…Field Notes can change colors?

Field Notes

Field Notes are memo books “worth fillin’ up with good information”.

One way to order them is through a yearly subscription, which includes a new color every three months, and to celebrate the first year of Field Notes COLORS, Coudal Partners put together a pretty cool stop motion video that shows one year of Field Notes memo books transitioning through the seasons:

…It’s TGI Friday: Tag: The Power of Paint?

Tag: The Power of Paint

Tag: The Power of Paint is an innovative first-person puzzle platformer that requires you to paint the world around you with special paints as you work your way towards the goal.

Each color of paint gives you a different ability, with green launching you off the surface, red giving you a speed boost, and blue allowing you to stick to the surface, and you can combine them for even more powers.

Recently, Tag was awarded the Best Student Game and Student Showcase awards at the Independent Games Festival, and best of all, it’s free, so you have no excuse for not checking it out.

…Delta is giving their planes new colors?

Delta 747-400

When Delta Air Lines bought Northwest Airlines for $2.6 billion, it acquired 436 planes, including Airbus A330s, DC-9s, and 16 Boeing 747-400s, making it one of the only domestic airlines to fly the jumbo jet.

The only problem: All of them were painted in NWA colors. (Or livery as they call it in the airline industry.)

To fix that problem, Delta will spend more than two years painting more than 40,000 gallons of paint on their new birds, but it’s hard to picture what a 12 day paint job looks like on a plane the size of a football field, so Delta has put together a time-lapse video of the whole process that cuts it down to just three minutes:

What interesting is that at time-lapse speed, the painters on cherry pickers look like the arms of a robot, and the whole process becomes a well choreographed dance that makes it look easy.

…Robin Soulier is a puddle photographer?

Robin Soulier

Robin Soulier has an interesting way of looking at a city that could definitely provide some inspiration for the next time you’re out taking pictures and want something a little different: He photographs buildings form their reflections in puddle water.

The end result is a mixture of texture, light and color that adds a whole new dimension to the typical building photograph, and turns the otherwise ordinary into the extraordinary.
