We don’t know why, but Legos were one of the best toys ever growing up. Maybe that’s why seeing them used for all kinds of crazy things when you get older, from video games to movies (“Everything is awesome!” 🙂 ), only brings a smile to our faces. And this is no exception. Because have you ever wondered a) What the quintessential scene of your state is?… and b) What it would look like made of Legos? Well we have the answer. Enjoy!

3D TVs and movies really seem to be a thing these days, but wouldn’t it be cool if you could get the same effect without using those chunky 3D glasses? These animated pictures below demonstrate how just by adding two white lines through a flat imagine, you get that 3D effect we all love so much. Here are 12 samples of this cool 3D effect in action, using only a couple of vertical white lines and some background defocus.
Jensen Ackles in ‘Supernatural’.
Freddy Krueger really comes to life.
David Tennant as the 10th Doctor in ‘Doctor Who’.
Aww, it’s almost like I can reach out and pet this little puppy.
An exploding scene from ‘The Avengers’.
No Scrat (from the ‘Ice Age’ movies), there are no acorns to be found here.
The quick brown dog jumps over the lazy white lines.
Eek! I won’t be sleeping tonight knowing that thing is out to get me.
I ducked as Captain America’s shield flew towards me.
Benedict Cumberbatch in ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’.
This begs the question, if I paint two lines on my glasses will I see the world in extra-3D? Source: wikitree

It has been discovered that the average American watches television about 5 hours a day. That’s a lot of programming being consumed and that number doesn’t even include how many hours of movies we see in theaters or in our own homes. Every day we are being entertained, but every day we are being lied to (but not in a harmful way). Most people would never catch how it’s being done. Special effects and CGI (computer generated imagery) is a useful tool in the entertainment industry. Over the years, the techniques have improved. Now, when most television shows or movies use CGI, the viewers can’t even tell what’s real and what’s not… HINT: Most of it’s not.

A cinemagraph is a special kind of digitally altered photograph that uses both stills and animation. In one frame, a motion will loop and the remainder of the photograph will stay still, creating a mind-boggling and beautiful effect. Artists Jamie Beck and Kevin Burg have created some of the most stunning cinemagraphs we have ever seen. Their most recent set shows you what New York City would look like through a pair of Armani glasses… and the effect is incredible.
When out of frame (literally) the world is a blur.
But, as soon as the focus movies in front of the glasses, the world becomes crisp.
If you wear glasses, then you know just how accurate these cinemagraphs are.
Using these spectacles in a cinemagraph is a brilliant idea.
We’ve never seen NYC like this before.
I love these NYC cinemagraphs, but to be honest, Jamie and Kevin’s best work is THIS. Source: Cinemagraphs / Jamie Beck & Kevin Burg If you love these unique photos, click below to share them with friends.

I used to love the “idea” of dominoes. I’d set up a handful, and watch them magically knock each other down, succumbing the gravity. I even liked to do little tricks, whether trying to go down some stairs, or land one on my sleeping dog 😉 But I lacked the patience to make them bigger, and better. And I especially couldn’t convince my parents to buy hundreds of them. So when I saw what this guy did with not hundreds, but tens of thousands of dominoes, you can imagine how I felt. “He lived my dream!” Oh well, he truly is “king of the dominoes!”
A YouTuber named Hevesh5, a professional domino artist and aspiring filmmaker, designs and builds intricate domino setups and chain reactions for your entertainment and for commercial projects.
He started building dominoes in 2009, and owns over 32,000 dominoes. Today, he creates tons of domino videos for our entertainment.
Check out the full video below:
If that doesn’t amaze, or even hypnotize you, I don’t know what will. Now where’s the nearest toy store… it’s time to bother the dog again 🙂 Source: YouTube Share with others below if you want them to enjoy as much as you did!

Your parents probably told you not to play with your food. That’s sound advice for most people (especially if you’d like to eat in public without drawing stares). Thankfully, artist and photographer Sarah Rosado didn’t listen to her parents when they told her that food wasn’t meant to be played with. Instead of leaving her breakfast alone, she decided to honor some of her favorite celebrities by creating cereal portraits of them. You might not believe just now impressive these are.
This series is called “Celebrity Cereal Portrait.”
Sarah was inspired one morning while she was listening to music and eating breakfast.
Each of these detailed portraits takes about 5 hours to make.
First, she sketches out the celebrity.
Then, she crushes the cornflakes into various shapes and sizes.
She uses a pin to carefully shape the smaller areas, like the nose and mouth.
There’s a new breakfast-themed art in town.
Sarah is a self-taught artist that has sought to challenge herself.
This cereal art is just another avenue that she can conquer.
If you’d like to see more of this New York artist’s work, check out her web page. Or, you can follow her on Instagram. She does so much more than just playing with her food (but that has to be my favorite project).

You know the feeling when you’re watching a movie and you desperately wish you could jump through the screen and join in the fun? Well, while we wait on scientists to make that a thing (c’mon already, scientists!), French photographer François Dourlen uses his iPhone to do the opposite: blending movies into our real world. Dourlen somehow manages to find the perfeect location for each famous frame, bringing the movie magic to life. So cool!
