Fotomo!

Imagine Julian Beever and Peter Callesen built a robot that had an eye for photography… Presenting the incredible World of Fotomo by Kimio Itozaki. Itozaki creates little dioramas by shooting photos on the street from all different angles and then assembles the photos to recreate the perspective. The best part about his work is that he’s offering it up for free – you can actually print, cut-out, and build a Fotomo yourself!

Download and build your own Fotomo here:

Google Cultural Institute’s New Art Camera

Google

It took the Google Cultural Institute five years to archive 200 artworks in super high resolution (we’re talking gigapixels). Now they’ve scanned 1,000 in just a few months all thanks to a new camera! The device, dubbed the Art Camera, has cut down capture time from a full day to around 30 minutes. With 20 cameras built, Google has been lending them out to major institutions in cities across the globe free of charge!

It is pretty incredible how far you can zoom into the artworks; have a look here. Watch the video below.
