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

Who Built America

I might be 4 years past due here, but this series has been extremely fun to watch. It’s also been a learning experience.  You know, back to the basics of The History Channel.  Before it turned into shitty reality TV and half-baked conspiracy theories.

Computer Control Panel

Have you ever wanted a borderline useless master control panel for your computer?  You know, something that looks like the controls from Star Trek, or Star Wars.  Well, reddit user smashcuts has built his own.  Why, because he wanted to, that’s why. If you ever wanted to hang something very heavy that served almost no … Continued
