#INSPIREDPINGS - July 2017 Issue

Each month we bring together the best stories from the worlds of live events, experiential and advertising communications in our blog #INSPIREDPINGS - celebrating the best "lightbulb" moments and ideas from across the Web. This month we take a look how London's iconic black cab is going electric, Australia's first storytelling hotel, and much more.

CREATIVE AND INNOVATIVE THINKING

London’s iconic black cabs are going electric

The iconic London Taxi has been re-invented as the ‘TX’, which uses eCity technology to run for about 70 miles on the battery, before switching over to a petrol engine for a range of about 400 miles. The TX retains the same look and size as the of the classic design but with a number of features that make it truly a vehicle of the future, alongside the obvious benefit of it being better for the environment.

Lucid Motors new luxury vehicle feels like you’re riding in a private jet

Lucid Motor’s have launched the Lucid Air, the all-electric, self-driving car that will rival Elon Musk’s Tesla. The luxurious car will set you back $100,000 and early footage released of the prototype shows it reaching an impressive 235 mph.

IDEAS THAT CONNECT AND ENGAGE AUDIENCES

65,000 Green Day fans come together to sing Bohemian Rhapsody

Whilst waiting for Green Day to come on stage for their recent show in London’s Hyde Park, their 65,000 fans sang a perfect rendition of Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody. Watch the amazing version of this iconic song, filmed from a camera set up on the band’s drum kit.

New Order perform a series of intimate gigs as part of this year’s Manchester International Festival

New Order, a band synonymous with Manchester, has worked with artist Liam Gillick, who has created an incredible stage set and light experience for the band, and composer-arranger Joe Duddell, who has reinvented their music with help from a 12-strong synthesiser ensemble from the Royal Northern College of Music, for an incredible series of intimate gigs at the Old Granada Studios in Manchester.

INSPIRATION FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD

Australia’s first storytelling hotel opens in Hobart

The MACq 01 hotel has opened its doors as Australia's first storytelling hotel, located on the historic MacQuarie Wharf in the heart of Hobart. The hotel offers guests a “captivating storytelling experience”, with each room telling the story of a separate character, with a unique illustration on every door and artefacts relating to that character inside. The hotel also boasts a master storyteller and team of full-time storytellers who can talk guests through the journey by engaging with various touch points and historical artefacts throughout the hotel.
