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

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

Interactive Wooden Landscape

This is pretty neat, ETM: Exploration Through Motion is an interesting view of a once static asset.  A team of students from the Philadelphia University created this as their final project in Design 1.  Together, they took the Thomas Moran painting “Grand Canyon of the Colorado River”, and made a 3D laser cut map diorama … Continued

Norwegian Time-Lapse

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted a time-lapse.  Well, I think it has anyway.  So please, watch the above, it’s longer than previous ones at 5 minutes, but it’s just as spectacular as any I’ve posted in the past.  There are some spots where the clouds look unreal.  The music is well paced and soothing. … Continued

Get your Inauguration Coverage Here

No, not here, I’m not live streaming this mess, at Twitter.  Or, through Twitter, specifically at inauguration.twitter.com, which redirects you to a place holder page until it starts tomorrow morning.  Do not fear though, you’re getting the PBS News Hour coverage of the event, not some Twitterized view.  Though, don’t worry, I’m sure it will be controversy … Continued

HD B&W Storms

0

Black and White is an often overlooked area of photography.  Especially when time-lapse storm footage is done.  There’s something about shooting in black and white that gives everything a more mysterious, serious, yet fantasy look.  Mike Olbinski shot the entire sequence in black and white.  Yes, there is some post-processing work done, but it’s natural black … Continued

A Hilbert curve is one of those weird things in mathematics.  Does it have any use in real life, or is it just something to theorize about?  Well, this is the modern age, we have the technology to make complex Hilbert curves in real life.  This is also the internet, which is a series of … Continued

360° DSLR

0

You know that I love 360° video and photo.  I think it’s the next big thing in the world of photography.  Up until now the only way to get really high quality content was to attach multiple cameras together in rigs and stitch the resulting footage after the fact.  That’s all changing now.  Sphere is … Continued

A Super Fast GoPro!

0

YouTube users Sam and Niko together with their team at Corridor Digital 3-D printed an arrow casing for a GoPro.  They then placed it into an air cannon and fired it. It went better than expected.  The initial launch was successful, but the follow up straight up resulted in a broken GoPro. Not to worry, … Continued

Modern Organs

0

Wendell Kapustiak built a modern Pipe Organ.  Modern in the sense that naturally, it’s computer controlled.  The air is supplied by a modified server cooling fan. The keys are played by an Arduino.  And the songs are chosen by a web interfaced run on a Rasberry Pi. It is pretty neat, I will give him … Continued
