YouTuber Haberdashery works for a pizza restaurant, and decided to experiment with his GoPro camera. He attached the camera to the pizza pan extractor device. The resulting video is a mesmerizing and yummy piece of art.
So, who’s hungry?
When The Matrix debuted back in 1999, the stunning visuals–commonly referred to as ‘bullet time‘ special effects–blew the world away. Their state of the art camera techniques have since been copied, parodied, and spoofed countless times by Hollywood.
But for years, only the big studios with even bigger budgets could create such dazzling images. Now that technology is only accelerating at ever greater speeds, small time artists and producers can replicate the effects.
Just take Marc Donahue, who created stunning ‘bullet time’ visuals with his homemade array of GoPro cameras. The shutter speeds aren’t perfectly synced, but that only results in even more interesting visuals.
NASA Goddard has gone viral with this stunning artist interpretation of what Mars might have looked like four billion years ago.
At one point when the atmosphere was still thick and warm, scientists believe there was water on Mars– the most important ingredient for life.

John Dee is a mysterious and controversial figure in the history of science. He was a Welsh polymath who pioneered areas of mathematics and science during the16th century soap-opera of the Tudor dynasty. But, amid his groundbreaking studies of geometry and astronomy, Dees work is laced with ideas of the occult, angels, demonsand the supernatural.
UsingX-ray analysis on a famous painting of DeebyVictorian artist Henry Gillard Glindoni (below), researchers have eerily revealed thetwo sides of the 16th-century scholar.
The analysis looked beneath the superficial layer of paint and revealed that the painting, which shows Dee performing for Queen Elizabeth I, originally depicted him standing in a circle of human skulls.

The X-ray imaging was commissioned for a free event at the Royal College of Physicians that will run from January 18 to July 29, 2016, at the Royal College of Physicians nearRegent’s Park, London. The exhibition will featurepaintings of Dee, along with a first-time look at his hand-writtenmathematical, astronomicaland alchemical texts.
Speaking to the Guardian, the exhibitions curator Katie Birkwood said: He is one of Tudor Englands most interesting and enigmatic figures and we are exploring that without coming down with a view on whether he is a scholar, courtier or magician. He is all of those and more.
Why exactly the skulls were removed from the final painting is unknown. However, Birkwood suggests it was at the request of the person who commissioned the painting, perhaps unnerved by the morbid content.
This isnt the first time that technology has been used to revealthe secret depths of artworks. Just last month, researchers used a technique called Layer Amplification Method (LAM) to reveal a hidden portrait behind Leonardo da Vincis Mona Lisa.
