Have you ever taken pictures at the zoo? It's an exercise in futility. Your puny camera strains to see far-away beasts with their backs turned. Lame. But what if you could get them to come right up to you?
That's exactly what Mark Rober has figured out how to do.
Mark is our rocket scientist friend at NASA JPL who brought us the iPad Halloween Costume, Whiteboard Office Darts, and even explained to us How Spaceships Are Born, but in some ways, this is his coolest video yet. I have never seen anybody get that close to a large animal at a zoo (people being eaten not withstanding), and the resulting shots are just incredible.
