This week on the blog we met GayBird, an experimental instrument maker and our new Creator, we discovered a dress that you can control with your mind, we marvelled at the beauty of the LHC, checked out Iris Van Herpen’s newest collection, learned how you can make music with coloured liquid, found out what Reggie Watt’s favourite LCD Soundsystem track is in episode two of our SHUT UP AND PLAY THE HITS video series, got the inside scoop on indie game development from Kellee Santiago, looked at how space travel may be about to enter the commercial age, and rounded up some great levitation photographers.
