an indoor all-weather slide. Whether that's using a piece of cardboard as a sled, or simply by putting on a few extra pairs of undies for padding and bouncing down on their keester. But soon, thanks to the SlideRider, there…
It's probably quite a bit different when you see one from inside a plane, but from down here on the ground, watching airplane evacuation slides deploy is pretty damn mesmerizing. Thankfully, Core77 just uncovered some great footage of the slides being both made and tested.
If play is the opposite of work, then every home should have a mandatory slide. It’s significantly faster than taking the stairs, greener than an elevator, and more compact than either. Plus, you will never have to go to the playground again. In fact, as an adult in New York state at least, you aren’t even allowed to…
It's no secret how the recently built Panorama House, which stretches along the hilltop like a beautiful, stone accordion, got its name. But while the outside is lovely to behold, it's what's hiding within that really caught our attention: an awesome library-slide crossbreed in a stadium seating body.
You might think that a museum adding 2000 new exhibits would need to build a whole new wing. But the latest additions to London's Grant Museum of Zoology all fit into a space the size of a large wardrobe: they're vintage glass microscope slides, bearing specimens taken from everything from fleas to whales.
If this monstrous snaking course is what slides are like at Japanese playgrounds, my mind probably won't even be able to begin to comprehend the magnitude of their swingsets. I imagine they must tower over skyscrapers.
It often seems like every PowerPoint slide is the worst, but here lies what projector company InFocus deems history's most heinous. I'm inclined to agree. It's almost brilliant in its horror. Diabolical. The arrows. The colors. This is Satan's face.
Slides! Everything is better with a slide. Playgrounds. Universities. Probably prisons. But especially, this mind-bogglingly entertaining-looking house in Japan, which has a slide built in all the way through. Breakfast time, kiddos! SLIDE ON DOWN!
This is the Technische Universitat in Munich, Germany. Those giant tubes are slides to go from the top floor to the ground level patio. Why? It doesn't matter. This is an example to be followed all around the world. [Thanks Karl!]
When we analyzed the plans for Steve Jobs' future home, we found one very important upgrade to be missing: A slide. Hopefully he'll think of making that addition later on, but in the meantime here's a collection of our favorite houses with built-in slides:
The Indonesian "Play House," designed by architects at Aboday, boasts clean lines, high ceilings and something that's especially awesome for the lucky little 5-year-old punk who uses it: a two-story polished concrete slide that goes from bedroom to kitchen.
A JetBlue flight attendant argued with a passenger on the tarmac at JFK today. In a fit of rage, he activated the plane's inflatable emergency slide, slid out, and stormed off the job. [Updated with photos and his curse-strewn rant!]
If you are near National Harbor in Fort Washington, Maryland, don't miss their 15,000-square-foot Gaylord National's ICE! exhibit, a winter wonderland made with two million pounds of ice. And let your pretty butt freeze, swooshing down their 20-foot slide.
A part of the American Dream is to be able to retire comfortably in your favorite area, say on a lake, with a large home. But not everyone dreams the same, some people love giant slides, and this family went a little nuts and installed one inside their house for the kids. Not for the adults, mind you, the kids. It's…
If there is anyone left on earth who is still using physical film to take slide photographs, here's something to do with them other than boring everyone with your interminable slide shows: Slide Lights, a lighting system that lets you insert those transparencies all along its length. You can mount the fixture either…
