You’ve touched us all, and will forever be in our hearts.
4th March 2009 – 28th April 2012

The face i see everytime i close my eyes

Exactly 3 years and 1 day…… dats the time we’ve had with each other. You came to our home as a lil curled up furrball, the date was 27th April 2009. It was a week where i had just stopped working at my dayjob which worked in my favour since i could take care of you day and night. Where i can be there to ease your anxiety of being in a new location, experiencing new smells, new sights and of course…. to settle into your new home. (more…)

Category : Photography, Videos

Alright, long story short i received a msg via whatsapp asking if i was interested to help out do a Pin-up shoot. Without any hesitation, i said hell yeah! After a few calls and messages, i roughly have an idea of what to expect and what is needed of me for this shoot. I gathered the team from latenightproject and got cracking (more…)


Time-lapse video of Earth captured aboard the International Space Station

Category : Videos


 

Most of the time-lapse videos we feature on the site have been taken by a camera setup on the Earth’s surface somewhere. Today, however, we’ve got a time-lapse from space, more specifically, it was captured from on board the International Space Station while looking down at the surface of the Earth rushing by below.

The video below starts when the ISS is over the Pacific Ocean. It then travels over North, then South America before reaching Antarctica. The actual list of areas and events travelled over is given below in the order they appear in the video. The lightning storm is especially nice and lucky to get on film from above.

  • Vancouver Island
  • Victoria
  • Vancouver
  • Seattle
  • Portland
  • San Fransisco
  • Los Angeles
  • Phoenix
  • Texas
  • New Mexico
  • Mexico
  • Mexico City
  • Gulf of Mexico
  • Yucatan Peninsula
  • Lightning in the Pacific Ocean
  • Guatemala
  • Panama
  • Columbia
  • Ecuador
  • Peru
  • Chile
  • Amazon

What’s striking is not only the speed at which the Earth is passing below the ISS, but the brightness of the light coming from the major areas of population. It’s a reminder of how much we as humans dominate the Earth and how much we have changed the way it looks.

I recommending watching the video in 1080p and full screen to get the full effect. I also hope we get a lot more footage like this both from the ISS and satellites that are currently travelling through our solar system. It really brings home how beautiful our planet is.

Grocery shopping in subway stations

Category : Design, Videos

Imagine waiting for the train while picking out your groceries from a display case filled with products identical in size, scale and color to really grocery store shelves. If the first round of the digital revolution was about making the real virtual, this time it is about making the virtual real again. Video at end of post

Video Game in a Box – Teague Labs

Category : Videos

This little side-scrolling game looks like a lot of fun to play, especially if you stumble upon it lying on a table with an inviting “pull me” label. It looks like playing a normal Mario game but in a horrible nightmare featuring a controller so sticky you can’t stop running to the right.

For the non-coding designer – Adobe Muse

Category : Design, Videos

Adobe Muse, now in beta, is a tool traditional designers can use to create HTML websites without having to deal with code.

Briefly, if you spend more time in InDesign and Photoshop than you do on the Internet, Muse (the code name for Adobe’s soon-to-be-officially-launched new product) might be a godsend for you. And if you feel marginally more competent in the aforementioned tools than in a code editor, Muse is still something you’ll want to check out.

Mansour Bahrami – Tennis’ Greatest Entertainer

Category : Videos

Mansour Bahrami is a professional tennis player from Iran. During his early 20′s, the coming of the Islamic Revolution in Iran meant the outlawing of tennis. But when he was finally allowed to play by escaping to France, he proved to be quite the entertaining player.

His specialty shots include the power shot through the legs, the lob through the legs and the drop shot which bounces back over the net due to excessive backspin. His sense of humour shines through all of his matches and the crowd is never sure of his next move, be it serving while holding six balls (although he is known to hold 21), an under arm serve, catching the ball in his pocket, deliberately missing a smash or playing an imaginary, slow-motion point.

River Rock Balancing

Category : Videos

I have to admit, I have never heard of a river rock balancer, but this guy has got some mad skills.

Looking like they were cemented together or placed as permanent fixtures, Mike Grab braves the freezing water on Boulder Creek to painstakingly place each rock one by one, balancing them to remain free standing. If you don’t beleive me, watch the video.
