Heat Gun in the Kitchen

This is a neat idea I think I read about somewhere.   I bought a heat gun, usually used for home improvement projects, and discovered it heats up to 1000 degrees F.  So far, I’ve used it to crisp chicken skin, melt chocolate, toast bread, and make single-serving bacon-wrapped figs.  Hope it inspires some out-of-the-box cooking.

009 - Cousin

Wow, this is weird, but cool!

“In the “Genetic Portraits” photo series, Canadian photographer Ulric Collette combines the portraits of two members of the same family into one half-and-half composite in order to illustrate the family’s visual similarities. My Modern Metropolis interviewed Collete about the ongoing project.

Evolution of Games – Making Of


awesome!
“This making of the “Evolution of Games” is an impressive, coordinated and directed masterpiece, and proof that not everything is done inside of a computer.
It’s fun to see the piece come to life while watching the finished piece in the same window. Hooray for handiwork. ”

EG Conference 5: Jonathan Trappe

Jonathan R. Trappe is a pilot of an unusual aircraft: literally a towering cluster of toy balloons. Didn’t you have this dream, as a child? Just holding onto a cluster of balloons, and floating off into open space? Trappe flies exactly this fantasy aircraft, in manned flight, through open skies.”
