Friday Links!

Leading off this week, from the Edwin Garcia Links Machine, and what a classic: Graffiti From Pompei.

From Steven Davis, and this is quite remarkable: Android Sign Language Interpreting Glove. Also, and here they come, it's Parrot AR.Drone 2.0. One more, and it's quite interesting: Computer Vision Camo.

From J.R. Parnell, and this is one of the greatest unicycle tricks I've ever seen (watch to the end), it's Impossible Unicycle Trick.

From Tateru Nino, and this is absolutely amazing: Researchers Find that Parasitic Flies are Turning Bees Into Zombies.

 From C. Lee, an excellent three-part series about the ineffectiveness of Japanese newspapers in a journalism sense:
Stop the presses and hold the front page
Stories spiked despite journalism's mission to inform
Fukushima lays bare Japanese media's ties to top

One more, on a different subject (but near and dear to most of us): X-Com is brilliant because it's broken.

From Mark Vines, and this is a stunning bit of artistry: Goldfish Salvation.

From Sirius, and this is just fantastic: Under the ice at Lake Saarijärvi in Finland. Also, take a look at Audubon's "The Birds of America".

From Griffin Cheng, and I've always wondered about this: Is the beer-goggle effect real?.

From Jonathan Arnold, and this is a wonderful video: The Joy of Books.

Finally, from DQ Fitness Advisor Doug Walsh, an absolutely insane video: First-Person Cliff Biking.
