This is a video introduction to JIBO, a home robot designed to become part of your family and help everyone throughout the day. The robot, which is Wi-Fi connected, can track faces, take pictures, search the internet, tell stories, watch you while you sleep...(watch the video) The robot is currently an Indiegogo project but has already met 10x its goal, so $500 will get you one when they ship late next year. It looks so cool!
The IcyBreeze cooler is a portable air conditioner. Fill it with ice and it keeps drinks cold all day long, but add a little water and extend the hose on top and suddenly it becomes a portable cordless air conditioner. "Built into the IceBreeze's hinged lid is a radiator that sucks up icy cold water from the bottom of the cooler and uses it to chill air being pumped through the system by a three-speed fan. The cold air leaving the flexible tube is guaranteed to be up to 35 degrees colder than the air outside the cooler, and on its lowest fan setting it can run for up to seven hours on its rechargeable battery."
The Vermont Novelty Toaster Corp. sells custom toasters that can toast the image of a person’s face into bread. They turn the customer’s high resolution photo into a metal plate with the help of Photoshop and a CNC plasma cutter. The plate is then fitted into a special toaster for the final toasting effect.
‘The Myriad Monikers of Gotham’s Villains 2.0′ by Pop Chart Lab. "Just in time for the Dark Knight’s 75th anniversary, our fearsome taxonomy of Gotham’s rogues gallery has returned to strike again! Featuring an all new pulp-inspired design, this 12″ x 16″ chart is a veritable Who’s Who of knaves and ne’er-do-wells, and categorizes by name nearly every one of Batman’s colorful combatants–from big-time baddies like the Joker and Mr. Freeze, to lesser-known lawbreakers like the Walrus, Batzarro, and Larry the Judge."
From Bettina: This Guide is our graduation project at the University of Applied Sciences and Arts. It’s a motion graphics piece for zombies and should help them survive. Being undead can be difficult. Your arms and legs tend to rot and fall off. So what do you do? Our film shows the beginning of the infection, the development of the zombie and how to behave as newly undead. Thanks to George A. Romero for being such a great director of many awesome zombie movies.
