When I was a kid growing up back East, my parents would bring me to a place called Edaville Railroad. It's a theme park now but, back then, the main attraction was a train that went through a track in cranberry bogs.

I remember it being a lot of fun.
Well, for three days in late August, a group of artists in Germany took this idea to a whole new and incredibly impressive level. I love this so much!
Over 500 volunteers and residents in the "Bewegtes Land" art project entertained passengers with a super fun and quirky art performance, all happening along the train's nearly 19-mile route.
Watch the video to see how they surprised their moving audience along the way.
The route went from Jena to Naumburg, a quiet area in the Saale valley's countryside not known for tourists.
All I have to say is that someone really needs to do a U.S. version of this. Pretty please.

Check out Etienne’s guide to creating similar bots with Blender and a Raspberry Pi. In total the system is composed of four different […]
Not to rain on anyone’s parade, but this whimsical artist’s home featured on Barcroft TV looks as if it breaks pretty much every building code in the book.
The web is vast, and while there’s room for everyone, competition is stiff when it comes to landing on that first page of a Google search. That’s why developers aren’t afraid to spend exorbitant amounts of time and money on search engine optimization (SEO) to ensure their sites rank higher than others. However, not all […]
Many of us enjoy the aesthetic of vintage electronics, but trying to use most hardware from the 1950’s isn’t necessarily practical. This is especially true where speakers are concerned. While most of us can appreciate the old-school feel of retro speakers, they have a hard time matching the convenience and power delivered by today’s Bluetooth speakers. […]
