Mad Quickies: 3D Minecraft, Crocheted Dry Leaf Art, Periodic Table Soap and More!
Holy Moly, gang. I have some really great stories for you today. Like, just check this stuff out. I can’t tell you how happy I am about these.
Have you ever imagined actually being inside the world of Minecraft? I have. Like, a bunch of times. Well we don’t have to imagine it anymore. I can’t even describe what is happening in this augmented reality demo from the E3 conference, but a whole Mine craft world unfolds on top of a table. I just… just look.
This is really blowing my mind. I’ve worked with skeleton leaves before, but this is just on a totally different level – Artist Susanna Bauer takes dry leaves and crochets them together. She cuts holes in dry leaves and crochets a pattern into the hole. She stitches together dry leaves into tiny little cubes. Dry. Leaves.

This is really great. A film that raises money for charity, “Legends of the Knight is a documentary film that tells the true stories of individuals who were inspired to become real-life heroes because of their childhood love of Batman. The film expresses the power all of us have to be heroic and has inspired viewers of all ages to embrace their inner superhero.” -Via Amy
Photography has been such a valuable tool in making scientific discoveries and now there’s an exhibition that documents this collaboration. “Revelations: Experiments in Photography investigates the influence of early scientific photography on modern and contemporary art and includes some of the rarest images from the pioneers of photography.” The shows is running at London’s Science Museum. -Via Amy
Have you ever wanted to watch all of the Star Wars films at the same time, but thought to yourself “I Just don’t have the 6 screens necessary to make it happen”. Well guess what? Now you can watch all 6 films play simultaneously. Overlapped. At the same time. One right on top of the other. I’m not kidding, this is real.
