    Sculpting and painting in Virtual Reality - Oculus Rift DK2 + Razer Hydra & Tiltbrush

    Info for video above:

    3D Sculpting system for virtual reality using Razer Hydra as input controllers and displayed on the Oculus Rift Development Kit 2 VR headset.

    Tiltbrush:

    Tilt Brush is a Virtual Reality Tool that paints the Space all around you. Paint thick, three-dimensional brush strokes, smoke, stars. Even light.

    Nominated for four Proto Awards including Best Interaction Design, Most Innovative, and Best Overall Virtual Reality Application. Winner of Best GUI.

    Both videos are pretty amazing. Can’t wait for VR to take off.

    Just the two of us

    Photographer Klaus Pichler takes pictures of Australian Cosplayers in their homes against the backdrop of their everyday lives. He says that the unknown identities and mundane activities give this project a very mysterious vibe.

  5. This is the chemical formula for love:

    C8H11NO2+C10H12N2O+C43H66N12O12S2
    dopamine, seratonin, oxytocin.

    It can be easily manufactured in a lab, but overdosing on any of them can cause schizophrenia, extreme paranoia, and insanity.

    Let that sink in.

Salvador Dali (1954) by Philippe Halsman

“Since I don’t smoke, I decided to grow a mustache - it is better for the health.
However, I always carried a jewel-studded cigarette case in which, instead of tobacco, were carefully placed several mustaches, Adolphe Menjou style. I offered them politely to my friends: “Mustache? Mustache? Mustache?”Nobody dared to touch them. This was my test regarding the sacred aspect of mustaches.” ― Salvador Dalí, Dalí’s Mustache

    Colossal, the Department of Incredible Insects recently encountered more photos of the fascinating work of French artist Hubert Duprat and his industrious Caddisflies (previously featured here).

    "Right now, in almost every river in the world, some 12,000 different species of caddisfly larvae wriggle and crawl through sediment, twigs, and rocks in an attempt to build temporary aquatic cocoons. To do this, the small, slow-moving creatures excrete silk from salivary glands near their mouths which they use like mortar to stick together almost every available material into a cozy tube. A few weeks later a fully developed caddisfly emerges and almost immediately flies away."

    Since the 1980s Duprat has been collecting caddisfly larvae from their normal environments and transporting them to aquariums in his studio. There he gently removes their own natural cocoons and puts the larvae in tanks filled with materials such as pearls, beads, opals, turquoise and pieces of 18-karat gold. The insects still do exactly what comes naturally to them, but in doing so they create exquisite gilded sculptures that they temporarily call home. If you saw them out of context, you’d never guess they’d been created insects.

    Visit Colossal for additional images and video of Hubert Duprat discussing these amazing insects and their shiny, shiny creations.

Supermarket store is entirely powered by food waste
Supermarkets are one of the worst offenders for food waste — not only do their pricing structures encourage consumers to buy more than they need, but they also throw away perfectly edible goods if they don’t look aesthetically appealing or have gone past their sell by date. While the Department of Sanitation New York has recently introduced a scheme that uses the city’s leftover food to power homes, UK supermarket giant Sainsbury’s has now created the first outlet in the country to be powered solely through food waste.
