Welcome to the world of "light painting." It begins in darkness, and then over the course of an hour or hours, a photographer illuminates small portions of his or her subject, and combines the images in post to create this.
This is certainly the weekend for monster Lego builds. First there was the Battlestar Galactica behemoth early Saturday, and now this afternoon (by way of last Wednesday) we have this 30,000-brick Imperial hanger from The Return of the Jedi.
Known previously as the mysterious Nokia "Sea Ray," this leaked bit of mobile kit from Orange France is now apparently known as the Sun. The leak includes specs. Oh, the specs!
Who has tim to actually visit places anymore? Not me. Too much stuff to do that doesn't involve curiosity or exercise. That's why these Google Maps "Worldwide Carpets" area rugs are so perfect.
Infomercials, Start Your Copywriting! "Text Neck" is apparently a thing now, and anyone with a smartphone and a sore neck will be ripe for the picking this holiday season!
After flying his fuel-strapped plane mere inches above the Pacific Ocean for an hour and a half, this pilot finally ditched his plane in the ocean without incident, emerged without injury, and was immediately rescued by the Coast Guard. Easy!
I was about to call this Ideo electric commuter bike the best, well, something, but that's just not the case. It won an important competition in Oregon, the Manifest bike building competition, and that's where the accolades stop.

9to5Mac's discovered what appears to be a nice new AppleTV hiding in the file system of the upcoming iOS 5 file system code.
The Mouriz School is too cool for school. By day, its students frolcik and play outside its random lines and dark wood veneer. By night, however, the entire scene becomes one from a Pixar short. Fascinating stuff.
Commissioned by the fine chaps at Moore & Giles Leather, this "Great American Woody" is a traveling bar on wheels. It was built by the master craftsman Brad Ford, and proceeds from its journey of publicity go toward DIFFA.
Hey, did you hear the one about the two women fighting in a Wal-Mart? It's a real gas! No, really, that's not a punchline. Two women threw ammonia and bleach at one another and created poisonous gas in a Wall-Mart:
Before you go tossing that coffee cup or plastic spoon into the garbage or even the recycling bin, why don't you send it along to artist Christian DuCharme? The man's made a name for himself making lights from discarded utensils.

I very much doubt Steve Jobs would have approved of a movie about his life, beyond what's been produced already, but in this case it doesn't really matter anymore, does it?
