Mystery Lake

My friend Scoot and I went for a little hike and a swim on Sunday morning. I like to keep my spots secret but this one really is called Mystery Lake. You can’t really swim in a lake in late-September out here too often, but summer has stuck around a bit.

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.
