FreddieW is back and this time he’s brought us a super cool look at what Super Mario would play like if it were a 3D first-person perspective game. Besides the slick animations, what makes this video even more spectacular is that it offers you two perspectives at once; you can follow Mario’s journey through World 1-1 in the reimagined first-person mode and in the top-left corner you can watch the plumber do it the old fashioned way. Neat-o.
Holy frick (on a stick with a brick) this is spooky! Russian photographer Sergey Larenkov has managed to combine old WWII era photographs with present day pictures to create a visual time portal. Using simple but effective Photoshop techniques in tandem with perspective-matching images, Larenkov was able to blend war-torn Europe, including famous cities like Saint Petersburg and Leningrad, into what we consider normal, everyday life. Above Georgy Zhukov of the Soviet Union glares into the camera standing on steps full of rubbish as tourists flock around him and his lieutenants, minding their own business. The gallery below contains a bunch more enhanced images like this one, so check ‘em out. Want to see more? Head over to Larenkov’s website and get sucked into a whole ‘nother dimension.
