    Flashing gif, seizure warning(?) https://38.media.tumblr.com/54098583beba5e4a6215e8bc344cc532/tumblr_ncwiitJk6g1r6g9m4o1_400.gif

    Not everyone sees the same color when they stare at this spinning disk.

    The gif is called, “Benham’s disk" "is named after the English toymaker Charles Benham, who in 1895 sold a top painted with the pattern shown. When the disk is spun, arcs of pale color, called Fechner colors or pattern-induced flicker colors (PIFCs), are visible at different places on the disk. Not everyone sees the same colors."

    "The phenomenon originates from neural activity in the retina and spatial interactions in the primary visual cortex, which plays a role in encoding low-level image features, such as edges and spatiotemporal frequency components."

    I myself see a dull gold, how about you?

    In a time where magic is forbidden, a sorceress's once peaceful life is shaken by an undefeated assassin, and grudges that are rooted deeply in time.

    Set in an era where magic is forbidden, the story follows a young sorceress who, despite possessing more power than most could even dream of, could not grasp the simple peaceful life she longed for. But all this will change, whether she is ready for it or not.


    Art is fantastic and I got hooked on the first chapter. Hihgly recommended if you're into manga since it's read in the same format.

    Better than invisible art.

  • In Tokyo Ghoul [Anime Discussion]

    Gods, if only they didn't rush this, it would have been so better. Extremely disappointed in how it ended(unless they have some extra episode later). I suppose this is good advertisement for the manga though, but still pretty disappointing.

    Oh well, at least the fight scene was good.

    Hah, good distraction but it won't get me, I know you're the lady on the Fitnick advertisement.

    We are exploring new modalities of creative photography through robotics and long-exposure photography. Using a robotic arm, a light source is carried through precise movements in front of a camera. Photographic compositions are recorded as images of volumetric light. Robotic light “painting” can also be inverted: the camera is moved via the arm to create an image “painted” with environmental light. Finally, adding real-time sensor input to the moving arm and programming it to explore the physical space around objects can reveal immaterial fields like radio waves, magnetic fields, and heat flows.
