If your wall needs decorating and you have a lot of time on your hands (and we mean a lot), you can try making a giant calendar for you wall with photos. All you need to do is go photo-hunting for numbers, days of the week, and filler squares. Then print out the photos as squares and arrange them on your wall based on the current month.
While shooting the images and printing them out is a lot of work (and a lot of fun), updating the calendar every month is what will be extremely time-consuming in the long run. However, if you’re up for it, this is a fun and creative way to spice up your wall with photo awesomeness.

This surreal video might seem like some sort of abstract, computer-generated art project at first glance, but take a closer look and you’ll probably realize what’s going on.

What does a rainbow mean to you? An interesting atmospheric phenomena…. gay pride… the 42nd Infantry Division? To me a rainbow screams, “Polaroid Corporation!”. Even when Polaroid was actually making cameras, the camera straps were disappointingly plain vanilla. Polaroid missed a critical branding opportunity! In this tutorial, I’ll attempt to make a new camera strap for my Polaroid 100 camera by recycling rainbow colored luggage belts.
Want to have the geekiest photo-storage device amongst all your photo-loving friends? Check out this 1:18 scale replica of the DeLorean Time Machine from Back to the Future. In addition to be a super faithful clone of the “real thing”, it also doubles as a 500GB Seagate external hard drive, allowing you to grab images from the past if you ever accidentally delete them. Well… maybe not, but for $250 you get a lot more than the average, boring old hard drive.
MIOPS is a new smartphone-controlled camera trigger that combines all of the features photographers want in a high-speed camera trigger into one convenient device.
Here’s one of those “I could do that! Yeah, but you didn’t” things: a cat named Cooper recently published a book filled with his photographs, titled “Cat Cam“. Basically, a couple named Michael and Deirdre Cross decided to attach a micro camera to their cat’s collar, automatically snapping photographs every two minutes. The book has received pretty positive reviews from both critics (Good Morning America, People Magazine, etc…) and customers.
“Photocopy Romance” is a creative stop motion video made with a scanner.
