It’s a Book, by Lane Smith

November 22nd, 2010 · Comments Off

Graffiti Analysis 2.0

March 19th, 2010 · Comments Off

He was just finishing up his Masters at Parsons, doing incredibly beautiful work with digitization of graffiti and pulling funny pranks at US Post Offices. He was also running a personal project to become the #1 listing on Google for a unique string of […]

Turns out they have recently published a book commemorating 15 years of publishing. Lots to see here. Click on “View Fullscreen” in the area above to see all the […]

Digital Nation, Frontline

February 5th, 2010 · Comments Off

I came upon this program by chance a few nights ago. It’s worth a viewing, especially the (scary) part about the US military’s “Army Experience Center” where young people can play military-based video games for free in a state-of-the-art gaming (recruitment) centre. Frontline always has excellent complementary information on their website too.

The RADIO CANADA concept is a homage to the cultural significance of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. This radio console design was inspired by the dedication of the many CBC listeners who keep their radio dials permanently set to our national broadcaster.

R2-D2 Projector

May 1st, 2008 · Comments Off

via Gizmodo: We knew that there was a motorized, fully-articulated R2-D2 projector with built-in DVD, iPod dock, all kinds of digital media inputs, and Millennium Falcon remote control, but we never—EVER—imagined it would be so amazingly drooltastic as this video shows.
