SPARKED: A Live Interaction Between Humans and Quadcopters

Published on 22 Sep 2014

Cirque du Soleil, ETH Zurich, and Verity Studios have partnered to develop a short film featuring 10 quadcopters in a flying dance performance. The collaboration resulted in a unique, interactive choreography where humans and drones move in sync. Precise computer control allows for a large performance and movement vocabulary of the quadcopters and opens the door to many more applications in the future.

Old Bicycle Parts Become Brilliant New Bike Racks – CityLab   Leave a comment

Old Bicycle Parts Become Brilliant New Bike Racks – CityLab.

Innovative, creative and practical.

 

“Old Bicycle Parts Become Brilliant New Bike Racks

Recycling, Picasso-style.

Andreas Scheiger

Technically, turning bike handlebars and seats into something of a bull was Picasso’s idea first. But Austrian designer Andreas Scheiger’s brilliant interpretation of Picasso’s Tête de Taureau shows how all sorts of modern bike parts can become gorgeously functional.

Scheiger has created a whole series of these bicycle hunting trophies, which can hold anything from umbrellas to hats to more bikes. A few pre-made versions are for sale in his online shop, but he also shows those who are so inclined how he made them here.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Rube Goldberg machinecontraptioninventiondevice, or apparatus is a deliberately over-engineered or overdone machine that performs a very simple task in a very complicated fashion, usually including a chain reaction.

Eyes Can Hear | design mind   Leave a comment

 

Jared Ficklin in this blog article states : ” Making sound visible is a hobby of mine. After years pursuing real-time sound visualization, I became intrigued by the idea of eliminating time and allowing listeners to take in an entire song as a single visual impression. The result reveals an unseen beauty. “

These animals unbelievably made from tissue paper are so fun   Leave a comment

“In what might be the most creative use of tissue ever, Fuyu Arai created this wonderful stop motion animation video for Nepia, a Japanese tissue paper company. It shows different animals like birds, dogs, kangaroos, frogs, etc. being formed through just tissue paper. The animation is so fluid that you almost believe that these tissue animals are alive.

Here’s the full video. The making of video that shows how all of this was done is below it.”

The entire alphabet, photographed on butterfly wings   Leave a comment

 

“Nature photographer Kjell Bloch Sandved has amassed a massive collection of butterfly and moth wings, capturing a host of unusual patterns. Using those patterns, he has assembled entire butterfly alphabets.

This is just one of Sandved’s alphabets; he has a second butterfly alphabet and a more varied nature alphabet. He has posters of the alphabets available on his website, but he also sells custom prints that let you spell out names or messages in butterfly wings.
