Incredibly Intricate Cardboard Columns Are the World’s Most Complex Architecture
User Rating: / 5

We're big fans of cardboard architecture, but in most cases, the material yields structures that are boxy and rather simplistic. That's why we were blown away when we spotted these incredibly intricate cardboard columns by Michael Hansmeyer, which FastcoDesign actually dubbed as the most complex architecture in the world. The dizzying Doric column variations are created on Hansmeyer's computer using a subdivision algorithm that allows them to have between 8 and 16 million facets (distinct surfaces). They're so insanely detailed that most people - including us - mistake the actual physical prototypes for computer renderings!

New Species Discovered in Papua New Guinea
User Rating: / 4
When it comes to finding fascinating species previously unknown to science, it turns out that forests of Papua New Guinea are a darn good place to look. Researchers have recently disclosed their discoveries from a two-month long expedition to the country last year, in which they happened upon over two hundred species never before recorded -- like the tube-nosed fruit bat pictured above. Strangely familiar he is, though from where I know not.

According to a report from Huliq, the expedition was undertaken over the course of two months in 2009 by the Conservation International Rapid Assessment Program -- a group that aims to explore for unique life in some of the world's most remote regions. Traveling through the forests of Papua New Guinea, two teams of researchers managed to find dozens of new frog species, nine new plants, two new mammals, and nearly 100 new insects.
