CineSkates-Camera-Sliders

Creating high quality video without what we like to call the “Blair Witch Effect” is damn near impossible unless you have crazy expensive equipment. We love the fact that the DSLR can record HD video, but we spent enough money on the rig already that we don’t want to spend another couple thousand on a steadycam setup just to record a few films. All is not lost thanks to Kickstarter and an enterprising engineer from MIT’s Media Lab. CineSkates are essentially rollerskate wheels for a GorillaPod Focus which—when combined with said GorillaPod—create a budget friendly, incredibly cool way to get fluid HD video without any stuttering or shaking.

Retro-Video-Game-Puzzle-IF2

We’ve long been obsessed with Things Organized Neatly, the Tumblr, Instagram account, and book that displays collections of items arranged in pleasing ways. It’s the reason we’re hard at work on this puzzle. When finished, the puzzle depicts a collection of retro video games and gaming systems aligned ever so perfectly. Each is made in the USA by the New York Puzzle Company and features original photography from artist Jim Golden. At 1000 pieces, it will put you to work for some time, but when you complete it you can use some puzzle glue and frame it on your wall. Out of chaos comes order, right?
