Willow

This is very creative. A music video for the song "Sweater" by Willow uses three blank walls, a floor and three-way projection to simulate life. I can only imagine how disorientating this must have been for the singer but if you take a look at the out-takes you get an idea.

Dear Hahn

Australian beer brewer Hahn have produced a great set of adverts to promote the product. In an "agony aunt" type scenario drinkers ask Hahn to solve their beer related issues. My favourite is the anti-spill device below, but check out the full range here.

gAtari

This is not my kind of music but I love it when geekiness and creativity collide. An Australian musician performing under the pseudonym cTrix specialises in creating chiptunes using a combination of old games consoles. Here he takes a 1970's Atari 2600 (running custom-written sequencing software) and incorporates it into a guitar-style body, with a fretboard packed with Boss effects pedals and a great pun as a name — gAtari.

Fresh Guacamole

You might remember this video I posted about before. PES has now done a follow-up which is too good not to share. I hope you enjoy it.

Nature By Numbers

I'm sure you have heard of The Golden Ratio and The Fibonacci Sequence before, but if not check out the links for explanations. The following video shows in a very pleasing way how nature is often based on this magic formula and how it may well explain why we find nature so easy on the eye.

Apple Kills Star Trek

In light of recent legal action taken by Apple, it is clear that the crew of the USS Enterprise and indeed the whole of Star Fleet have good cause to worry.

A big thanks to Al for this one.

Pursuit Of Light

NASA has produced this rather impressive showcase of their aims and goals for the foreseeable future. They have called it "Pursuit of Light" and it really captures what NASA is all about for me. I recommend you watch it on full screen with your sound turned up.

Rolling In The Beats

A musical interlude for you today. A live mash-up of video and audio featuring 24 tracks. It has me bopping.

Fish Illusion

I'd love something like this in my home. Without any expensive technology involved the effect of fish swimming along a table top looks stunning.



This is a clever use of an optical illusion known as a Moiré Pattern. For more examples, see below.

Random Access Memory

Here is a nice animated short that nicely explains the dilemma students face when they're trying to use a computer to help them study. I don't know anything about the creators I'm afraid, so if you have any information please let me know.

Pencil It In

Although my artistic talents are quite limited, it never stops me trying. This short film featuring artists from last year's Toronto Comic Arts Festival talking about their favourite pencils is somehow very pleasing to me. Perhaps it is the simplicity of the subject and style or just the idea that I could do that (I really couldn't) but either way I hope you like it.

Egg Bet

OK so it is unlikely that you'll find yourself in a bar with an egg, but if you do, here's a great way to earn some money. Take a shot glass and place the egg carefully in to it. Bet any onlooker who will listen £10 that you can turn the egg over without touching it, or the glass. You can thank me later.

Tooned

I really like this series of cartoons that Sky have been showing on their F1 channel. This is episode one but if you've not seen them, be sure to check out the rest of them on YouTube. Fair play to Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button for not taking themselves too seriously.
