Meet Caracals: The Cutest Cat Species

Although I am not a cat person, I can barely say no to these adorable baby caracal – a medium-sized wild cat native to Africa, the Middle East, Central Asia and India. These beautiful creatures have been religiously significant to the ancient Egyptians. They appear in their paintings, bronze figurines, whereas their sculptures were believed to guard the tombs of pharaohs. They all have long, black hair growing from the backs of their ears which makes them standout from other cats with rocking style. Although caracals are wild cats, it is said they can be easily domesticated and even kept as pets. But you need to make sure it is legal to raise in your country and don’t forget about its grown-up size (78 centimeters, 12–18 kg for male and 73 centimeters, 8–13 kg for female).

Visual Diary: Flower and Coffee

Many of us starts our days with a good cup of coffee. But I guess none of us will do what Japanese Instagrammer Sawa does – creates a beautiful work of art around the nice dose of caffeine. In her ongoing series called La Fee De Fleur, Sawa arranges fresh and dried flowers around the hot beverage in an eye-pleasing crescent shape. Then she documents her visual coffee diary by taking a photo and shares it online.

The point of La Fee De Fleur is simple but sweet – Sawa offers an optimistic sentiment, from wishing her followers a “Happy Friday” to start their weekend, as well as a “Happy new week,” on Mondays. I have to agree, these coffee diary looks beautiful. But I really wonder how she is able to get so many different flowers each day? And I do hope the coffee is still warm after all those art work.

Flatland: Visual Confusion Images by Aydın Büyüktaş

When I first looked Aydın Büyüktaş‘s work, I thought they were screencaptures from movie inception. But actually, these mind-blending works are done by Turkish photographer and digital artist Aydın Büyüktaş with the help of aerial drone.

Inspired by Edwin Abbott’s 1884 publication ‘Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions‘, Aydın used drones and 3D modelling software to produce the elaborate images. Each image requires around 18-20 aerial drone shots which are then stitched together digitally to form sweeping landscapes that curl upward without a visible horizon. You can see more of his gravity-defying work on his personal site.

Flamboyant Cuttlefish: Deadly Beauty On Ocean Floor

Ocean is such a magic place where you can find lots of unbelievable creatures. We have been talking a lot about ocean animals and be surprised by their unusual appearance or unique behavior again and again. Today, we would like to show you another amazing creature – flamboyant cuttlefish. Also known as Metasepia pfefferi, flamboyant cuttlefish is a species of cuttlefish occurring in tropical Indo-Pacific waters off northern Australia, southern New Guinea, as well as numerous islands of the Philippines, Indonesia and Malaysia.

They usually move around by ‘walking’ along the seafloor, moving the bottom of the mantle back and forth in a comical, elephant-like shuffle while undulating their fins and waving their brightly colored tentacles, just like a dancing blossom flower. But don’t be fooled by its beauty — this flashy cephalopod could be deadly.

Paris Navigating Gym: Floating Gym Powered by Human Energy

Workout is good, energy-saving is good, a floating gym powered by passengers’ workouts is good? Honestly, I don’t really think it is a good idea. Designed by Italian architects Carlo Ratti Associati, The Paris Navigating Gym is a 20-meter long fitness vessel that can host up to 45 people. The fitness area features Technogym’s ARTIS machines – a special typology of sports equipment that harnesses human energy and makes it available to further uses. By doing exercise on the ARTIS bikes and cross trainers, guests can seamlessly contribute to powering the boat, which in turn will sail along the Seine on its route through the city. The Navigating Gym will allow Parisians to inhabit the river all year long. The augmented-reality screens installed on the boat will show guests both the quantity of energy sourced from the workout, and data about the Seine’s environmental conditions, tracked in real time by sensors incorporated on the vessel.
