I love this. A unique and perfect tribute for David Bowie by Skratch Bastid.
Now with permission from Radiohead, for the first time in years Prince's incredible cover of "Creep" at Coachella in 2008 is available to watch again. Simply amazing.
and how they do it....
A collaboration between Japanese media artist Nobumichi Asai, make-up artist Hiroto Kuwahara and digital image engineer Paul Lacroix is turning faces into digital works of art. The Omote project uses projection mapping techniques to put make-up and effects onto a model's face in real-time. BBC Click's LJ Rich went behind the scenes to find out more.

This is fantastic!
"In the digital age, we increasingly use written language in place of face to face chat or phone calls. But the advantages email, chat, and text give us in speed come with limitations in communicating emotional tone. Enter emoticons and emojis. Not just a playful supplement to language, these new tools allow for complexity in tone and emotion never before possible in written language, as well as provide new opportunities for creative expression. Rapidly spreading throughout culture, emoticons and emojis fill a void in written language that few realized we so desperately needed."

Goosebumps for the most astonishing flashmob...
Rarely seen "teaser" trailer for The Empire Strikes Back featuring Ralph McQuarrie concept paintings, and no live action footage was shown. This was a real trailer shown in theaters back in 1980. Imagine a trailer for a film made now not showing any clips from the film!
In loving memory of Patrick Moore, who I have watched since I can remember watching TV. As soon as the BBC announcer said it was time for The Sky at Night, I always curled up ready to explore whatever Patrick had decided to show. I will truly miss him.
The Sky at Night looking back at the 50 years of broadcast since 1957.
In this clip, Patrick Moore talks to prof. Carlos Frenk about the 'seven wonders of the universe' discovered in the last 50 years.
"Demonstration of the Xerox Star user interface from 1982. The Lisa and Mac interfaces that would follow a couple years later are dismissed by some today as being merely a direct ripoff of Xerox's work...but in watching this it becomes apparent that Apple's UI was in fact an evolution of these concepts, not a 1:1 copy. The Star UI has little to no direct manipulation, nor any visual distinction for radio buttons or check boxes. In other places, such as networking and printing, the Star was many years ahead. The Star UI laid the foundation but it was not copied whole cloth as some will claim."
