    the moon
    Gear  |  Video  
    This video will make you think twice about how we see things. "The prop in the video may look like an oversize checkerboard, but the squares are actually the same color." Check out the video.
    "The illusion works because of the "shadow" that falls on the checkerboard. Lets think of the square that the shadow falls on. Now picture that the shadow doesnt exist, you would see a light colored square surrounded by the dark colored squares. But when the shadow falls on top of that light colored square, the shadow causes the shade to become darker but it also causes the surrounding darker squares to become darker. So within the shadow region the brightness and darkness of the squares are still relative to one another. But they are no longer relative to the squares that lie outside of the shadow.
    So if you were able to pick up the middle square and move it to one of the outside dark squares, they would be 2 different shades, But the trick is ..that when you move the square you are moving it WITH the shadow still printed on the square. So now you've moved it out of its relative area, outside of the shadow region (but with the shadow still printed on the square) ..to the area where it's the same shade as the "dark" square. "

    TableDrum App Turns Your Incessant Finger Drumming Into Actual Drum
    Gear  |  Apple  

    The Table Drum Augmented Audio application allows iOS device users to turn that acoustic finger pounding into digitized drum sounds, in real time. The app works like a drum pad but instead of tapping the screen to trigger samples, it uses the microphone to listen for taps from your fingers. It’s smart enough to distinguish between 4 different sounds too. So the sound of your finger tapping the dinner table could be used to trigger a high hat sound, while the clink of your fork on your glass could trigger a kick drum sound.
    It's available now from the iTunes Store for US$3.99 .

    Maxwell von Stein, a 22 year-old Cooper Union graduate, built a bicycle that uses a flywheel to store energy. Instead of braking, he will slow the bicycle down by transferring the kinetic energy from back wheel into the flywheel—which spins between the bars of the frame. When he needs an energy boost, he will be able to send the flywheel energy back to the wheel. Check out the video of Flywheel Bicycle.
    Google to Buy Motorola Mobility for $125 Billion
    Gear  |  News  
    In a bid to strengthen its mobile business, Google is buying up Motorola Mobility (the Motorola cellphone business) for $40 a share in cash, or $12.5 billion...by far Google’s largest ever for an acquisition — is 63 percent above the closing price of Motorola Mobility shares on Friday.
    “This is an emphatic exclamation point that Google is a mobile company,” said Ben Schachter, an analyst with Macquarie Capital. “This is clearly a defensive deal, they were backed in a corner and they had to protect the Android platform.” [ link ]

    Espresso Solo
    Gear  |  Projects  
    Espresso Solo is a conceptual project made from a concrete case and metal working parts. I love this style.
    "My 'espresso solo' project is a conceptual project. Called Espresso Solo, the conceptual product features metal working parts and a concrete case. The espresso machine makes only espresso: short and long. The design process begun in choosing the material: I choose concrete. I had a vision: concrete in the kitchen, not only as a wall or decorative part, I wanted it to be a desirable consumer product. The contrast between the roughness, massiveness and hardness of the concrete and the fine metal parts, which are dealing with the coffee preparation process, was very challenging and interesting for me.
