Unless you're a celebrity and / or a big name company (Google, Facebook, etc.), asking a programmer to complete a job for "exposure" simply isn't feasible. Someone asked programmer Zach Zundel just that recently, or to be more specific, to do coding/backend work for free: "Lmao sorry friendaloo but if you want me to write you a couple thousand lines of code you get to profit from forever it's gonna cost you," said Zach in a tweet.

We've featured Michael Paul Smith's work before, but his fictional "Elgin Park" town is an optical illusion worth revisiting. This professional model maker and photographer uses forced perspective to make the 1950s town appear more real than not. All of the cars were handmade and are detailed enough to not be mistaken for toys when shot up-close. "I created Elgin Park so anybody can be there. It's a miniaturization of life," said Smith.

Back to the Future fan Spencer White wanted to get his newly acquired 1982 DeLorean DMC-12 up to 88 mph, in hopes of time traveling, but unfortunately, he instead received a speeding ticket from the California Highway Patrol.

"We Do Phoshop" is a Korea-based Facebook group that takes Photoshop requests from its fans, no matter how ridiculous they may be, and turns them into even crazier images.

Inventor Colin Furze is back at it again, and this time, he's created "Play-O-Wave", or in other words, a functional microwave game console. In the test, he plays games loaded directly onto a controller via a component connection, but in reality, you could hook up a real game console, or just enjoy your favorite television shows, using the display. Yes, it can still cook food while you play games, and the door had to be made slightly thicker for things to function properly, but as you can see, the project was well worth the time.

It captures the moment of a stroll on a windy summer's day. Digital artist "Lothlenan" specializes on giving these types of paintings geeky makeovers, and in this case, Totoro takes the place of the woman. Continue reading for more.

The internet is a goldmine for wasting time, especially when it comes to memes and random images. Some users have come across quite a few painfully obvious signs that probably did not need to be put up. For example, putting a "Caution: Fire is Hot" sign right next to a scalding flame, probably isn't the smartest idea, but whoever happens to blow right past this sign, there's a nice fence railing to keep you safe from the heat.
