GeekBytes: OMG Robotic Jellyfish Spies!! (And Other Things We Didn't Cover)
It's the end of the day out on the West Coast, which means it's time for another GeekBytes roundup. Today, check out the ultimate geeky bedding, what use a robotic jellyfish has and how a modern camera and vintage lens work pretty well together.
Let's set one thing straight: there is no such thing as a robotic jellyfish. But these robots move almost like how a real jellyfish moves. The jellyfish-like robots run on hydrogen, so they could be used for surveillance in the depths of the ocean. Its maneuverability still needs a little work, though. Check out the video below to see one in action. [via Gizmodo]
This isn't just a QR code--it's also a quilt! Mini Maker Faire organizer Jon Danforth thought that QR codes resemble patchwork quilts, so he decided to make one. The best part? The quilt actually works as a QR code. Give the picture a scan to find out where it sends you. [via Make]
Who would have thought a 93-year-old Contessa-Nettel Piccolette camera would work so beautifully with the much newer Canon 5D Mark II? Photographer Jason Bognacki decided to combine the two, and the results are pretty amazing (Instagram, eat your heart out!). Check out Jason's blog to see the results of this crazy camera combo.
