Watch a 3D Printer Play a Mean Imperial March Cover

by Andrew Liszewski

YouTube is full of videos of defunct and outdated computer hardware that's been hacked and turned into musical instruments. Everything from disk drives to dot-matrix printers has been given a symphonic second life, and despite being a relatively new technology, even 3D printers have now been taught to play Star Wars' Imperial March.

Parallel Worlds By Michal Karcz

by Michal Karcz "Karezoid"

Please join me in my never ending voyage through my world. This land is constantly expanding. My world is what’s inside me, what really defines who I am. Here’s the key…

I was born in 1977 in Warsaw, Poland and I graduated from High School of Art in Warsaw. My passion for photography began in early childhood. My father had a camera and when I was just a child I liked to look at the world through the lens, crop it, select the best shots. I always had ideas of mixing photography with paintings. My serious journey into my own world of photography and photo manipulation began in 2004 when I opened “the door” with a different key.

I combined painting and photography into one piece using digital tools. That digital photography and software gave me the opportunity to generate unique realities that were impossible to be created with an ordinary dark room techniques. Most of my work is like a journey to the places which don’t exist. Places from my dreams, desire, imagination and fears. This is my escape from reality which is not enough for me.

My inspiration comes from many artists and it doesn’t matter if they get through to me by the sense of vision or hearing. I can tell that music has the biggest impact on my work. Music creates sound illustrations to the pictures I carry in my mind. These two things hit me with the strongest intensity.

These Incredible Illustrations Were Made Entirely On Typewriters

These Incredible Illustrations Were Made Entirely On Typewriters

Long before ASCII appeared on the scene, artists started using typewriters to create inky landscapes, portraits, and other works of art. From 19th-century typographic illustrations to more modern works of graphic art, here is what typewriters are capable of producing beyond the written word.

Stunning Portraits By Bernard Pras Can Only Be Seen From The Right Angle

by Audra

French artist Bernard Pras is widely known for his unbelievable found-object installations. In anamorphic artworks like these, he hides his images in piles of what seems to be plain junk. They can only be seen through a particular device or just from a right angle.

In order to create the anamorphic effect, the artist carefully plans the whole installation and places seemingly random objects, selecting them by color and size so that they would resemble a famous portrait or image from a single perspective. Pras uses plastic waste, old pills, boxes, bags, packs, dolls, toys, musical instruments, household objects, and pretty much anything that seems right for the color and texture he needs. The results are simply jaw-dropping!

Movie filmed to look like a first person shooter game looks incredible

Movie filmed to look like a first person shooter game looks incredible

Here's an action scene from a movie called Hardcore that's filmed completely from one character's point of view so it looks exactly like a first person shooter video game. In fact, it's so good, it's as if those FPS video games like Call of Duty all of a sudden came to life. Watch it.

I Traveled 40,000km Around Australia And Brough Back These Stunning Photos

by Johan Lolos

My name’s Johan Lolos and I traveled around Australia for a year after I left Belgium to start a trip around the world. With more than 40,000km done by car, hitchhiking, plane, boat, train, bus, I visited every state and territory and saw some stunning scenery.

During my year with the kangaroos, I was a witness of sea turtles laying their eggs in the Northern Territory, I swam with whale-sharks and wild dolphins in Western Australia, experienced a shark cage diving and played with wild sea lions in South Australia, did a 3 days/3 nights sailing cruise in the Whitsundays, got my PADI diving licence in Cairns, flew over the Great Barrier Reef and saw so many breathtaking views. Australia definitely is an amazing country, that’s why I wanted to share with you some of my best shots.

Now I’ve just arrived in New Zealand for a year and hopefully I’ll keep inspiring people and help them discover fantastic places.
