ka64:

I love the design of Black Velvetopia. It makes me feel relaxed and comfortable probably because of how dark it is with those lovely fluorescent colors everywhere. It’s one of the many video game locations I’d like to live in. uvu

Photographs That Reveal the Intricate Innards of Old Mechanical Calculators

Randy Laue

Via Laszlo Tenki

012-1

Photographer Kevin Twomey has a fascination with capturing complex objects in the most simple of compositions, and his series Low Tech is the epitome of this. The series features photos of old, mechanical calculators stripped bare, exposing the exquisitely complicated creations that they were from the inside out.

Similar to the advancements of cameras, calculators have evolved from a purely mechanical piece of machinery to digital gadgets that are now almost small enough to hide behind a silver dollar. Regardless of how large and cumbersome those old mechanic calculators were though, there is a certain beauty in the various designs that shows off their seemingly infinite intricacies.

The calculators themselves weren’t the only intricate aspect of this series though. To ensure he captured every motor, key and spring, Twomey took multiple shots of each composition and focus-stacked them using Helicon Focus. The results, as you can see below, are fascinating from top to bottom.

Saw It For You: Jurassic World (2015)

by kris

_1392673279Jurassic World (2015)

Synopsis. John Hammond’s dream of a thriving dinosaur amusement park is finally and successfully realized, but a genetic contingency designed to take away the dinosaurs’ legs if they escape backfires, and instead gives the dinosaurs extra legs.

Tagline. They thought they didn’t have a leg to stand on. Now they’re legging it for their lives.

Social media promotion. “Tweet with hashtag #legday for a chance to win Chris Pratt’s 1998 Ford Taurus.”

Trivia

  • Jurassic World is the first film in the Jurassic Park franchise to be written by Fanfiction.net user SnapexMalfoy2039.
  • Chris Pratt’s character’s name, “John Clevergirl,” is a reference to the original Jurassic Park (1993).
  • Animators spent four months under the direction of Phil Tippett to compose the 200+ effects shots of the movie’s villain: a super-intelligent ultrasaurus leg with a knee-mounted surface-to-air missile launcher.
  • This movie perhaps leans the hardest on the franchise’s “man vs. the natural order” subtext, as evidenced by the final line of dialogue, “That settles it. Science can only destroy.”
  • This is director Colin Trevorrow’s first film, not counting his other movie.

Mistakes

  • Continuity. A flashlight changes hands between shots during the scene where scientists discover a dead dilophosaur had been evolving rudimentary helicopter blades.
  • An animal that is just “a wheel of legs” without a brain, digestive tract or internal organs would not be able to commandeer an emergency loudspeaker system.
  • Incorrectly regarded as goof. Donald Gennaro (Martin Ferrero) returns, a lawyer who was torn in half and eaten in the original Jurassic Park. A scene which was cut for time explains his survival — when asked about it, Gennaro replies “That was a long time ago.”
  • Despite the similarity of the words, dinosaurs would not be attracted to dynamite.
  • Chairwoman Beth Lifefindsaway (Bryce Dallas Howard) tells Clevergirl to have a seat across from her. When the camera angle changes, she is clearly the actress who played Victoria from The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn.
  • Technical error. When the movie ends, the credits cannot roll past the words “The End” which never fade out and leave the screen. The credits crowd and bunch up beneath, filling the screen with a jumble of white letters. In most theaters, there is an apology, and the credits are then read aloud by an usher.

Callbacks and Homages

  • John Hammond Jr. greets investors by extending his toilet seat from its stall on hydraulic rails (The Lost World)
  • The surface of the water in the toilet bowl ripples from a low bass sound (Jurassic Park)
  • Every time Clevergirl is referred to by his last name (Jurassic Park)
  • All the dinosaurs have sharp teeth (Jurassic Park, The Lost World, Jurassic Park 3)
  • The title Jurassic World contains the word “Jurassic” (Jurassic Park, Jurassic Park 3)
  • Characters refer to elevators as ianmalcolms, as in the line “Hold the ianmalcolm for me, wouldja?” (Jurassic Park)
  • A red vial is labeled “Grimlock DNA” (Transformers: Age of Extinction)

Memorable Quotes

Security system AI. 5-LEGGED VELOCIRAPTOR NOT IDENTIFIED AS DINOSAUR. OPENING GATE.

John Clevergirl. Your T-rex has evolved enough legs to jump into low Earth orbit.
Scientist. My God.

Beth Lifefindsaway. We can escape to the Galaxy, my personal boat. It’s moored in Dock B.
John Clevergirl. If it’s the only way off the island, we might have a fight on our hands. Will the others make it back in time?
Beth Lifefindsaway. We might have to guard the ship until then. We’d have to act as guardians.
John Clevergirl. Guardians of the Galaxy. I like the sound of that.
T-Rex. (shrugs directly into camera)
