The production of the visual effects for Game of Thrones began in November 2011 and involved nine of the world’s twelve Pixomondo studios with a total of 305 digital artists. A separate department with a focus on Matte Painting has been created in Stuttgart, where 10 Matte Painting Artists from around the world who had specialized in castles and medieval scenes have come together.

Arduino Powered Web Controlled LED Info Ticker
https://blog.adafruit.com/2015/05/25/arduino-powered-web-controlled-led-info-ticker/

As New Yorkers, we truly appreciate this project from adamwatters that exhibits transportation times on a groovy led display!

This project was a collaboration with my roommate, friend, and fellow hacker rishi2. Living in New York, we both use public transportation daily, so we thought it would be cool to have a ticker to display bus and subway times from the internet. This is the result.

Artur Bordalo Sculpts Colorful 3D Animal Murals Out Of Recycled Trash On City Streets #ArtTuesday
https://blog.adafruit.com/2015/05/26/artur-bordalo-sculpts-colorful-3d-animal-murals-out-of-recycled-trash-on-city-streets-arttuesday/

Via Beautiful/Decay.

Artur Bordalo (aka Bordalo II) is a street artist who has created a series of wall-sized animal murals using paint and clever reconfigurations of recycled trash. Among his “found” materials are scrap metal, tires, tubing, and crushed bumpers — anything that has been produced, used, and thrown away to last an eternity in the landfill. Stunningly, Bordalo has turned such tarnished objects into delicate feathers, soft fur, and complex exoskeletons, paying a bold homage to the animals he represents. In a clever blend of 2D and 3D art, the creations emerge from the walls like brilliant optical illusions, demanding our attention and curiosity

LED Rubik’s Cube With Arduino
https://blog.adafruit.com/2015/05/25/led-rubiks-cube-with-arduino/

Beautiful concept and build from David Sharfi on instructables!

In this instructable I’ll show you how you can build your own LED Rubik’s cube. This project was done for an introductory electronics course at Pomona College. Groups were given approximately two months to complete a project of their choosing, the only requirement being that the project rely on electronics built by the students.
