Augmented Bus Stop

As a promotion for Pepsi Max a bus shelter in London was modified to make waiting a bit more interesting. They used technology to the shelter's wall into a fake window that appeared to show flying saucers, an attacking robot, and a loose tiger making their way down the street.

Cringeworthy Commercial

A Dutch beer company has created a truly awful advertisement for their fruit flavoured beer. The idea is that Elvis Presley, John Lennon, Tupac Shakur, Kurt Cobain, Marilyn Monroe and Bruce Lee are not really dead but living a relaxing life in a tropical paradise. Not only is it in poor taste but the acting and portrayal is truly horrible. As if a fruit flavoured beer wasn't bad enough.

Fast Beauty

In light of the recent #nomakeupselfie trend this seemed appropriate. Regular readers will know that I'm not really a fan of Microsoft or their products, but this advertisement for Windows 8 did make me laugh for more than one reason.

The Cubli is a 15 × 15 × 15 cm cube that can jump up and balance on its corner. Reaction wheels mounted on three faces of the cube can rotate at high angular velocities and are then able to brake suddenly, allowing the cube to perform its tricks.

Maher Rant

With the upcoming release of the movie Noah, starring Russell Crowe, comedian Bill Maher starts an hilarious tirade about it and the absurdity of religion in general. You know you're doing it right when you get Seth McFarlane laughing.

Kid President

YouTube sensation Kid President AKA Robby Novak is famous for his inspirational and often hilarious pep-talks. As it will soon be mother's day, I thought I'd feature his open letter to "moms". See the SoulPancake channel for more.

Barracking Barack

If you haven't seen the Funny Or Die web show called Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis, I suggest you take a look. He manages to get some pretty big names on to insult. This time though, arguably his biggest guest, President Barack Obama, gives as good as he gets. I love it when big names don't take themselves too seriously.

Bird Bot

A good TED talk is long overdue so thanks to my friend Al for pointing this one out to me.

Plenty of robots can fly -- but none can fly like a real bird. That is, until Markus Fischer and his team at Festo built SmartBird, a large, lightweight robot, modeled on a seagull, that flies by flapping its wings.

What Would You Do?

A US TV show that used some hidden cameras in a Texas restaurant filmed some surprising footage. Texas is not normally known for its tolerance of the gay and lesbian community but it seems that isn't always the case.
