When this video was sent to us the morning, with the simple YouTube description of "The Niagara Falls filmed from a DJI Phantom with a GoPro Hero 3," we knew it was going to be something of interest, or at least a good way to waste about 3.5 minutes. Then we cranked up the 1080 resolution, turned up the volume, and had a surreal few moments that made us have to pee and want to go to Niagara Falls.

Yesterday, at Nike's headquarters in Beaverton, Oregon, Juxtapoz was invited to attend both a design and innovation summit based around Nike's new campaign, "Nature Amplified," and two new running shoe releases that will challenge and invigorate the notion of the running shoe. Nike, at its core, has always been about running, and we got to test out both the Nike Free Flyknit and Free Hyperfeel. But even better, we got to experience some pretty amazing visual presentations and installation showcases of both art and shoe, design and progression of technologies.

The Human Speaker collar is able to turn one's mouth into a speaker. It bypasses the vocal chords and transmits vibrations directly into the upper throat so wearers can play music by only moving their lips and mouth. Since the collar can only produce up to two music notes, the collar's compositions can become more complex the more people using it come together. Watch a video after the jump...

The Camera Lucida is an optical device that was designed by Sir William Hyde Wollaston and used a prism to project an image onto paper for tracing. Some claim that many of the Old Masters used them but they now are only found in antique stores and on EBay. Come Pablo Garcia and Golan Levin who recently teamed up to design the NeoLucida with the belief that it will "profoundly change how people see, how they draw, and how they think about art."

Last month, we showed you the 3D printing photo booth that was open in Tokyo, and we speak for most of you by saying it was a winner. Now, Hot Pop Factory has found a way to scan your head with an XBox Kinect and print your noggin out with a 3D printer, thus making a 3D model of you. And after you print your head out multiple times, and your friends' heads, too, you will have a sea of PEZ dispenser tops to share.
