7 Foot Tall Gundam – RX-178 Gundam Mk-II

GundamLesko

Those this redfines cool, doesn’t everyone want a robot of their own, well Lesko decided that he wanted one and put 6-9 months of hard work putting together is Gundam MK-II. It seriously is an exact replica of the model, and this guy knows how to design his paper. That is one amazing Gundam, wouldn’t mind having it follow me around while I’m outside or flying next to me while I’m riding my bike.

Vespa In A Skate Park

The last thing I would think is anyone using a Vespa for stunting in a skate park, but Boulon from Marseille does just that with a delicate skill. The legendary bowl of Marseille with his Vespa he rides arounds corners and through the basin smoothly and getting it over just right, I would probably crash it trying to go to fast, the taping of the video is fantastic.

Krump & Ballet 360

A very interesting project with photography and video to put together this amazing work of art. Different styles of dance brought onto one playing field, I really love projects such as these and the amount of technical work that goes into it makes it seem effortless. I do not have the technical ability to pull off something such as this, I would like to develop the ability to get better, but I’m amazed at how they got it done.

“The 360 Project” is an exploration into the crossroads of photography and motion pictures. It is a study of peak dance movements, captured simultaneously by 48 cameras aligned in a circle. There are two components to “The 360 Project” – “Ballet 360” features ballerinas from Canada’s National Ballet School, “Krump 360” features dancers from Northbuck Krump. The two styles of dance represent polemic perspectives in both technique and origin – one is beauty, the other beast. The resulting images resemble a type of digital statue – a frozen, peak moment, embodying the essence of each dance form in 360 degrees.

iPod Wall

Concepts like these are really cool, putting together an animated design acting as tiled photo display on 20 iPod Touches. This would be considered an expensive animated tiled imaged but still very cool, whats great is they took the concept and programmed it to output this into 20 iPod with one controlling iPod. It’s not very hard but still not easy to design a program such as this, but I love the idea. The wood part I would be able to do but the programming is out of my league.

GulfRun 5 @ The Track

One of the best GulfRun’s yet all compressed into a few intense minutes, again my hat goes off to NegativEffect for doing such a great job with this video. The best part for me was watching some of those guys drift, the guy with the ISF took his car to the extreme and that car can really drift. The Z4M did an amazing job on the track as well, some interesting surprises there. I really had fun at the autocross but I started drifting instead of trying to get a good time. So much done in an intense few days, I can’t wait for the next one but I need to improve my driving skills to get better on the track. The Vimeo version is the same but in better quality, I tend to like Vimeo more because of the quality but here is both.

Black Ox Skadeboard

I’ve have always been a fan of Black Ox from back in the day, and while roaming the vast archives of Vimeo I stumbled upon this fantastic video. I am really amazed how people can put simple videos such as this together, I am one person who lacks the skills to do this but I do enjoy watching it. I prefer the quality of Vimeo movies to that of every other online media such youtube and dailymotion.
