DIY Daft Punk Helmet in just 17 months...

This is beyond impressive, this is completely geektastic. The dedication and obsession that went into this is phenomenal. It only took Volpin Props a full 17 months of blood, sweat and tears to create this amazing Daft Punk helmet. Complete with colorful lighting and shiny gold exterior. Check out the process in the video, appropriately made with a Daft Punk soundtrack. More images at Volpin Props website and flickr...

Clark Little’s Breaking Waves

I came across these images when having a browse through the Guardian website. It was a nice sight for bleak morning eyes. Clark little is a hawaii based surf photographer. Being a long time surfer, Clark Little gained recognition for his photography with appearances on Good Morning America, Inside edition and many other local shows in the US. Apparently it all started in 007 when Clark’s wife wanted a nice piece of art to decorate a wall. Voluntarily, Clark grabbed a camera, jumped in the water, and starting snapping away capturing the beauty and power of monstrous Hawaiian waves from the inside out. “Clark’s view” is a unique view of the ocean that most will only be able...

“The Places We Live” – Online Exhibition...

The Places We Live features panoramic photos of slums by Jonas Bendiksen, and narrated by the people who live there (albeit through translators). It’s very moving, educational and thought provoking And most of all, it is brilliantly executed. Like, it’s really really well done. It’s good to know that people actually use, often misguided, web design skills to make things that are artistic, culturally significant and powerful. To access the stories in the restricting Flash interface, skip the intro, click on a city, and then on one of the households in the upper left corner. There was apparently an exhibition and a book too. via Boing...

Poladroid

Much has been made of the death of the Polaroid, you’ve all probably read thousands of articles on it and went out and stockpiled catridges like they were tins of beans in the days leading up to the Y2k crisis. News of the shutting down of production was taken badly by design mavens worldwide. Wailing blog posts likened the decision to a dagger thrust into the heart of kitsch lovers worldwide, it was an apocalypse on par with a decision to stop global cute puppy production. Auschwitz had nothing on this man-made disaster. Believe. Humanity has never been subjected to such a nefarious example of corporate malevolence and short-sightedness. Thankfully, a hero has emerged. Technology and a geek...

Amazing photos of North Korea

Tristan linked us to these spectacular photos taken in North Korea and published on the Boston Globe website. These photos were all taken within the past six months – some taken from the borders, peering in, others provided by North Korea itself, and several generously shared by freelance photographer Eric Lafforgue, who recently spent some time inside the country. North Korea celebrates its 60th birthday this year – the last Stalinist state in the world. In such a closed off country we rarely get to see glimpses of what life is like inside its borders. I’ve always been somewhat fixated with the place – it’s such a different place from the rest of the world – and so...
