Photo of the Day: “Housekeeping” by Werner Schwehm

Photo of the Day: “Housekeeping” by Werner Schwehm

PHOTO BY WERNER SCHWEHM, FLICKR   THIS PHOTO BY WERNER SCHWEHM IS AN EXAMPLE OF GREAT PERSPECTIVE. With a reflection of trees coming from behind us, a wonderful view of a sky full of clouds in front, and a man doing his job in between, this is a confusing perspective at first. This is cleverly photographed, making the front and back windows almost look like one two-dimensional plane, and lends a cool, almost disorienting effect to the photo. This photo is super clean, super detailed, has very...

Deal of the Day: White PS4 Pro Destiny 2 Bundle for $349.99 on Amazon

Deal of the Day: White PS4 Pro Destiny 2 Bundle for $349.99 on Amazon

THIS BLACK FRIDAY HAS SEEN THE FIRST-EVER DISCOUNT ON THE SONY PLAYSTATION 4 PRO, with the basic 1TB package discounted from $399.99 to $349.99. However, I’ve found an even better deal on a cooler version of the console: The version above includes a white PS4 Pro 1TB system, white DS4 controller and the new Destiny 2 game, (normally $59.99 by itself) for the same price as the newly-discounted boring black version with no game included. This is personal preference, of course, but I think...

WATCH: Little Swimming Robot Has Possibly, Finally, Found the Source of the Fukishima Disaster Radiation

WATCH: Little Swimming Robot Has Possibly, Finally, Found the Source of the Fukishima Disaster Radiation

Watch the Mini Manbo robot (probably) find melted radioactive uranium fuel rods IN 2011, THE FUKUSHIMA DAIICHI NUCLEAR POWER PLANT EXPERIENCED A MELTDOWN due to damage caused by a tsunami following the Tōhoku earthquake. Ever since then, the plant has been leaking extremely dangerous radiation into the Pacific Ocean and surrounding area. The problem with radiation, is, obviously, that it’s dangerous. So dangerous that you can’t get near it to contain it, and even robots sent into...

Photo of the Day: “Peek” by Dan Parratt

PHOTO BY DAN PARRATT, FLICKR   EVEN ON FIRST GLANCE, THIS PHOTO BY DAN PARRATT, IS NOT AS MUNDANE AS THE SUBJECT MATTER SUGGESTS, In a great way, there’s something very painterly about this composition, and I also realized that it  is very appropriate for a Thanksgiving photo pick. There’s just something about the lighting. It has a rich softness and detail to it that really drew me into this photograph. I really love how the exposure allows me to see everything in this photo...
Photo of the Day: “Road to Enlightenment” by Matt Walker

Photo of the Day: “Road to Enlightenment” by Matt Walker

PHOTO BY MATT WALKER, FLICKR   THIS VIBRANT PHOTO, BY MATT WALKER, IS NOT YOUR AVERAGE LONG EXPOSURE, with the lights of traffic appearing as a strip of neon lights running through the wilderness. I really love the perspective of this photo, taken in California, taking full advantage of height as well as the perfect time of day to capture very dramatic clouds, a beautiful orange sky, and commuters completely unaware they are collectively making this art possible simply by going on their daily...
Tesla Announces Its New Roadster, and It’s So Fast That I Definitely Couldn’t Handle It, At All

Tesla Announces Its New Roadster, and It’s So Fast That I Definitely Couldn’t Handle It, At All

 ELON MUSK REVEALED THE TESLA ROADSTER LAST THURSDAY as a total surprise during the Tesla Semi-Truck reveal. A new car out-of-the-blue from Tesla is surprise enough, but wait, there’s more.   Commenting on the Roadster’s stats, Musk himself states what everybody is thinking: “These numbers sound nutty, but they’re real.”   The stats below rival, or beat, the most expensive, desirable and exclusive production cars currently in existence. These cars cost millions,...

Photo of the Day: “southern lesser long-nosed armadillo” by Alexander Dülks

PHOTO BY ALEXANDER DÜLKS, FLICKR   THIS ARCHITECTURAL PHOTO, BY ALEXANDER DÜLKS, IS PERFECTLY COMPOSED. And has perfect contrast, having a drama to it without being overly dark or bright.   I love good (and interesting) architecture, and this definitely fits that description. This is a photo is of HEMISFÈRIC, a building designed by architect Santiago Calatrava, and is, believe it or not, actually a movie theater in València, Spain. Featuring IMAX and 3D screenings, and being part of the City...

Photo of the Day: “Take a coffee break” by Kappo Moriyoshi (明遊快)

PHOTO BY KAPPO MORIYOSHI (明遊快), FLICKR   THIS PHOTO, BY KAPPO MORIYOSHI (明遊快), IS MYSTERIOUS. I’d never guess it was taken in an airport, but it was.   This great composition features a barely-visible silhouette seen through glass, and excellent use of dynamic lighting. This is candid photography done very well, and it really stood out to me.   Click here to see our other Photos of the...
Do Yourself a Favor and Watch This 330 pound Robot Do a Backflip

Do Yourself a Favor and Watch This 330 pound Robot Do a Backflip

 
 I LOVE BOSTON DYNAMICS ROBOT VIDEOS, and usually, being busy with robot-making, they don’t release new ones on their YouTube channel very often. This past week, however, we’ve been lucky enough to get two videos from the creators of the most hilarious and disturbingly lifelike robots I’ve ever seen. Check out the video above to see a very impressive robot backflip (plus a very amusing not-quite backflip)....
