Lightt is a fun, new way to see and share life, as it happens:

My friends Olivier and Sander mentioned Lightt to me recently…

It’s easy to capture and share what’s happening around you with Lightt. With one tap, you grab 10 seconds of time in a burst of pictures. They call this a “highlight.” Your highlights upload instantly and connect in a seamless stream of beautiful moving pictures. Watch your highlights, and the highlights shared by your friends, play back faster than life, like the speed of your memory.

Do visit their site and do scroll down!

Sooo mesmerizing! How science becomes art. One of the most beautiful clips you’ll see in a long time!

Video achived by “stacking” image sequences provided by NASA from the Crew at International Space Station:

Stacks make interesting patterns visible, for example lightning corridors within clouds.

One can also sometimes recognize satellite tracks and meteors – patterns that are not amongst the main startrails.

Update: How @O7IVIER shot me and why @Hipstamatic is … wayward:

My friend Olivier from Cloudfactory shoots black and white snapshots on a daily base. It’s a style of mobile photography that differs from other forms of digital photography in that images are shot and processed on his iOS device. He calls it iPhoneography. He uses the Hipstamatic app with the Nike Freepak. That one was only available for a limited time and won’t return to their Hipstamart. Asshole Hipsters (Hipstamatic, not Olivier!).

Here’s a link to Olivier’s blog: http://ollysdiary.tumblr.com

Update: And this is a strange one! All of a sudden I got the Nike Freepak! I don’t know how, it just downloaded with my download of the Rock The Vote Freepak… STRANGE!

But: Thanks anyway, you wayward Hipsters!

Airbrushing to SUBTRACT weight is bad enough, but THIS?!?

This is 20-year-old supermodel Karlie Kloss. Those were her ribs, before the October issue of international fashion magazine Numéro Photoshopped them out.

According to Celebuzz, this is not the first time Kloss’ thin frame has caused controversy. Last December, Vogue Italia had to remove photos of the model from their site after people copied them onto their pro-anorexia websites. The original photo for Numéro, taken by Greg Kadel, shows Kloss’ jutting ribs, sternum, and collar bones.

Transform your digital iPhone images into real instant photographs:

To help combat digital fatigue in this day and age, The Impossible Project teamed up with industrial designer Professor Achim Heine (who designed the Leica Digilux 1 in 2002) to create a device that can transform your digital iPhone photos into analog instant Polaroids. The ‘Impossible Instant Lab’ is an instant camera that captures images from the iPhone’s display to develop a tangible, physical Polaroid-version of the photograph. It uses only the light from your phone’s display to expose the film, which then gets processed and developed by chemicals. All users have to do is to select an image from the ‘Instant Lab app’ on their iPhone, place their iPhone in the cradle of the device, slide the shutter on the base open, wait for the exposure to finish, close the shutter, and push the button for the Polaroid. The device works with existing and future iPhones, and is compatible with instant films for the Polaroid 600 and SX 70. The Impossible Instant Lab transfers the tangible analog values of photography into the digital age—to invoke nostalgia. Currently, it is seeking funding on Kickstarter.

Thanks, Sander!

Candice Milon put together a collection of outfits from iconic films, how many can you identify?

Candice Milon carefully folded and laid out the most well-known outfits in film history against colourful backdrops. Most of the recreated ensembles are instantly recognizable, but a few of them actually take a second to figure out.
