Last year we saw a concept for a pair of glasses that applies Instagram’s filters through its lenses. Bruno Ribeiro took a more literal approach with his Real Life Instagram series, taking not just Instagram’s filters but its entire interface into the real world.
If you think back to when flatscreen TVs first hit the market one of the things that a lot of people wanted to do was mount them on the wall. The problem with mounting most LCD and plasma TVs on walls is that they’re often too thick and heavy, and most of them just ended up sitting on entertainment centers.
Ask and ye shall receive. At least that’s what young Navin got for his birthday present last year – a cake that looks like Chewbacca’s decapitated noggin on a platter.
I didn’t know Wookiee hair and teeth were digestible.
Will we ever run out of creative uses for those primitive little LEGO bricks? I think not. Brickfan (Reasonably Clever) Chris Doyle has created a functioning LEGO remake of the infamous Picture of Dorian Gray. Chris actually retitled his version A Portrait of Dorian Bley, a reference to a “controversial” blue-grey LEGO color that replaced “Classic Slate,” oh my.
We weren’t so happy with the PIC 1000, Polaroid’s overpriced revision of their classic instant cameras. For those who only really want an instant camera for the white borders on the pictures, here’s a cheap solution – a picture frame that’s nothing but a white border.
Although Polaroid already has the PoGo – a digital camera that can also print pictures instantly – the upcoming PIC 1000 is the more faithful successor to their classic instant cameras. Not only does the PIC 1000 have the famous Polaroid body, the pictures it prints also features the classic white borders, thanks to the revival of good old Polaroid Color 600 instant film.
If you know what to do when Andre3000 tells you to shake it like a Polaroid picture, then you’re probably well acquainted with the anachronistic instant cameras from as early as the late 40’s. For the younger folks out there, instant cameras have built-in printers and use self-developing films, allowing users to print their pictures seconds after each shot.
Have you ever seen those headless paintings or headless cardboard figures in parks or zoos or movie theaters? The ones where you can place your head where the head of the thing should be, such that you look exactly what an idiot would look like?
Almost a year ago a RedPost made news with their hackable Linux picture frame, the RedPost/Kit. Today, the guys at RedPost announced Kit’s better, faster, stronger kid brother, the Signbeta.
While it certainly can be used as a digital picture frame, RedPost’s real mission is to replace wasteful paper-covedred bulletin boards with an electronic version.
The guys over at RedPost come right out and say it. They want you to hack their new digital picture frame and do whatever you want with it.
For starters, the RedPost/Kit is a gorgeous digital picture frame with a large 19-inch Hannspree LCD screen.
The faux pas of the day comes to us courtesy of master of all things Xbox, Major Nelson. Apparently, some junior web developer over at Sony mistakenly used a screenshot of the Xbox hit racing game, Project Gotham Racing 3 in an advertisement for Gran Turismo 4.
