Hasbro goes 3D

The other day i thought to myself 'i wonder if they'll make a 3D iphone...'

Thanks to Hasbro, iPhone users dreams have come true. They've created a pair of 3D glasses which has a slot for you to insert your iPhone or iPod touch. What's even better is the glasses are gonna cost about thirty bucks. Good times.

Bra's not as we know them

Bra ads always make me look twice but this one got a second glance for other reasons. Really nice campaign.

Interactive wall from Honda

On Friday the Australian Motorshow began in Sydney, they featured multiple vehicle launches including the all new Ranger from Ford.

Check out this interactive installation from Honda, pretty cool stuff. It uses facial recognition software so it can detect what gender you are, how old you are, and by the lines on your face what mood you are in. Then it tries to make you happy.

Get on a Jellybean

I've never been a fan of riding bikes. Brings back bad memories of riding home in the hail from secondary school.

When i bought my first car one of the first trips I made was taking my old bike to the dump.

But then, I came across these little gems. A website where you can build your own custom bike and they don't charge you an arm and a leg. Sounds good to me.

Check them out for yourself; Jellybean Bikes

Things look great from far away

I recently went on a trip back to my home city of Christchurch in New Zealand and everything was as i remember it. 2 weeks later the 2nd biggest earthquake NZ has ever seen struck the land and the hearts of my friends and family.

On a lighter note, look how beautiful it looks from space. NASA Colonel Douglas Wheelock, based on the International Space Station, claims to be the first space based twitterer and has specialised in turning out the kind of landscapes only astronauts can come up with.

He posted this picture 2 days ago not knowing the devastation that really lay below.
