Portrait Hand Drawn With Over 2 Million Dots

Artist Miguel Endara turned 2.1 million carefully placed dots into a portrait of Benjaman Kyle, a man who suffers from dissociative amnesia and desperately needs someone who knows him to help him put together the pieces of his past.

Miguel created the portrait to help Benjaman get a new SSN and regain some sense of normalcy, and now he's splitting the profits from his prints with Benjaman.

It's poignant pointillism for a cause, and a haunting reminder of how fragile the human mind can be.

Smartphone Analyzer Alerts User To Allergens

Sitting down to eat a meal you didn't prepare yourself can be risky when you have a food allergy, so how are you supposed to know if it's safe to eat?

UCLA's Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science may have come up with a solution in the form of an analyzer which connects to your smartphone and detects any possible allergens in your food.

Here's more:

...the two-ounce smartphone accessory relies on a test tube-based allergen test called a colorimetric assay.

Using the iTube to detect the presence of nuts, eggs, gluten, or other allergens first requires a sample to be ground up and mixed with water and an extraction solvent for a few minutes, followed by a series of other chemicals in a step-by-step process. The resulting mixture is then visually analyzed by a custom app using the smartphone's camera which can actually determine the concentration of the allergen in the food, not just whether or not it's present.

All-in-all the test takes about 20 minutes to complete with the current version of the hardware. And while its performance will certainly be improved over time, if you have dangerous food allergies that's not a terribly long time to wait if it guarantees you won't suffer a terrible reaction.

Adam Savage's Awesome No-Face Costume

(YouTube Link)

Mythbuster Adam Savage has quite a bit of experience in the special effects industry, so it follows that any costume he makes is going to be badass.

But instead of choosing something overdone like a Transformer or a gory zombie he chose to create a costume based on the character No-Face from Spirited Away, and it will leave you speechless.

The Killers Music Video Directed By Tim Burton

(YouTube Link)

Tim Burton is such a visionary director that he can even make a music video look like a mini epic, and even if you don't like the music of The Killers you should turn off the sound and watch this interesting short film unfold. It's no Frankenweenie, but it's full of Burton-esque qualities that any true Burtonian can appreciate.

Cats Vs. Printers Video Compilation

Something about printers makes cats hate them. Maybe it's all those strange noises they make, or the pieces of paper that come shooting out, or maybe cats simply aren't fans of printing at home.

Whatever the reason, the ongoing war between cats and printers makes for some hilarious video footage!

Japanese Archaeologists Discover 1,400 Year Old Warrior In Armor

The body of a remarkably well preserved warrior in full armor was discovered at Kanai Higashiura, the site known as the Japanese Pompeii, and archaeologists believe the find dates back to the 6th century.

But here's what makes this a remarkable find:

 The discovery, which is a first of its kind, is particularly remarkable in that the warrior is still wearing his lamellar suit. Though 600 armoured suits have been recovered by archaeologists over the years, none were worn by its owner.

Typically, suits like this one, what are called kozaneko or keiko, are found in tombs placed next to the owner, along with various burial goods. But this one is clearly unique.

How Dave McKean Created Multidimensional Artwork Before Photoshop

Dave McKean is a prolific artist with a very unique style which reminds many of artwork created with Photoshop.

The thing is Dave was creating these works well before software like Photoshop even existed, and the meticulous way he went about crafting his iconic comic book covers and prints is a thing of wonder. 

You can take a look at how he constructed the covers for Sandman issues 1 and 2 at the link below, they're like dioramas for comic book geeks.
