Punk legend and Boing Boing pal Bob Mould's new album Sunshine Rock is out this Friday, February 8. To tide you over, enjoy Bob's funny-'cause-it's-true music video for the track "Lost Faith."

Video Tutorial: Grand Theft Auto (GTA 5) Effect in Photoshop

In today’s video tutorial we’re going to look at creating a photo effect inspired by the loading screens and cover artwork of the Grand Theft Auto 5 (GTA) game, which feature a life-like illustration style of the characters but with a clear digitally painted appearance. Due to the nature and theme of the game, the effect works best when combined with pictures of gangsters, fast cars and scantily dressed ladies against the city streets. While the originals were likely painted from scratch, we’ll ...

The OTFB: a switchblade-inspired, machined sculpture

Machinist/sculptor Chris Bathgate (previously) has revealed his latest piece: the OTFB (out the front/out the back), a spring-loaded, switchblade-inspired piece that substitutes rotation for a sliding switch, "creating a small amount of mechanical advantage, lessening the effort on the part of the user needed to load the spring in the assembly." The piece is a prototype for a small planned run of 6-12 objects. Well, I consider this first piece to be just the working prototype. There ...

Banksy’s own video removed from his YouTube channel on “copyright grounds”

Banksy’s notorious painting shredding video caused a furore but the video that the famous artist shared of it is causing even more controversy as it was ripped off of Banksy’s own YouTube channel. Banksy is a British artist famed for doing things quite differently with an anonymous identity whose work often appears overnight in public. In October what is possibly Banksy’s most notorious piece of art, the ‘Balloon Girl‘ went up for auction at Sotheby’s in London for £1.04 million. Banksy famo...

Video profile of the creator of the Hoberman Sphere

In 1998 I profiled artist/inventor Chuck Hoberman for Wired (read it here). It was a fun article to write because Chuck is brilliant, and very nice. You have probably seen two of his most famous expanding/transforming/unfolding creations, the Hoberman Sphere and the Hoberman Switch Pitch. Recently, Wired made this video profile of Chuck. A video is a better way than an article to understand what he does.

Before Youtube nukes annotations, take one last look at these amazing, creative projects that showed how much annotations could do

On January 15th, Google will disappear all Youtube annotations, which have lots of structural problems (spammy, don't work well on mobile or big screens), but which have been a font of creative inspiration that spawned whole genres of interactive Youtube projects, from games to interactive films to branching narrative adventures to musical experiments, to collaborative art projects to deep context and annotation. XOXO co-founder Andy "Waxy" Baio has produced a roundup of some of the greate...

New high-end electric scooter with slick form and function

When my friend David Hyman is passionate about something -- whether it's digital music, online games, or audio gear -- he immerses himself in the subject entirely, completely, obsessively.

Why American history lives between the cracks

History is written by lions. But it's also recorded by lambs.In order to understand American history, we need to look at the events of the past as more prismatic than the narrative given to us in high school textbooks.Including different voices can paint a more full and vibrant portrait of America. Which is why more walks of American life can and should be storytellers. The Light of the World: A Memoir (Pulitzer Prize in Letters: Biography...
