All wine lovers dreams have come true – finally an adult theme park that is free of screaming children and full of the best vino from around the world.
La Cité du Vin, which translates to “The city of wine” is a full blown theme park in France.
Located in Bordeux, one of France’s most famous wine-making regions, La Cité du Vin will be opening its doors this week.
There will be no roller coasters at this theme park, but over 20 wine-themed sections, including tours, shows, workshops and exhibitions that cover the history and culture of wine.
Furthermore, there is a 250-seat auditorium for classes, screenings and wine-tasting sessions.
La Cité du Vin is housed in a stunning structure that has two restaurants on site. One offers dishes made from in-season regional produce, while the other has a staggering 800 different bottles of wine from around the world to choose from.

The latest in gaming technology has brought your favourite TV sitcom apartments to life.
Here is a ridiculously detailed virtual view on Monica’s apartment from Friends, created using the Unreal Engine 4 game console. According to the developer (user 5teven94 on YouTube), the apartment was built for a University project over a 12-week period. The tour doesn’t take you through the entire apartment, leaving the bedrooms and bathroom hidden behind closed doors.The amount of detail put into the apartment is very impressive – we half expect to see Monica, Rachel, Joey, Chandler, Ross and Phoebe walk through the door any minute.

We propose iSkin, a novel class of skin-worn sensors for touch input on the body. iSkin is a very thin sensor overlay, made of biocompatible materials, and is flexible and stretchable. It can be produced in different shapes and sizes to suit various locations of the body such as the finger, forearm, or ear. Integrating capacitive and resistive touch sensing, the sensor is capable of detecting touch input with two levels of pressure, even when stretched by 30% or when bent with a radius of 0.5 cm. Furthermore, iSkin supports single or multiple touch areas of custom shape and arrangement, as well as more complex widgets, such as sliders and click wheels. Recognizing the social importance of skin, we show visual design patterns to customize functional touch sensors and allow for a visually aesthetic appearance. Taken together, these contributions enable new types of on-body devices. This includes finger-worn devices, extensions to conventional wearable devices, and touch input stickers, all fostering direct, quick, and discreet input for mobile computing.
