Check out the latest from the illusionist extraordinaire Brusspup. Here, he demonstrates that looks can be deceiving: The technique is called anamorphosis – the image is distorted and elongated so that it appears natural from a certain angle. Brusspup adds to the illusion by placing the photo-realistic images alongside every day objects and then using video to reveal the perspective change in real time. A very cool video. Please see it and rate it here on 12/2. After 12/2, find it in the Cool Site of the Day archive. See more of Brusspup’s illusions on his Youtube channel. Mike
An invisible, ancient source of energy surrounds us—energy that powers my Hobie Cat and energy that powered the first explorations of the world. This map shows you the delicate, real-time tracery of wind flowing over the US. See it and rate it here. After 11/28, find it in our archive .
I love stuff like this. You can learn so much from those who accomplish so much at breakneck speed. Sure, it will take a lot of time to view all these interviews but if you just chisel away 10 minutes a day it will be worth your time.

Today's Cool Site of the Day is a beautiful and scary depiction of what is going on around the planet. Founded in 2007 by James Balog, the Extreme Ice Survey (EIS) is an innovative, long-term photography project that merges art and science to give a “visual voice” to the planet’s changing ecosystems. EIS imagery preserves a visual legacy, providing a unique baseline—useful in years, decades and even centuries to come—for revealing how climate change and other human activity impacts the planet.
