NYC photog roams the country to capture 360 degree landscapes

Landscape photography goes surreal in Alternate Perspectives, a dizzying series of travel photos from New York-based Randy Scott Slavin. The photos, shot by Slavin on his sojourns around America, are each taken at a single location or landmark, then pieced together to create a 360 degree perspective in a flat image. The "stitching" technique results in a trippy stereographic projection. "While......read more

World's largest tidal power turbine unveiled in Scotland.

As a potential clean energy source, tidal power is as alluring as it is elusive. The consistent daily flux of the tides presents attractive possibilities for the production of reliable, sustainable power, but the hurdles posed by deploying large turbines in the sea are more than a little significant.
