Dancing Vegetables

:) A fun video! 25 girls from the japanese singing/theatre troupe in Japan advertising juice.
I love their outfits, can you name them all? Its a strange marketing ploy to get guys to buy juice... their website lets you pretend to have a drink with each of the girls, check it out, I find it pretty hilarious:

Overheard at Carleton ID


Carleton Solar Decathlon Team

You may have missed the first few meetings of the Carleton Solar decathlon team, but it's not too late to take part in this project. The team is working towards a concept to be entered in the 2013 competition, but the major design work is expected to be completed over the next few months.

What is the Solar Decathlon?
"The U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon is an award-winning program that challenges 20 collegiate teams to design, build, and operate solar-powered houses that are cost-effective, energy-efficient, and attractive. The winner of the competition is the team that best blends affordability, consumer appeal, and design excellence with optimal energy production and maximum efficiency."

What is the project goal?
The team is looking to design a house that is marketable, aesthetically pleasing, efficient, and cost effective.

What do they want from us?
Ideas. Insights. The team in charge of this is comprised of engineers, and they are looking to ID and Architecture students for help in developing the concept during the early stages. If you know anything about solar power, passive solar heating, architecture, small-space living, energy saving design, etc, etc, etc, we want your input.

The next meeting is during the first week of January, and they are looking for students to bring concepts work or research done over the break. The plan is for a full-fledged concept by the end of January, so things are moving very super fast.

If you have any questions you can email the team directly at: or speak to Nat Overholtzer or Anthony Dewar in 3rd year.
