I'm so glad so many people are enjoying it. It's been so amazing to watch that little download counter go up and read all of the comments here.

Alma Haser’s “Cosmic Surgery” Pop-Up Book - Cool Hunting German born, UK-based artist Alma Haser’s popular, mind-bending project “Cosmic Surgery” consists of portraits that have been enhanced—and made considerably stranger—by the addition of origami shapes. Haser initially made the origami masks to use for self-portraits, attaching them to her face with elastic bands, but realized that the process of placing them on already-printed portraits and re-photographing them was a more comfortable way to get the same effect. The resulting series, which came out a couple of years ago, is thoroughly fascinating. The origami gives the portraits an almost alien feel, and the addition of multiple sets of eyes means that people start looking vaguely arachnid. And yet the pictures are beautiful and thought provoking, something that the name “Cosmic Surgery” underlines—even though the title was unintentional," Haser tells CH.

How Slack has made itself an indispensable business tool When Slack launched in February, it was hardly the first chat/messaging service aimed at corporate users. But thanks to smart product decisions, the right mix of features, and good marketing, it has become one of the fastest growing. Slack now has 285,000 users per day, up from 171,000 in August. This explosive growth allowed Slack to raise a large round of financing this month at a valuation greater than $1 billion. The 25 Best Sci-Fi Films Of The 21st Century So Far As kids, we looked ahead to the imminent 21st century and thought of a big bold, sci-fi future. The robot butler and trips to the drug store in hovercars version hasn’t yet arrived, but the first 15 years of this century have been extremely fruitful for big-screen science fiction. Sci-fi is almost as old as cinema itself —1902's Georges Méliès’ “A Trip To The Moon” is generally seen as the first example— but it became hugely popular in late 20th century filmmaking in the aftermath of “Star Wars,” if also somewhat watered down.
'Murmur' bridges physical and virtual using sound / @chevalvert @v3ga #raspberrypi Created using Raspberry Pi and openFrameworks, Murmur is a device that enables the communication between public and the projection by simulating the movement of sound waves, building a luminous bridge between the physical and the virtual. The device was designed to collect the murmurs of the public. Referred to “echo’s room”, making reference both to the audio effect achieved and to Greek mythology, it represents not only the key technique of the Murmur device, but also its magical aspect, turning sound waves into light waves. The project is a collaboration between Chevalvert, 2Roqs, Polygraphik and Splank. Project Page
