Flickr introduces public domain option: SpaceX gets on board

Flickr, the Yahoo-owned photography storage and sharing website, has been slowly adding features it hopes will make it appeal to a larger audience of photographers, and latest among its efforts is the introduction of two new copyright designations: Public Domain and Creative Commons 0 (CC0). Both designations have been long-requested by Flickr users, and it has already kicked things off in a big way, announcing that SpaceX was one of the first accounts to switch over to a "Public Domain" designation -- making those gorgeous rocket shots available to anyone.

GoPro camera patent a dead ringer for the Polaroid Cube

Wait a second, those of you familiar with the Polaroid Cube might be saying, isn't that the miniature shooter we know so well? Not really, says GoPro, this is a new camera with new abilities - it just... maybe looks... similar.

But similar enough that we're going to give a long hard look and play with this device if and when it's released to the mass market.

Facebook’s ‘Scrapbook’ lets parents tag kid pics

Facebook’s ‘Scrapbook’ lets parents tag kid pics

If a child is under 13, they aren’t allowed an official place on Facebook. That’s meant to protect them from less than savory characters, but can prove difficult for parents who want to upload pics and tag their kids. A Facebook study showed up to 65% of parents simply tag their partners when uploading a pic of their child, which in turn allows a wider audience of friends to view the pics. With that in mind, Facebook created ‘Scrapbook’, which allows parents to track photos of kids not yet on Facebook.

Depending on how you’ve got your cloud storage set up, it’s not likely you've got all your media in one centralized location. Today, Google is taking steps to solve that for us. In Drive, you’ll soon see a new “Google Photos” menu option, which brings all your photo and video storage to a more convenient location. This move was rumored earlier this month, though it’s not exactly what sources claimed Google may end up doing.

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.
