If you’re looking to stream the latest Harry Potter or Transformers movie tonight, Netflix is not the way to go. Tristan Louis was recently wondering where the latest hit movies where available to watch instantly… and his resulting research shows that Netflix is seriously lagging behind it’s competition – Amazon, iTunes and Vudu.

Nando Costa is burning his way toward the perfect Kickstarter. He’s making a unique animation using a laser engraver to precisely cut each frame of a film on a piece of wood.

Ok artists, here’s a clever idea if we’ve ever seen one. A cute couple go out on a snowy winter art walk, observing randomly placed street art around the city. But this is a secret art walk with each piece symbolizing a season of the couples relationship and lovingly created by local artists for the sole purpose of popping the question. It’s heart warming, artistic and clever. See more pictures of the works at flickr.com.
You know how everything seems to look better in slow motion? Well, it turns out that clouds look amazingly good going really, really fast. These giant floating masses of water often appear to stand still, but give them a little kick of speed and all their undulating movements and diverging layers become apparent.
