The sad thing is that I want one of these. I suspect they work pretty badly, but after trying out (and liking) a dance mat, I like the idea of taking that one step further and using an exercise machine to kill the denizens of Doom. I’m not sure it would work as well with stealth-like FPS’ though…
This is pretty insane. The Chinese have a magnetically levitated train that 140mph and was crippled on its first day by…a faulty wheel.
This hotel is pretty stunning for the price! I’ve already managed to steal the network cable from the web tv system, so should be no problem getting some work done. Looking forward to a swim later on though…
Having all my CDs backed up and digital has seriously changed the way in which I consume music. I can listen to it anywhere, and through any convoluted playlist of songs across my whole music collection that I can imagine.
Next step for me is definitely to do the same thing with my DVDs. I’m fed up with having to sit on the floor at the top of our stairs where the DVD shelf is, trying to remember what we own and then figure out where it is. I want the same flexibility and ease of choice with my movies that I now have with my music.
This article is a step in the right direction in terms of giving me the basics.
This is just a reminder for me to read this PDF on simple and painless ways of saving energy at home.
I don’t know why, but this conversion of a Boeing 727 into a 50 seat limousine is so stupid it must be nothing short of genius.
Just saw Hero, a martial arts movie very much in the vein of Crouching Tiger. This time, Jet Li takes the staring role (and does a great job at it – much better then his Western efforts to date), and the beautiful vidography seen in Tiger is ramped way up. Stunning color palettes signify different parts/versions of the story in reds, whites, greens and blues.
The story itself is set during the Emporer Qin’s rise to power (pronounced Chin). This is the same emporer that had the Terracotta Warriors made, and it was interesting having seen something of that era when Shannon and I were in Xi’An on our honeymoon.
Anyway, beautifully shot and choreographed, although with performances that perhaps weren’t quite as engaging as in Tiger (maybe this is just because the feel is now more familiar).
A re-release of the 1984 text adventure of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy from Infocom. This time in Flash with (simple) pictures.
