'The Advertising World' magazine cover - June 1926.  
There are times when it seems that although the publication date of an issue may be outdated by days, weeks, months and in this case decades - the content or the artwork on display; just isn’t.
In fact quite the contrary, there’s no doubt that any magazine that has artwork that remotely resembles this is bound to cut through the clutter and grab the attention of many.

Emmanuelle Moureaux Architecture + Design has completed Sugamo Shinkin Bank,  a credit union located in Shimura, Japan.
The twelve layers try to capture the layers of the Earth which become seamless with the sky.  As well as being faintly illuminated, varying in accordance to weather and the season.
Wait if you think this is cool, check out inside.  It looks more like a club than a bank.
But in the end of the day - it is a bank.

This is revolutionary.
The Acure Digital vending machine designed by Fumie Shabata for JR East Water Business, Japan. Features: 47” touch-screen display, mounted camera, sensory data is interpreted by an internal processor.
Based on the interpreted data of the consumer, outside temperature, time of day, and even season it will offer the consumer the best possible choices. Better yet - they are centrally controlled which allows the machines to give out free beverages in emergency cases.
