Here’s what an explosion of flavors literally looks like

the sound of taste

(From Sploid) We know it’s tasty and delicious but who knew flavor could be so beautiful? This audio visual installation by Schwartz Flavour Shots riffs off the explosion of flavors one tastes with spices by literally exploding those flavors.

Several tons of black pepper corns, cardamom, turmeric, paprika, cumin seeds, ginger, chili and coriander were placed in explosive bags, rigged to explode on certain notes. Looks delicious.

DJ MJ Cole, filmmaker Chris Cairns and prytotechnic designers Machine Shop teamed with Schwartz Flavour Shots to create this explosive “Sonic Flavourscape”.

The idea was to explode certain spices on individual piano notes or chords to create a 3D soundscape. Teamed with the music, it makes for quite peaceful explosions (if there is such a thing).

So cool, this is what flavor looks like (and sounds like).

Terrific Warhammer 40K Cosplay

(From Kotaku) Nearly every piece of Warhammer 40K cosplay you see is some kind of human character, being all grim and gruff and shouting something about heresy. So it’s nice to see Russia’s Narga show the Eldar’s Howling ...
