Photographer Nick Veasey (previously) captures common objects through the wonders of X-ray technology. Everything turns transparent to eagerly reveal its secrets for the photographer, and we get to see everyday objects as a sight not usually seen.
I look at this and I think, how does this even work? Indoor diving I can understand, but indoor skydiving is a whole different plate. For skydiving you expect to jump thousands of feet, which a moderately high building would probably not be able to accomplish. Then again, you add enough perspective, and things just might fall into place. Warsaw studio Moko Architects has plans to build an indoor diving and skydiving center.
Let’s imagine the New York skyline were to be magically transported to some other planet of our solar system. Of course they won’t be able to last very long in most of those situations, but since we are transporting the entire skyline to different planets already, let’s assume it does stay recognizable, and available to be photographed for a while. This set of photographs imagines what the skyline would look like (or looks like) on these planets, in order of Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune.
Watchmaker Ulysse Nardin teamed up with HBO to create a special limited edition watch inspired by the Game of Thrones series. The watch isn’t particularly high on Game of Thrones, except the name and the licensing. It is based off the Ulysse Nardin “Black Sea” rugged diving chronograph.
Two research teams used micro-CT 3D X-ray scans to look at what is going on inside the cocoon and get a good look at how caterpillars transform into butterflies. They routinely scanned a chrysalis during its metamorphosis and generated 3D models of its organs and various parts to create the video we see here.
Now that is one sexy bow that warriors will be clammering to have in their arsenal. Probably not for battle or practical “bow use”, but for the sheer style and beauty that this would bring to an enthusiast. Made from lightweight plastic and a few metal pieces, this bow kind of takes a victory for its looks. Costs $119.
Mario might kick goomba and koopa troopa as all the time, but piranha plants, well they’re something poor Mario can’t take on all too often. And if he saw this one, he might as well quit his plumbing job and find another life somewhere else. This six foot tall piranha plant may be made out of foam and cardboard, but it is in no way benign. This thing eats non dairy creamer and spits out fire balls!
The biggest enemy of computing in the warm weather is the sweaty palms you get from your mouse. BMW has taken heed to the problem and developed a mouse that it claims will solve the problem of sweaty palms. BMW DesignworksUSA teamed up with Thermaltake to develop a high tech gaming mouse, the result being the Level 10 M mouse.
