Hyped: The Week In Links 11/16

On the blog this week we discovered in Japan you can get a 3D printed action figure of yourself, saw how fashion company TIMEFLY were bringing the virtual aesthetic IRL, looked at some mindblowing technologies changing the filmic landscape, and broke down Ricky Eat Acid’s track “Climax” in our LAYERS column. We also profiled artist and hacker Zach Lieberman, worshipped at the iOS altar in Leigh Alexander’s Gamer’s Paradise column, found out how television could be projected onto your face, counted down some of our favorite experimental filmmakers, delved deeper into FIELD’s Energy Flow, and welcomed the release of Evan Boehm’s stunning interactive film The Carp and The Seagull.

And on the webs…

· GIF was named word of the year by Oxford Dictionaries.

· Dutch artist Caspar Berger 3D prints a replica of his own skeleton (above).

· Take a virtual interstellar journey and explore the Milky Way galaxy from the comfort of a browser with Chrome experiment 100,000 Stars.

· Carly Rae Jepsen’s annoying hit “Call Me Maybe” controlled by a person’s heartbeat. [via].
