It's long been known that screenwriter Max Landis pitched his own take on a Power Rangers reboot, before we eventually wound up with the movie we're getting next year. Although it's unlikely we'll ever see Landis' take come to life, we now have a glimpse at what might have been — at least for its villain.

Video: Working with glass not only requires a lot of artistic talent, it also requires nerves of steel given how fragile the material is. But master gaffer James Mongrain makes it look as easy as playing with Play-Doh as he turns a solid blob of molten glass into an intricate dragon sculpture.
Video: Hieronymus Bosch's The Garden of Earthly Delights is one of the most famous paintings in history. The centre panel of the triptych showcases a bunch of naked people enjoying themselves in the most hedonistic ways possible at the time (or I guess, any time). Studio Smack updated the painting a bit with a modern spin and added a whole lot of other kind of weirdness — cloud cows, tentacle towers, undulating sacs of human faces, a spider made of human legs doing the can-can and giant headless chickens showing signs of leprosy.
The men and women who came up with the 88 officially-recognised constellations definitely had richer imaginations than I do. I don't see animals, dragons and centaurs when I look at the night sky, and I'm generally OK with that. Still, when I came across this new celestial map, I got a small taste of the wonder the ancient Greeks must have felt gazing at the stars.
Video: Instead of sticking his camera's lens in the eyepiece of a powerful telescope peering into the heavens, filmmaker Thomas Vanz captured this stunning footage of what looks like a giant star going all supernova by actually pointing his camera at a glass aquarium filled with colourful inks and water.
In a world first, Geoscience Australia has painted an Indigenous artwork on its satellite antenna as part of a major upgrade – making the Alice Springs antenna unique in more ways than one.
The upgraded Alice Springs antenna was commissioned today in a ceremony highlighting both the antenna's key role in the United States Landsat program, and the artwork painted on its surface that recognises the Arrernte people as traditional custodians of the land.
Video: Thanks to the internet and being able to easily share videos of them playing out, those pointlessly complicated Rube Goldberg machines are more popular than ever. But this wonderful kinetic sculpture actually uses the internet as one of its countless mechanisms so that it's able to play out across five different cities across the United States.
The latest masterpiece to get the action figure treatment in Figma's Table Museum series is the tortured soul featured in Edvard Munch's famous The Scream painting from 1893. The figure won't ever stop screaming, but with its articulated arms and torso you can at least pose it to look slightly less upset.
Video: Filip Sterckx's Gallery Invasion is a clever, kooky and totally adorable art show that brings art works to life through projection mapping. It's like those Night at the Museum movies but with drawings deciding to jump out of their canvas and play rough with each other all over the gallery instead of museum exhibits messing with Ben Stiller for some reason. But it's a lot of fun to see the artwork appear self-aware and interact with its surroundings.
