These camera-sunglasses can post photos and videos directly to Facebook and YouTube

Let’s be honest: We all document our lives on Facebook and Instagram. But have you ever wanted to do that secretly? 

If so, these very strange-looking sunglasses could be for you. Acton, a company which primarily sells electric skateboards, has launched ACE Eyewear, a pair of sunglasses that doubles as a covert camera. (The sunglasses were first discovered by The Verge.)

The Best Wedding Photos Of 2017 Are Here (And They’re Beyond Beautiful)

A handful of stunning images have been named as the best wedding photos of 2017.

The shots make up Junebug Weddings’ prestigious annual selection and include pictures from nearly 9,000 entrants all around the world.

Judged by a panel of industry experts, the images show dozens of couples and their loved ones celebrating their happy day.

This year marks the 10th year the best wedding photo contest has been held.

Carrie Schwab, general manager and editor-in-chief at Junebug Weddings, said: “Emotion is the most important thing when it comes to taking a good wedding photo. Without emotion, photos are boring, even if they have all of the technical stuff down.

“Nearly 9,000 images were submitted to the contest this year. I’m always blown away by the number of countries that are represented in our entrant pool. We had entrants from Serbia, Puerto Rico, Slovenia, Brazil, and Singapore to name a few.” 

Carrie continued: “Our judging panel is comprised of three industry leaders, along with the Junebug Weddings team. The photos are taken through multiple rounds and assigned points by the judges. 

“Our team then works to match up the points and from there, it’s really just a matter of reviewing the images that are awarded the most points and fact-checking the final set.”

She added: “I have a lot of favourites from this year’s collection but one thing that they all have in common is that they are fun and joyful, which reminds me of how I felt on my own wedding day.”

Jupiter has the blues, just like the rest of us

It’s been a pretty crappy week here on Earth, so let’s take our bad moods on a little interplanetary excursion.

Jupiter seems to be a nice fit. 

The giant planet’s roiling clouds, churning in its northern hemisphere, make it look like a peaceful Van Gogh painting in this newly-released photo taken by NASA’s Juno spacecraft. 

SEE ALSO: This is what Jupiter sounds like

“The Juno spacecraft captured this image when the spacecraft was only 11,747 miles (18,906 kilometers) from the tops of Jupiter’s clouds — that’s roughly as far as the distance between New York City and Perth, Australia,” NASA said in a statement about the image taken on October 24.  Read more…

Dennis Quaid and dogs: a delightful combination

Dennis Quaid, star of The Rookie and A Dog’s Purpose and hot dad of The Parent Trap, likes dogs. This we can tell.

In fact, a 2003 Architectural Digest feature on Dennis Quaid’s Montana ranch is so good not because of the ranch (although the ranch is beautiful), but because it features images of Dennis Quaid with dogs.

A new book of colorized historical photos brings the past to life

c. 1930

An overhead view of people on 36th St. between 8th and 9th Aves., New York. Manhattan’s Garment District has been the center of the American fashion industry since at least the turn of the twentieth century – in 1900, New York City’s garment trade was its largest industry by a factor of three. The entire fashion ecosystem, from fabric suppliers to designer showrooms, exists within an area just under a square mile.

Native New Yorker Margaret Bourke-White was in her mid-twenties when she took this picture. She would later become Life magazine’s first female photojournalist and, during WWII, the first female war correspondent.

The two cars shown are a 1930 Ford Model A 4-Door Sedan, left, and a Ford Model A Sports Coupe, right. Read more…
