Barcodes are on everything…barcodes can get boring. D-Barcodes in Japan has given barcodes a flair of fun and creativity. Awesome. I want a barcode quilted sweater now.

Amazing! A dude cuts off half an inch off his finger. His brother gives him this smelly powder (ExtraCellular Matrix) made of Pigs bladder to apply daily on the wound. 4 weeks later, his finger regrows fully, skin, vessels, nails, like new!
Bio engineering, natural engineering, surgery…man, what a crazy medical world!
Watch above or here.
Thought of the week: Does liability hinder innovation or is it worth the gamble?
- Very cool inspirational video about MASS INNOVATION!
- Sony Rolly…dancing spinning mp3 player.
- Cool Frisbee trick, if ya have a round wall to play with!
- First comes solid state hard drives, now solid state fans! sweeeeet!
- 16 extreme beds!
- Extreme stairs…(includes on of my projects from 2002)
- Google’s freaking amazing ZÃ¼rich office. (Be prepared to be jealous!)
Above image via. It’s a painting, but would be a cool graffiti placement.
-funny fake movie trailer for Minesweeper.

-The FAIL Blog …pretty funny! (thanks gordon) Reminds me of ICanHasCheezburgar.com
Watch his incredibly scary, questionable, perhaps world-changing glimpse into his new adventure in creating synthetic microorganisms or bio robots that eat up waste(perhaps carbon) and in return spawn out useful chemicals such as bio fuels! Seriously dangerous yet mind blowing!
I mentioned Van Jones awesome speech during my PopTech adventure last year and now it’s online, or watch it above!(22 mins) He has an incredible vision, a whimsical way in delivering and connecting everyday people to his message, and is one damn smart cookie. Basically, he talks about building a green economy to lift people out of poverty, and giving green jobs over jails! Give it a definite watch and pass it around!
As a designer, I’ve come to love, breath, and sketch through photoshop and illustrator because of Adobe! Besides their awesome software, Adobe’s recently uncovered a fascinating bug-like multi-lense product that snaps pics at various depths, allowing photographers to later decide the focal length. Basically, it gives 2 dimensional images a 3rd dimension….best part is that it’s an attachment, so, no new camera, just a new component to latch onto your gear to take some sweet images. Watch the video above which will give you a better sense of this awesomeness!
An awesome ad depicting how much carbon we pump into our tiny world.

“The smartpen is an advanced paper-based computer, with audio and visual feedback, processing capabilities, and built-in memory storage for handwriting capture, audio recording and applications. Users can capture and sync audio recordings to their handwritten notes and replay audio segments by tapping on what they wrote. The captured notes and audio in the smartpen can then be uploaded via docking station to a PC where they can be replayed, saved, searched or sent to others.
â€œThe Livescribe platform takes paper-based technology to a radical new level, integrating software applications with physical paper,” said Rodney Brooks, Director of MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory. “I see the smartpen as just the beginning for a new class of device with almost unlimited potential.â€
Reminds me of a concept I had way back in college, but hey, at least it’s real now to some extent.. very cool none the less.
I learned this week that 1 lump of coal equals 1 meg of data sent over the internet. Having this in mind, I sure do burn lots of lumps of energy on the net.

“While some say the world is flat, supercities are rising – vast, intensely urban hubs will radically redefine the world’s future macroeconomic and cultural landscape. Most of the world’s population right now lives and works in cities. Many more will. It’s critical to gain a truer understanding of what’s happening: the rise of supercities is the defining megatrend of the 21st century.
The mission of 19.20.21 is a multi year, multimedia initiative to collect, organize, and better understand populations effects regarding urban and business planning and its impact on consumers around the world. This 5+year initiative will deliver results via 5 channels: web (including mobile), television (broadcast and cable), print (magazines, books, and atlases), exhibits and seminars (virtual and onsite). This project will included 10 worldwide partners.”
Very interesting read. Give it a glimpse, it’ll take 2 minutes. I’m pretty excited about this project. If you want to help out, send them a note!
This is a first from what I know.. a TEDtalk available the day after the actual talk! Awesome! Hopefully this trend keeps up, besides the free LIVE session later today.
“Science educator Roy Gould and Microsoft’s Curtis Wong give an astonishing sneak preview of Microsoft’s new WorldWide Telescope – a technology that combines feeds from satellites and telescopes all over the world and the heavens, and builds a comprehensive view of our universe. (Yes, it’s the technology that made Robert Scoble cry.) Download this TEDTalk in high-def >>”
