Fibonacci Zoetrope Sculptures

http://i.vimeocdn.com/video/502983008_295x166.jpg

Posted this in the Vid of the day, but it deserves its own thread. From the description:

These are 3-D printed sculptures designed to animate when spun under a strobe light. The placement of the appendages is determined by the same method nature uses in pinecones and sunflowers. The rotation speed is synchronized to the strobe so that one flash occurs every time the sculpture turns 137.5º—the golden angle. If you count the number of spirals on any of these sculptures you will find that they are always Fibonacci numbers.
For this video, rather than using a strobe, the camera was set to a very short shutter speed (1/4000 sec) in order to freeze the spinning sculpture.

pantone preview in illy

I'm trying to preview Pantone 337U in illustrator. The file is already created and previews fine but if I go into color books and choose Pantone+Solid Uncoated 337U it doesn't show as a bright rgb color. It shows as a flat cmyk color.

I've tried pasting it into both rgb and cmyk files and the same thing happens.

Any clues on how to keep it looking like an rgb color? I need to shift this color slightly and need to see what it looks like digitally.

Show Grids Plugin?

Know of any sites or browser plugins that reveal the grid structure of websites?

For instance, if toggled the plugin would show the native grid overlaid on the live site:

chrome gif issue

Chrome has started to lag indefinitely whenever there's more than a couple of animated gifs on a page.

Was going to mention in the gif thread but I can't fucking use it. Anyone found a solution? Have tried messing with plugins, with no joy.

Andy Murray new logo

What do we think of this?
It apparently combines his initials a and m with 77 as he's the first brit to win at wimbledon in 77 years.
There's been comments made comparing it to nazi SS iconography etc

I think this might be one of the best film I've seen in the past few years. What did you think?

News Websites

What are the best (good) news websites around thr World?

And when I say best, i'm talking about the quality of the reporting BUT also the quality of the website itself.

I like http://www.liberation.fr (France), http://www.thedailybeast.com (USA), http://mashable.com (USA), http://www.buzzfeed.com/news (USA), http://lapresse.ca (Quebec)

I wish the BBC news website would look better.

Lumix DMC-CM1

http://assets7.thrillist.com/v1/image/1391792/size/tl-horizontal_main.jpg

Its 1-inch, 20-megapixel sensor is much, much bigger than your iPhone 6's and the Nokia Lumia 1020's—plus, it sits behind Leica optics. The device shoots in RAW if you want it to, and has the ability to capture 4K video. Besides its awesome specs as a camera, it functions as a slim, normal phone when it's in your pocket, giving you fast LTE and the same size screen as an iPhone 5S. It's clearly erring on the camera side of things, but when it drops in the States it'll look like a must-have for the on-the-go photographer.

It's currently available in the UK in small quantities and should go on sale in the US soon for $999.

You just found a magic lamp

No, I'm not fuckn with you,
you honestly just found a lamp with a sticker that says "Magik", you rub it, smoke comes out,

and a goddamm genie pops out.

He says:
Oi Master, I'm only a lesser genie in the genie realm, I can sadly only grant you one wish m8.

You can resuscitate one person,
any person, from any timeline,
chose wisely,

who do you bring back?
