Photographer Fabian Oefner took these nebula pictures in a dark room, no telescope (or even sky) necessary. Instead of some exotic far-away nebulae, you're looking at a combined long-exposure image of Oefner waving around one of those '90s-era fiber lamp things.
You don't need to be a photography nut to appreciate animated GIFs. Unlike Jamie Beck's, RRRRRRRROLL's GIFs focus on one theme: a girl and her objects rotating around a single axis in a way that may just make your head explode. Okay, maybe we made that last part up, but these GIFs can only leave you either completely blown away or reaching for the aspirin. (Note: The above image there is static — the ones you're looking for are down below in our gallery. Click to get this moving image party started!)
Iron Man 3 isn't scheduled for a release until 2013, but that doesn't mean Marvel can't tease us with Tony Stark's new suit of armor. Noticeably different from previous outings is that the new Iron Man suit is trimmed with more gold than red.
We tend to only hear about drones when one has taken out a target of some sort, so hopefully we'll be hearing more about this concept underwater drone whose target is ocean garbage. Its mission is to seek out and collect the copious amounts of trash — plastic and otherwise — that causes a threat to the ocean environment.
Gearbox Software is hard at work making sure that everything in Borderlands 2 will be bigger, crazier and boomier than what the original game offered. The team could have just included exploding bullets (which they did) and called it a day, but instead they're overhauling a lot of the core game mechanics. While veterans of the original will be in familiar territory, we got to see how Borderlands 2 will significantly evolve the amount of customization and control a player has over a character. That means new looks to make your Vault Hunter feel unique, skills that are more meaningful than a bump in stats and lots, lots more. We were also given a tour of Sanctuary, a hub city that will give players a dynamic home base to return to. Guiding us through it all was Gearbox producer Randy Varnell, who was just as happy to walk us through some new skills, locations and character customization options as he was to teach us the right way to free an enraged dwarf chained to an overgrown mutant's shield. Yep, you guessed it: it involves bullets.
Star Wars is a patchwork of historical cues and myths from around the world. Fantasy artist Clinton Felker has explored this concept by creating a series of colorful works that transport characters from the Star Warsiverse into a neon-drenched feudal Japan.
Picture your favorite sci-fi movie. Got it in your memory? Now, imagine a scene from it built with Lego. Then, imagine the same scene built in Lego form. Finally, toss the Lego creation under a shrink gun. These cute as hell micro dioramas of famous sci-fi movie scenes are what you'd probably end up with.
Here at DVICE, we've made an executive decision that it's not The Future until everything, everything can fly. Flying cars? Sure. Flying people? Totally. Flying washing machines? It simply won't be the The Future without them.
Does your fish live in a bowl or a rectangular tank? Has he or she been looking a little depressed lately? Do you even know whether your fish is a he or a she? Look, fish are people too, and they deserve more than just some rocks, a few fake plants, and a treasure chest that intermittently pukes bubbles. Take a look at this gallery of 27 (or so) geeky, weird, and occasionally dangerous fish tanks and let them inspire you to upgrade the digs of your fishy little friends.
Japanese installation artist Motoi Yamamoto has made a name for himself on the international art scene by crafting gigantic, intricately detailed works from an original medium: salt.
