Praga Khan In Second Life

01 Mar 2007

For those who missed it, the Praga Khan concert that was streamed from the Atomium (Brussels) at of the launch of Windows Vista in Second Life can be seen again in Second Life as of tonight. Bert from One Agency talked to the guys over at Rambla and they’re hosting the stream, which is super swell. If you’re up for a concert, come on over. It’s free. If you can’t find it, IM Coolz0r Courier, and I’ll teleport you there. :)

Le Bureau

27 Feb 2007

Looks like our French neighbors have adapted Ricky Gervais’ concept and they started making ‘Le Bureau’ last year. The setting is Villepinte, a business park in the northeast suburbs of Paris. The series stars François Berléand as Gilles Triquet, France’s version of David Brent. Another notable actor, Jérémie Elkaïm, also stars in the series playing the French version of Tim Canterbury. Filming with the French cast was completed in early February; the series began airing on May 25. A second season is already in the works and the writer-director duo of Nicholas and Bruno say at least one show will focus on a French perennial: strikes.

Post-It StopMotion

25 Feb 2007

If it’s true that companies should embrace the consumer generated things people do and publish while using their product, the way Coca-Cola and Mentos embraced the geyser effect, then I think these guys are entitled to a life-long stock of free Post-it notes. It’s not the best stopmotion ever, but it’s fun to see what you can do with a pack of simple sticky notes and a large window.

Ricky Gervais On The O&A Show

13 Feb 2007

Four parts of goodiness with Ricky Gervais and Opie & Anthony. Totally. The movies are short, and basically Opie & Anthony just interview Ricky Gervais, but it’s good laugh :) – Take a 15 minute break to learn a little more about David Brent, the enfant terrible of middle management and the man behind him.

The Hug Shirt

30 Dec 2006

The Hug Shirt is a Bluetooth accessory for Java enabled mobile phones. Hug shirts don’t have any assigned phone number, all the data goes from the sensors Bluetooth to your mobile phone and your mobile phone delivers the hug data to your friend’s phone and it is seamlessly transmitted Bluetooth to his or her shirt!
Sending hugs is as easy as sending an SMS and you will be able to send hugs while you are on the move, in the same way and to the same places you are able to make phone calls (Rome to Tokyo, New York to Paris).

The system is very simple: a Hug Shirt (Bluetooth with sensors and actuators), a Bluetooth java enabled mobile phone with the Hug Me java software running (it understands what the sensors are communicating), and on the other side another phone and another shirt. If you do not have a Hug Shirt but know that your friend has one you can still send them a hug creating it with the HugMe software and it will be delivered to your friend’s Hug Shirt!

The Hug Shirt

The Hug Shirt is not meant to replace human contact, but to make you happy if you are away for business or other reasons and you miss your friends and loved ones! It also has some very interesting applications in the medical field with the elderly and children. And is fun to use and very soft!

Tadeo Jones Short

28 Dec 2006

As much as I loved Till Novak’s delivery, I must say I’m really fond of this little short film as well. It’s well on its way to collect the 50th (!) award and it’s a very impressive piece of creativity. Tadeo Jones is an adventurer like Indiana Jones (no family though) and he’s exploring some sort of ancient Egyptian site in search of the treasure. On his way to the treasure room and back he runs into all sorts of curious and dangerous situations. This is definitely a must-see!

The Office US, Season 2

26 Dec 2006

Allrighty, here is the entire second season. I couldn’t pospone the searching, I just had to have my daily dose. There’s something odd about all the episodes though. NBC’s list is only 19 episodes long, but when I look around, I find way more then the ‘official’ list lines up. Pretty weird and quite hard to figure it out, so I’ll just add ‘the extras’ after the ones I could place based on the episode archive from NBC. Also, unfortunately, there’s a two second delay in the second episode. That’s too bad and I haven’t found an alternative file online… The Valentine’s episode, in case you haven’t already watched it, has a nice twist I think. And I really laughed a lot with ‘The Injury’ as well. These guys did a very good job, I’m glad I finally got to watch the entire series, all at once. Oh, and FYI, the gift Dwight has gotten from Angela for his Valentine Day is on sale in the NBC store. Have fun :)
