Land Rover fans can enjoy two fictional, Instagram adventure stories where the first story, viewable at @SolitudeInSawtooth, follows the outdoor journey of a young couple as they explore Sawtooth National Forest in Idaho. Similarly, @BrotherhoodOfWonderstone follows two brothers as they embark on an expedition through Kanab, Utah. In each Instagram Adventure, gorgeous landscape photos are seamlessly stitched together to form day-into-night panoseries (similar to panorama but with multiple photos represented) scenes.

Users can tap various tiles within each panoseries to view videos that progress the story, showcase technical off-roading knowledge (like how to properly ford a river) and learn unique survival tips, such as how to turn a leaf into a compass, or how to treat a wound in the wild.
Very cool. Created by the guys at Y&R NYC.

Facebook & Internet.org have launched their first full-scale internet drone called “Aquila” which is a solar powered, unmanned plane (drone) that beams down internet connectivity from the sky to remote parts of the world who otherwise can’t get the internet, either due to cost or lack of infrastructure.

The Internet.org Drone has the wingspan of a Boeing 737, but weighs less than a car and can stay in the air for months at a time. It will also be armed with an all-new laser that can transmit data at 10 gigabits per second. That’s ten times faster than any previous laser-communications system, and it can accurately connect with a point the size of a small coin, from more than 10 miles away. Crazy!

Land Rover’s 5×5 Film Project was designed to sell the newest feature. The 5x Cameras. And a brand that is known for always forging into new territory, can’t promote a new feature just like any other car company. So Land Rover challenged five-up-and coming directors to create their own uncommon adventure story that would debut at the Sundance Film Festival.

But there was one catch: USE THE CAR AS THE CAMERA.
Each film was shot using only the native five camera surround system.
