Starting with the Roman Republic in 300BC and continued during the Roman Empire, the Roman State built and maintained hundreds of thousands of miles of roads. The roads were important for the movement of people, trade, and of course, armies. At its height, the empire had over 250,000 miles of roads – of which 50,000 miles were paved. So what would it take for the representation of these ancient roads in the modern world? A subway map, of course!
Sasha Trubetskoy created this map representing Roman roads in 125 AD in a fashion similar to modern subway maps. Sasha says the map involved a lot of research since there was no single consistent source, plus, some creative liberties had to be taken for the map.
Artist/photographer Kimberly Money created this set of makeup and images to represent the 12 signs of the zodiac. For this set, the artist did the makeup and photography all by herself, connecting her iPhone to the camera and using the phone as the trigger. So what did she do for the shot that includes both her hands? Camera triggered by toe!
It is tough to believe this is a pencil drawing, not a photo. However, those doubts can be let to rest after seeing that the artist has also uploaded a video of the process. The drawing is the work of artist U.N.I.C.O or Freddy Valverde, who has quite a selection of these hyper-realistic drawings in his portfolio.
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
Of all the appliances that have made life easier at home, the task of folding laundry still falls to manual labor. Well, there’s hope on that front now, with good hope that in a few years, you can have a bot to fold laundry. There are a handful of contenders in the field for folding laundry, one of them being FoldiMate. This bot is the size of a European washer and can (optionally) scent and dewrinkle clothes while it folds them.
Artist Gaku carves exquisite patterns on a variety of fruits and vegetables. Food carving is called mukimono in Japan, and apparently, carved food is often served as a side dish. The artist has to be rather quick with his hands as oxidation sets in the moment the fruit is cut, and discolored edibles don’t look this picturesque.
