Disney World Wristbands


A $1 billion project by Disney.

"A family of four can put MagicBands on after registering for the cloud-based service, then instead of digging through cash or (the unmaxed) credit cards, they can use their wrists to enter the park, buy lunch, and even unlock their hotel room. A skeptic would point out that such an interaction will disassociate people with spending money, and that's entirely true: Families will be able to enjoy Disney without the constant reminder that the magic comes at a price."

Typical Mac User


"When you think of a typical Mac user, you may imagine a young Silicon Valley go-getter type with hipster glasses and a tongue-tying Starbucks order involving half-caff, soy milk, and foam. According to an unscientific composite created by app maker BlueStacks, you'd be way off base."


Man Walks All Day To Create Snow Patterns


"Artist Simon Beck must really love the cold weather! Along the frozen lakes of Savoie, France, he spends days plodding through the snow in raquettes (snowshoes), creating these sensational patterns of snow art. Working for 5-9 hours a day, each final piece is typically the size of three soccer fields! The geometric forms range in mathematical patterns and shapes that create stunning, sometimes 3D, designs when viewed from higher levels."


American Census Dotmap


"This is a map of every person counted by the 2010 US, 2011 Canadian, and 2010 Mexican censuses. The map has 454,064,098 dots - one for each person."


Stand Up With No Hands To Live Longer!


"If getting up from a game of Scrabble on the floor this Christmas requires both hands, a lot of sighing and a helpful tug from a grandchild, beware.

For the gloomy message from scientists is that you may not live as long as your flexible counterparts.

Those who can sit down and get up using only one hand - or no hands at all - are likely to live for longer, a study found."

Upside Down Reflections


"There's something incredibly fascinating about viewing the world through upside down reflections, taken through puddles on the street. it's like we're seeing the world with a new set of eyes, a perspective most of us are not really used to. It may take a second or two for your eyes to get adjusted to what's really going on."


Things We Should Forget About 2012


A little belated, this post and we'll probably be berating 2013 as being a crappy year as well soon..


the real-life Popeye..

"German photographer Michael Wesely has spent decades working on techniques for extremely long camera exposures -- usually between two to three years. In the mid-1990s, he began using the technique to document urban development over time, capturing years of building projects in single frames."


The Museum of Modern Art, New York

"A list of actors and actresses whose success can only be explained by the notion that they must have sold their souls to the devil. There's no way they would have been successful otherwise."
