If anything unusual happens to you Friday, you’ll be right to say it was “once in a blue moon.”

The July 31 appearance of the month’s second full moon will be the first such occurrence in the Americas since August 2012. Every month has a full moon, but because the lunar cycle and the calendar year aren’t perfectly synched, about every three years we wind up with two in the same calendar month.

But Earth’s satellite will most likely not appear blue at all.

How Outer Space is Becoming the Next Internet

 An hour after sunrise on June 28, Mike Safyan and nine co-workers from Planet Labs gathered in their San Francisco office for a pancake breakfast. It was a Sunday, so business was closed.

But this weekend morning was too momentous for Safyan and crew to stay home. Their 5-year-old start-up, which builds shoebox-sized satellites to orbit Earth and capture images of the planet, had eight “doves,” as they’re known, aboard an unmanned SpaceX capsule that was headed for the International Space Station.

If all went as planned, within about a month those satellites would join a fleet of 36 Planet Labs doves orbiting the Earth.

Honda debuts new Accord with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support

The car company opened a new research and development facility in Mountain View Thursday, the company’s largest such facility outside of its headquarters in Japan. Honda also unveiled its new 2016 Accord, which will be the first in the company’s lineup to support both Apple’s CarPlay and Google’s Android Auto platforms.

The refreshed Accord sports a redesigned exterior that Honda says is sportier and “more sophisticated” with a new aluminum hood and 19-inch wheels. Inside, the car is equipped with a 7-inch touchscreen display that supports both Apple CarPlay and Google’s Android Auto. The car will be available in the same four- and six-cylinder engine variations as the 2015 Accord.

Honda says it plans to make Android Auto and CarPlay available to more of its cars, but didn’t elaborate on which cars might be next to get the update.

How That Lexus Hoverboard Actually Works

This week, Lexus introduced a short teaser video for SLIDE, a hoverboard that appears to not just live up to our Back to the Future II dreams but, at least stylistically, improve on them. Better yet, it’s more science than science fiction. Here’s how it works—and why you won’t find one at Toys’R’Us any time soon.

Let’s start with that teaser video, a scant 37 seconds of hoverboard hype that almost prompts more skepticism than excitement. A bamboo and carbon fiber skateboard, emitting wisps of smoke, levitates an inch or two off of what appears to be a concrete surface. A foot approaches as if to mount and ride—and then nothing. We cut away.

That’s not a lot to put one’s faith in. We’re barely a year past the most recent convincing hoverboard hoax—a Funny or Die promotion, it turned out—and are halfway through the year in which BTTFII took place, a ripe time for attention-grabbing tie-ins.

Web design is dead

Web design is (finally!) dying of irrelevance. Web pages themselves are no longer the center of the Internet experience, which is why designers need to move on to the next challenges — products and ecosystems — if they want to stay relevant.

Web design has no future — a risky statement I know, but this article explains why it has no future and what we, as designers, can do about it. As a discipline, web design has already exhausted its possibilities, an emerging combination of tech and cultural trends highlight the need for a broader approach.

Let’s start with the symptoms of this imminent death.
