The end of an Era

Earlier this month something unbelievable happened, StumbleUpon closed down.  I didn’t know it was founded in 2002.  I started using it in 2005, or 2006 I think.  I can’t remember exactly, I’m pretty sure that I started using the site well before that blog post, but who knows. Endless hours, nay, days were spent stumbling … Continued

It will never cease to amaze me with the ingenuity of people when it comes to LEGO contraptions. I’ve never seen one of these full size bridge girder movers, but watching this LEGO version makes me amazed at how humans have been able to make machines to make life easier.

Instead, you should take this 8K glory video of The Milky Way from Nikon.  Yes, it’s quite something, though parts of it look just a bit too surreal.  Like they were rendered. {Peta Pixel}  

Crazy Difficult Time-Lapse of NYC

Julian Tryba has a pretty neat Time-Lapse, or layer-lapse as they call it, of New York City: I admit, that was pretty ace.  Each scene in the video has as many as 300 different layers, all being independently turned on and off to the beat of the music.  A time-lapse done well to music is … Continued

This is a pretty neat diorama of a mix of LEGO scenes from the sequel trilogy.  What you can’t see from the photo is the moving ships that go around the perimeter.  Reddit video doesn’t let me embed it for some reason, so you’ll have to venture over there. {reddit}
