‘Flutter in Pinhole’ Instant Camera

A clever concept camera that combines retro instant pictures with even more retro pinhole photography. Each camera comes pre-loaded with two sheets of Fuji Film instant film (probably Instax mini ) and easy to follow pictograms on the back. You pop open the camera, open the shutter flap to make the exposure, and then collapse the camera again. The pencil that’s included is then rubbed along the back in one direction to burst the developing paste on the film. Cut in half and you have two photos, one for you and one to send as a post card to a friend. Very clever! I now have a reason to get a pack of that film and mess around with it.

HDR Video: The Next Overused Effect?

Shoot the same scene through a beam splitter on two Canon 5D MKII digital cameras. Under expose one camera by two stops, over expose the other by the same. Mix in post with some custom software that compresses the brights and shadows and you have what will probably become the next over used video effect, once the hardware gets sorted out… Read the rest of this entry »

The Classic Macintosh iPad Stand

A classic Mac used to house iPad

A clever hack that combines a Mac Classic with a brand spanking new Apple iPad. No, the Mac Classic no longer works after this hack but you have to admit that it’s better than leaving to molder on a closet shelf somewhere.

24 Hours Trapped Inside Starbucks

StarbucksA writer spends 24 consecutive hours in a Houston Texas Starbucks and lives to tell about it:

“15 hours, 11 restroom visits, and 16 drinks in. 3:06 PM May 14th via Twitterrific”

At this point, it really felt like I was seeing things. The drinks weren’t the worst part, it was mostly the restroom. My bladder began to hurt. Later, it would go numb.

Space Slug Oven Mitt

Just the thing for your next BBQ, an oven mitt that that is styled after the space slug that tried to eat the Millenium Falcon in “The Empire Strikes Back“. A bit of trivia, the Millennium Falcon’s design was inspired by a hamburger.
