NVIDIA and a team of scientists from University of California, Merced have developed an AI algorithm called FastPhotoStyle that is capable of transferring one photo's style, to another, automatically. Unlike similar algorithms, NVIDIA's results can be generated 60 times faster than traditional methods, since it splits the task in two separate steps: a stylization step where the style of a reference photo is transferred to the content photo, and then a smoothing step, which make things photorealistic using 'spacially consistent stylizations.'

Portable N64s are nothing new, but this one by Downings Basement features a plethora of 3D-printed parts. "Just like the Hesline, this is an N64 portable but NTSC instead of PAL. It's got virtually the same specs and component list, other than the fact this was mostly 3D printed using my new SLA Form 2 3D printer. Thought the learning curve was steep with this one and the amount of problems I had trying to make it all work were a royal PITA, this is certainly one of my better works and I'm excited to see where this might lead, given who this was made for," said its creator.

Most digital artists use Adobe software (Illustrator, Photoshop, etc.) to create masterpieces, but 87-year-old Concha Garcia Zaera uses MS Paint, as she discovered the program after her children gifted her a computer. Each one of these paintings takes approximately 2-weeks to complete. "My husband fell ill and I had to take care of him, so I couldn't go out very often. I began painting little things: first, a house, the next day I'd add a mountain...Step by step, I was adding details, and in the end, the result was a very pretty thing. I have no imagination at all, so I get inspiration from the postcards that my husband used to send me or drawings that I find and like," said Zaera.

Justin Whiting from Spalding, U.K. stumbled upon a vintage photo while browsing eBay back in July 2017, and what caught his eye was that it resembled Jesse James. So, he purchased it for $9.99 and went about his business, that is until...he took it to forensic experts in the United States who then confirmed it was original and most likely handled by the famous outlaw himself, aged 14. "It was an easy match since it was compared to a longtime known image of the young Jesse James at 14. Justin's image, however, was the same pose taken the same day by the same photographer[...] [It's a] one-of-a-kind original that most likely was handled by the teenaged Jesse James himself," said 19th-century photo expert Will Dunniway.

Not quite as advanced as the "stacks" seen in Netflix's Altered Carbon, but startup Nectome claims they can perfectly preserve human brains for use in the future when technology will enable them to transfer their consciousness to a computer. How? The company says that they will be able to survey the neural connections within the brain and reconstruct a person's memories long after they have died. Two caveats: co-founder Robert McIntyrehe says the service is "100 percent fatal" for clients, since the brain has to be pumped full of embalming chemicals while still fresh and it will cost you $10,000 for the privilege.

Yes, cameras-equipped weather balloons regularly capture footage from extremely high altitudes, but one man from Russia decided to do the same, but with a drone. He managed to get a 2.34-pound hobbyist drone all the way up to 33,000-feet, and for 25-minutes to boot. Thankfully, Russia has not regulated a maximum height for drone operators, as the footage you see was shot near the central town of Strezhevoy. Continue reading for another video and more information.
