L.A.-based artist Matt Story has the unique talent of creating hyper-realistic artworks which capture a moment in time and look as detailed as photographs. Having worked as a technical illustrator and graphic artist in film and television, Story now focuses on his oil paintings, using traditional techniques on canvas to produce the stunning works. Enjoy this selection from his "Water" series and head over to his website to see his city and landscape paintings which are equally as impressive.
Having always championed transparency, Apple has released what will likely be the first in a series of updates centered on providing feedback and support for the average consumer and/or developer. The first post addresses the "top 10 reasons for app rejections" and an accompanying chart graphically distinguishes rejected reasonings. For the reasons included in the top 10 list, the chart visually represents the percentage of apps that fall victim to not fulfilling the specific requirements. Head over to Apple for the full read and share your thoughts regarding the list below.

The Rig Out highlights Reebok with the introduction of this brand new editorial and film. Dubbed "Give Me Your Classics and I'll Show You The Future," the piece looks at the way in which the pioneering brand has shaped modern sportswear, as well as British youth culture, since its evolution out of J.W. Foster and Sons back in 1958. Directed by Antony Crook with cinematography by Lol Crawley and a voiceover from Paul Popplewell, the editorial and video are set in Bolton and Manchester -- the birthplace of Reebook -- and coincide with the upcoming September 4 release of the retrospective Reebok Classics brand book.
Anyone who spends a significant amount of time on the saddle will know that it is a jungle out there. Every time you take the bike on the road you are throwing yourself into a potentially fatal mix of aggressive drivers, bad drivers and bad luck. Having a camera won’t help with the last variable, but it can help you gather evidence against the first two. The Fly6 does just that, in a particularly clever fashion.
The Fly6 is a tail light with an integrated camera and microphone. The camera continuously shoots 15-minute segments in 720p, with a a wide angle (130º) lens – recording them on an 8GB (included) microSD card. The recording loops, to spare you the hassle of cleaning up the memory card every time it fills up. What separates it from the wide range of traffic cameras on the market is that it is made for cycling – it features a water-repellent coating to keep it safe from the elements and has a 5-hour battery life.
Below is the video from the Fly6′s Kickstarter project,

Carrying your own water is good for the environment and everything, but it isn’t exactly good for the paper contents of your bag. If you have tossed a water bottle in your bag before, you will have no doubt had the experience of turning a loose piece of paper into a crumpled mess – or worse, a soggy crumpled mess. The folks behind Memobottle hope to change all of that by releasing a bottle that is the same shape as industry-standard paper: A4, A5 and Letter.
Regarding capacity, the A5 bottle carries 750mL (25 oz), while the A4 and Letter bottles let you carry 1.25L (~42 oz) – pretty standard stuff. If you fill it with booze then it is enough for a small party.
Prices: The Memobottle is a Kickstarter project, but it has been successfully funded. $20 nets you an A5 bottle, $30 gets you one of the bigger ones.
