Ever want to chuck your GoPro to get good aerial shots but don't have the right foam padding not to break it? Enter AER.





Their new invention--basically a giant Nerf arrow around a GoPro--makes it possible.



The videos sound like they wouldn't be worth seeing, but are surprisingly action-packed little bits of fun. I especially like the parts where it looks like you'll run smack into someone at the end of each one:

And then it rained Skittles, and they all rejoiced.

Navy photographer Ignacio Perez captured the above image Tuesday of the USS John C. Stennis passing through a rainbow in the Pacific Ocean.

“As a photographer I am used to documenting operational events like aircraft launches and recoveries,” he told CNN. “But when I saw the rainbow I was excited because it was different. I knew the odds of the ship passing near another rainbow were pretty slim.”

Twenty cancer patients were invited to receive full makeovers that included hair and makeup. They were asked to keep their eyes shut through the transformation, and sit in front of a one way mirror. A photographer prepped on the other side of that mirror when they open their eyes, and what he captures is an amazing reaction that, if only for a brief moment, takes them out of the pain and suffering that cancer brings to their lives.
