The sky has immense beauty to show, and the talented cameraman has the skill to capture the beautiful glimpses that the universe shows us. Astronomy Photographer of the Year contest looks at numerous such photographs of astounding beauty to select a winner. The shortlist for this year’s photographs capturing the sky, space, and the rare phenomenon that are unlikely to be seen anytime soon.
Not often does our world throw up such coolness as starships circling airports. Actually, it never really does that, but that doesn’t mean we can’t imagine. Since Star Wars Episode VII is in the works, you can expect a lot of things related to the movie making rounds. In that vein, checkout this sweet video that shows the Frankfurt Airport transformed into an Imperial Starport.
‘Free Your Beard’ advertising campaign from razor company Schick was obviously intended to encourage people on the path of getting rid of their beards. We’ll say they missed the mark, and missed it good. Apparently, a beard is an animal uncomfortably sticking to your face, and one you would like to get rid of.
There was a time when Steampunk was super hot, and you could see all things Steampunk make rounds of the web. It may be past its prime for the moment, but Steampunk as art is here to stay. The sculptures here aren’t essentially Steampunk, though the influence is clear. Made by French sculptor Alain Bellino, the sculptures are often made by transforming old items into various shapes.
Whether you prefer the hacking and slashing style of Westeros, or the succinct water dance of Bravos, you need a sword in your hand. Since you don’t want to slash anyone with your sword either, it is better to give up on the Valyrian steel, or steel for that matter; foam is where the action is. The latex weapon is safer, and you could put it to good use in LARPing, reenacting, and roleplaying.
As the houses of Westeros war, they haven’t forgotten the importance of sports. Since the Football/Soccer world cup is the flavor of sports for the moment, it is absolutely necessary the houses and characters from Game of Thrones get uniforms to play the game.
BugJuggler the robot is the next big thing that will make circus jugglers look like the noobs that they are. This robot is massive; standing at 70 feet tall; and it’s built for singular purpose, that of juggling cars. The gigantic bot will pick up a car, throw it in the air, and catch it again. We suppose it could do the juggling with any car model that ever existed, but it seems partial to the VW Bug; hence the name.
Lords and Ladies of Westeros can keep playing their little game all they want. When all is said and done, the houses will fall before their true lords, the Pugs of Westeros. It’s difficult not to swear fealty to these pugs; they look pretty good and very much comfortable with the part they play.
All you need to do is take a good, hard look, and you realize the Soccer World Cup logo is actually a facepalming dude. It seems this matches Captain Picard, but there’s hardly a resemblance, except the facepalm of course.
These bird inspired shoes take up the mantle of going from a tad strange to a whole new level of weird. The range starts with shoes that have slightly weird shape and bird claw-like heels. Then the range progresses into shoes that look increasingly like a bird, until you run into a shoe where you would feel like you’re shoving your foot into a taxidermied bird.
