In this video we have tried to show movement and the enormous chromatic beauty of corals, a kind of marine animals that despite being one of the oldest animals on our planet, are mostly unknown.
You will discover its stunning beauty, its spectacular colors and the mystery of his movements.
To capture these images it was necessary to apply the technique of time lapse as the slow movements of these animals are very difficult to see at a glance.
The use of macro lens gives a large enough vision to contemplate the huge variety of colorful species.

Who remembers in the early 80's when the first laser discs came out and there was an arcade game named Dragon's Lair? The graphics were akin to a Disney cartoon and the game was very challenging. Well, some arcade owners cranked up the difficulty but others made it pretty easy to complete.
I must have wasted a roll or two in quarters on this bad boy before I finaly completed it but here is the complete playthrough of the game.
Bonus! Shortly thereafter, Space Ace came to the arcades. I never finished that game but now I can watch the playthrough for that one also.

We have another touching story about a young boy from Australia and his best friend - a magpie. The bird's name is Penguin, and she was rescued as a baby by her owner, 10-year-old Noah Bloom. Cameron Bloom, Noah's mother, is a professional photographer who has been capturing the relationship as it blossoms.

Here is a good project for anyone with a 3D printer. In this project as described in the first episode of the Mojoptix podcast and video series, we see a demonstration of how to create a 3D printed sundial that can display the time in digital format without electronics.
The sundial works by allowing light to pass through a carefully arranged array of "tiny tunnels" that turn the individual pixels of the display off and on as the Sun moves through the sky.
For anyone interested but unable to 3D-print the parts themselves, kits are available for purchase that come with all the parts needed to assemble the device.

Just when I thought Send Me To Heaven was the best prank ever dealt to mobile phone types, Apple nixes the headphone jack and someone comes along to exploit the void. Bravo, you internet wag. Bra-VO.

David Roy's kinetic wood sculptures are a symphony of movement, but the man who made them didn't always consider himself an artist. A one-time physics major and mainframe programmer, David abandoned the sciences, threw practicality to the wind, and instead, started his own company, "Wood That Works." Today, from a small Ashford, Connecticut wood shop, he sells his wares for up to $4,000 a piece.

The first large-scale study of ancient feline DNA has finally been completed, and the results reveal how our inscrutable friends were domesticated in the Near East and Egypt some 15,000 years ago, before spreading across the globe and into our hearts. Cats sailed with Vikings to conquer the world.

The luxurious Hotel del Salto opened in 1928 to welcome wealthy travelers visiting the Tequendama Falls area, in Colombia. So where did it all go wrong? Unfortunately, due to non existent regulations of Colombian authorities, the Bogota river was allowed to become contaminated by industrial waste. The reputation of the area as a tourist destination was badly damaged as a result, and tourists quickly stopped visiting.

Cost and difficulty of setup have, to date, kept me from getting a 3D printer. I can think of like a bazillion things I'd do with one if they weren't such a pain in the ass to get going and keep alive. Monoprice is now offering something that appears to allay my concerns: the Select Mini 3D Printer. All it needs is minor calibration out of the box (you have to level the heated bed) and you can print with a variety of materials from a micro SD card or your computer via USB. Beyond nifty and cheap enough to take a gamble on, I may pull the trigger on this one.

In the south of The Netherlands, about an hour's drive away from my buddy Jer, there is an annual event worthy of this photo spread and media coverage.

Inspired by my love for pizza and a certain gang of underground teenage turtles, this Ninja Throwing Slice is made using real pizza from my family's pizzeria in Maine. This piece was originally created for the AmDC Threat exhibition that took place in March of 2012. Initially dubbed "Ninja Throwing Slices," in reference to the Threat show, the vocabulary has since evolved. You may now refer to a single piece as a "Forever Slice."
