Every Star Wars movie blended together: 1 video, 288 still frames

Every Star Wars movie blended together: 1 video, 288 still frames

Today we've been introduced to the Star Wars Wars experience - all six of the films released thus far, all mixed together. Mashed together - blended together to make one single movie. It's a work of art. It's unwatchable when the audio is turned on, but alone and apart, it's just beautiful. And lucky you, the creator of this masterpiece has also created a gallery of 288 frames taken apart, available for your perusal. And use as wallpapers. To do with whatever you do so please.

Periscope live tour held by The British Museum

Periscope live tour held by The British Museum

Periscope is a livestreaming service, and it can be used for more than piracy and vlogs. Case in point: the British Museum gave a live broadcast of an exhibit earlier today using Periscope, and we can only hope it'll be doing more of them in the future. This makes it easier than ever to tune into live events from iOS or Android (which is now supported) devices, the same device users can use to broadcast their own events. In the case of The British Museum, Periscope was used to offer an exclusive live guided tour for people scattered around the world.

PomPom Mirror reflects your furry side

PomPom Mirror reflects your furry side

Sometimes it feels as if there is nothing new under the sun, and then something like the PomPom Mirror happens. This is a mirror made of cream-colored and black handfuls of fur, and it uses the contrasting colors to reflect the people and objects that stand before it (in silhouette form, that is). It’s perhaps the most bizarre mirror you’ll ever interact with, though as an art piece the mirror is peaceful and interesting, and incredibly unique.

Star Wars’ BB-8 droid if it were designed by Apple

Star Wars’ BB-8 droid if it were designed by Apple

Hey Apple fans, wouldn't it be awesome if just about everything was designed Jony Ive and his team at the Cupertino company? Stuff like vacuum cleaners, kitchen appliances, and even toilet seats would sleek, aluminum-covered products of precision and beauty. Okay, maybe that wouldn't be so great. But there are definitely some things we can agree would be pretty cool looking if they came Apple. Take BB-8, that cute new spherical droid from Star Wars: The Force Awakens, for example.

World’s first drone graffiti… isn’t that great

So you want to get a drone and make it spray a fantastic mural on your local public wall, yes? That's what KATSU did this week, right on Kendall Jenner's face. It was about this time last year that this same graffiti artist demonstrated his newfound love of drones for their ability to deploy spray paint whilst flying. Apparently it took him a whole year to actually find the place at which fate and a lack of local authority readiness were aligned.

Artist hacks together Game Boy and camera into 8-bit printer

Artist hacks together Game Boy and camera into 8-bit printer

Nintendo has a history of releasing obscure, rarely used peripherals for its video game consoles and portables. In this instance, I'm talking specifically about the Game Boy Camera and Game Boy Printer, two accessories for Nintendo's original 8-bit handheld that, well, let you take small, lo-fi pictures and print them with the same quality as a cash register receipt. Well, a Russian artist must've used these as inspiration, because he's hacked together what basically amounts to be a Game Boy-photo-gun-printer.

Melchior mechanical time keeping robot is a table clock

I love the intricate pieces and workmanship that go into mechanical watches that don’t need batteries. It's very intriguing to think that someone somewhere designed all these gears and springs to make a watch keep accurate time without resorting to electrics. A mechanical watchmaker called MB&F has unveiled one of its tenth anniversary timepieces and it's not a wristwatch.
