Theory Design’s Vice President of Design Ruta Menaghlazi and interior designer Adriene Ged are creating the interior design for Seagate Development Group’s furnished Burrata model in the Ancona neighborhood at Miromar Lakes Beach & Golf Club.  Priced at $3,295,000 with furnishings, the Burrata model includes 4,068 square feet under air and a massive outdoor living area measuring 1,058 square feet.  The open-concept plan features a living area that includes a spacious grand room, an island kitchen, and a dining area.  The plan’s study can be tasked as a formal dining room.  The grand room and the dining area have pocketing sliders that open to an outdoor living area featuring a two-sided fireplace, an outdoor kitchen, and conversation and dining areas.  The plan also features four bedrooms, one of which is a VIP guest suite, four and a half baths, a pool bath, and a three-car garage.  The master bedroom’s sitting area opens to the outdoors.  The master suite also includes walk-in closets and a bath with dual vanities, dual water closets, a free-standing tub, and a walk-in shower.

Rich Guzman, Principal Designer at R.G. Designs, Inc., has created a transitional modern exterior architectural style for the Burrata model.  Inside, Ruta and Adriene’s clean-lined, modern design will convey a timeless sense of casual elegance while counter-balancing the modern exterior with warm walnut, mid to dark-toned hardwood flooring, and matte black fixtures.  Reverse soffit ceiling details with LED back lighting will give the ceilings the appearance of floating in space.  The model’s roof has been completed and framing

Tesla Model 3’s Interior Camera Tracking Eye And Head Movement


The tiny interior camera of the Tesla Model 3 is capable of much more than most owners probably realize.

Attention was first drawn to the camera mounted within the rearview mirror last year. At the time, Tesla chief executive Elon Musk said it wasn’t currently operational and would only be enabled when Tesla owners can start using their Model 3s for autonomous Uber and Lyft services. Musk added it would act as a security camera in the event “someone messes up your car.”

However, while recently looking into the details of this camera, Twitter user greentheonly posted that he had discovered the camera has the ability to detect what the driver is doing at any given time.

Apparently, the camera can track the eye movements of the driver, including whether their eyes are looking down, to the side, or up. Additionally, the camera tracks head movement and whether or not the driver is looking to the left or to the right. It also has the ability to detect if someone is using a phone while behind the wheel and can even recognize if a driver is likely looking down while wearing sunglasses.

The most obvious reason for Tesla detecting these types of behaviors from drivers would be for it to develop some time of driver monitoring system. The automaker has been criticized in the past for offering semi-autonomous driving features without any kind of system that monitors the driver, like Cadillac’s Super Cruise system does.

However, there does appear

Swiggy’s cloud kitchen model is set to transform dining

When food delivery startup Swiggy started cloud kitchens three years ago, it was a sideshow in its food delivery business. The concept caught on as restaurant brands that had a following in one area could expand easily into new localities or even other cities. Investment in real estate was reduced because these kitchens could be smaller and didn’t need premium locations, apart from doing away with seating and the staff for serving.

Various models arose. Some introduced cloud kitchens in addition to restaurants for expansion, like Chennai’s Buhari becoming available in Coimbatore. Others like Rebel Foods created fully virtual brands that only came from dark kitchens. This became a new real estate and services play as restaurants only had to provide cooking staff while everything else, including cleaning and maintenance, could be outsourced.

Cloud kitchens caught a new impetus after the covid pandemic struck this year. Now even high-end restaurants in luxury hotels resorted to those as eating out took a nosedive and is yet to return to anywhere near the pre-covid levels. For example, Swiggy rolled out a Marriott-on-wheels with menus and prices tailored for delivery at home. Marriott could launch online-only brands whose specs varied from those of its on-premise dining.

“We help create new brands out of the existing kitchens of fine-dining restaurants,” says Vishal Bhatia, CEO, Swiggy New Supply. “For example, a premium restaurant for Chinese cuisine can use the same infrastructure to produce mass Chinese brands. We can help with the catalogue, pricing and discounting for it.”

This helps restaurants find new consumers and partially offset the under-utilization of kitchen facilities and culinary staff. “Everyone’s volumes have dropped and they’re looking for new revenue avenues,” says Bhatia.

Swiggy has co-created nearly 200 brands since the launch of this model using existing kitchens of restaurants in
