Nazca City

Gear  |  Projects
"Nazca City" is a land art project, the drawing of a true scale map of an imaginary city onto the surface of the Peruvian desert. To do this we built a robot which moves autonomously, plowing the ground to uncover its underlying color. Because of its scale, the map can only be appreciated as a whole from certain a height by means of airplains or satellite imaging. The project is inspired by the gigantic figures drawn onto the desert by the ancient Nazca culture (200 BC - 600 AD), which can still be seen today.

Curly Cable for iPad and iPhone

Array
Gear  |  Projects
It's a Kickstarter project already funded at three times the level required to move into production — with 54 days to go.
Cool!
From the Kickstarter website:
"Curly Cable
This project is dedicated to all very intense iPad and iPhone users.
At the end of the day we always run out of batteries — and that's when we need more to use our iDevices.
But — common recharging cables are VERY SHORT and they make the use of the iPad and iPhone very uncomfortable.
That's why we propose to you the Curly Cable: an extendible spring cable that allows you to keep using your devices — in a comfortable way.
The Curly Cable never tangles and extends from 8 inches to 70 inches (20cm to 180cm).
Curly Cable is long enough to let you relax on a couch and:
• watch an entire movie (without draining the batteries)
• play your favorite video game nonstop
• talk for hours to your friends
• surf the web all night "
$15 gets you one once they start churning them out.

He captured a photo every 5 seconds using an intervalometer with his Canon 60D while in his car, and by creating individual time-lapse videos when parked or exploring an area. The result is this epic 5-minute long time-lapse."
