This Nikon Camera Case Captures What Dogs Are Excited About. Is Anyone Surprised?

We usually take picture of things we’re excited about, but what if a dog could do the same thing? Nikon recently created their ‘Heartography’ project to see what gets dogs excited, using a happy dog named Grizzler as the product tester for their special camera mount with a built-in heart-rate monitor. Whenever he saw something that made his heart beat rise, he snapped a picture. Is anyone really surprised by what Grizzler took pictures of?

A Gigantic 3D-Printed Zoetrope Based on Ruben’s Gruesome Painting, ‘Massacre of the Innocents’

British artist Mat Collishaw (previously) has built a huge 3D-printed zeotrope called All Things Fall. The highly detailed circular sculpture is populated by 350 different figures, environmental elements and architectural pieces which animate when the carousel is spun in front of a synchronised strobe light. In motion, a shockingly grisly scene is revealed.

Jim Bachor Fills the World’s Potholes with Very Sweet Mosaics

We’ve seen attention brought to potholes by filing them with surprises like an ice bucket of beer or a wild Barbie pool party – but what about actually fixing the problem? Chicago artist Jim Bachor has been doing that in a highly unusual and clever way, filling the tire-popping road craters with beautiful and surprising mosaics made from glass and marble. See? Create art, save the world (or at least a few tires).

This is Real Food, Sliced into Perfect Cubes

We’ve seen plenty of projects that squeeze objects into a cubic form, but almost all of those are digital. Conceptual design studio Lernert & Sander on the other hand, created their cubes in real-life.

Wonderfully Illustrative Fine-Line Tattoos by Istanbul’s Bicem Sinik

Istanbul-based tattoo artist Bicen Sinik has an impressive talent for creating intricate, fine-line illustrations on skin. Like the Los Angeles-based Dr. Woo (who we featured just last week), she has a knack for creating high-contrast linear and stippled pieces with a minimal amount of shading.

The World’s First Throw-and-Shoot Video Camera is All I Ever Wanted

Meet Lily, the world’s first throw-and-shoot camera. This highly innovative drone is a new way we take video and stills of our activities.

This device is going to change the way we take selfies, and by that, I mean they’ll actually be good.

This Picasso Just Became the Most Expensive Painting Ever Sold

The most expensive painting in the world is no longer Francis Bacon’s Three Studies of Lucian Freud, which Christie’s sold for $142.4 million in 2013. An anonymous buyer has just paid an astounding $179.36 million for Pablo Picasso’s 1955 painting Les femmes d’Alger (Version “O”), putting it in top position in the world of very expensive artworks. The painting last sold in 1997 for a paltry $31.9 million.

Wes Anderson Designed a Bar. It’s Just as Quirky as You’d Imagine.

If you’ve dreamed of walking into the quirky, retro set of a Wes Anderson film, you’re far from alone. But unless you were film crew, that’s been impossible until now.

The lauded director recently designed the eccentric Bar Luce for Fondazione Prada, a new art and culture complex by Prada. Now you can walk into a space that looks right out of a Wes Anderson film, and even get a drink there.

Sometimes dreams do come true.

You’ve Seen Body Painting Before. But Has It Moved?

The distinctive chameleon is known for its ability to change colors, but the lizard featured here is even more changeable than that – this one can become human.

Bodypainting legend Johannes Stötter (previously) has created an incredible moving illusion, using two dextrous models laying atop each other to create the form of a chameleon. Then, in coordinated movements, they slowly walk along a branch – or so it seems.
