This Is Not A Hubble Photo Of A Supernova -- It's Food

Ajay Malghan makes a living by playing with food and taking pictures of it. He cuts a thin slice of carrot, kiwi or any other fruit, presses it in between two glass sheets and experiments with light, colours and proportions. The result are these awesome abstract pictures.


Impressive Photo Of Hundreds Of Flying Rays Is One Beautiful Nightmare

This photograph of a large school of mobula rays by Eduardo Lopez Negrete is one of the entries for the 2014 National Geographic Traveller Photo Contest. Keep in mind that these majestic creatures can reach a 5.2m wingspan and weigh over 1000kg. It may look like a nightmare, but they are harmless.


A Triptych That Proves Portrait-Oriented Video Isn't Always Horrible

Usually, we are very much against shooting video with your phone in portrait orientation, because it looks like rubbish for the most part. But Dan Toth did something we never thought of, using three portrait-oriented videos to make a lovely triptych of his neighbourhood in Sunnyside, Queens.


Cyclist Films His Own Road Accident, Saves Life Miraculously

“The second time I rode into London in an effort to gain some fitness, rather than take the train, ended like this,” says YouTube user cyclejack. “This” being an idiot in a car deciding to ignore him, ramming and sending him and his bicycle into the air.

I Don't Know Where Buildings Start Or End In This Crazy Photo Of Hong Kong

Briefly: National Geographic’s Photo of the Day — captured by Simon Kwan — shows Hong Kong in all its glorious urban madness. When I first saw it I thought it was a collage made with multiple shots and mirrored images. It’s not. It’s just the city photographed from Beacon Hill.


All The Supernovas Ever Photographed By NASA

Image Cache: NASA has revealed spectacular, newly reprocessed images of four of the most amazing supernovas ever captured by a human science instrument — the Crab Nebula (top), Tycho, G292.0+1.8, and 3C58 — to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the Chandra observatory. I decided to go one step further and collect them all.


That Predator-Vision iPhone Camera Case Is Finally Available

Back in January, we stumbled across one of the most exciting iPhone accessories we’ve seen in years. FLIR took the thermal imaging technology it sells to law enforcement and the military and squeezed it down into a compact iPhone 5/5S case called the FLIR ONE that will finally be available for pre-order starting tomorrow for $US350.


A Dome Packed With 480 Cameras Captures Detailed 3D Images In Motion

If you’ve ever watched behind-the-scenes footage of a film with extensive visual effects, you’ve probably seen actors wearing ping-pong ball covered motion capture suits bringing digital characters to life. But researchers at Carnegie Mellon have come up with a better way to capture 3D motion that can be implemented almost anywhere, even inside an entire stadium, without the need for those awkward suits.


This Sinister Album Art Tells A Tale Of Suburban Souls Possessed

Photographer Todd Baxter created this series of sinister images as album art for a forthcoming release entitled “They Want My Soul” by Spoon. Designed to feel like stills from a ’70s psychological thriller, I hope they take this concept and make a video.


Flying Man Flies So Close To The Cliff That He Can High Five Someone

Video: Scotty Bob, the crazy guy zipping the air in the wingsuit, is flying so fast you might miss it but he comes so impossibly close to scraping the mountain on some of his turns that he can pretty much high five the photographer taking a picture of him.
