Aeromobil Flying Car

The Aeromobil 2.5 is the latest attempt at the car/plane hybrid. Created by Stefan Klein, a designer from Slovakia, the Areomobile has a major advantage over other flying cars such as the Terrafugia. That being it looks so freaking cool. With this prototype demonstrating it's potential with the short flight shown in the video below, Klein hopes to find investors willing to help make his dream a reality.

Ron Mueck: Larger (And Smaller) Than Life Sculptures

London based sculptor Ron Mueck creates works which are both real and impossible. The incredible detail would probably cause one to momentarily guess whether they were looking at a sculpture or a real person if it weren't for the fact that most (if not all) of his work is out of scale. Beyond that I suppose it is up to the viewer to give each piece additional meaning as the artist doesn't provide obvious explanations. To me, when you look at his work collectively, there is an overarching cycle of life theme. We're born, we grow, live, think and feel. We grow old, contemplate, reflect and die...

Carrie remake promotional gag

A very well done promotional stunt for the new Carrie remake due out sometime this month. I thought the effect of the tables moving all at once was awesome. Unfortunately I'm guessing the movie won't be as good.

Created by Bot & Dolly, Box is a truly astonishing combination of projection mapping, robotics and artistic vision. Certainly the next stage in the use of projection mapping.
