Compressed Water Rocket

0

Often called a Pop bottle rocket, or something similar.  This is something else entirely.  This is a true multi-stage rocket powered by water and air that reaches up to 800 feet in altitude.  I particularly like the Red, White, and Blue “exhaust” I remember spending Saturday afternoons with the car compressor and a cork launching … Continued

To the Edge of Space

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

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

Voyageurs Northern Lights

0

In 8K! Well, if you can even render 8K on your puny monitor that is.  This was taken up in Voyageurs National Park, way up in northern Minnesota, like, way up there on the border of Canada.  It’s not a place that’s easy to get to as much of the park consists of lakes and rivers, … Continued

Halo SkeeBall

Halo’s Forge mode is one of those zany things that will never cease to amaze you.  Yes, there has been the more traditional death match maps made, but the video above is a version of Skee Ball, the classic arcade game where you’re not allowed to climb on the ramps. {reddit}

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

Interactive Wooden Landscape

0

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

The Photo’s Rise

0

For over 150 years The New York Times has been the pre-emetitive news paper of the United States.  Yes, in recent times it has started to lean more towards the left, but it still presents mostly all sides of a story.  I won’t get into the politics of the paper, that’s not worth the effort. … Continued
