Holi, also known as the Festival of Colors, is a religious spring festival celebrated by Hindus.
The main day, Holi, also known as Dhuli in Sanskrit, or Dhulheti, Dhulandi or Dhulendi, is celebrated by people throwing scented powder and perfume at each other. Bonfires are lit on the eve of the festival, also known as Holika Dahan (burning of Holika) or Chhoti Holi (little Holi), after which holika dahan prayers are said and praise is offered. The bonfires are lit in memory of the miraculous escape that young Prahlad accomplished when Demoness Holika, sister ofHiranyakashipu, carried him into the fire. Holika was burnt but Prahlad, a staunch devotee of god Vishnu, escaped without any injuries due to his devotion.
Check it out (below) in slow-motion in the short film entitled “Holi” which was directed and produced by Jonathan Bregel and Khalid Mohtaseb from Variable.

Students at the Hasso Plattner Institute in Potsdam, Germany have created a new concept for smartphones they call the “imaginary phone” concept. The premise of the idea is to allow users to be able to do micro interactions with their phones, without actually having to interact with their phone. Working with the phone on a daily basis gives us a fair idea of the buttons and operations that could be done without even looking at the phone.
Currently, the concept utilizes depth sensitive cameras to recognize hand gestures like tapping and sliding to ultimately convey the information to the smartphone. Patrick Baudisch, a professor of computer science at the institute believes the idea could come in useful for certain interactions where the imaginary phone serves as a shortcut to rid users of common mundane tasks.
This was filmed between 29th April and 10th May 2011 in the Arctic, on the archipelago Lofoten in Norway. The Sunset and Sunrise are connected in one magnificent show of color and light lasting from 8 to 12 hours. The sun is barely going below the horizon before coming up again.
