“Since 2016, Tiger Beer has worked in collaboration with India-based technology company, Graviky Labs, on a revolutionary product — Air-Ink™. Company founder Anirudh Sharma and his team have developed a method of transforming vehicle emissions into ink with filters that collect carbon soot from exhausts. If widely adopted across the UK’s fleet of taxis, the tech has the potential to remove trillions of tons of CO2 from the atmosphere. Since its development in 2016, Graviky Labs has harvested over 770 liters of ink — the equivalent of a diesel car being driven non-stop for nearly two and a half years. Now, using the collected ink, Tiger Beer is helping to return the carbon to the streets in the form of art….” via…HYPEBEAST

“nude dancers are censored by carefully programed drones in japanese ad campaign
gif by designboom / courtesy of BUYMA to promote their latest stock of clothing, online japanese retailer BUYMA has realized a commercial campaign that cleverly integrates technology, design and dance. the scene stars two completely naked dancers that perform a routine alongside tchaikovsky’s ‘swan lake suite’, whilst a fleet of carefully programed drones perfectly move in tandem — censoring their most intimate body parts. humorously, the drones, each clutching a small sheet of white paper, cover and conceal the dancers’ not-suitable-for-work areas as they leap and launch their bodies around the stage. what starts out with two dancers quickly progresses into a highly orchestrated scene, with multiple drones joining in to help hide bouncing breasts and flailing phallic parts. finally, the closing slide of the short feature displays the phrase ‘buy clothes’. ”

“The ‘Time-Slice’ camera was first devised in 1980 by Tim Macmillan at Bath Academy of Art during his BA. Fine Arts degree course. Originally a painter, Macmillan was interested in combining Cubist theory with contemporary technology. Initially using hand-made photographic emulsions and photo grams, he went on to create a series of cameras creating multiple viewpoints of a space which were then collaged together. The multiple camera concept then made a lateral leap to being applied to cine film. The first camera involved a length of 16mm film negative, clear Perspex spacers providing a focal length and a strip of opaque 16mm cine magnetic tape with a pinhole drilled into each frame. A simple shutter over the magnetic tape then provided the means of exposure. The result was a tracking shot through a space. The profound revelation was that while the viewer experienced a move through space, time was frozen. A paradox! The effect is also known as ‘temps mort’ (dead time) & ‘virtual camera’, with various companies advertising under names such as ‘Timetrack’, ‘Multicam’ & ‘Big Freeze’.”
“In his time, Mark Twain was considered the funniest man on earth. Yet he was also an unflinching critic of human nature, using his humor to attack hypocrisy, greed and racism.
