Wow, wow, wow, wow, wow. The Pammukkale in Turkey looks like a bewitchingly tranquil place with these natural terraced pools. Apparently when earthquake activity thousands of years ago brough chalk-like water rich in calcium carbonate to the surface, the substance piled on layer after layer, accumulating to form the terraces.
This video done by Brussup has to seen to be believed. Or not believed, whichever the case may be. I’ve read that it has something to do with camera trickery, but I prefer to fantasize about a 24 hertz sine wave, anti-gravity, water fountain in my front yard.
A UK-based company has apparently made the world’s largest inflatable water slide which comes with lightweight airstairs and ergonomic handles, plus looks like it will make for days and days of incredible fun. It’s a bummer that this 41ft tall self-lifting Cruiser ‘S is designed to be one of two slides that will go off […]
Here’s something that completely baffles us: giant floating faucet fountains. It’s not just one faucet either — they are everywhere in the world, from Spain, to Switzerland, to Canada. Thing is, who put these up, and why do they exist? Apparently you can set one up at home too, but why would you want to? […]
The Works Sydney has recently unveiled the largest cooler in the world. The 36-by-15-metre cooler stocked with giant Jim Beam “cans” was constructed at the Bondi Icebergs pool. The cooler was filled with approximately 2 million litres of water, more than 500 giant “ice cubes” and 33 Jim Beam “cans” that measure 1.9 metres in […]
I have lived in and loved Mexico City. It’s a thrilling metropolis, underrated completely and with energy and imagination unlike any other. But when in Mexico, you don’t drink the water. It’s one of those ‘rules’. And that is precisely part of what makes Casa del Agua – literally house of water – so intriguing. Ironic even. The water at this Mexico City boutique is bottled, of course. Rainwater is collected through a teak patio and garden then filtered and purified on site a thousand different ways (including running over stones with the words “love,” “respect” and “gratitude”) until it reaches its “highest potential.”
One day Sophia Collier was walking across a bridge and wished she could just reach down into the water and pick up a piece of that shining surface and keep it forever. She wondered how to recreate it, and from her day job in finance, she knew it was possible to develop software to model vast, turbulent, nonlinear data sets like money ‘and also, maybe, water in motion.’
German photographer Markus Reugels macro photography of colored water drops highlights the beauty in common substances. Reugels ‘LiquidArt’ shows the intricacy of each tiny splash and the incredible shapes that form when the water is ‘frozen’ in mid-air. Each image reveals the dynamic and elegant properties of water.
After first running across this video the other day, I haven’t been able to take my mind off the idea of what other possible applications this medium could lend itself to. It evokes a spectrum of immersive capabilities. The quality of the image is stunning and I’m sure quite haunting when experienced in person.
Hollywood stars and supermodels have been drinking it for years. H2COCO is an Australian company that makes some of the most nutritious and delicious drinks going.

Do you remember the first time you went to the beach? This is three year-old Nicole’s first time ever playing at the beach. I don’t remember my first time in the sand or water, but I can only hope that I had this much fun! On a technical note, this was shot entirely on the […]
