These Concept Images Suggest a Village on the Moon Is Closer Than You Think

It’s 50 years since humans last set foot on the moon’s surface. Now, there is an initiative to take us back, and the idea is to make the move permanent. Concept images for an inflatable “Moon Village” have been released by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP (SOM) – the engineer, and designer of the project’s master plan – in partnership with the European Space Agency (ESA) and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).

The concept images above are for the first full-time human habitat on the lunar surface. According to the design partner, Colin Koop, “The project presents a completely new challenge for the field of architectural design.” As part of the challenge of sustaining human life in an otherwise uninhabitable setting, the designers and engineers need to consider factors such as radiation protection and how to provide breathable air.

Apple iOS 13 to Finally Bring Dark Mode & New Volume HUD to iPhone

Apple is slated to introduce iOS 13 at WWDC in June, and 9to5Mac has shared new details about what to expect for the next operating system. The report cites sources that are familiar with the matter, along with contribution from developer Steve Troughton-Smith.

The report claims that a system wide Dark Mode is coming to the iPhone and iPad with iOS 13. This feature was previously introduced on macOS Mojave last summer. In addition, the report says that there will be improved multitasking on the iPad with iOS 13, including support for multiple windows and stackable cards in apps.

9to5Mac points out, “Each window will also be able to contain sheets that are initially attached to a portion of the screen, but can be detached with a drag gesture, becoming a card that can be moved around freely, similar to what an open-source project called “PanelKit” could do. These cards can also be stacked on top of each other, and use a depth effect to indicate which cards are on top and which are on the bottom. Cards can be flung away to dismiss them.”

iOS 13 will reportedly feature a new volume HUD to replace the current design which obstructs half of the screen’s view. iPads are also expected to receive a new standard undo gesture, as an alternative to the shake-to-undo. The report claims the new gesture is activated via a three-finger tap on the keyboard area.

Other additional gestures are expected to be introduced with iOS 13, such as allowing a selection of multiple items in table views and collection views. Users will be able to “drag with multiple fingers on a list or collection of items to draw a selection, similar to clicking and dragging in Finder on the Mac.”
