  • Playing God: Augmented Reality Sandbox Lets You Build And Destroy Your Own Little Islands

    Playing God: Augmented Reality Sandbox Lets You Build And Destroy Your Own Little Islands
    augmented-reality-sandbox.jpg This is a demonstration of an augmented reality sandbox with real-time topographic line generation. Basically the system automatically adjusts the topography lines and color depending on the altitude of the sand in a particular area. I could play with that for hours. Or at least a couple minutes. *builds up island* Dammit villagers, I demand a sacrifice or I will sink you to the bottom of the sea! Somebody, anybody -- jump in this volcano. I'm waiting. That's it! *destroys island with a sweep of an arm* Wow, that was actually pretty fun. And look -- there was treasure buried under the island! "Pretty sure that's a cat turd." This is why I hate sandboxes. Keep going for the video.

    He's Floating!: Surfer Laird Hamilton Rides Giant Waves With Hydrofoil Surfboard
    hydrofoil-surfing.jpg This is a video of big wave surf legend Laird Hamilton riding some waves on a surfboard with a hydrofoil attached, so it rises up out of the water when it gets up to speed. Personally, you'd never catch me in the ocean with ANYTHING strapped to my feet. That's like, a death sentence. That surfboard might as well be cinderblocks because I'm a goner.

  • Hoodies With Drawstrings You Can Smoke Weed Out Of

    Hoodies With Drawstrings You Can Smoke Weed Out Of
    smoking-hoodies.jpg VapRwear and Hood HorkerZ are hoodies with drawstrings that serve as vaping/smoking devices. The VapRwear hoodie (~$100, includes vape pen) has a mouthpiece on one end, and connects to a vaporizer on the other (which fits in front pocket and can vape juices, oils and wax -- dry herb model coming soon). The Hood HorkerZ hoodie (~$125) has a glass mouthpiece on one end, and a glass bowl on the other. Both were designed to smoke conveniently and discreetly. Me? I like to smoke as indiscreetly as possible. Gosh, I sure hope there aren't any cops around CAUSE I AM ABOUT TO SMOKE SOME WEED OVER HERE. I'm kidding, I don't even smoke weed. Or do I? Maybe I do. Whatever you think is probably the answer. The wrong answer, so the opposite of that. OR IS IT? I am like an enigma wrapped in a Phillie blunt. "Nobody cares." My parents might! Keep going for a couple shots of the VapRwear hoodie.
  • Scenery In Car Commercial Changes Right Before Your Eyes, But You Don't Notice it

    Scenery In Car Commercial Changes Right Before Your Eyes, But You Don't Notice it
    car-commercial-attention-stealing.jpg This is a commercial for the Skoda Fabia in which they argue the car is so attention stealing that you won't notice the scenery changing. Obviously, the fact you don't notice the scenery changing has nothing to do with the car, and everything to do with the constant cuts in the video, and using movement to focus your attention in different areas. Still, I always think it's weird when car companies try to advertise boring ass cars like they're actually amazing looking. Don't focus on the looks -- focus on the gas mileage or airbags or electric windows. I feel like I'm being lied to. Because I can't imagine a single person that would look at the Skoda Fabia and think, "Damn, hopefully I don't see one of those on the road because I might get so distracted I crash!" I guarantee you could time-travel somebody here from the 1700's who's never even seen a car before and even they wouldn't take a second look. Keep going for the video.
  • Two Dudes Doing Battle With Metal Whip-Swords (Urumi)

    Two Dudes Doing Battle With Metal Whip-Swords (Urumi)
    whip-sword-battle.jpg This is a video of two guys performing a choreographed battle with urumi, or metal whip swords. How they both didn't cut their own legs off is beyond me, but I suspect they're trained professionals and not just two guys they picked up off the street and offered $20 to kill each other. Per Wikipedia:
    The urumi is a sword with a flexible whip-like blade from India. Originating in the country's southern states, it is thought to have existed as far back as the Maurya dynasty (~322-185 BC). The urumi is considered one of the most difficult weapons to master due to the risk of injuring oneself. It is treated as a steel whip, and therefore requires prior knowledge of that weapon. For this reason, the urumi is always taught last in the Indian martial arts.
    Obviously, I just ordered some urumi online and have every intention of challenging my roommate to a battle to the death. What he doesn't know though is his urumi is actually just going to be a strip of cardboard covered in tin foil. Provided I don't accidentally kill myself, I think I've got this. Keep going for the video, then go grab a metal tape-measure and practice yourself at home.
