If the Earth were 100 pixels wide, the Moon would be 3000 pixels away. Mars, at its closest, would be 428,000 pixels away. At the current state of space technology, it will take around 150 days to get to Mars.
Distance to Mars website, created by David Paliwoda & Jesse Williams, calculates the earth’s distance to Mars in a super cool way, in pixels.
Better to watch it on Chrome.

Sounds in danger of extinction? Well, it seems that there are sounds that are about to extinct, to be forgotten and lost forever, like the sound of a tape in a tape recorder, the loadind of VCRs, the symphonic startup of a Windows 95 computer, the ringing of an old Nokia mobile phone. But Brendan Chilcutt aim’s is to preserve these sounds: the sounds of old technologies and electronics equipment. In his site, the Museum of Endangered Sounds, you can hear all these sounds and remember an era before it is totally forgotten.

The Silver Screen Society created by Trevor Basset, Brandon Schaefer and Adam Hanson is a website which invite artists each month to create art based on a chosen film and present their own ‘visual’ interpretations of their favourite film.

What do designers do after they read a book? Do they discuss about it as regular bibliophiles? Do they write fun fiction as regular nerds? Nope, they each create a book cover and post it on the book cover club, for your enjoyment:

And I am not talking about good-old wii injuries. I am talking about chronic, painful, disfiguring afflictions. I am talking about Game Arthritis. About a hidden epidemic that the gaming industry wants to keep secret.
I really don’t know what I like the most about this project: the concept in itself (genius), the photos (clinically delicious) or the accompanying text (hilarious). Read for yourself: “The conformity of interfaces produces deformity. It’s a fact. Call it “the reality of the virtual”. Prolonged vicarious aggression lead to permanent physical disfiguration. […] The authorities have dismissed this hidden epidemic as “mass hysteria”. But according to some scientists – who speak under condition of anonymity fearing ostracization – these undiagnosed disorders are the psychopathology of ludic societies”
