Being on location isn't always possible as a photographer, so what can you do instead? Bring the location to you, of course. Or build it... in miniature.

The International Space Station will receive three Australian-designed cubesats today, with the launch scheduled for a little after 1pm AEST. Part of the QB50 project, the one-kilogram satellites will eventually make their way to Earth's lower thermosphere to conduct research that could impact everything from weather prediction to communications. Best of all, NASA will be livestreaming the launch from Cape Canaveral in Florida, starting from 12:45pm.

Physical controls are all the rage, but they've got nothing on sound! OK, they have everything on sound, but that hasn't stopped Andreas Refsgaard and Lasse Korsgaard, a pair of "interaction designers and creative coders", coming up with this experiment where one can play Wolfenstein 3D with just their mouth.

It's pilot season, and Amazon is again asking viewers to suggest which of their shows should move forward this year.
