Oh god, why isn’t this mine?
This is the most amazing quilt I have ever seen.
Picked up a WIP from way over a year ago and sort of finished it, finally. Have some badass!Azi with some endgame yellow smoke.
Friendly note that I have a Society6 account where you can purchase prints (and other things), including fandom stuff. Shipping is apparently free through Monday. :)
Ooo who’s the artist? Is this regular body paint? (It doesn’t look like tattoo to me but I have really limited experiences with body art so I could be wrong.)
Anti Facial Recognition Visor
Interesting approach to avoid identification from cameras by lighting key areas of the face (video embedded below, via the great DigInfo):
This is the world’s first pair of glasses which prevent facial recognition by cameras. They are currently under development by Japan’s National Institute of Informatics.
Photos taken without people’s knowledge can violate privacy. For example, photos may be posted online, along with metadata including the time and location. But by wearing this device, you can stop your privacy from being infringed in such ways.
“You can try wearing sunglasses. But sunglasses alone can’t prevent face detection. Because face detection uses features like the eyes and nose, it’s hard to prevent just by concealing your eyes. This is the privacy visor I have developed, which uses 11 near-infrared LEDs. I’m switching it on now. It prevents face detection, like this.”
“Light from these near-infrared LEDs can’t be seen by the human eye, but when it passes through a camera’s imaging device, it appears bright. The LEDs are installed in these locations because, a feature of face detection is, the eyes and part of the nose appear dark, while another part of the nose appears bright. So, by placing light sources mostly near dark parts of the face, we’ve succeeded in canceling face detection characteristics, making face detection fail.”
Compared with previous ways of physically hiding the face, this technology can protect privacy without obstructing communication, as all users need to do is wear a pair of glasses.
1) It looks like a souped up version of my lab safety glasses.
2) Someday we will have the merging of this with google’s glasses and it will very James Bond and AWESOME.
Those are some awesome candle holders. I wonder where I can buy them….
Every time hobbit gifs crosses my dash it looks more epic.

Liquid Glacial Table by Zaha Hadid
Hadid on his work:
The Liquid Glacial design embeds surface complexity and refraction within a powerful fluid dynamic. The elementary geometry of the flat table top appears transformed from static to fluid by the subtle waves and ripples evident below the surface, while the table’s legs seem to pour from the horizontal in an intense vortex of water frozen in time.
