Yamaha Motorcycle Exoskeleton

Interesting concept for a ‘wearable’ motorcycle, probably would be really fun to drive pilot although I wouldn’t expect to survive a crash in one.

Disassembled Household Appliances

Brilliant and simple idea for photography, just take apart normal kitchen appliances and arrange the pieces into a pattern.

Nollywood

Tarry King Ibizu, Uche Echa, Edeh Emmanuel Ozoemena, Ifanyi Ololo, Ifechukwude Ben, Ehiedu Kelly Nduka. Enugu, Nigeria, 2008 by Pieter Hugo

In his new body of work, Pieter Hugo explores the multilayered reality of the Nigerian film industry. Nollywood is, surprisingly, the third largest film industry in the world, releasing onto the market between 500 and 1 000 movies each year.

Nollywood produces movies on its own terms, telling stories that appeal to and reflect the lives of its public: it is a rare instance of self-representation in Africa. The continent has a rich tradition of story-telling that has been expressed abundantly through oral and written fiction, but has never been conveyed through the mass media before. Stars are local actors; plots confront the public with familiar situations of romance, comedy, witchcraft, bribery, prostitution. The narrative is overdramatic, deprived of happy endings, tragic. The aesthetic is loud, violent, excessive; nothing is said, everything is shouted.

Airbus A380 Tailcam

Nope, this isn’t wobbly video of a simulator, it is actual footage from the tailcam on the back of an A380 which is relayed back on to the passangers screens.

Fantastic!

Internet Memes

Quite an interesting timeline of the popular trends which speed around the web, I can actually track the point in time where I lost interest in them.
