Such beautiful work it reminds me a bit of how Steve Ellis painted a series of cars. By taking photographs of matchbox cars after they had been scratched up a bit, he would then paint in details that only real sized cars would have. Creating an ambiguity of scale, that is so pleasing in the work that Fabian Oefner has just shared.
Urban Screen is a group of 8 contributors based in Bremen, Germany who have backgrounds in Architecture, Music, Stage Design, and Media art. They create custom made large scale projections of urban surfaces. This video documents an experiment that they are working on called Search Light. The projector is on a gimbal that is connected to a realtime 3d map of the room, allowing for amazing dynamic projections and for experimentation around artful and purpose driven use cases.
Prime Air is a service that Amazon is developing who's goal is to get customer's deliveries to them in 30 minutes or less. The R&D team at Amazon is working on using drones to deliver small packages, up to five pounds, which accounts for 86 percent of the items sold on amazon.
Amazon is working with the FAA to advance the rules and regulations to make this possible, which they say will take some years, with a goal as early as 2015. They also mention safety as their top priority.
It's sorta sad that the Beastie Boys are going after Goldie Blox for use of their song. Goldie Blox is a Small company, now, and it's likely the 7.2 millions plays will spern people to buy "Girls" from the Beastie Boys.
To think that it took until 2013 for this to happen. Thank you Debbie Sterling. The work that you are doing here is the most important kind. Creating a generation of future citizens that are interested in how things work. Making it desirable and competitive amongst the sexes, is truly inspiring. To see a future where there are rooms of engineers that are equal parts male as they are female will ensure a future that has less disease, less poverty, less war, and higher standards of living for all. Girls! Let's do this.
As the legal battle ensues between the Beastie Boys and Goldie Blox, I suggest that you buy from both sides of the argument.
This movies looks like a lot of fun for kids and adults. I can't help but feel like the Will Arnett's Batman character is a lot like Bat Dad.
Andrew Brown shared this, and I think it's a great combination of diagrammatic narrative that truly explains what is going on. Also found this from Scott Burns, an explanantion of wealth in america, and how distorted it has become.
Wealth Redistribution. It is commendable to hear about Bill Gates, and Warren Buffet giving a bunch of there money to charity to build educational and cultural resource. It would also be great to see the Wealthiest American look towards a plan that would distribute wealth, and agree to an appropriate tax plan.
I saw this on Gawker today. It reminded me of how ridiculous attack ads are. I sort of wish that as a culture we would follow that simple rule we all learned in kindergarden.

Lego's were a huge inspiration to me as a child. Playing with legos gave me an understanding of geometry, color, composition, and even engineering. Lego seems to be a company that despite innovations in technology has managed to stay relevant and capture the imaginations of children and adults alike. I recently ran into an article pimping a new book by called Beautiful LEGO, by Mike Doyle.

I have been following this project for a while, and am really excited to see where it's headed.
America! F%$ Yeah!
GTA V has broken all kinds of records, and is beginning to ripple it's way into pop culture. I was surprised to see a series of in-game time lapses that demonstrate how beautiful the experience is. The huge team at Rockstar has done a beautiful job creating a world to play in.
A bonus... learn how to get inside a jumbo jet and fly it around.
