Since there’s a compilation post or two going around, I figure’d I’d make one myself of just my personal favorites from the project- you know, in hopes that it will circulate and replace some of the illos that are hard for me to look at ;)
Siblings Miila and Wyn sharing tea together (they have the same mother). I wanted to try a different color palette and the outcome was much murkier than I intended. It was a nice experiment nevertheless, just like Wyn’s home brewed tea.
The garden or back-yard is one of the best places in a home for the home-owner to express their creative side. Why surround all those beautiful plants with an ugly path when you can create a creative stone garden path that looks like a work of art?

After seeing the dramatic results from the Ice Bucket Challenge, Indian journalist Manju Latha Kalanidhi was compelled to start something similar, but with an Indian slant. “I felt like doing something more locally tangible.

TURNS out two heads really are better than one. Two people have successfully steered a virtual spacecraft by combining the power of their thoughts - and their efforts were far more accurate than one person acting alone. One day groups of people hooked up to brain-computer interfaces (BCIs) might work together to control complex robotic and telepresence systems, maybe even in space.
