Artist and professor creates stunning man-made rainbow

As kids, rainbows signified something magical, an etherealness that had to do with fairies and leprechauns waiting at the end of the rainbow with a pot of gold. With age came a more logical explanation of moisture, sunlight and the reflection and refraction of light. But despite our understanding of the phenomenon, rainbows still have the ability to instill awe, similar to how witnessing auroras make us feel. Michael Jones McKean is a man with a passion for rainbows. His interest has led him to develop a system that actually creates a man-made rainbow which can be seen arching over the Bemis Center in Nebraska.

Avengers mania: Iron man suit that is made out of cardboard and fiberglass!

We have seen some really cool cardboard superhero models and suits before. People have done the Hellboy with some excellence, though his Right hand of Doom in that might have needed a bit more work.

The integration of Isomorphic Geometry advances the art of paper folding

Representation of real world objects is the result of the passive observations that forms the paradigm for reality. If this statement is a bit hard to digest, you can simply refer to isomorphism; the mathematical term, which relates to the use of insights from one phenomenon to another. Paper folding art too has taken inspiration from this concept and the design here showcases two kinetic sculptures that take the same shape, but are of different sizes.
