Morning Linkage (Dec 1)


There may have been video from this Japanese live-action super hero series post­ed here before. But how can any­one resist this set of per­fect­ly posed pub­lic­i­ty shots. Not to men­tion that awe­some teal and red liv­er­ied mid-80’s Japanese dirt bike.

For more Japanese super­hero on bikes gig­gles try this search on the New Cafe Racer Society.

There will be opin­ions about this bike. The Sbay Flying 1800.

Sub-300 pounds, 250 sin­gle, and not embar­rass­ing to look at. Perhaps a new cafe styled entry-level bike is just what the world needs. Tha Misfit.

Science — Images

Phytoplankton bloom off the coast of Namibia.

Playing with Gigapan. Using robots to move cam­eras to cre­ate per­fect­ly stitch­able images. Zoom in, zoom out. A flock of hum­ming birds, a school of fish, and penguins.

Ultraviolet images of the Andromeda galaxy. The vis­i­ble light pic­tures obscure a lot of the details that the UV images pro­vide. (Nifty roll-over effect too.)

Art, Images, and Design

From yes­ter­day’s ani­ma­tion. The cre­ator Javier Olivares. Love his blocky style and the range of projects.
