Alternate History Thursday – TIME

0

The above is a real time gif of the earth’s movement.  Just watch it, it moves at few frames a second, and after 24 hours, it will be back where it started.  Anyway, you could waste all day watching that, or you can take my word for it and then read the following: Time is … Continued

Speed is Bad for you

While I could only watch the above video for about 25 seconds before I got a headache, I figure I should at least give all my readers the pleasure of this lovely experience as well. Ryan Fox duct-taped a GoPro camera to the tire of a car, and then drove around while it was switched … Continued

Grand Teton Mosaic

I like making Mosaics.  I used to make them a lot, but I haven’t in awhile.  I used to make really great ones, but the program that I had was removed due to some copyright issue, and so it was never updated for anything but Windows XP 32 bit.  And it’s too memory intensive to … Continued

Waves of Grain

Keith Skretch has a interesting time-lapse video for us.  He took a piece of wood, and planed it down to nothing.  After each pass of the plane, he took a photo of the wood.  Repeat the process a few hundred times, combine the frames and add music and you’re presented with the above video. I … Continued

Joel Schat has put together a collection of timelapses from his travels across America.  Many of them are from National Parks, all of them are beautiful.  I embedded the YouTube version in this post because YouTube has the 4K resolution video.  Watch it in 4k.  Even if it takes you 4 days to buffer the video, … Continued

Life in the 3rd Person

GoPros, The Oculus Rift, 3-D printing, Arudino, all these things, combined with some ingenuity, and time produced this strange idea to make a camera rig that translates the world into the 3rd person.  I think it would give you a headache rather easily.  But if the story of wearing glasses that make everything upside down, … Continued
