    This is mesmerizing and the end is like the grand finale of a fireworks show. The making-of video is good too.

    great video, so imaginative and simple. Agree with mike m, and Toeger, I’ve seen it a ton of places as well, but it’s everywhere theese days – the video. But the site you mention is really cool by the way

    mesmerizing. and having done some middling stop motion work myself, and the making of video is hilarious (and painfully relatable)

Hilarious Hack of the Day: The Anti-Selfie Stick


For anyone who finds selfie sticks too embarrassing to use in public, a guy named Mansun has come up with a solution. Made with two right hands ordered off Amazon (naturally), two original selfie sticks, and a shirt with extremely long sleeves, Mansun’s hack certainly addresses one problem. (Of course, he may have just created another).

Click here for a more detailed account of his process. More hilarious images below, love the shot of the shirt sleeves!
