Last month, an incredible photograph of a bear examining and seemingly using a tripod-mounted camera in southeastern British Columbia went viral. For a wildlife photographer, whose goal is to capture animals up close and personal, an epic shot like this can be a once in a lifetime opportunity. But how exactly was a photograph like this taken? Especially when the bear appears to be in charge of the camera? Well, earlier this month wildlife photographers Dianne Ethier, Heidi Henke, and Jim Lawrence (the

Snorkeling Couple Takes Us Underwater to Swim With Humpback Whales (GoPro Video)

Ever wonder what it would be like to snorkel up close and personal with a humpback whale? Well, snorkelers Cecil and Mallory Johnson recently teamed up with GoPro to do just that. Humpback whales often live near coastlines and feed mainly on plankton, krill (a small crustacean closely related to shrimp) and small fish. An average-sized humpback consumes anywhere from 2,000-3,000 pounds of food per day during feeding season! Humpbacks are also known for their incredible ability to produce “whale calls”, sequences of moans, cries and

New Algorithm Adds Sound to Silent Video By Observing the Tiny Vibrations of Objects (Video)

Researchers at MIT (in conjunction with Microsoft and Adobe) have created an algorithm with a truly impressive function: adding sound to audio-less videos. The algorithm has the ability to observe and analyze countless tiny micro-vibrations and then determine what type of sound must have made them. These vibrations are almost imperceptible – as small as one thousandth of a pixel in some cases. Abe Davis, a graduate student in electrical engineering and computer science at MIT, is first author on a new paper discussing

Watch As A Wall of Snow Hits Buffalo, NY (Time-Lapse Videos)

Tuesday morning was the coldest November morning in the United States since 1976, with more than 85% of the surface area of the contiguous 48 states experiencing below-freezing temperatures. According to Dr. Ryan Maue at WeatherBell models… “ Compared to normal, temperatures over the past several days have dropped off a cliff—to 10°C below climate normal—more anomalous than even during the Polar Vortex of early January 2014. November is shaping up to be a colder-than-normal month by a lot.” According to

Daan Roosegaarde is a Dutch artist and innovator. According to his website, Daan… “…is internationally known for creating social designs that explore the relation between people, technology and space. ”   His most recent masterpiece is a kilometer-long bike path in Barbant, the Dutch county where Van Gogh was born and raised. At night, the path lights up with patterns based on Van Gogh’s world famous “Starry Night” painting, with the help of glow-in-the-dark technology and LED lights. According to Dezeen,

This GIF Shows The Inside of the Human Body, From Head to Toe (GIF and Video)

Back in the early 90s, scientists from the U.S. National Library of Medicine came up with a bold idea: imaging the entire human body, from top to bottom, in cross-sectional segments only a millimeter thick. They called the endeavor The Visible Human Project. Two cadavers, one male and one female, were encased in gelatin and then frozen into ice blocks, at frigid temperature of -160 degrees Fahrenheit (-71 degrees Celsius). Then, a sophisticated cryogenic microtome (basically a very finely-tuned deli slicer in a

Iceland’s Bardarbunga Volcano Has Created A River of Lava Over 40 Miles Long

The Bardarbunga volcano eruption is into its second month, and it shows no signs of quitting. Recently, the warning level was raised from orange to red, the highest level. Over the course of the eruption, which started during the last week of August, thousands of people near the northern portion of the volcano have been forced to evacuate the area. This volcano is unique: it spans 27 miles and is buried beneath 1300 feet of ice. Over time, Bardarbunga has created exit

Did You Know… The World’s Narrowest House Is Only 4 Feet Across (Video)

Five years ago, Polish architect Jakub Szczesny was walking through the old Jewish ghetto in Warsaw when he passed what he described as an “appealing cushion of air” coming from a space between two larger buildings. One of the buildings was an old apartment building from before World War II, the other an 11-story post-war co-op. “I fell in love with a space between two buildings from different periods. I decided to make a link,” said Szczesny. So the Polish architect, who
