Fun@WalmartLabs - Kite flying picnic with my colleagues in Bangalore! Reaching the ground was itself an adventure! In addition to kite flying (which was lot of fun), we also celebrated birthdays of Arvind and Nikesh in our own “style”. Poor Harish, we also celebrated his birthday! I guess he enjoyed it - just look at ever smiling face.
We went to some village grounds, just outside Bangalore to play cricket. It was a great experience in playing cricket after a long time! And it was even more fun driving through the narrow lanes/roads of these villages.
It was a beautiful day to play with lot of cool breeze and a hint of sunshine.
We are all smiles even when we loose :)
Big Sur and California Highway 1
I went to Big Sur with Vivek, Miloni and one of her classmates. We drove all the way from Sunnyvale to Carmel Valley Ranch for the breakfast. The ranch was HUGE and AMAZING!
Then we drove to Limekiln State Park along CA1 highway. It was easily one of the most beautiful drives! Every spot on the highway has such gorgeous views that it can’t be described in words. You have to go there to experience it yourself.
Here are few of many photographs that I took. It was just surreal!
Amazing piece of art installation near Golden Gate Bridge!
Installation of Mark di Suvero at Crissy Field is well under way! Dog walkers, runners, cyclists, and egrets all seem interested in observing these massive steel sculptures being moved into place.
Insect sized robot!!
The demonstration of the first controlled flight of an insect-sized robot is the culmination of more than a decade’s work, led by researchers at the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) and the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard.
Half the size of a paperclip, weighing less than a tenth of a gram, the robot was inspired by the biology of a fly, with submillimeter-scale anatomy and two wafer-thin wings that flap almost invisibly, 120 times per second.
Exploring the Dream Worlds of Os Gêmeos
Brazilian artists Otavio & Gustavo Pandolfo, identical twin brothers who create painted works together, are known under the moniker Os Gêmeos (@osgemeos), Portuguese for “The Twins.” Their distinct style features yellow-skinned, skinny caricatures that come from dreams they say they have both experienced. The twins’ stunning dream-world-to-real-world collaborative style is influenced by artistic family members in addition to traditional hip-hop culture and the diverse culture in Brazil.
Os Gêmeos have hosted exhibitions at the Los Angeles MoCA, The Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, Dépayz’arts in France and Museu Colecção Berardo in Lisbon, just to name a few. In addition, their street art can be found in Berlin, New York, Portugal, Florida, London and across Brazil.
