    That’s amazing ! Now, please dudes make the same thing with a kind of space suit to make people drifting :)

  • Tommy

    I don’t see how everyone is calling this fake already. Did the artists say that? My roommate made a levitation device that worked on a much smaller scale, but in a similar manner.

      well, it’s done by an animation firm if that tells you anything.

  • porkchop

    not a fake! all they would have to do is power the electromagnets inside the balls in staggered stages, so that they’d pulse on and off (and so go up to the magnet and fall back down) in rotation like christmas lights. The result would be a kind of cascading slow-mo pillar. booya, naysayers.

Good News of the Day: Army of 1,000 Ducks Used as Brilliant Pesticide Alternative

Ducks

South Africa’s Vergenoegd vineyard in Stellenbosch keeps a flock of over 1,000 Indian Runner ducks to help combat tiny white dune snails that would otherwise destroy the budding vines. The ducks’ upright and slender posture allow them to navigate the rows of plants, clearing up to a hectare a day.

While the cost of keeping all these ducks is significantly higher than standard pesticides, the duck army is so effective that the vineyard uses minimal chemicals and is recognized for its sustainability. See more images by London-born, Cape Town-based photographer Mike Hutchings and a video of the ducks working below!
