  • Nick

    Nice!

    [nitpick] The dimensions of the 2001 Space Odyssey monoliths are supposed to be exactly 1:4:9, not 2:4:8 [/nitpick]

    • haha yea i was thinking it would have been amazing to have skewed the dimensions to match the monolith and insert it into a recreation of the monkeys scene.

  • this is so slick! i wish i made this :(

  • Chris C.

    Yeah, it looks like 1:4:9 for sure. I don’t know where the writer got 2:4:8 from.

    • i got the dimensions directly from his website. i don’t know how the dimensions could be 2x4x8 but that’s what the website says!

  • Ha. I like this.

  • So far past the age of magnetic video, it’s a surprise someone hasn’t done this before. Anyway: awesome.

  • BRILLIANT!

Giveaway: QWSTION Weekender Bag

Switzerland-based QWSTION have teamed up with fashion designer Julian Zigerli to produce a special version of their Weekender bag and they sent us one. The iridescent surface displays an array of colours when light shines directly at it. Note: We shot the image above with a flash, and the colours have not been manipulated. Have a look below to see what the bag looks like with the lights on.

There’s also a second set of straps so the bag can be worn over the shoulder or as a backpack. We have one of these special bags to give away to our readers so if you wanna snag it, leave a comment below and tell us the first place you’ll travel with it.
