Link Round-Up: December 9, 2016

An A.I. wrote a Christmas song and...yeah.

An Atari 2600 Emulator in Minecraft built by Youtube user SethBling. After the initial 'wow' response this is actually a fascinating under-the-hood model/demo/explanation of how video game cartridges and displays functioned.

In her politically-inspired series “Sweet Land of Liberty“, the extremely talented Trina Merry painted the bodies of models of different shapes and sizes so that they would blend into the landscape of iconic American landmarks such as the White House, the Jefferson Memorial, the Freedom Tower, the Supreme Court, the Lincoln Memorial, Independence Hall and the Washington Monument. The project is a powerful comment on Merry’s belief of “justice, balance, human rights.” In an excellent Time Out New York profile, Merry shared where she found the inspiration for her creative projects.

NASA has put a load of 3D models and resources online, so everyone get started on using them to make the next Kerbal Space Program game or something.

The shellfish that was one of the main sources of Tyrian purple – one of the most storied and valuable trading products in the ancient world – has disappeared from the eastern Mediterranean coast: "The dye’s origin was shrouded in mythology, not least the suggestion it was discovered by Heracles’ dog after it ate the shellfish and its mouth turned purple.  The dye was hugely valuable because it has been estimated that it took thousands of shells to produce a single kilo. It was produced by collecting thousands of dye-producing molluscs, crushing them and allowing them to rot in large vats before the colour was boiled out." Via: The Guardian
