If You See A Woman Carrying This Small Black Device, This Is What It Means

If You See A Woman Carrying This Small Black Device, This Is What It Means

It’s the size of a half-dollar and it can save your life.

The device is called “Athena” and it’s the brainchild of some inventors who are now crowdfunding to take their invention to market.

1

Here’s how it works:

If a person being attacked presses the button on “Athena,” it sends out an alarm the company boasts is “louder than a freight train,” while also transmitting an SOS signal that goes out to the cell phones of friends and family.

The signal then pinpoints your location and suggests the recipients of the message contact police.

2

The company behind the invention, Roar For Good, has already raised more than 200% of its $40,000 crowdfunding goal.

3

The recessed button prevents accidental triggering, and it must be held for three seconds

The inventors say the device is empowering without having to carry a weapon:

“Women should not need to alter their lifestyle, modify their behavior, or carry self-defense devices to protect themselves. Our goal is to help create a society where that is a reality.”

Awesome Technology: 3D Sugar Printers

Awesome Technology: 3D Sugar Printers

Here’s yet another sign that we are living in the future: 3D Systems has come out with a new line of 3D Printers that can literally print custom shapes using sugar as a medium. This means no more boring sugar cubes – you can now have sugar in complex polyhedra, concave anti-prisms, infinity loops, and other fun Archimedean solids.

Everything you see on this page was made with a 3D Printer…

3d-printed-sugar-01

… using nothing but sugar!

3d-printed-sugar-02

Being just sugar, it’s completely edible…

3d-printed-sugar-03

But it would almost be a shame to eat these creations!

3d-printed-sugar-21

They can also be dissolved in coffee or tea…

3d-printed-sugar-06

… or just placed on display in an art gallery!

3d-printed-sugar-05

The makers of this machine are marketing it as the “must-have companion for the professional baker, cake master, and high-end event and restaurateur.” Once these 3D Sugar Printers become affordable for the average consumer, I plan on getting one for my kitchen. But I wonder… do they make 3D Printed cavity fillings to go with it? 🙂

You Can Use A TV Screen As The Backdrop For Your Photo Shoots

You Can Use A TV Screen As The Backdrop For Your Photo Shoots

I have been a professional photographer for 5 years now. When I started Eupidere, a brand of premium leather straps, we knew that the process of imaging the products will not be an issue for me. And in fact, it is such an enjoyable work!

With Christmas just around the corner I needed to quickly take a Christmas image, a sort of a Christmas postcard for social media. I looked around my apartment and saw a flat screen TV and a decorated Christmas tree with an elf hanging of a branch. I’ve put a camera, strap and the elf, on a table in front of the flat screen, which displayed the background. The snowpiles in the foreground are just two pieces of paper. The whole scene has been lit with a hot shoe mounted flash, bounced of a wall to the right. Adjusting f-stop and exposure time I could control balance of flash light vs. continuous light of the screen. The whole process of setting up the scene and shooting took me around 10 minutes.

I used that technique before while shooting a wedding. I thought of taking an image of a ring. I put in on a wine glass, flipped upside down. All the color in the image comes from a screen in the background.

How Addiction To Technology Is Taking Over Our Lives In Illustrations By Jean Jullien

French illustrator Jean Jullien draws witty illustrations that point out our absurd addictions to technology, social media and our smartphones. The artist is famous for mocking our obsession, which cuts us off from the real life, leaving us alienated and lonely.

Besides his satire, Jullien also uses social networks as a political platform. He is widely known for creating the “Peace for Paris” symbol which has become a worldwide sign of solidarity with France after the Paris attacks.

The Truth Behind Instagram Photos

The Truth Behind Instagram Photos

Every day, thousands of people on Instagram snap pictures meant to invent a new identity for themselves. That is the message behind this wonderful photo series by Chompoo Baritone, a photographer in Bangkok, Thailand who shows just how fake Instagram photos can be.

Numerous artists, like the anonymous photographer behind Hipster Barbie, have criticized the way people use Instagram to make their lives seem more amazing than they are and to set unrealistic standards for their followers. Careful cropping and filtering can make mundane situations seem extraordinary. Tilda Lindam, a model with an excellent sense of humor, also emphasized the vanity inherent in creating photos like those that Baritone also spoofs.

Baritone studied photography at King Mongkut’s Institute of Technology Ladkrabang in Thailand, so we hope this isn’t the last brilliant social commentary project that she’s got up her sleeve!
