Found Media


While doing some cleaning up of old boxes of media, I found a few piles of disks and discs worth documenting here for posterity’s sake before sending them to the city media recycler.

Check out the full images after the break (click for larger). If you can see the product ids, you can have em.

Check out the shareware disc Absolute Mahem with such awesome DOS titles as:

Doom- Knee Deep In The Dead
Corridor 7- Special Edition
Depth Dwellers- The Quest
Terminator Rampage- Special Edition
Shadowcaster- Special Edition
Catacomb Abyss
Nightmare 3-D
Raptor- Call Of The Shadows
Blake Stone- Aliens Of Gold

Incredible Phantom Miro 120 Footage

Action sports filmmaker Jim Geduldick was the first to get his hands on Vision Resesarch’s new Phantom cam, the Miro 120. This tiny super slo-mo cam is capable of 730fps at 1920×1080 or up to a staggering 200,000fps at lower resolutions.

Geduldick put the camera through its paces at Camp Woodward and came up with this pretty awesome demo reel. Check it out above.

The Wilderness Downtown

If there is one thing that will always get a blog post, it is an innovative interactive music video. You gotta seriously hand it to The Arcade Fire for their The Wilderness Downtown vid. A little Chrome + personalized G.Maps + HTML5 = very cool.

Thx Matt

Henry Jenkins and the Transmedia Project

Feed yer brain. Henry Jenkins is the co-dir of MIT’s Comparative Media Studies program and leader in field of Transmedia Stroytelling. There is some overlap here with some of the subjects touched on by Clay Shirky in his book Here Comes Everybody. I find myself fascinated by books and media that explore this forefront of the changing media and information landscape. Let me know if you have read/seen/x-casted anything lately that addresses this sort of thing.

Good find Seth.

WaterCube3D + MS Photosynth



Check out this awesome hi-res 3D View from inside the Watercube (actually from the top of the 10M platform). You can spin around, up and down in every direction while you listen to a few seconds of commentary from USA diver Thomas Finchum.

Do you think this sort of 3D thing is cool? Microsoft does. They have just released a web app specifically designed to allow you to create your own fully 3D image panos. Microsoft Photosynth is online (more info here) and allows you to upload your own images. I haven’t tried it out yet but plan to soon.

PsD = Photoshop Disasters


PsD loves to make fun of botched head replacements, shoddy reflections, oddly sized appendages, horrible movie poster, and girls without nipples – but my favorites are the images that just have extra body parts just hanging out – like this rather lonely hand.

Another fave – Kinda makes you think you could do it better yourself, huh?

Great site – mediocre writing.

PicLens – Amazing Firefox Plugin


Thanks to Danz for pointing me to this amazing Firefox plugin by the folks at CoolIris.

The plugin lets you view photostreams from flickr, picasa, facebook, etc. in a full screen tactile interface that blows away anything I have seen like it. Load up the plugin, hit a flickr photostream, and click the play button that appears when you hover over the first image. Amazing!

Binary Solo

the robot

This has been a really long time coming. Thank you for your patience.

This site is built on WordPress, a great free piece of software for highly customizable blogs. I hope to use the site as a homepage, a weblog, a place to share all the funny shit we find on the web, etc. The site is all designed from scratch in fireworks and written by hand in css (thx to the early assist from che – w00t!). I have tried to do as much cross browser testing as possible, but things are bound to slip through. If you see any weird behavior or graphical glitches pls email them to me.

Explore the site (tho there’s not much yet). You can leave comments for any post. The forum is still up and running. I hope to do to a big update over there too someday soon.

Thanks for stopping by and please let me know what you think of the site.
