Incredible high-speed cheetah footage
National Geographic and the Cincinnati Zoo teamed up to create some captivating footage:
Using a Phantom camera filming at 1200 frames per second while zooming beside a sprinting cheetah, the team captured every nuance of the cat’s movement as it reached top speeds of 60+ miles per hour.
Stick around ’til 5:40 or so to see the contraption used to drive the camera. Watching the cat pursue the stuffed target, my wife sat next to me & quietly whispered “Get it, get it, get it!” [Via Danny Smythe]
Illustration: 126 wacky gadgets of ACME Corp.
“Tornado seeds! Giant magnets! Dynamite! Rocket-powered roller skates!” writes illustrator Rob Loukotka. “I spent over 100 hours illustrating, designing, and researching this one poster.”
The fictional ACME Corporation appeared in nearly all 43 Coyote & Road Runner cartoons from 1949-1994. They make any product you can imagine. I’ve loved The ACME Corporation since I was a kid because they’re a true dream factory.
How amazing would it be if The ACME Corporation were real? That’s why I made this poster; to make our world a little crazier.
