Programmer Creates 22 Photos Where Each Pixel Represents The Number Of Endangered Animals Left In The World

Back in 2008, WWF Japan has launched a powerful campaign titled Population by pixel, where each pixel of a photo represented the number of animals still left alive. The eye-opening campaign was created by creative directors Nami Hoshino, Yoshiyuki Mikami, and designer Kazuhiro Mochizuki working for the Hakuhodo C&D creative agency in Tokyo. And now, 11 years later, Imgur user JJSmooth44 has done an impromptu follow-up inspired by the original Japanese campaign.

The user says he did it as a programming challenge using Python but calls the code “very gross”. He got the numbers for the animals in Animal Planet’s endangered animals’ list. “I only worried about the final product and not the readability/niceness of the code,” writes JJSmooth44.

Check out the pixelated photos of endangered animals in the gallery below!

Aušrys Uptas

One day this guy just kind of figured “I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?” – and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that’s trending around the web. Something that always peeks his interests is old technology, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness so if you find something that’s too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?

The World’s Most Incredible Escalators

Also known as stairs that move, today’s escalator seems as revolutionary a concept as vending machines, barely more exciting than coin-operated pay phones. Slowly and diagonally, they move pedestrians up toward destinations with indeterminate reward—like a second-floor Gap. Frequently central pieces of architecture, escalators climb stories with ease, but they’re often eyesores. A handful of designs, however, take the necessary model to the next level. Practical can be pretty, and worthy of a runway—or at the very least, a stunning step up.

Atomium (Brussels, Belgium)

While nothing can beat the exterior of Brussels’ Atomium—originally constructed for the 1958 World’s Fair, it’s designed like a magnified unit cell of an iron crystal—it’d be silly to overlook the beauty of its parts. Metal tubes connect massive spheres and double as pathways, wherein original escalators make lengthy journeys (one of which, just under 115 feet long, was Europe’s longest escalator at the time).

Fondaco dei Tedeschi (Venice, Italy)

Originally constructed in 1228, Venice’s iconic building Fondaco dei Tedeschi arrived long before the first escalator landed in 1896 (in Coney Island, believe it or not). Commissioned to rework the ancient landmark into a new-age department store, architecture firm OMA articulated a new path through the historic building, dressing the escalator with runway-ready accents: red steps, red trim, and rich wooden paneling.

Public (New York City)

Ian Schrager’s shiny new Public hotel in Manhattan’s Lower East Side makes an entrance—no surprise for the hotelier known for cofounding Studio 54. Past the ground floor’s revolving doors, escalators designed by Herzog & de Meuronare encased in metal tubes that shoot toward the second-floor lobby. Inside, mirrored surfaces reflect and repeat the golden-orange lights that are piped along handrails, much to the delight of Instagram.
