Homemade GoPro Camera Array Creates Stunning Matrix-Style ‘Bullet Time’ Visuals

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. 

The project was covered more in depth on FStoppers. Now, the week old video stands with over 30,000 views, and is only picking up viral momentum.

X-Rays Reveal Something Very Eerie In 16th-Century Painting Of John Dee

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.
