Love them or hate them, selfie sticks can be useful in taking pictures at tourist attractions.  They help you avoid that awkward arms length effect. It also saves you from having to ask total strangers to take your photo, not always with successful results. However, they can be a real menace at some attractions. So if you are a fan of selfie sticks, it pays to check with Can I Bring My Selfie Stick before you travel and see if a particular place bans them. Or if you really dislike them, find a selfie stick-free spot!

The site gives succinct answers – Yes or No- to dozens of popular attractions around the world.  There is no search box. Instead users can find the attraction either through an A-Z list, by location or by type of attraction.  It’s no surprise to see museums with precious artifacts and art work banning selfie sticks entirely.  Some of the theme parks do allow them but for safety reasons, not on rides.

Can I Bring My Selfie was created by the online ticket company, AttractionTix.co.uk. The company hopes to expand the listing in the future by allowing  users and other attractions submit new locations.

Google’s DreamScope App Turns Your Photos into Surreal Art

Google’s research on artificial neural networks aims to improve image classification and speech recognition. They train these neural networks with literally millions of examples. But they also used simple techniques to visualize how these networks learn.  They then wondered,  “whether neural networks could become a tool for artists—a new way to remix visual concepts—or perhaps even shed a little light on the roots of the creative process in general.”  The  DeepDream code they developed has just been released to the public to play with as the Dreamscope web app .  What it does is to turn your photos into surreal art.
