…Papervision brings a virtual creature to life?


This “Papervision” creature is quite possibly the most amazing thing I’ve seen in a long time. I kid you not that when I first got it to work, I felt like I was playing around in the future.

To get your own, just visit this page and download and print the required symbol. Then, point your webcam at the symbol and watch the creature spring to life.

It works in real time, so you can move either the camera or the symbol all around and the creature will react accordingly, and it’s even aware of depth, so you can move the symbol close to or away from the camera, and the creature will grow or shrink as if it was a real object.

…Danny Way is made of steel?

After Jake Brown fell last year during the X-Games Big Air Skateboarding event, it seemed like things couldn’t get much worse.

However, Danny Way decided that this year, he too was going to prove that he can take a fall by catching his ankles/shins on the coping, and flipping to flat bottom some twenty feet below.

Keep in mind that the ramp itself is 20+ feet tall, and Danny soars some 20+ feet out of the top of the ramp, so he’s basically falling out of a fifth story window, and then getting hit by a baseball bat on the way down.

And he walked away.



…Apple is an evil genius?

Wired Magazine has a fantastic article about Apple called “How Apple Got Everything Right By Doing Everything Wrong” that dives into the Apple development world and discusses how the company goes against the silicon valley norms, yet manages to churn out amazing products time and time again.

If you’d like to know more about the often mysterious company, it’s a must read, and should be paired with Fortune Magazine’s article, “The Trouble With Steve Jobs” for a full rundown of one of the most talked about companies of the last ten years.

…Suzuki Sidekick jumping looks like fun?

Normally, mixing a Suzuki Sidekick, beer, and a really big jump results in a lot of pain and broken Sidekick parts.

This jump, however, didn’t go according to that plan.

It’s NSFW due to language, so mute the sound and click play, because you don’t want to miss this:
