I just came from The Martian, and I just have to say: Forget BB-8; I want a pet Sojourner! It's always been the cutest of our Mars rovers.

Light Appears to Drip from Trees in these Long-Exposure Photos by Vitor Schietti

by Christopher Jobson


For his series of experimental photography titled Impermanent Sculptures, photographer Vitor Schietti worked with fireworks and long-exposure photography to illuminate the branches and stems of trees in his native Brazil. The photos are a mixture of in-camera light painting, and a bit of post-processing that can combine up to 12 shots into a final image. He shares with us about the project:

The series is the result of several years of research on long exposure photography, and the usage of ND filters was vital to find a perfect balance between the fading twilight and the brightness of the fireworks. Only a few attempts were allowed per day, since the time frame during which this balance is possible is very narrow (30 to 50 minutes). The Brazilian central plateau, in a kind of savanna called “Cerrado” was the scenery for most of these experimentations. The margins of the lake Paranoa, the streets and some iconic monuments from Brasilia were also locations for some of the light paintings. It’s important to say the series is an ongoing process, and more will follow in the coming year or so.

You can see much more of Schietti’s photography on Flickr. (via This Isn’t Happiness)

A new 3D printer with the unique feature to design and make objects and devices with electronic components - video embedded below:

Voxel8 exists to disrupt the design and manufacture of electronic devices by providing new functional materials with a novel 3D printing platform. Desktop 3D printers today are constrained to printing thermoplastics or UV resins. Using Voxel8’s 3D printer, you can co-print matrix materials such as thermoplastics and highly conductive silver inks enabling customized electronic devices like quadcopters, electromagnets and fully functional 3D electromechanical assemblies.

Fist Bump with Traffic Signals

by dmitry


Walking up to this traffic you need to greet by a fist bump otherwise you wouldn’t be able to cross the street. The project called the Walkbump was created in Los Angeles by Alfredo Adán.


The solution proposed by the guy, except of being interesting and raising interest of passers-by, is also more hygienic than the standard button.

Musician Mike Love Samples Seemingly Random Syllables That Gradually Turn Into Lyrics

by Christopher Jobson

In this song by Hawaii-based reggae musician Mike Love, a seemingly random assortment of syllables slowly grows into a song over a period of three minutes. The song takes 12 loops to build before you can discern all of the lyrics plus layers of harmony, incredible considering a single mistake would essentially ruin the entire thing. It’s fun to listen all the way through first without any sort of reference, but if you’re interested, redditor Cybot made this handy chart to better visualize what Love is doing.

Apple's iOS devices have long included apps that you're unlikely to use (do you really need a stock tracker?), and that list only seems to be getting longer. That's potentially a big problem, especially when the company is still shipping 16GB flag...
