Art Is Motion: Lexus 300h Mod Paints Driver’s Picture Based On How They Drive. [Video]

Art Is Motion: Lexus 300h paints a portrait of the drive based on how the drive.

Art collector Walter Vanhaerent’s Lexus 300h paints his portrait each time he takes it for a drive. From Gizmodo:

“The specially modified vehicle is half art project, half engineering experiment. Vanhaerent’s Lexus features a large LCD display that shows his portrait being generated by custom software that paints it in the style of artist Sergio Abliac. The slower Vanhaerent drives, the more detailed the portrait will be, and the faster he drives, the more abstract the brush strokes become.”

Cool project but unfortunately, the “Art Is Motion” mod doesn’t motivate the driver to go slower, on electric power alone; if Mr. Vanhaerent is feeling abstract, he’ll just floor it. One additional tweak, that only outputs a painting if the driver drives slower, and this ‘art’ project becomes a standard feature on all Lexus models. [Gizmodo]

Buying Dupé Bottled Air Is Just Plain Stupid. Buying Bottled Water Is…. [Video]

Dupé - Purveyors of fine bottled air.Brought to you by the purveyors of fine bottled breathing air – Dupé.***

Avoiding bottled water is easy – drink tap water. If you want to drink tap but you forgot your water bottle, drink water out of a sink with your hands. If you don’t have any hands, have somebody turn the water on for you and put your mouth on the spigot. I could go on but I think most people get it. Finding safe, drinkable tap water isn’t difficult.

Human Powered Ferris Wheel In Myanmar. [Video]

Human powered ferris wheel in Myanmar.

From the YouTube description:

“Movie was made at Luna park in Yangon (capitol of Myanmar) in January 2013. I could not believe my eyes to see man’s muscle power made a ferris wheel work. The height of the wheel was 10-15 meters. A few young men went to the top of the wheel. They climbed there without any safety protections. They were barefooted or wore flip-flops. At the top they stared to move one direction. The move made the wheel work slowly. When they reached the bottom of the wheel they jumped on the ground. Generally they were as agile as a monkey. Some strong and fit men speeded up ferris wheel. It was also stopped by man hands. Fuel cell generator made only lights work.”

Could it work here in the US? Have you been to a county fair lately? [Arbroath]
