Told You He Wasn’T Far Behind: Darth Vader on a Race Car
I knew it. After this ominous sighting, we now have concrete proof that the stories that our chubby, white-bearded forefather told us were just that: mere stories.  Know this: The Sith Lord is upon us. He’s not in a galaxy far, far away.

Microsoft HD View Offers Gigapixel Zoom, Hdr Images, More
I was working on a story about something completely different today when I came across this intriguing digital image technology they’ve been working on for a while over at Microsoft Research. The team sums up their not-too-lofty goal for their HD View technology as follows: “…to create the best picture given (a) a source with high resolution, arbitrary dynamic range, any field of view & color gamut; (b) the user’s interaction; and (c) the display being used.”

Color Me Confused: Analog Digital Photo Frame

Color Me Confused: Analog Digital Photo Frame
This is a frame that’s actually a real frame but it looks like a digital frame. Sort of. I’m confused! The frame is made by Irina Blok. It’s a wooden frame with a hand silkscreened design, made to look like an Apple doc screen.

These amazing video game images by digital artist RETROnoob take familiar bitmapped sprite characters and marry them to real world photographs. Through creative and generous application of digital blur tools, each of the images does a brilliant job blending 2-D and 3-D worlds into one.

Sqish: Camouflage Satellite Dish
If you drive down the average city street, you’ll see scads of ugly satellite dishes protruding from the side walls, balconies and roofs of homes like some sort of convex grey metal virus. So it was only a matter of time before someone would come up with a way to do away with all those unsightly dishes.

Super Mario is Really a Plumber, Really.

Super Mario is Really a Plumber, Really.
I’m not too sure what the trademark police will have to say about this one, but this UK plumbing firm shares more than just a profession with Nintendo’s popular mascot. I’m not sure if SuperMario Plumbing & Heating thinks they can avoid the wrath of the Big “N” by removing the space from the name, or if the fact that Luigi doesn’t work there is is enough to differentiate them.

Tetris Waffles: How to Play With Your Food

Tetris Waffles: How to Play With Your Food
Two of my favorite pastimes, waffles and Tetris have joined forces in this, my favorite photo of the week. I’m guessing that you could slow down those rapidly descending breakfast blocks with just a little butter and maple syrup.

Pocket Tripod Perfect for Casual Photographers
No, it doesn’t have three legs, so it’s not really a tripod, but it serves the same basic purpose. This ingenious little device screws into the tripod thread on the bottom of your camera, providing it with a stable platform for you to take impromptu photos from.

Hp Photosmart A826 Photo Printer: Mork Calling Orson

Hp Photosmart A826 Photo Printer: Mork Calling Orson
This odd-looking photo printer from HP has a style that you’ll either love or hate. Reminiscent in some ways of the original egg-shaped iMac models from the late 1990s, the Photosmart A826 printer looks a bit like something out of an old science fiction movie.

Adobe Photoshop Cs3 for iPhone
So now that you’ve snapped a few photos with your iPhone’s super-duper camera, where do you turn to edit your pix? Do you dock your iPhone with your computer, sync up with iTunes, then open the photos in your desktop image editing software?
