Puzzling Ancient Artifacts

weird stuff

Over the last few decades, miners in
South Africa have been digging up
mysterious metal spheres. Origin
unknown, these spheres measure
approximately an inch or so in diameter,
and some are etched with three parallel
grooves running around the equator.
Two types of spheres have been found:
one is composed of a solid bluish metal
with flecks of white; the other is
hollowed out and filled with a spongy
white substance. The kicker is that the
rock in which they where found is
Precambrian – and dated to 2.8 billion
years old! Who made them and for
what purpose is unknown.

AutoPano

cool panorama

Here is a killer piece of software that automatically
creats panoramic pictures from your panorama shots.
Above were 16 shots from a digital camera dumped
into AutoPano. AutoPano then automatically found
the panoramas and spliced them together and color faded
them and created new picture files. Below is one of the
panoramas found within the 16 shots. Very cool software
and cutting edge stuff.
