Phone Answering Robot
Built in 1964, back when we as a society seemed to share a collective fascination with robots that would do our household chores, this phone-answering robot was not nearly as functional as it might look at first. Its abilities were limited to picking up the phone…and putting the phone back down. It couldn’t act as a message recorder or even a message player, but it sure did look cool.

Six month pinhole exposure made with a beer can.
Inspired by a pinhole workshop taught by Justin Quinnell, UK based photographer Matt Bigwood created a a six month long exposure using a beer can converted into a pinhole camera. The setup is very simple - an empty beer can with the top removed and a hole made with a needle or pin, a card lid for the can held on with gaffer tape, and a sheet of 5”x7” black and white photographic paper inside. The curve you see is the sun’s path across the sky as distorted by the curve of the can.
