The four world record breakers at the National Motor Museum

Records are made to be broken, and the British have a habit of breaking World Land Speed Records more than anyone else. Last week, Don Wales, grandson of Sir Malcolm Campbell, opened a new multimedia exhibit entitled “Britain & For The Hell Of It” at the National Motor Museum, Beaulieu, Hampshire. Celebrating the golden age of British record breaking from the 1920s through the 1960s, it features four famous record-breaking cars as well as souvenirs and memorabilia, trophies and personal items belonging to the drivers.  Read More

The re-worked red brick house in Modena is no different than most other 19th century residences in the Italian motoring villa. That the unassuming space was the birthplace of Enzo Ferrari was previously only communicated to persons on the street by a simple sign reading, “Officina Meccanica Alfredo Ferrari.” But now a new contemporary gallery dedicated to Ferrari’s founder has reopened to the public and showcases some of his company's finest vintage works.  Read More

Sometimes the most important victories in a war don’t occur on battlefields and don’t involve weaponry. On Wednesday, a very unusual group of veterans gathered at Bletchley Park, Buckinghamshire to commemorate an event that shortened the Second World War and saved countless lives. They were the men and women who built Colossus, the world's first programmable electronic digital computer, and they and their families were at the National Museum of Computing for a re-enactment of the day the famous machine began its code-breaking operations against the Axis forces.  Read More

Claudiu Ionescu is the architect behind Romania's very first digital museum

Claudiu Ionescu is the architect behind Romania's very first digital museum. Situated near the Mures Floodplain Natural Park in Pecica, the unusual and chapel-like museum features a sweeping green roof and dramatic spire facade at its rear.

The new £27-million (US $44 million) visitor centre for the world’s most famous Neolithic monuments has opened its doors just days before the winter solstice in Britain, offering a modern, but low-key and educational introduction to the 5,000-year-old stone circle. Cars are banished and visitors are offered a virtual "Stonehenge experience" before approaching the stones on foot or by shuttle.  Read More

Whatever the quantity of confectionery you manage to consume this holiday season, you're unlikely to come across a candy-based model of the Tate Modern gallery ... unless, that is, food artists Caitlin Levin and Henry Hargreaves happen to slip one of their creations into your stocking.  Read More

Denmark-based architecture firm Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) recently completed work on the new Danish National Maritime Museum. The museum is placed within a large pre-existing dry dock, and thus doesn’t unduly disrupt the local area – an important concern given its location adjacent to the historical Kronborg castle, as immortalized in Shakespeare's Hamlet.  Read More

When Occipital launched its Kickstarter campaign for a portable 3D sensor for mobile devices, it saw the project fully funded within a few hours. Knowing we had to see this gadget in action, Gizmag met with co-founder Vikas Reddy after Structure Sensor had become the 50th Kickstarter project to reach the million-dollar mark. Our goal was to test the gadget that has its backers so eager to test one too.  Read More
