The MPRIES in Sarrasine
American supermarkets take notice! This is what a supermarket SHOULD look like!
MPRIES is a family owned Austrian supermarket chain that employs up and coming architects to design the most amazing supermarkets I think I’ve ever seen. They use interesting materials, exciting and unique lighting, and each store has it’s own site specific design. Attention to detail is seen not only in the outside but the inside as well, giving customers an extremely comfortable environment to shop in. I want to go to Austria to check all of these out now! The closest thing we have to this in America would be Whole Foods.
Since MPRIES’ website is all in German, I’ve taken all of the cool pictures of nearly EVERY store they have to show everyone really how cool these stores are! You should be extremely jealous you don’t have one of these close to you!
Sony released pictures of a new OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diode) display that can show 16.7 MILLION colors, as opposed to the next closest display, which could only do 262,000. It’s all on a flexible piece of plastic that’s only 0.3mm thick.
This is seriously the future right here. Everything you’ve ever seen in sci-fi about something like this will be true.
You’re going to read your digital subscription of the New York Times on this stuff. Computers monitors will be as thin as magazines, and will roll up into a tube that fits in your monitor. Then haptic technology will come into it and you’ll be able to have touch screen capabilities.
I’m a firm believer in the, ‘If you can dream it, it can happen”, idea.
