A real product. With a proper website. I think this guy found a corner in the market.
Check out his introvid on the site.
After a well deserved break, I’m back with my useless posts!
Very cool. You can view the film and drag the image around 360 degrees.
Interesting concept piece (although this piece suggests facial recognition there’s probably an easier way of doing it)
Nice music video from Japan. It’s lovely how many different results you can achieve using a simple webcam…
Working on the simple mechanic of showing tilt shift video of Japanese scenerey which, on interaction, is replaced with tiles showing items of clothing match the colour of the space replaced (crap explananation – visual below).
As always, you can always go through to buy. Another exmaple of Uniqlo’s ability of subverting navigation and usability for an eccomerce site that replicates the real world feeling of rummaging through rails of clothes and having an item catch your eye. And it’s on brand. Simple with a twist.
If you haven’t seen this yet. It’s bad, its funny, its easy to use.
This website is 100% youtube based:
Very good indeed!

Beautiful short film by Chris Milk submitted for the Dream Film Festival in Beijing.
I Love Alaska is a series of mini-documentaries over at minimovies.com by Lernert Engelberts and Sander Plug based on the 2006 incident when personal search queries of 650,000 AOL users were accidentally leaked on the interwebs and actually made me go a bit weepy while watching it last night (then again, I am a big softie).
Synopsis: “I Love Alaska” tells the story of one of those AOL users. We get to know a religious middle-aged woman from Houston, Texas, who spends her days at home behind her TV and computer. Her unique style of phrasing combined with her putting her ideas, convictions and obsessions into AOL’s search engine, turn her personal story into a disconcerting novel of sorts.
Over a period of three months, a portrait of a woman emerges who is diligently searching for likeminded souls. The list of her search queries read aloud by a voice-over reads like a revealing character study of a somewhat obese middle-aged lady in her menopause, who is looking for a way to rejuvenate her sex life. In the end, when she cheats on her husband with a man she met online, her life seems to crumble around her. She regrets her deceit, admits to her Internet addiction and dreams of a new life in Alaska.
