nixie-wearable-selfie-drone

The days of having to hold a camera, or anything, in order to snap a selfie are numbered. Introducing Nixie, the wearable drone quadcopter that just won Intel’s $500,000 Make It Wearable prize. The product is still in development but the video below demonstrates how users will be able to wear a drone around their wrist and simply let it fly whenever they want to take a selfie. The quadcopter will lift off, snap some photos, and return.

Watch the video below.

Video of the Day: Black Atlass “Jewels” Directed by Yoann Lemoine

blackatlass-jewels

Love this video Yoann Lemoine directed for Black Atlass. Lemoine went back to his roots as a CGI artist and spent 8 months, in between touring as Woodkid, creating every shot in this on his own. He described his process saying “I used a DIY 3D scan system that rebuilds models from multiple still images, and what we call camera mapping” (source). I’d love access to a 3D scan system like this. Watch the gorgeous video below.
