  • Time-lapse photography can be a revelatory tool for helping us see the beauty of movement when the normal speed of time is just too slow. We get to see gigantic, Earth-sized changes as never before. Richard Gottardo's Northern Lights time-lapse is a perfect example. He spent 7 hours in Southern Alberta, recording the remarkable color changes that take place over the Rocky Mountains. I know a winter vacation to a snow-covered mountain doesn't sound incredibly ideal, but if this is something you can see in all its glory, albeit not at this speed, that's very enticing.  

    Have you seen any cool time-lapses? Tell us on Facebook, or on Twitter.

  • Finding the perfect gift to give your mother is often a daunting task. Perfume, flowers and jewelry have all been done so many times before. Two brothers in Romania, 29 and 26, figured out the best gift of all to get for their mama, the gift of memories. They recreated photos taken 20 years ago as a surprise for her 55th birthday. The pair, whose names are unknown, spent weekends over several months visiting old vacation spots around Romania to get the exact same shots as when they were kids. Before being posted to Reddit, the photos were uploaded to imgur where they have been viewed more than 80,000 times so far.

  • With seemingly only marginal increases in most pieces of technology, it's not often that you come across something that legitimately makes you say "wow." And we would've never expected to say that about a table. But leave it to the MIT Tangible Media Group at the MIT Media Lab to come up with something we've never seen before. It's called the inForm, and as Tangible explains, it can, "render 3D content physically, so users can interact with digital information in a tangible way." Basically, the table has a large network of pins, cabling, and actuators underneath, all hooked up to a computer.


    The computer takes info from a kinect camera, or from formulas for custom designs, and outputs the same shape, instantaneously, on top of the table. And the practical uses are pretty cool. The pins are so precise that they can move objects, or form custom shapes. They can even be controlled from the top.

    The MIT team says that practical uses for the contraption could be 3D-mapping, advanced CT

  • The devastating typhoon that hit the Philippines five days ago, killing thousands and displacing over 500,000 people, also separated countless families across the region. Power and phone lines are still down in much of the country, making it impossible for relatives to contact each other. One photographer is now trying to help survivors get word to their families and let them know they are alive. John Javellana from Manila is in Samar, one of the worst-hit provinces. He is posting heartbreaking images to his Facebook page, some with written details on the photo, and others with survivors holding a tablet with their names and a message. The hope is that someone will recognize the people in the photos and get word back to their relatives:

  • Last year, Guy Fieri's Times Square behemoth, Guy's American Kitchen & Bar, opened in New York City. On Nov. 13, 2012, the New York Times published food critic Pete Wells's review of the restaurant, " As Not Seen on TV, " a scathing questionnaire lobbing insults at everything from the food to the design to the service. Wells called the Awesome Pretzel Chicken Tenders "very far from awesome" and the nachos "deeply unlovable," asking, "When you hung that sign by the entrance that says, 'Welcome to Flavor Town,' were you just messing with our heads?"

    The review is as negative as any the Times has ever published, and in part because of its abundance of derogatory superlatives, it went viral. It was heavily shared on social media and written about in countless blogs, with writers alternately praising it, questioning its purpose , or critiquing it. Luckily, unlike restaurateurs without national fame, Fieri was able to respond on as big a stage as "The Today Show." He gave a couple of
