Light Show Projects a Ghost Ship onto Water
Gear  |  Projects


This spectral image was a display at the Amsterdam Light Show Festival by VisualSKIN.  Hoses sprayed water at angles, creating planes that that could be used as projection screens. Titled 'Ghost Ship' the installation makes use of two intersecting images projected onto perpendicular curtains of water that can be viewed from multiple angles. The piece is in reference to a Dutch East India Company ship, The Amsterdam, that was wrecked in a storm during its maiden voyage to Batavia in 1749.

This is a GIF showing How a Handgun Works: 1911 .45. Artis Jacob O'Neal runs Animagraffs, site where he reveals the inner workings of objects like handguns, speakers, car or jet engines with great detail.
"The model 1911 handgun is named for the year it was formally adopted by the U.S. Army – and while it was replaced as an official service weapon in 1985, it’s still massively popular. Various manufacturers have created their own take on the 1911, but its basic function and operation remains in place over 100 years after its inception."

Man Tests First Dual Shoulder-Down Cyborg Arms

Man Tests First Dual ShoulderDown Cyborg Arms
Gear  |  Video


Meet Les Baugh. Les had both arms amputated at the shoulder after a freak electrical accident 40 years ago. Now he's the first person to successfully use the bilateral shoulder-down modular prosthetic limbs developed by the doctors and scientists at Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory. Each arms operates with a full 3-degrees of freedom and over 30-degrees of motion, and are controlled intuitively simply by thinking of moving a specific part. From watching the video, the technology obviously has a ways to go, but it's definitely a big step in the right direction. One of the scientists interviewed even references in five to ten years from now, he expects to be developing robotic prosthetics so advanced people will actually be cutting their own limbs off to get them

Japan: Breast Beautifying Hand On A Stick

Japan Breast Beautifying Hand On A Stick
Gear  |  Other
This is the Oppai Taisou Hand, a $28 piece of plastic that's supposed to make your breasts look and feel better.  It it works by dragging back fat around and adding it to your tits. Thankfully, there's an even shiftier explanation:
"Shindo explains that a woman's breasts are strung up by ligaments, and if these ligaments don't get sufficient movement, the fats in the breast will start to settle back against the chest muscles, resulting in unshapely, or even sagging boobies.
Oppai Hagashi supposedly detaches the breast ligaments from the chest muscles and directs the fats back to where they belong, restoring shape, while Oppai Yurashi resets the tension in the ligaments holding up the breasts, thus regaining elasticity and perkiness. The massage also improves blood circulation, which promotes healthier, beautifully shaped breasts
