The Very Slow Movie Player

VSMP is an object that contains a Raspberry Pi computer, custom software, and a reflective ePaper display (similar to a Kindle), all housed inside a 3D printed case. Every 2.5 minutes a frame from the film stored on the computer’s memory card is extracted, converted to black and white using a dithering algorithm, and then communicated to the reflective ePaper display. This adds up to playing the film at a rate of 24 frames per hour, which is in contrast to the traditional speed of 24 frames per second. That’s the slow part, obviously.

Großartiges Projekt von Dash Marshall, das ich mir auch sofort in Wohn-, Schlaf- und Arbeitszimmer stellen würde. (via Kottke)

Your favorite tumblr for the next 5 minutes (52): replaceface

replaceface nimmt klassische Portraits und ersetzt die Gesichter durch die von modernen Berühmtheiten:

George Dawe was an English portrait artist who painted 329 portraits of Russian generals active during Napoleon’s invasion of Russia for the Military Gallery of the Winter Palace, Saint Petersburg, Russia. I’m using digital copies of these paintings as a basis for my own work which involves incorporating celebrities into the paintings using photoshop.

Alle Bilder sind als Prints verfügbar und ich bin kurz davor mir ein imposantes Nic-Cage-Portrait zu kaufen.

Short Trip

Short Trip is the first instalment in a collection of interactive illustrations created for the web. It has been created as a study into capturing the essence of graphite on paper within a digital context, and to learn more about web-based graphics technologies. Short Trip will run on most devices supporting WebGL, including mobile devices.

Sehr tolle und beeindruckende Arbeit von Alexander Perrin. (via Waxy)
