DJI, a company specializing in the development of flight control technology, has introduced their latest photography drone, the ‘Spreading Wings S900′.  Like most of their remote-controlled helicopters, the automated device features advanced autopilot technology coupled with a unique gimbal stabilization system, delivering video footage and images of comparable quality to those shot on manned helicopters.  The device has a lightweight, highly portable frame; the arms and landing gear are made of carbon fiber, which increases stability and strength without sacrificing performance.  The portable drone is designed with arms that fold in order to save space, a redesigned and rebuilt power distribution system with gold-plated metal bearings that secure the power cords during flight, and a removable upper center board, meaning set-up time just takes a few minutes.  Combined with 4114 pro motors and 1552 folding propellers, the S900 has a maximum thrust of 2.5 kilograms.

 

 

Retractable landing gear and a special low gimbal mounting bracket give users a wide range of possible shooting angles and camera motions.  The latest motor adopts a single wire stator design, offering improved heat dissipation and better performance.  Each arm is designed with an 8° inversion and a 3° inclination, making the aircraft more stable when rolling and pitching, yet more flexible when rotating.  As the gimbal bracket is separated from the main frame by specially designed dampers, it significantly reduces high-frequency vibrations, resulting in a clearer and sharper shot.  The specs are readily available online for anyone looking to purchase.

The concept of watching people create pottery may not be the most exciting way to spend a Friday night, however the American Museum of Ceramic Art released a video recently that visits Icheon, South Korea, to watch specialists as they make excellent Korean pottery using conventional strategies. The process is oddly majestic, and entrancing to watch.  Icheon has a history of fired society that compasses a large number of years, and it proceeds right up ’til today.  Check the method.

Geometric Dichroic Glass Installations by Chris Wood


glass-8

Artist Chris Wood works with colored glass to create colorful, prism-like mazes and mandalas of light installed vertically on walls. Her most common material is dichroic (meaning ‘two color’) glass, a material invented by NASA in the 1950s that has a special optical coating meant to reflect certain wave lengths of light while letting others through. At some angles the glass appears completely reflective, somewhat like a mirror of gold.

Höweler + Yoon’s Swing Time Illuminates Boston Park

‘Swing time’ by höweler + yoon architecture is an interactive playscape composed of 20 illuminated ring-shaped swings. Designed in three different sizes, the welded polypropylene swings enable users to engage, exercise and play as individuals or in groups. The installation activates the temporary urban park and creates a community area between the Boston convention, exhibition center and D street. LED lighting within the swings are regulated by custom micro-controllers that signal their activity levels. This happens thanks to the internal accelerometer that measures the forces of the swing. This means when they are static, they emit a soft, white light and a switching one from white to purple when in motion. These responsive play elements invite users to interact with each other and create more of a community at the Boston park.

Timur Lysenko’s Tattoos


timur-lysenko-07

There is darkness and beauty in Timur Lysenko’s tattoos. His Polish-based tattooer uses gradient shading to create 3D wow-factor portraits and flowers, and then mixes into the compositions flat lines and sweater-style patterns for a contrasting effect. There is a lot of black pigment, and some bright pink or red. The aesthetic and themes are like flashbacks of horror movies; bits of Edward Scissorhands and Beauty and the Beast, as well as Punk Rock music and album covers.
