Khao Luang

31 March, 2018 - 00:10

La cueva de Khao Luang es una de las más importantes y más visitadas de Tailandia, ya que en su interior hay numerosas imágenes de Buda. Ésta se encuentra a 100m de altura. Entre 1851 y 1868 la cueva fue utilizada para la meditación y para el estudio del budismo, así paulatinamente se fue llenando con imágenes de Buda.
El rey Chulalongkorn ordenó la construcción de un gran buda de 4 metros en su intrerior como homenaje a los reyes Rama III y Rama IV, así mismo ordenó la estauración de numerosas imágenes de la cueva.
La atmósfera de la cueva es serena y tranquila. Entre las imágenes destaca el Buda reclinado que simboliza el paso de Buda al Nirvana, así como los 170 Budas de menor tamaño. La luz que penetra en la cueva permite una iluminación dramática ue mezcla la espiritualidad de las imágenes con la de la propia naturaleza de la cueva, poblada de estalactitas.

Phraya Nakhon

31 March, 2018 - 00:10

La cueva de Phraya Nakhon se encuentra en la montaña de Tian. La composición rocosa, permite la formación de este tipo de huecos, en los que discurren también cascadas y aguas subteráneas. La cueva en la que se encuentra el santuario, es una de las más llamativas de la montaña, ya que parte de su techo ha colapsado dando lugar a una entrada de luz cenital muy dramática. En su parte superior se construyó un pequeño puente, apodado puente de la muerte.
El santuario construido en la cueva o pabellón Khuha Kharuehat es una construcción de carácter histórico, cuya construcción fue realizada para la visita del rey Chulalongkom en 1890. La posición del pequeño templo hace que en determinadas épocas del año la luz incida directamente sobre él. Tal es su perfección con respecto a la lus solar y a la astronomía, que ha sido estudiado profundamente en tiempos actuales.

Trashpresso: Solar-Powered Mobile Recycling Plant Turns Trash into Tiles

30 March, 2018 - 19:02
[ By SA Rogers in Conceptual & Futuristic & Technology. ]

You know how China stopped taking our plastic recycling waste because Americans can’t seem to figure out how which items are actually recyclable and which ones clog up the machines and contaminate the resulting materials? Now that China’s ban on imported plastics has gone into effect, we have a whole lot of unwanted stuff to contend with. At this point, it’s clear that robots are very likely the future of recycling, helping to sort through refuse and remove non-recyclable items so people don’t have to. But they could be useful in the interim, too, as proven by the ‘Trashpresso’ mobile solar-powered recycling plant.
