Essentially this is the first step toward the movie Avatar. Inform can also be used for 3D demonstrations rendering physical bar graphs, models and fluid tangible experiences. The inFORM was developed by MIT PhD students Sean Follmer, Daniel Leithinger, and Professor Hiroshi Ishii, from MIT’s Tangible Media Group. Revolutionary steps when thinking of physical form science and architecture, being able to shape and mold an object without even being in the room. “The traditional sort of interaction design and device design sort of assumes for a very static way of interacting and this [inFORM] device can change its physical form very quickly and that means that we need to come up with new ways that we interact with technology,” Follmer said. But All this didn’t come cheap the inFORM contains 900 small motors which control each pin on it. Every pin works to render objects in 3D, and each more »

  • Hypnotizing Commercial For Mike’s Golf Shop [Video]

    Mike of Mike’s Golf Shop in Chattanooga, Tennessee, made his own commercial where he lets you know that he buys golf. Did you get that? Don’t worry, he’ll repeat it again and again until that’s all you hear. Could he be the mastermind behind those Head-On commercials (apply directly to the forehead)? The original commercial, made last month on Mike’s iPhone, is now going viral but Mike feels his message may still not be clear. To rectify this, he has just released a video where he sings about buying golf clubs. Maybe he would be less confusing if he took down that “we buy music gear” sign.

  • Radical’s Street Legal Race Car, The RXC

    The Radical RXC is Radical’s first fully enclosed car made to be street legal for European roads. Using the Ford Duratec 3.7 liter V6 engine found in the Mustang and F150 tuned to 380 hp, this “road car” will get you around town at breakneck speeds. That horsepower may not sound too impressive but when you consider that the car weighs less than 2000 pounds, it’s plenty. The RXC goes 0-60 in 2.8 seconds and reaches a top speed of 175 mph. There are also plans for a V8 version if you’re still unimpressed. But for now, if you want to take home the V6 RXC, it’s going to cost you about $150,000. But hey, what are you waiting for? Start assembling yours right now at Radical.

  • The 12 Funniest Athlete Commercials of 2013

  • 5 Public Relations Lessons You Need To Know From The Late Great John F. Kennedy

    Politicians are excellent at a certain rhetoric device called “framing.” They know how to switch conversations to more favorable topics, they know how to avoid the ugly answers, and sometimes they can flip a public relations disaster into an underdog victory. On the 50th anniversary of his assassination, I’m going to show you how JFK did just that, winning over the audience as an underdog even after some sharp criticisms from Harry Truman.

  • Read JFK’s Harvard Application

    In 1935, a young John F Kennedy applied for admission to Harvard. In his application he wrote that “I would like to go to the same college as my father. To be a ‘Harvard man’ is an enviable distinction and one that I sincerely hope I shall attain.” Jeez, kiss up much? He listed his chief interests as economics and politics (go figure) and football and crew as sports he especially liked. Even better, though, is his father’s letter to the Harvard Dean. Joseph Kennedy writes that his son “has a brilliant mind for the things in which he is interested, but is careless and lacks application in those in which he is not interested. This is, of course, a bad fault.” Damn, that’s honest. Read through more digitized documents at the John F Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum.

  • World’s Largest Videogame Projected Onto London Building

The game measured in at 2,219 square meters. The stunt was to mark the 250th episode of The Gadget Show and the release of Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures. Is the giant joystick also necessary?

  • Own The Watch Used To Call JFK’s Time Of Death

    On November 22, 1963, neurosurgeon Dr. Kemp Clark was called to Parkland Memorial Hospital to see to President John F Kennedy. When all attempts at reviving the President proved futile, it was Dr. Clark’s duty to call the time of death. Unfortunately, nobody was really sure when President Kennedy died and nobody was looking at the clock anyway, so Dr. Clark made an approximation at 1:00 PM. Dr. Kemp’s family insists that he used his watch to make the call although Kemp himself is not on record as ever saying that. But witnesses agree he was at least wearing the watch. And hey, even without the history, the 1949 Patek Phillipe is the first waterproof watch the company produced. That’s got to be worth the estimated $100,000-$150,000, right? 

  • Preliminary Photos of Braves New Cobb County Stadium

    The Atlanta Braves new home will have it’s fair share of perks. Cobb County stadium will be the centerpiece of what is essentially a strip mall and I mean that in the most pleasent of ways. With a strip leading up to the stadium from Cobb Square called “Entertainment Way” one can only imagine the bars, restaurants and shopping that’s sure to make it’s way to Cobb. Although most of us we’re scratching our heads when the organization announced the relocation it seems like a better atmosphere for Chipper Jones to make a few bucks for an appearance at the Entertainment way Cracker Barrel. A huge perk in disguise for the new stadium is the subtraction of 10,000 seats to hold 41,000 now. Not many people realize the sheer volume of seats Turner held. The Braves we’re always criticized for not filling the stadium, so it’s good to see the suits wising up to a more intimate stadium. Coming in at 1/4 the amount of the new Yankee Museum/Stadium, Cobb County field seems like it’s on the right track to bring an optimal baseball experience to it’s fan base.
