Best example of Projection Mapping ever made - You won't believe your Eyes!

The "Box" is a shortfilm by Detroit-based Bot&Dolly that demonstrates the capabilities of projection-mapping on moving surfaces. Has to be the best one ever made.

Damn neat Animation about projection-mapping
The shortfilm features the IRIS, a moving robot arm, and is shot with a real camera - this is no after effects sorcery! "Box" explores the synthesis of real and digital space through projection-mapping on moving surfaces. The short film documents a live performance, captured entirely in camera. Bot & Dolly produced this work to serve as both an artistic statement and technical demonstration. It is the culmination of multiple technologies, including large scale robotics, projection mapping, and software engineering. We believe this methodology has tremendous potential to radically transform theatrical presentations, and define new genres of expression.

How go get a Bugatti Veyron / "Adder" and Maserati / Ocelot F620 in GTA V easily

Hey guys, I found an easy but also easy-to-miss way to get a Bugatti Veyron, or "Adder" hypercar in GTA V.

After the 35th Mission you are invited to a Construction Site at the letter 'D' while playing Franklin.
If you go there, you will see people standing around very nice cars, including Michael and Trevor.
Instead of advancing to them and starting the mission, just pull out a gun and start shooting at their cars, they will start to run away and leave the cars behind, unlocked.
Now you can easily take the Bugatti or Maserati standing there and park it in your personal garage (parking it at your house may cause it to disappear). Et voila, you just got yourself one of the finest and rarest cars in GTA V for free.
(Alternatively, if you want the Maserati a.k.a. Ocelot F620 instead, just start the mission and throw a sticky grenade at 'D' after you entered your vehicle. Answer the mission failed message with circle then x and you will still be in the car. Bring it to the personal garage to save it.)

Foxconn everywhere!

I've recently started working at a big Tech Company and the amount of FoxConn shit I see everyday makes me want to puke.

It's often just small stuff, yeah, but think about that - there are people in the world making those small USB jacks for a (miserable) living. Just so we can enjoy connecting our USB sticks everywhere.

P.S. I found this particular part on a business-grade thin client

What do you think about the shady downside of entertainment? Let me know in the comments!
