MIT scientists have developed an amazing technology which allows users to interact with seemingly static objects in videos. Their algorithm looks for vibrations in footage to identify physical properties of the object, then manipulates a simulated version in real time.
Artist Felix Vorreiter’s unusual timepiece uses a single, long piece of string that feed through a series of pulleys. The rope is marked with dots which align to display the current time. The current clock only has 120 minutes of string, as it would take about 4000ft to cover a full day.
