Muvi Micro DV clip-on camcorder. 2GB micro-sd card = 2 hours of VGA. So a 16GB card can record pretty much your every waking moment. Hmmm, lifecording anyone? Oh, battery life is 2-3hrs. Maybe not just yet then. Robert X Cringely’s latest column has some interesting thoughts on the shift to mobile computing, and the […]

…No one’s been like Gaston A king pin like Gaston No one’s got a swell cleft in his chin like Gaston… Brainworm alert: Gaston’s song from Beauty and the Beast: Oliver Sachs discusses the concept: Excellent.

Straight from the p9a76588_robotperson RSS roster Lovely timelapsed videos of Tokyo sunsets. Turn your sound off though. Easy to see where Chiho Aoshima finds inspiration. static : pulse from Samuel Cockedey on Vimeo. Prezi, a mindblowing alternative to Powerpoint. Check an example. I’ve also started using Free mind recently, and open source mind-mapping bit of […]

April fool round up

Wednesday, April 1st, 2009

Google’s April fool today describing the launch of a “global-scale neuro-evolutionary learning cluster” got a good chuckle out of me. It’s a play on Kurzweil’s singularity, and I *love* the idea that the world’s first conscious machine would be, like, rly in2 pandas OMG so cute! Here’s how they describe their Skynet moment!: …tonight we’re […]

Nerdbots, via Raj at R27. Very cool, and respect for finding a way to monetise their robot building. They’ve got a fold problem on their home page though (on my monitor, at least): It doesn’t invite scrolling down and I missed the robots. Take on me: Aha’s famous video with the lyrics replaced by a […]

The Guardian gives much-hyped new Star Wars game The Force Unleashed a lukewarm review. November’s Edge, which has arrived in the post today, is less circumspect and dispenses a 5: Lucasarts and ILM are handling the cinematic side, George Lucas himself has added his touch to the script, and when you press start for the […]

The difference between iCrossing, where I’m freelancing at the moment, and other new media agencies where I’ve worked, is that when someone finds something interesting on the internet they don’t say “that’s cool!”, they say “that’s going to get loads of links!”. Search is in the blood here, and there’s a lot for me to […]
