I don’t know where this actually came from (click for more images), but 1) It’s a nice Photoshop job, and 2) It’s a reference to the real experiments by Soviet Dr. Sergei Bryukhonenko, who kept disembodied dog heads alive for short periods of time.
On a probably related note, I did find the source for this other puzzling image:
"Their last solemn moment, before we buried the gate and the truth with it. Pyramiden, Spitsbergen 1928".
Which probably has nothing to do with the cyborg dog, but both may be related to ARGs. Or viral campaigns. In any event, Photoshop, nice Photoshops. [via Nerdcore, Eduardo Lisboa]

A representation of an impossible scene, Escher’s Waterfall has just been made real, at least on Youtube.
But on watching the video in higher resolution, the shadows and reflections, I suspect it is yet another damn good CGI job. Damn good.

Tesla would be proud, as a century later this is a twist on the demonstrations he himself performed with his Tesla coils.
Tesla coils above which the two fellows with full conductive suits stand just to shoot lightning from their heads and hand. Science guarantees the electric current will pass through the fine metallic suit, and not the body of the brave electric guys, though in reality loose connections may tingle, or a little more than tingle. The Lords of Lightning “feel little tingles to thumping shocks inside the suit”, not to mention some ozone that must be produced.
And for what? Because this is amazingly awesome. [via New Scientist]
