Here are our Staff Picks for this week.   


Descriptive Camera   The descriptive camera is a project created by Matt Richardson. When a photo is taken, the image is sent via the internet to someone on Amazon’s Mechanical Turk, where a person then describes the image in words. The text description is sent back to the camera, where it is then printed on a thermal receipt printer. - Alex


Cows & Cows & Cows   Ever wondered what a giant spider made of cows would look like? Check out this goofy animation called “Cows & cows & cows”. - Alex


Sunbeam Tiger   An Electric Car Concept. - Brandon


How a Carbon Fiber Cello is Made   A great “How It’s Made” detailing composite cello construction. Keep an eye out for their open cavity and two piece molds. Well made! - Seth


UPCYCLE SHUTTERS – 10 IDEAS   How to reuse Shutters artistically - Brandon

Here are our Staff’s prime picks for this week.   These range from intelligent prosthetics to not being able to believe what you see.   Please enjoy.   



iWalk   Cutting edge prosthetic leg company founded by double amputee and MIT professor, Dr. Hugh Herr, who lost both legs to frostbite in a mountaineering accident. Still an active climber, Dr Herr related how with certain customized limbs, he has been able to climb better than a 100% natural human. - Evan



Zen and the Art of Making   This is a great newsletter post from MAKE: Magazine about the journey from beginner to expert maker. - Gregg



Pantorouter   This is about 3D Routing the hard way, without CNC. - Carter



Rendering Synthetic Objects into Legacy Photographs on Vimeo   Cool video showing a software interface which allows for 3D objects to be inserted into 2D pictures with realistic lighting and other effects.   “A method to realistically insert synthetic objects into existing photographs without requiring access to the scene or any additional scene measurements.”   There is also an interview with Kevin Karsch, who is the guy responsible for it. - Alex
