Look, Chevrolet Built A Life-size The LEGO Batman Movie’s Batmobile

During the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) last month, American automaker surprised visitors with a unlikely ‘concept car’: a life-size LEGO Batmobile straight out of LEGO animated flick The LEGO Batman Movie. Created in collaboration with students from Detroit’s Cody Rouge community, A World in Motion and First LEGO League, this bricksomeful crimefighting vehicle, which stretches 17 feet long (a little shorter than Sawaya’s creation), measures 9.25 feet across and stands 6.92 feet tall (about 5.2 x 2.8 x 2.1 meters), is made up of a whopping 344,187 LEGO bricks and weighs in at a hefty 1,695.5 pounds (769 kg). The tires alone account for 400 pounds (181 kg), each weighing no less than 100 pounds (45 kg!). Continue reading Look, Chevrolet Built A Life-size The LEGO Batman Movie’s Batmobile

Intel Shooting Star Drones Light Up Lady Gaga’s Show At Super Bowl

In yet another prove that lighted drones are here to replace traditional fireworks as the light show of choice, Intel, together with NFL, Pepsi and Lady Gaga, pulled off the first-ever drone integration during a televised event during the Super Bowl event on Sunday, February 5, 2017. The result is as expected: spectacular, made even fantastic by the Lady’s unequivocal stage presence and performance. Mind you, I do not in anyway worship Lady Gaga, but I am not going to lie, as a normal being, I sometimes can’t help but to jive to her tunes.

Backed By Geometric Principles, This Shit Is Literally Golden

Look. We are not here to judge, but I will be honest, saints we are not and therefore, we can’t promised we won’t judge a person with a fetish for “decoration defecation.” Oh, you don’t know if you have such fetish? It’s ok. Just take a look at the 3D printed Archimedean Turd and if you kind of fancy it, then you have a fetish for decoration defecation. Don’t be ashamed, though and don’t make excuses like “because it looks like a perfectly laid pile of poop and it is an art.” Well, I got news for you. This ain’t art. It’s poop science, or more accurately, poop mathematics cos’ its geometry is, apparently, backed by geometric principles including the Archimedean spiral (r = a + bθ) and the Golden Ratio/Phi in triangles where a=1, b=√φ, and c = φ.

Fantastic Beasts Chinese Posters Made Fantastic Beasts Even More Mythical

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is a fantasy movie that’s, well, mystical. Ancient art, particularly, Asian ancient art, is kind of mystical too. So, marrying the two together seems like a logical thing to do and that, folks, was what Chinese artist Zhang Chun did. His series of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Chinese movie posters were designed in classic painting technique known as gongbi art style which dated as far back as the 16th century (Yuan and Ming Dynasty). Like the Pokémon creatures reimagined in ancient Japanese Ukiyo-e we saw last month, Zhang’s iterations seem like, how do you say? Right at home? Yeah, something like that.

Heard Of Construction Site Disco? Well, There Was One And It Was An Art

Disco is mainly an indoor event, but occasionally, it does occur on beaches and sometimes, even at construction site too. Well, ok, the latter was not true. Though it is true that there was a “construction site disco,” but that was just the one time at Lyon, France last week (December 8-10, 2016) and it wasn’t a real disco per se. It was actually French artist Benedetto Bufalino’s latest work of art. The artist, who has the penchant of the quirky art like phone booth aquariums, stuck a large number of mirrored surface plates on the mixing barrel of a Lafarge cement truck which, effectively turn the cement truck into a big-ass disco ball.

These Life-like Images Show You What Pokémon Will Look Like In Real Life

Most things are cute in cartoons. Even hideous creatures in cartoon could look really, really adorable (read: Pokémon). Ok, maybe it was intended to be cute. I don’t know, but what if, just what if, these adorable creatures exist in real-life? Will they be as cute, or otherwise? Well, there’s only one way to find out: genetic splicing. Nah. We are just kidding. How’s that even possible, right? Even if we can (not me, those mad scientists), we do not wish mess with nature and in the process, creating monsters which we can’t contain. As it is, the world already has enough monsters (read: humanity). Anywho, put science aside, concept artist Joshua Dunlop has taken upon himself to reimagine Pokémon to look like real world animals, well, actually, more like creatures.

Some Folks Built A 7-Meter Tall Rice Straw Godzilla And It Looks Amazing!

Well, it is time of the year again in Japan. A time where harvested rice’s by-product, rice straws, are put to good use as material for mind-blowing sculptures and one of them was this 23 feet (7 m) tall, 32 feet (10 m) long Godzilla which reportedly took a group of over 150 volunteers four months to built. Like the rice straw sculptures we saw last year, wooden frames were constructed and rice straws added to form this amazingly realistic Gojira and as if the realism wasn’t enough, LEDs were thrown in for good measures to make the eyes, mouth and part of the tail, chest and neck area glows – just like the monster did in the recent Shin Godzilla flick.

Watch 500 Intel Drones Light Up The Night Sky, Setting A New World Record

Last year, Intel made history by putting 100 light drones into the night sky, dancing to a live orchestra and in the process, set a world record for most UAVs airborne simultaneously. Rather than holding on to the record and waiting for someone else to break it, the chip maker sets out to erase its own record by outdoing itself again but this time, with 500 drones specifically designed for light shows which, together with new algorithms and optimized software, to result in another mind-blowing, breathtaking choreographed light show. Naturally, this amazing feat wiped out the company’s own record, setting a new world record. Continue reading Watch 500 Intel Drones Light Up The Night Sky, Setting A New World Record

“Real-Life” Interpretations Of 6 Y.O. Doodles Seriously Creeps Us Out

Kids drawings are cute and often puts a smile on grown ups’ face but what if the drawings of a six-year-old are turned into “real-life” versions using the magic of Photoshop? Well, that, my friends, was exactly what Dom’s father did. Dom’s dad decided to take his son’s drawings and recreate them into subjects that fit into the real world and the results…. well, lets just say that some of them resulted in me having nightmares after that. Don’t get me wrong. Dom doodles were great for kids of his age, however, the adorable scale just went south, plunges straight into the core of the Earth and into a place called hell because some of these real-life interpretations are so insanely hideous to a point being blasphemous, well, at least for the animals, they are.

Artist Reimagined Pokémon In Ukiyo-e Art And They Look Absolutely Brilliant

We don’t care if the Pokémon fad is in a decline or completely over. Whether a fad or not, you can’t deny that these Pokémon arts interpreted through feudal Japanese art of Ukiyo-e are simply brilliant and fitting because Pokémon is essentially Japanese. Created by Chicago-based artist BG Judkins, the Ukiyo-e Style Pokémon which Judkins called Pokiyo-e series, started just this year (though not sure when exactly in 2016) as a daily ritual of sort and has since covered 203 Pokémon creatures, including pre-evolution and post-evolution forms, each faithfully cataloged on BD Judkins’ website by their Pokédex number “for easy reference,” said BD Judkins.
