When it comes to the term “everyday photos”, most people would think of mundane, average pictures.  Wisconsin’s Mike Winkelmann’s creations are anything but.  The “everyday” is how often he releases these amazing images, and you can follow along  everyday right here.  All of this year’s creations were done in Cinema 4D, Octane Renderer, and X-particles.  That being said, seeing all these still makes me wonder “How’d he do that?”  Check the method.

Creating Art With Technology


real-time-projection-mapping-womans-face

Have you ever heard of projection mapping? It looks amazing on large structures, and even more incredible on a moving human face. The following video has a rather bland title (REAL-TIME FACE TRACKING & PROJECTION MAPPING), but I promise you, your mind will be blown. This is an absolutely fantastic use of technology to create beautiful art. This worked so well because the people that designed it managed to achieve very low latency tracking. If the system couldn’t track her face quickly, then the effect would have been greatly diminished. Instead, it looked a little like magic. As Arthur C. Clarke’s Third Law states… Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.

2015 Chevrolet Corvette 8-Speed Automatic First Drive

What do you do when Chevy hands you the keys to a 2015 Corvette Stingray and an open run at the Milford Road Course? You flog it for all you’re worth, whether you know the track or not. Around town, the 8-speed’s many ratios and smooth shifting equate to an easy, comfortable ride, whether in Eco, Tour, or Sport modes. On track, in Track mode (which affects not only the Performance Traction Management system’s settings, but the interoperation of those settings with the transmission’s behavior), even very advanced drivers will find the “D” selector on the transmission as useful and as accurate a method of gear selection as the “M” position and the paddle shifters mounted to the steering wheel. It’s a very smart algorithm that keeps the car in the right gear to deliver maximum acceleration at any time. On the torturous Milford Road Course, an assemblage of the most harrowing turns from the most hardcore tracks in the world, there’s no hiding deficiencies—whether they’re in the driver or the car. Keeping the vehicle in a state of constant upset, there are direction changes, off-camber lunges, blind crests, the Karussell-like “Toilet Bowl,” and more to unsettle the suspension and drivetrain and push any driver to their limit. When you only have a handful of laps to learn the track and the car, you worry less about line and more about listening to what the car is doing. That’s what we did, and we found the 8-speed to be a really welcome companion on track, whether you’re letting the transmission’s brain select the gears or doing it yourself with the paddles. For our own money, we’d still opt for the 7-speed manual, especially with 2015’s improved automatic rev-matching algorithms, but we won’t be looking down our noses at anyone who chooses the 8-speed auto instead. In fact, we might be looking at their tail lights. Thanks to a low 4.56 first gear ratio, the 2015 Stingray’s 8-speed gearbox helps the car get to 60 mph 0.1 second faster than the manual at 3.7 seconds, and run the quarter-mile 0.1 seconds quicker at 11.9 seconds, too. Despite the increased acceleration, the 8-speed also gets better gas mileage than the stick, improving highway economy by 3.5 percent to 29 mpg.

Apartment in Stockholm Encapsulating A Glass-Walled Bedroom

This small apartment in Stockhom, Sweden impressed us with its original layout and stylish decorating scheme. Discovered by Freshome on Svensk Fastighets, the 34 square-meter crib displays comfortable living spaces with a powerful aesthetic appeal. The first interior you are likely to observe upon entering this apartment is the bedroom, creatively separated from the rest of the project through glass walls. Pebbles under the bed, a giant mirror and framed graphics contribute to the Scandinavian personality of this space. A series of accent items such as the coffee table, the candles or the fireplace give the apartment a mixed ambiance, a touch of rusticity and  traditionalism, connecting the crib with the historic character of the building. The living zone, kitchen and dining table are organized in an open layout. And when it comes to Scandinavian apartments, an irresistible terrace is a must. In this case, the small balcony extends living spaces, creating a charming venue for having coffee and breakfast during warm summer mornings.
