Alternate History Thursday: 42nd Street

0

While 42nd Street doesn’t exactly cut Manhattan in half, it was the proverbial divide of the city.  Those in the north who were closer to the mainland were convinced that the government’s story was correct, there was nothing to fear, this was only a temporary glitch on the way towards a better world tomorrow.  As you … Continued

DIY 3D LED POV

0

Is that enough acronyms in the title?  No, I think I can get a few more, don’t you?  I find the rotating LED signs interesting, though useless.  I can’t think of a reason to make one, and as such, I don’t really want to spend too much of my already valuable time making one.  I … Continued

The Things you can do with a GoPro

0

For real, who would have thought years ago that we would be spending time watching animals drink water from a bucket on a farm?  This is the type of nature show you want to watch.  Except, maybe in the wild, not on a farm, with picturesque farm animals. It is neat though seeing how the … Continued

To the Edge of Space

0

Complete in full 360° glory!  Some crazy Russians (might not actually be Russians, but rather great Capitalists!) have attached a Samsung Gear 360 camera to the tail of a MiG as it flew into the stratosphere at speeds approaching Mach 2.  I will say, traveling at supersonic speeds is one of my all time dreams, … Continued

Alternate History Thursday: Now What Indeed?

0

Yes, what to do now?  Panic had not ensued yet, though as the day wore on, people were loosing their patience.  A storm was on the horizon for January 03, and people didn’t know if it was still coming, or if it had been blown out to sea.  By 1pm, the Governor of New York … Continued

Orion Over Sky

0

Sriram Murali created the above video to show the effects that light pollution has on the beautiful night sky.  In it, he focuses on the constellation Orion, and how our perception of it changes based on the light density of the area we view it from.  The entire thing is a great example of one … Continued

Hidden Tombs

Europe is full of old stuff.  So many old things are so old that it’s not a surprise to people when records are misplaced, and memories lost to time.  That just so happens to have been the case under the floor of St. Mary’s Church in London.  While renovating the church in order to turn … Continued

360 Drone Racing

0

More like a practice run if you ask me.  I’ve flown drones like this before, they are not easy to control, I know I would crash it trying to make those sharp turns.  One thing I think should be kept out of these drone videos though is the audio.  I don’t want, or need to … Continued

Infrared Timelapse

0

I do love some Infrared photography.  There’s something awesome and other-worldly about it that is so enticing.  This time-lapse of Oregon is done completely in infrared.  I will say, some of the shots are pretty lost.  The nightscapes, and the meh mountainsides, those just look like filtered B&W.  There are a few nice sections of … Continued

The Art of the Title Screen

0

I may have posted about Naked Jakey before, or I may not have.  I’m too bothered to look up my usual post history.  I found him with his Halo Changed Everything video series. In the above, he goes over the under appreciated world of Video Game title screens.  Seriously, how often do you pay attention … Continued
