Tweet The site takes the latest YouTube view count and extrapolates the view/second rate based on the previous viewcount change - it's impressive to see just how many views the video is getting! It is widely believed that Gangnam Style will pass the one billion view mark on the 21st December 2012. Strangely coinciding with the Mayan prediction for the end of the world.
Tweet This is the best thing I'v ever seen from Microsoft, and I'm not talking about Windows. This little film is brilliant, and cute. Is Windows 8 really that simple? Find out the answer in a surprisingly simple stunt that took place in December 7th, in a Fnac store in Lisbon. The moment speaks for itself.
Tweet Fantastic Delites created a human mouse lab experiment to see how far people were willing to go on a human size running wheel, just to get a free packet of Fantastic Delites.
Tweet A Hankook Tire competition in the US has challenged some of the country's brightest industrial design students to imagine the role of tyres in automotive design from new angles. The winning entry by University of Cincinnati student Ben Zavala took the brief somewhat literally, with his Tiltread car tyre rolling into corners at an angle like a motorcycle tyre. Zavala's breakthrough idea was to split the tyre into three parallel ring sections, each mounted on a corresponding split section of wheel. As the wheel turns and leans, the three tyre sections are individually raised or lowered, allowing them all to maintain traction with the road surface. Tiltread's wheels are hubless and contain an electric drive motor which varies power to each tyre section, allowing the sections to spin at different rates during cornering.
Tweet Here it is again, the Google Zeitgeist, summarising the years most popular searches in a great video round-up. So what featured this year? Well Red Bull did pretty well as always, but they really smashed it this year, becoming the opening and closing pieces of content. Meanwhile, just about everything you’d expect made it in, along with a few pieces that you would have thought wow, how’d that make it! Click here to enjoy the full Google Zeitgeist 2012 site.
Tweet Swedish Post are famous for huge Xmas installations, in fact you probably remember last years ‘Xmas on Wheels‘ installation created in a huge warehouse that allowed users to shoot their own photos of a real life nativity set. Probably the benchmark for all Xmas creative pieces in 2011. So in 2012, they’ve back it up with this, Swedish Post Parcel Memory, played out live at a huge scale of 240m2, complete with 400 presents. Match two of the same, and you win both. Very cool! http://parcelmemory.com
Tweet This is blind-since birth Tommy Edison. Tommy was presumably named after famous inventor Thomas Edison, who was born not only blind, but with the head of a lizard. "Stop rewriting history." Haha, I'm hoping some kid doing a school report reads this and mistakes it for truth. HE INVENTED iPODS. This is a two minute video of Tommy trying to explain color. It's pretty interesting to hear what he has to say. Short story even shorter: basically, he has no concept. It would be like me trying to explain what the embrace of a woman who isn't my mom feels like.
Tweet Hands up if you’ve got a 3D printer? Most of the ones you can get your hands on are pretty low-res and print liquid plastic. So what happens when you create a pop-up store with a high-end powder based 3D printer? Well, you create the world’s first 3D printing photo booth… Made by the guys at PARTY, this pop-up store allows people to be mapped in high-definition 3D before being printed between 10cm and 20cm tall in full colour, to proive a semi-realistic 3D printed version of yourself to take home… All for about $250 bucks! Not bad huh? VIA Digitalbuzz
