Hamilton claims that the Time Player watch was inspired by the fact that man used to believe that the earth was flat. So Hamilton made… a flat watch. A flat watch that displays the time in four different zones, and doubles as a pseudo-puzzle.
A lot of gamers – myself included – prefer to use the third-person point of view when driving vehicles in video games. I just find it easier to steer if I can see how far my vehicle is from a turn; in first-person I always end up steering too late.
If you’ve never seen Dr. Horrible’s Sing Along Blog, you’ve probably been sleeping under a rock (or maybe you just have a real life). The humorous short film was created by Joss Whedon and his brothers, and starred Neil Patrick Harris in some ridiculous sci-fi musical theater.
I’m just getting used to the massive 2560 pixel wide display on my new 27-inch iMac, and then I had to see this gaming rig.
The guys over at Ostendo are making these new CRVD displays, which not only offer a whopping 2880 by 900 pixel resolution, but are curved to engulf you in the action with a 90-degree field of vision.
If you’ve ever wanted to take your PS3 on the go, this could be the best way to do so. I’ve taken consoles on the road, but it usually involved lugging an LCD display and a bunch of other stuff to make it work.
AdAge ranks the Energizer Bunny as number 5 among the top advertising icons, right up there with the likes of Ronald McDonald and the Marlboro Man. We still see it on TV and online ads, but the modern Energizer Bunny is obviously digitally created.
You know the drill: take a gadget, make no improvements or additions to its functionality but plaster some rare gems on it and voila. You have a world’s most expensive <insert gadget here>.
The World’s Most Expensive Computer Mouse – yes, that’s actually the gadget’s name – is made by Pat Says Now.
A remake of Star Wars: A New Hope will come out soon, but it won’t be a re-master, and it won’t feature big-time actors. Using the unlimited power of the Internet, A New Hope has been split into 472 15-second scenes, and the remake of each scene is up to any willing contributor, free to stamp their own unique take on the geektastic classic.
At first glance, the idea of a pricey pad of paper that looks like an iPad seemed a bit unnecessary to me. Then, I got to thinking that if I were an iPad app developer, these pads actually could be pretty handy for sketching out ideas for new apps.
The guys over at Worth 1000 recently ran a contest for the best mash-up between classical works of art and modern video games. The results… hysterical…
The first place prize went to the God of War painting above, by David Owens.
I really like Olivier Demangel‘s take on the Nintendo DS. It’s true that the DSi XL has got larger screens, but Olivier’s design makes them even bigger. He calls it the Nintendo 3DS, which happens to be the name Nintendo has been using for their upcoming 3D console.
The big news this weekend (and last week and this week for that matter) was the launch of the iPad. The device landed in stores and on doorsteps on Saturday to hoards of geeks jumping up and down with glee.
