Foto Set of Inside The World's Largest Cruise Ship

The Oasis Of The Seas , the new cruise ship from Royal Caribbean International, is also the world's largest ship. What do you think? In the light of the global recession, is this luminous luxury or idiotic extravagance? Are you dying to get on board or would you rather row?

Foto Set of Amazing Futuristic Chairs

Foto set of amazing futuristic designer chairs. Great ideas great designs.

This colorful set of suitcases could be combined into a sofa (with lots of storage space) when you need to take a load off.

This isn't your grandmother's rocking. Novague's rocking chair would contain a dyanmo within that could convert the mechanic energy produced by your rocking on the chair to power its LED reading lamp.

Named after Morpheus, the ancient Greek god of sleep, the Morfeo sofa-bed has bendable Shrek-like reading lamp "ears" on either side.

This sofa doubles as a sitting device and a thought-portrait. Designers Lucas Maassen and Dries Verbruggen build the customized sofa by capturing just seconds of brain activity through EEG, then using the "brain waves" to carve your mental map into a block of foam.

The Obelisk is a tower of stackable lawn furniture. It can be four chairs and a table -- or a giant sculptural pod.

The design concept for "Untitled Chair" features 100 gas shock absorbers that allow the piece of furniture to respond to pressure and adjust its shape around a human's form.

The Breathing Chair, inspired by plant cells, looks like a big block of tofu. The designer carefully calculated the size and location of the triangular voids in the chair to ensure that they could bend and flex around pressure. The block compresses into a chair-like shape when a person sits down.

The Robotic Chair can self-destruct, then put itself back together again. With a "brain" in its seat controlling its movement, the chair can collapse into a heap, then gradually stabilize itself, finding its footing, and piecing its legs back together again.

The ultimate chair for music lovers and people who always have to be plugged in. The Sonic Chair has a silver arm that can hold a computer or iPod, or even be attached to a computer monitor. Speakers inside the pod ensure the ultimate music-listening experience.

The Stardust line of sofas and pillows look innocuous during the day -- simple, white boxy furniture -- then come alive in the evening, glowing from within.

Foto Set of Avatar The Movie

COSTING more than £180million, it is the most expensive film ever. Avatar, created by Titanic director JAMES CAMERON the lavish 3D sci-fi flick is not released until December 18 but is already being hailed as the film that will change the future of cinema. The Internet is buzzed with the topic on Avatar (not the Avatar AirBender) including the photo, poster, video clips, teasers and trailers.

Of course, the film is making a buzz because of this technology, but Cameron is keen to stress that film, as ever, is about story, and the aim is not to bamboozle and distract viewers with special effects.

It's not the first time cinema has flirted with 3D - Alfred Hitchcock even experimented with the technology when he filmed Dial M for Murder in the 1950s.

But the results have often been derided, either for hokey effects or poor stories, with Spy Kids 3D and Journey to the Centre of the Earth both getting a lukewarm reception.

The Avatar storyline

It focuses on Jake Sully, played by Sam Worthington, who took one of the lead roles in this summer's Terminator 4, on Cameron's recommendation.

Jake is a former Marine who is confined to a wheelchair following a war on Earth. He is selected to take part in the Avatar program - where his mind will control a healthy body on a remote world - and sent to Pandora, a rainforest-covered moon with a mix of beautiful and terrifying creatures, known as the Na'vi.

These are sentient, humanoid beings, considered primitive by humans - but this turns out to be a grave misjudgment once humans decide to savagely claim the world as their own.

Meanwhile, Jake has to decide where his allegiances lie in a battle which will decide the fate of the two planets.

The creature above looks to be some sort of strange mix between Predator and Tron.
