Feng Zhu Design

Feng Zhu Design The Most Awesome Box Art In The World They may be known as Studio Liverpool today, but there once was a time British developers Psygnosis were responsible for the greatest video game covers of all time. From the mid-80s to the mid-90s, the team responsible for games like Lemmings, Shadow of the Beast and Barbarian (and who would later go on to create the Wipeout series on the PlayStation) broke from the infantile and/or boring styles preferred by other companies and went for a look that was part Heavy Metal, part Moebius and all brilliant. Things began to get a little more tame as the 90s dragged on, with fantastical art going out of style and Psygnosis moving away from home computer development and towards consoles, but for just under a decade, they were kings. In honour of that, then, we present this gallery of their finest work. [images via]

shotopop Французские кошечки Французские кошечки Официальный сайт: unknown This will bug you... The indestructible micro-animals that can survive the vacuum of space - and most of them are after your blood By Eddie Wrenn Published: 12:01 GMT, 24 September 2012 | Updated: 16:48 GMT, 24 September 2012 There is only one creature known to man which can survive the ravages of deep space. It is the water bear - officially known as the tardigrade - and despite being a fraction of a millimetre in length and mostly consigned to a lazy life exploring pond moss, it is almost indestructible. You can freeze it at close to absolute zero - at minus 273C - or heat it to above 151C. Or you could keep it without water for a decade, subject it to almost any kind of pressure, or send it into the radiation-filled vacuum of space where it can survive beyond ten days without any damage. It is just one of the micro-sized and extraordinary bugs living in our back gardens - or even in our own bodies. Hi! Magnified 500x: The green fronds seen here are tiny moss leaves In this set of images, under a powerful microscope, shows them in an incredible new light. Would this make you jump?
