jelly robot, pentagons new secret weapon


This is pretty crazy. The Chembot, a blob of goo that moves by changing its shape. Through inflating and deflating different areas, it has the ability to navigate over and through challenging terrain, ie squeezing through tiny holes, and shit, I thought nano particles was crazy this is the real life blob. Pretty freaky


editors introduce a new way to preview an album


Editors decided to step it up using Google Street View for their new album In This Light And On This Evening, produced by Mark Flood Ellis (U2, Sigur Ros, Depeche Mode). Basically, you browse the street view and the maps to listen to the tracks. I have to say this is a really great approach to making it interesting and fun. I have had the album for a couple of weeks now and it’s in heavy rotation. In This Light And On This Evening takes you back in time, as it leaps forward.

Karman Vortices


Check out But does it Float, a site with a collection of amazing overhead shots of natural and unnatural events. From devastated forest to waterways, definitely worth the look. Here’s the lowdown on this photo….

“Each of these swirling clouds is a result of a meteorological phenomenon known as a Karman vortex. These vortices appeared over Alexander Selkirk Island in the southern Pacific Ocean. Rising precipitously from the surrounding waters, the island’s highest point is nearly a mile (1.6 km) above sea level. As wind-driven clouds encounter this obstacle, they flow around it to form these large, spinning eddies.”
