    This Video Lets You Travel at the Speed of Light (Sort Of)

    In our terrestrial view of things, the speed of light seems incredibly fast. But as soon as you view it against the vast distances of the universe, it's unfortunately very slow. This animation illustrates, in realtime, the journey of a photon of light emitted from the sun and traveling across a portion of the solar system.

    The Medieval Darth Vader Armor

    The Medieval Darth Vader Armor
    Gear | Film


    Prince Armory makes custom handcrafted armor, costumes, and leather products. Their  latest project is a full suit of medieval armor in the style of Darth Vader!
    "Conceptually this was a very challenging project. When you work on a very iconic character you have to think long and hard about how much liberty you want to take with the design. On one hand you don’t want it to play it too safe and have it a borderline carbon copy; that would be boring. And on the other you don’t want to go so far it is no longer recognizable or make design decisions that puts the fan base up in arms.
    So I settled on trying to capture a number of the design elements within the classic Vader such as the banding patterns and many design lines, and then expanded into the fantasy realm with the red inlays and articulated armor designs.
    The design scheme overall is of course very alternate universe. Ultimately I was going for a blend of Sci-Fi, Medieval, and Mystical Fantasy

    Veronika Richterova s Plastic Bottle Art
    Gear | Design
    Veronika Richterová, an artist from the Czech Republic, makes sculptures by heating and reshaping plastic bottles. She made plants and animals, depicting them in a highly realistic manner. More pics after more.
    "When I found out by chance, that plastic bottles could be deformed by heat I decided to create a sculpture from this material. Immediately, I had the idea that it could be called PET-art however, I took it only as one of my visual experimentations. I didn’t anticipate that plastic bottles would become such an obsession for me for many years. Since 2004 I have used thousands of bottles and have created hundreds of objects. In doing this work, I have developed many specific methods of technological processing."

    Mr Selfie

    Something we have all no doubt noticed is the increasing fixation with what is going on our smartphones - if it's not ourselves, then we regularly see other people walking down the street pre-occupied with their phones, we see buses and trains full of commuters fixated on their little screens desperate for some information fix and it’s not uncommon to see friends in restaurants interacting with their phones rather than each other - all missing what is going on around them and reducing their quality of life as a result.
    This short animation is a playful tale of this modern phenomenon...
