Thanks to Usama for this one. Glasses that have interchangeable parts so you can choose a colour to match your mood or your fashion. The toulch ONE eyeglass system has a series of arms and nosepieces in a variety of colours and patterns. The website itself is pleasingly entertaining. They aren’t cheap of course, but […]
Simply too absurd not to blog. Apparently there’s a new luxury condo planned for Dubai which is designed to resemble an Apple iPod (I probably don’t actually have to brand tag that do i?).

This was just too funny not to post…rather a cause to pause for second thought if you are thinking about lighting up in a public washroom.
On the subject of impressive focus on detail, comes this amusing exercise…Mapping the various timelines in the collection of back to the Future movies to allow for the creation of alternate timelines due to time travel. This Wikipedia entry charts the various characters, their ancestors and particular events and attempts to portray all the skipping […]
Here’s a thought provoking piece of technology in action…but what is particularly intriguing is that it is replicating the human action of turning pages “so as to avoid having to damage the binding.” It of course begs the question over how user-defined the nature of the printed media is, but certainly represents a wonderful adaptation […]
