Polar Bear Vignette
Finally, a look inside all those 'polar bear in a snowstorm' pictures.
About this creation
Surely we are all familiar with the classic (and uniformly featureless) pictures of a polar bear in a snowstorm. Well, now Whateverly Labs has developed a new 3-D imaging technology, which can show us what's really behind such images. By adding focal plane shift and depth of field manipulation to the vignette codec, we are able to not only produce a 'Vignette Cube', but also to precisely slice that cube at a chosen depth to reveal the inner workings of 'reality'. Or as we like to call it: a slice of life.

   Here we see the face of the vignette cube, on which you will recognize the original 2-D image.

   A bit of detail within the cube gives us a hint of the depth at which the image may be revealed.

   Another chink reveals the plane on which maximum detail occurs.

   By taking a precise slice, we may reveal the 'inside' of the picture. You can see that the snowstorm is not uniformly dense; the airflow is turbulent around the bear.

   Further scientific discoveries await the application of this technology. Yes, we may have to apply this technology to Goldman's MOCs.

That is a great idea!! When I saw the first couple of pics, I thought it was the standard joke, and no more - but the rest is brilliant! I like the style of the write-ups too. Keep it up!
