As the year wraps up, it’s time to start looking back on some of its best media, including arguably one of the best horror movies to come out in years, Jordan Peele’s Us . This excellent poster is a great way to commemorate it.

Deepfake Art Project Reimagines Nixon’s Speech Had Apollo 11 Gone Horribly Wrong

A prepared speech that President Richard Nixon thankfully never had to make has been brought to life in an art project that poses the question: Can a deepfake rewrite history?

I'm Willing to Pay an Obscene Amount of Money For This Guy's Brilliant Pedestrian Car Horn Invention

It only takes a few weeks of living in a busy city where the streets and sidewalks are crammed with tourists to appreciate the genius behind Yosef Lerner’s Pedestrian Horn invention. It makes the most useful feature of a car—it’s blaring horn—available to those who prefer to walk.

Even Your Parents Could Master Photoshop's New AI-Powered Automatic Selection Tools

Adobe has been slowly upgrading Photoshop with better tools to make the worst photo editing task—close cropping complex objects—less of a pain. The Magic Wand, the Magnetic Lasso, and the Quick Selections tools were all big improvements, but Photoshop’s AI-powered “Select Subject” tool was the quantum leap pixel pushers had long dreamed of, and Adobe will soon be making it even smarter.

A Psychedelic Art Installation Is Trying to Get People Talking About Climate Solutions

Lazy Artists Will Love This Plastic Bead Printer That Automates Your Arts and Crafts

Painstakingly laying out multi-colored plastic beads (also known as Perler beads) to create mosaic images can be a relaxing way to unwind.

This Artist Paints Endangered Animals to Remind Us What We're Fighting For
