Let there be light

//na// Hitting Opt-Shift-Y*, switching to Luminosity:

  • Rock and Royal makes crazy bespoke lighting–chandeliers & mosaics as skulls, pistols, globes–you name it. [Via]
  • The folks at the Baltimore Museum of Industry really like light bulbs.  I mean, they really like ‘em–to the tune of collecting more than 50,000 historic bulbs. Catherine Wagner spent two years in residence there, photographing "A Narrative History of the Light Bulb."  Here’s a small gallery of her images. [Via]
  • Enjoy wearing clothes, but wish they consumed more natural resources?  Try Lumigram’s luminous clothing. [Via]
  • The crew at Universal Everything created a "software-based realtime wind tunnel" to make bits of light silhouette the new Audi TT. [Via]

* In a blog full of obscure nerdery bits, this is quite possibly the most obscure and nerdy thing I’ve yet said–quite an accomplishment, don’t you think?

    So the majority of Photoshop customers fully appreciate the nerdery, why not say Alt Shift Y?
    [Ah, but doesn’t the Mac being a (somewhat) smaller set of users mean that Opt is even that much more obscure & nerdy? –J.]
