Good Movies as Old Books: 100 Films Reimagined as Vintage Book Covers

At one time paperback books were thought of as trash, a term that described their perceived artistic and cultural level, production value, and utter disposability. This changed in the mid-20th century, when certain paperback publishers (Doubleday Anchor, for example, who hired Edward Gorey to design their covers in the 1950s) made a push for respectability. It worked so well that the signature aesthetics they developed still, nearly a lifetime later, pique our interest more readily than those o...

A New Approach to Drone Delivery: Lower Packages From a Wire

While Amazon is constantly evolving the designs of their own delivery drones, Walmart is going with a plug-and-play solution from a company called Flytrex. And watching their demo video, you'll notice something unusual about the last-mile delivery method:As you saw, Flytrex's drones hover 80 feet above the target, then slowly lower the package using a winch. "This ensures a quiet and secure delivery," the company writes.While this solves the problem of the drone's exposed rotor blades getting ne...

Turn Stop-Motion Footage Into Smooth Video Using AI Frame Interpolation

YouTuber LegoEddy, who creates stop-motion animation shorts with LEGOs, typically shoots at 15 frames per second. That's fifteen set-ups for each second of footage. More fanatical stop-motion animators will go for 60 f.p.s., which is why it can take them years to complete a short that runs for mere minutes.After learning about video frame interpolation, an AI-based technology that renders and fills in the differences between two shots, LegoEddy wondered if it could be applied to stop-motion anim...

The Joy of Watching Old, Damaged Things Get Restored: Why the World is Captivated by Restoration Videos

The internet has given us a few new ways to watch things, but many more new things to watch. It's not just that we now tune in to our favorite shows online rather than on television, but that our "favorite shows" have assumed forms we couldn't have imagined before. Thirty years ago, if you'd gone to a TV network and pitched a program consisting of nothing but the process of antique restoration — no music, no narration, no story, and certainly no stars — you'd have been told nobody wanted...

Four Classic Prince Songs Re-Imagined as Pulp Fiction Covers: When Doves Cry, Little Red Corvette & More

There’s a book-lined Knowledge Room in the late Prince Rogers Nelson’s Paisley Park, but the Prince-inspired faux-books that artist Todd Alcott imagines are probably better suited to the estate's purple-lit Relaxation Room. The Knowledge Room was conceived of as a library where the world’s most famous convert to Jehovah’s Witnesses could delve into religious literature, reflect on the meaning of life, and study the Bible deep into the night. Alcott’s covers harken to an earlier stage in Prince’...
