The idea was simple; Launch a QR code, one of the most innovative technologies of the XXI century, made by Portuguese cobblestones, one of the most ancient Portuguese traditions.
From the fusion between technology and historical traditions a new and innovative way was born to promote Portugal abroad and to provide relevant cultural content for tourists visiting Chiado.

How many cameras can we find on Curiosity rover, the wall-e like robot that is actually rooming around the surface of Mars? Let's find out.
The rover's mast features seven cameras: the Remote Micro Imager, part of the Chemistry and Camera suite; four black-and-white Navigation Cameras (two on the left and two on the right) and two color Mast Cameras (Mastcams). The left Mastcam has a 34-millimeter lens and the right Mastcam has a 100-millimeter lens. There is one camera on the end of a robotic arm that is stowed in this graphic; it is called the Mars Hand Lens Imager (MAHLI). There are nine cameras hard-mounted to the rover: two pairs of black-and-white Hazard Avoidance Cameras in the front, another two pair mounted to the rear of the rover, (dashed arrows in the graphic) and the color Mars Descent Imager (MARDI), for a grand total of seveteen cameras.
Despite this unbelieveble ammount of hardware, it' absolutely not easy to output such an ultra-resolution, smooth-motion, detail-enhanced, color-corrected, interpolated from the original 4 frames per second to 30 frames per second footage. This video took fours weeks in the production, and plays real-time at the speed that Curiosity descended to the surface of Mars on August 6, 2012. If we think about it, it's the first proper sci-fi movie from the red planet. 20th Century Fox better start bewarin of Nasa entertainment.

If the concept of augmented reality always freaked you out and Google Project Glass is already freaking you out, than you should avoid to watch the following futuristic short by Eran May-raz and Daniel Lazo or you will probably freak out.
Avoid also furnitures and elegant people.

Luke Million did it again! After the unbelievable success of his pumping iron workout track "Arnold", he's now paying omage to the Califonia's Governor once again, this time with a synth banger track loaded with puns from the 1997 movie Batman and Robin by none other than the "coolest" villain of all times, the one and only Mr. Freeze.

Now that it's clear that Luke has a crush on Arnie, we are pretty sure that he won't have problems to find some good lines to work on for the next years.

The concept is simple and it is another visual exploration of something new and totally different: advertising photographer Tim Tadder found a bunch of awesome bald men and hurled water balloons at their heads, to capture the explosion of water at various intervals.
He used a laser and sound trigger to capture the right moments for each subject to create just the head of hair that fit best with the face.

This is our little tribute to the greatest explorer of all times.

"Neil Armstrong was among the greatest of American heroes - not just of his time, but of all time.
When he and his fellow crew members lifted off aboard Apollo 11 in 1969, they carried with them the aspirations of an entire nation. They set out to show the world that the American spirit can see beyond what seems unimaginable - that with enough drive and ingenuity, anything is possible. And when Neil stepped foot on the surface of the moon for the first time, he delivered a moment of human achievement that will never be forgotten.

Neil's spirit of discovery lives on in all the men and women who have devoted their lives to exploring the unknown - including those who are ensuring that we reach higher and go further in space. That legacy will endure - sparked by a man who taught us the enormous power of one small step"
US President Barack Obama

Safe travels, Commander.

“This mix ended up being a lot of different things. They are mainly influences of mine, but arranged in a way that would flow. After a night out, the last thing I want to hear is more noise. These are my favorite sparse, moody and beautiful songs. This is what I’d want to listen to on a drive home"

Samsara is a Sanskrit word that means “the ever turning wheel of life” and is the point of departure for the filmmakers as they search for the elusive current of interconnection that runs through our lives.
Filmed over a period of almost five years and in twenty-five countries, the movie transports us to sacred grounds, disaster zones, industrial sites, and natural wonders. By dispensing with dialogue and descriptive text, Samsara subverts our expectations of a traditional documentary, instead encouraging our own inner interpretations inspired by images and music that infuses the ancient with the modern.

The filmmakers approach non verbal filmmaking with an understanding that it must live up to the standard of great still photography, revealing the essence of a subject, not just its physical presence.
Samsara was photographed entirely in 70mm film utilizing both standard frame rates and with a motion control time-lapse camera designed specifically for this project. This camera system allows perspective shifts to reveal extraordinary views of ordinary scenes. The images were then transferred through the highest resolution scanning process available to the new 4K digital projection format that allows for mesmerizing images of unprecedented clarity.

"Kilian Martin is the skater I’ve been waiting for – Forover twenty years.
Hailing from Madrid, Spain, Kilian has gathered up his influences and inspirations, and then taking from the best of them – Unchained himself from tradition and any social justification – Completely reinterpreting skateboarding on his own terms.More so than method, Kilian trusts in himself – His body, his spirit and his skateboard are one."

On July the 18th Santeria Milano will bring you 'Analog vs Digital', a show offered from Recipient.cc, a collective of young artists, questioning and pushing the feeble boundaries between art and music. A display of visual and audio perfomances for humans and beyond, questioning the endless contrast between analog and digital, on the tomorrows that will never arrive and the future that could still happen. The sounds of genomes, an animated castle, the robots and other interactive objects will throw you into an imaginary future created from the collective, everything cradled from the live sounds and the analog synths from Rondam.

And here's a little extra from the magic recipient: the sound of the future extracted in the form of an mpfree. Handle with care.

From the sloppyness of Mtv reality shows to Soulja Boy's label SODMG, with some good work ethic Houston's rapper Riff Raff could probably have become a pro baller, but he choosed to be into dirty south hip hop instead.
Is this for real or just a viral phenomenon? Only time will tell.

It's so sad that the discovery of the Higgs boson, one of the biggest leap forward for science in the last one hundred years, has been just an usual line among breaking news. If nobody thinks that is something to discuss about, we do. Let them talk about Paris Hilton starting her dj career.

The Higgs boson is one of the final puzzle pieces required for a complete understanding of the standard model of physics—the so-far successful theory that explains how fundamental particles interact with the elementary forces of nature.
The so-called God particle was proposed in the 1960s by Peter Higgs to explain why some particles, such as quarks—building blocks of protons, among other things—and electrons have mass, while others, such as the light-carrying photon particle, do not.

Higgs's idea was that the universe is bathed in an invisible field similar to a magnetic field. Every particle feels this field—now known as the Higgs field—but to varying degrees.
If a particle can move through this field with little or no interaction, there will be no drag, and that particle will have little or no mass. Alternatively, if a particle interacts significantly with the Higgs field, it will have a higher mass.
The idea of the Higgs field requires the acceptance of a related particle: the Higgs boson.

According to the standard model, if the Higgs field didn't exist, the universe would be a very different place, said SLAC's Peskin, who isn't involved in the LHC experiments. "It would be very difficult to form atoms," Peskin said. "So our orderly world, where matter is made of atoms, and electrons form chemical bonds—we wouldn't have that if we did not have the Higgs field."
In other words: no galaxies, no stars, no planets, no life on Earth.
And no fucking Paris Hilton djing.

In today’s paralegal community, new issues and concerns regarding criminal justice are always appearing. Right now, one of the key reasons for American citizens serving jail time has to do with laws and regulations surrounding the use and possession of marijuana.
It may be legal in 16 states, but in the other 32, it’s putting people in jail every day. As a result, jails are overflowing, the money allocated for those serving time is rising, and yet illegal marijuana use remains as prevalent as ever.
As the economy flounders and tries to stabilize itself, it’s important to consider the social, judicial, and economic ramifications of legalizing marijuana. Legalizing marijuana would turn one of the nation’s largest cash crops into something marketable, taxable, and regulated. If considering all this on a global scale, the numers just gets humongous.

The Miami Heat have won this year's NBA title, so we feel it's time to Celebrate one of America's most disliked and influential athletes: they called him Akron Hammer, L-Train, The Choosen One, and even King. All we know is that his name is Lebron James, and he's the most dominant basketball player of the last years.
Let's go way back to the days of Akron afros and high school dunks. The long road to that ring proves that even those destined for greatness have to earn it.

At the conclusion of the season, James was named league MVP for the third time, finishing with averages of 27.1 points, 7.9 rebounds, 6.2 assists, and 1.9 steals per game on 53 percent shooting. In the playoffs game 4 agaist Indiana, James turned in one of the best all-around performances of his career, registering 40 points, 18 rebounds, and 9 assists in a winning effort on the road.
In the "do or die" game 5 in the Finals, James registered his only triple-double of the season with 26 points, 11 rebounds, and 13 assists as Miami defeated Oklahoma City for their second ever championship and James' first championship. He was named the Finals MVP with averages of 28.6 points, 10.2 rebounds, and 7.4 assists per game. His postseason totals were 30.3 points, 9.7 rebounds, and 5.6 assists per game.

The Fibonacci sequence is named after Leonardo of Pisa, aka Fibonacci, although the sequence had been described earlier in Indian mathematics in connection with Sanskrit prosody.
In the West, the Fibonacci sequence first appears in the book Liber Abaci (1202), where Fibonacci considers the growth of an idealized and biologically unrealistic rabbit population, assuming that: a newly born pair of rabbits, one male, one female, are put in a field; rabbits are able to mate at the age of one month so that at the end of its second month a female can produce another pair of rabbits; rabbits never die and a mating pair always produces one new pair (one male, one female) every month from the second month on. The puzzle that Fibonacci posed was: how many pairs will there be in one year?
At the end of the each month, the number of pairs of rabbits is equal to the number of new pairs plus the number of pairs alive last month. This is the Fibonacci sequence, which is intimately connected with the golden ratio.
Applications include computer algorithms such as the Fibonacci search technique and the Fibonacci heap data structure, and graphs called Fibonacci cubes. They also appear in biological settings,such as branching in trees, Phyllotaxis (the arrangement of leaves on a stem), the fruit spouts of a pineapple, the flowering of artichoke, an uncurling fern and the arrangement of a pine cone.

If you think that skateboarding is all about rails and ramps, you're wrong. Flatland is where this sport was born: just you, your board, your shoes and the good ol' ground. Than one summer pepole dropped into empty pools and some hairy dude eventually got airborne. When they got back on the streets the ollie suddenly became part of the game, endless new possibilities were just ahead.
Enjoy the flip insanity filmed at 1,000 frames per second with a Redlake N3 high speed camera.

Since skateboarding trick names are defined by common usage and these tricks are not very common, some of them don't have well-established names. So here are my best guesses as to what they should be called:
  • Kyle McPherson -- nollie dolphin flip (AKA nollie forward flip)
  • Cameron Carmichael -- backside 180 casper flip (?) (or bs 180 hospital flip)
  • Jerrod Skorupski -- nollie heelflip bs body varial
  • David Case - nollie 360 shuv underflip (AKA nerd flip)
  • David Case - frontside shuv underflip (AKA kiwi flip)
  • Dustin Blauvelt - hardflip pretzel
  • Dustin Blauvelt - Merlin twist (switch front foot impossible fs 180)
  • Dustin Blauvelt - nollie heelflip indy grab
  • Shane Anderson - early grab frontside 180 fingerflip (?)
  • Jovan Pierson - pressure hardflip (?)
  • Jovan Pierson - ?? I don't know what this is, I just call it a Jovan flip
  • Erick Schaefer - backside pop shuv underflip
  • Tim Hamp - Nollie pressure hardflip (?)

Some nostalgia is just what Ed Banger records was missing, and the freshman is providing some quality one. This is the closing track of Mickey's Moonlight enchanting album "And The Time Axis Manipulation Corporation"
A lot of people may probably find this hippie vocoder sound a little bit old and akward. The same reasons why we're loving it.

A continuos challenge for designers worldwide is to create nice products which performs and look great but are eighter stackable or have a minimal size during transportation.
With this aim the Netherland based Studio Mango unvealed two amazing pieces of lighting design: the Spring Lamp, a coiled length of rubber which when hung it unfolds itself like a full bell shade, and the Lygo Lamb, basically a DiY lamp made of 144 lego-like curved bricks. Both -when not assembled- are small enough to be inserted in a letter box.
Simple, smart, playfull... genius.

Love is the most powerful force in the universe, and it's just what we're living for.
Sadly, as time goes by, people use to get a little careless about their relationships, but not Sean Ohlenkamp, the creative director of many inspired commercials. He placed a magic folder on his wife's desktop to celebrate their third anniversary. More precious than a diamond ring.

In this post the best thing i can do is to quote the comment Rythm Droid wrote on youtube. He's a electronic music genius and we just love him.
No matter how hard people try nowadays to make forward leaps in technologically enhanced audio-visual art, so many creators miss something.
This film has that something: aesthetic value and pleasing qualities. Call me old-fashioned but I get so agitated by art that is 100% experimental with no regard for the human hearts that are witnessing it.
