3D Snowflakes

Skateboarding India, poems on Mars, 3D-printed ears and more in our look at the web this week

Researches at the University of Utah have developed a system for photographing snowflakes in free-fall. With a high-speed setup on the slopes of Alta, the crew has been able to record half a million 3D images to date, extensively cataloging and bringing to life a subject that is normally next to impossible to capture on film and off.
