Time-Lapse Video: Flowers Opening

timelapse-flowersopening

It took David de los Santos 9 months and 50,000 pictures to compile the following footage (the final video has around 5,000 images). He had to find flowers that would open fairly quickly; the interval between images was anywhere between 1 and 10 minutes. The flowers used include: Lillium, hibiscus, carnations, orchids, dandelions, lilies, daisies, alstroemeria, peonies and nigella damask.

Watch the video of the flowers blooming below.

Best of Kickstarter: $35,000 Potato Salad

kickstarter-potatosalad

It’s been 5 days since Zack Danger Brown launched a Kickstarter with the sole mission to make potato salad for the first time. His original goal was $10. More than 3,000 backers have pledged a total of $35,000 and counting.

As more money comes he adds new stretch goals; things like “better mayonnaise” and “call a chef to get a better recipe”. It appears there will now be at least 4 potato salads made, one of which will be vegan. Pledging even $3 gets you a bite of the potato salad mailed to you and he’ll say your name out loud while he makes it. This is pretty much the best Kickstarter ever. Support it here.

Thanks to @elrizzy for the heads up.
