Artist Converts a Typewriter Into an ASCII Art Photo Booth

i/o is an ASCII art photo booth consisting of a modified typewriter, a camera, and an Arduino controller. The interactive installation creates “instant” portraits–in actuality the typewriter must type each character individually in a process that is both lengthy and quite noisy. i/o was created by Moscow-based media artist Dmitry Morozov (::vtol::).

New Jersey Man and His Daughter Capture Adorable Photos of a Troop of Baby Foxes That They Found in Their Backyard

Baby Foxes

When Philip Wang discovered a troop of baby foxes in his Princeton, New Jersey backyard, he took the opportunity to photograph them with the help of his daughter Alice. In an interview with Philly.com, Wang described how he came across the vulpine youngsters in his yard.

I see red foxes a few times a year, so I know we have foxes around, but last week I heard like a soft ‘meowing’ like a cat near a shed. And then I saw that they were very young foxes and started taking their pictures everyday. And they are very, very cute.
