Serge Brunier has created an incredible 360-degree panorama he calls “The Sky of the Earth:”

The images were collected from two exceptional astronomical sites, the Atacama Desert in the southern hemisphere and the Caldeira de Taburiente in the Canary Islands in the northern hemisphere.

It is the sky that everyone can relate to that I wanted to show — its constellations, its thousands year old stars, whose names have nourished all childhoods, its myths and stories of gods, titans, and heroes shared by all civilisations since Homo became sapiens. The image was therefore made as man sees it, with a regular digital camera.

You have to check this out.

Part 2 is still a work in progress. This is another multiple-exposure view from my back porch last night.

Nothing Is Still, Part 1

I created this image last night from multiple exposures taken from my back deck. It was foggy, and I like how the depth of the various trees on the hill came out. This was just my first experiment.

(full-sized version).

Anthony Aylomamitis created this stunning image that records of the sun’s position, viewed from the Parthenon, on a total of 41 occasions between January 12 and December 21, 2002. The top position is the Summer Solstice in the northern hemisphere, the bottom the Winter Solstice. Pretty freakin’ awesome.

Zero-Ink Printing
Posted on July 15th, 2009 at 2:40 pm by Steve

Xconomy magazine calls it the technology that might have saved Polaroid: a small, portable, low-power, inkless printing system. It’s basically a special paper that’s got embedded crystals inside of it that turn from white to either cyan, magenta, yellow, or black when exposed to heat. The printer itself is a little thermal print head that can deliver microbursts of different temperatures at very precise locations.

Just like with the old SX-70, the real money is in selling the paper. The first commercially available devices using Zink are on sale now.
