Today, the Supreme Court ruled that the U.S. Constitution requires states to license and recognize same-sex marriages, making marriage equality officially the law of the land. You can read the decision here. The court did not agree to resolve the issue for the rest of the nation until January, in cases filed by gay and lesbian couples in Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio and Tennessee. The court heard extended arguments in April, and the justices seemed sharply divided over what the Constitution has to say about same-sex marriage. “No union is more profound than marriage, for it embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice, and family,” Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote for the majority. He continued: “It would misunderstand these men and women to say they disrespect the idea of marriage,” Justice Kennedy said of the couples challenging state bans on same-sex marriage. “Their plea is that they do respect it, respect…Continue Reading
Micah Milner, better known as @micahnotfound, creates colourful and simply stunning art for Instagram – and he’s found a way to turn his entire feed into one gorgeous scrolling canvas. The amazing thing is each image lines up with the images surrounding it, like every photo is a piece of the puzzle. And, as you scroll down the profile, you’ll notice it’s like a timeline of pop culture. The most recent images nod to the NBA finals and Jurassic World, then comes the Full House reboot, then a mash-up of the Academy Awards. “The first 70 posts or so were a test of sorts,” he explains. “I did them all at the same time just to see what type of reaction it would get. Since then I have put more thought into the concept of the feed as whole.” So the whole “pop art” vibe you’re picking up from his…Continue Reading
Back in 2009, Russian design house Art Lebedev introduced the Transparentius concept for improving road safety. The idea was a very simple and basic one; put a camera on the front of a large truck and display the video to some screens on the back, enabling people behind the truck to basically see through it so they can make judgement to see if it’s okay to overtake. 6 years later, Samsung have had the exact same idea, and have created some photo-type trucks. So, how does it work? Using their screens, the Korean company have combined four displays together, to create a big screen that has been put on the back of a normal looking truck that displays video feed from a camera on the front, wirelessly. These trucks also have a Night Vision Mode, which enables the truck drives to use the trucks all day and provides 24 hour…Continue Reading
