Disney World Wristbands


A $1 billion project by Disney.

“A family of four can put MagicBands on after registering for the
cloud-based service, then instead of digging through cash or (the
unmaxed) credit cards, they can use their wrists to enter the park, buy
lunch, and even unlock their hotel room. A skeptic would point out that
such an interaction will disassociate people with spending money, and
that’s entirely true: Families will be able to enjoy Disney without the
constant reminder that the magic comes at a price.”


Man Walks All Day To Create Snow Patterns


“Artist Simon Beck must really love the cold weather! Along the frozen
lakes of Savoie, France, he spends days plodding through the snow in
raquettes (snowshoes), creating these sensational patterns of snow art.
Working for 5-9 hours a day, each final piece is typically the size of
three soccer fields! The geometric forms range in mathematical patterns
and shapes that create stunning, sometimes 3D, designs when viewed from
higher levels.”


Stand Up With No Hands To Live Longer!


If getting up from a game of Scrabble
on the floor this Christmas requires both hands, a lot of sighing and a
helpful tug from a grandchild, beware.

For the gloomy message from scientists is that you may not live as long as your flexible counterparts.

Those who can sit down and get up using only one hand – or no hands at all – are likely to live for longer, a study found.

Photos Captured Over Years With An Open Camera Shutter


“German photographer Michael Wesely has spent decades working on techniques for extremely long camera exposures — usually between two to three years. In the mid-1990s, he
began using the technique to document urban development over time, capturing years of building projects in single frames.”
