See the inventions and resources that they used for the ear before the inventing the radar. Analogue devices, such as these, make us curious. Do not miss it.
The radar was a turning point in history. A device that alerts you and displays the position of a given body is a must, especially in war time.
The absence of a device to report on the proximity of an element was becoming necessary. Given this need, they began to develop devices of all kinds (many of them absurd) to enhance the sense of hearing. Here are some of these analogue devices.
Analogue technology at its best. Like the photograph, all technology has had its beginnings (some more successful than others).
Today, the radar is an essential element in many areas of everyday life. The weather-radar helps predict rainfall, aircraft type provides information on air traffic / sea / land, maritime radar type improves navigation, radar monitors traffic speed limits and stopping distances and so on. There are countless applications that can give you the convenience that you need. It is important to appreciate the strange contraptions that were used to further technology and development in 1934.

Through the oeuvres of Stanley Kubrick and Wes Anderson as well as George Miller's "Mad Max", we compare how they use symmetry and center framing for the stunning visual effect that continues to take a strong clutch on their audiences.
Travelling like the Chinese is a tough call to make theses days, as they are discovering the planet like no time before. But going to places only the Chinese go is a great choice to make these days. One of those places is the magical island of Gulang Yu.
Mitchell Wojcik is based in Brooklyn, New York. He likes "Ghostbusters, and to make whatever comes to mind and document my life as I go." He used to put a lot of thought into things, but now prefers to have fun and not think about it at all. Hmm, sounds like a perfect match for the Lomo'Instant Automat Glass!
For newcomer Aurélie Raidron, shooting on film is a welcome break from the almost perfect image-rendering of digital devices. She makes the most out of the blurs, grains, and "happy accidents" inherent to analogue photography and incorporates them to create hauntingly beautiful photographs.
Musician, photographer and urban/world explorer Acey Slade tested the Neptune Convertible Art Lens System and shared his first impressions with us here. Acey, known as a touring bassist for rock legends such as Joan Jett, loves the compact size and portability of the system and praises it highly.

We all have our ways of making our cameras our own, making them do what we want, and helping us to remember how to use them. This is my take on making my Sprocket Rocket mine, with marks and hints on making it easier to use.
Solène Ballesta is a Parisian photographer who started photography at 15 years old. This talented photographer was awarded in 2014 by the special mention of the young fashion photography Picto Awards. In her shots, Solène drives us to an enchanted world. For this series, she used the Daguerreotype Achromat Art Lens and she's telling us the story of a woman who is waiting for someone or something in her small theater and who decides to venture to the morning mist. “It is the uncertainty that charms one. A mist makes things wonderful.” said Oscar Wilde.
The camera is an auxiliary to our sight; seeing things that the naked eye cannot. Everything is not what it seems in the David Lynch-like lens of analogue photographer Grace Gloria Denis as she zooms up-close to seemingly mundane still life.
The existence of light grants us to see the whole spectrum of the prism. As we walk our way across the rainbow, we study, ruse and add meanings to the colors. Some mixes are a match made in heaven; such is the sky and sea.
