ted:

Adrianne Haslet-Davis dances again for the first time since the Boston terrorist attack last year. 

When the bombs went off at the Boston Marathon finish line, Adrianne Haslet-Davis lost the lower half of her left leg in the explosion. She’s a ballroom dance teacher, and she assumed she would never dance again. With most prosthetics, she wouldn’t.

But Hugh Herr, of the MIT Media Lab, wanted to find a way to help her. He created a bionic limb specifically for dancers, studying the way they move and adapting the limb to fit their motion. (He explains how he did it here.)

At TED2014, Adrianne danced for the first time since the attack, wearing the bionic limb that Hugh created for her.  

Hugh says, “It was 3.5 seconds between the bomb blasts in the Boston terrorist attack. In 3.5 seconds, the criminals and cowards took Adrianne off the dance floor. In 200 days, we put her back. We will not be intimidated, brought down, diminished, conquered or stopped by acts of violence.”

Amen to that, Hugh.

HUGE cache of drawing and art related book PDF files.

There’s literally hundreds of great drawing, manga, comic, painting, sculpting, and art related books on this site. The website language is in Russian but many of the books are in their native language. Hopefully this is as helpful to many others as it was to me! 

Okay but seriously though.

It doesn’t stop doubtful manga looking artbooks.
There are anatomy artbooks by Vilppu, by Matessi…Artbooks from video games( ac , thieves …) ,  Artbooks about zbrush modelling, 3DS max lightning how to texture properly. Even how to concept art for video Games !!Without mentioning artbooks from movies ! From Miyazaki to Pacific Rim, I encourage you to check them out. This post doesn’t have nearly enough notes ! Fellow artits, share the references around ! =D

I was messing around on the new Paradox Space webpage and I thought “Hmm, I wonder if there is some easter egg for entering /413 to the end of the url” and when I hit enter I was met by these two!
Equius! You poor thing! what happened to your computer?!
