Hyped: The Week In Links 1/18/13
On the blog this week we explored how Shapeways is leading the 3D printing revolution, saw what the world’s cities would look like lit just by stars, looked at video game studio Tale of Tales, found out about a jailbroken Kindle that emails Amazon’s CEO every time a page is bookmarked, found out what bad dreams look like in GIF form, spoke with Sundance Institute’s New Frontier Story Lab, and launched our Facebook 3D printing art project.
And on the web…
· Animation ponders the decline of print media using a 3D rendered dinosaur.
· A guy outsourced his job to China so he could browse Reddit and watch cat videos when he was meant to be working.
· Swiss art collective Bitnik have sent Julian Assange a package that photographs his surroundings and uploads them to a website so the parcel can be followed in real-time.
· Exhibition “Juxtapose” by Daniel Schwarz shows contrasting Google Maps images of far away places shown in different seasons (above).
