World Builder

For the past 30 years Dan Ohlmann has been distilling the world down to 1/24th of its actual size. He’s a miniaturist, and his photographic memory allows him to precisely replicate spaces he has seen before. The optical illusions are incredible. See for yourself.

Locating A Location

Some people, myself included, are fascinated with famous film locations and like to visit them long after the crew have packed up and left. Phil Grishayev is such a man and is lucky to live in an area that contains more than its fair share of iconic places. Take a look at his Instagram account for lots more great examples.

Because photography and holidays go hand in hand, online travel booking website Hoppa decided to create a momentous video compilation of travel photography trends from the late 1800’s to present.

Mission Centaur

Since astronomers first discovered exoplanets (planets that orbit a star other than our own) in 1995, we've come to learn that there are a staggering amount of planets out there in the universe. But, we have yet to find one that's habitable, aside from our own. The Search for Earth Proxima is a short documentary about a group of scientists and their mission to build a telescope to hunt for an Earth-like planet around our closest neighbour: Alpha Centauri.

Dawn of Games

Many people think that 'Pong' was the very first video game. However, as this video explains, 'Pong' was actually the culmination of several efforts that were made back as far as 1948.

Fire Rain

I'd like to try this but with a dSLR and not a GoPro. Rob Nelson and Jonas Stenstom from Untamed Science take us through the process of using steel wool and long exposure to create a fire rain photo.
