VR Sculpting Occulus Rift Hydra

Sculpting in VR is nothing new.  Actually, very little in VR is new, instead its what happens when things get lighter, faster, cheaper.   Back in the 90’s we could create sculptures and move walls around in VR but it was very cumbersome, lacked the high feedback fidelity required to really make sculpting in VR productive… Read More

Here is a great life hack.  If you do not need ice for your drinks, then put something else in there.  Like candy!  Of course you can put fruit or mochi or anything else that is small and taste good either frozen or just thawed.  I can see berries or grapes as well.  I wonder… Read More


I have been pretty harsh on Samsung basically asking why are they throwing everything but the kitchen sink onto a watch making it large and ugly.  And why have they not released a curved screen yet? Well they finally did.  And I think they got it mostly right this time. The Gear 2 S is… Read More

There is not a whole  lot to say here that the video does not say.  Seems Kevin Rose, founder of Digg, heard his down yelping in pain.  He comes out to see his dog and a raccoon fighting.  So what does bad ass Rose do?  He charges in dressed in his always fashionable boxes and… Read More

ford fiesta beach landing

Yes, a nice clean standard car review from the stodgy conservative folks at Top Gear.  The Ford Fiesta, even the green one, is not terribly exciting.  However, give enough resources and cooperative shopping mall, it can be done.  Still not sure how they convinced the Royal Marines to allow a beach landing during a what… Read More

Sigh. I just do not get Microsoft sometimes. Most of the time their commercials are ok, and now and again, they are just pointless fluff as their surface commercials.  Then their latest efforts, we go to dumb bordering on insulting. {Update:  According to TC, they are NOT going to end it. In fact, there is… Read More

Its travel time!  And like any traveler who lived in Oakland I’m worried someone is going to break into my place.  There are older tricks I use to try to reduce the risk, have friends stopping by, I have a timer that turns on and off the lights and TV.  The normal stuff for those… Read More


This is a great video for all those Portal fans out there. Now if you are asking; ‘What is Portal?’  It’s an addictive puzzle game where the player has a portal gun which opens two portals between surfaces, allowing players to literally walk through walls.  This is a bit of an over simplication, but watch… Read More

If you really like beautiful and interesting aquatic life , then this app is for you. Real Aquarium HD.  At the basic level, its a series of HD videos of various sea creatures chill’in (sorry) in the sea.  However, this app provide a second layer where you can learn about each sea creature you are… Read More

UnstoppableGorg is not out yet, but they did release a preview video. I like this. I like the variation of being able to move defensive weapons around, even if its just orbit. I also have to give them an upvote for the fun B movie horror flick theme. Fun. Unstoppable Gorg is a lovingly crafted… Read More

Well if you are the non trusting type, or actually do private investigations, or heck or your a spy, there is some cool stuff that dropped in my emailbox.  So again. with no comment or implied recommendation, here are some cool stuff that if you are using, well, I hope you have a good reason.… Read More

I’m sure how else to say but just microphone check as Groover kicks this jam with early holding the beat.  Ahhhh yeeaa..  The Sesame Street gang mix it up Beatie Boys Sure Shot. Its a great world with video editing becomes so easy that someone would take the time to make a music mashup like… Read More

I have put forth many times that Apple could kill off or make life REALLY hard for jailbreakers if they wanted to, but they don’t.  In this street interview by Haroon, Cydia Creator Jay Freeman talked a bit about how the new features in iOS 5 will not make jailbreak irrelevant nor are they trying… Read More

This just popped in my email today.  I’m going to download it later and mess around with it, but from what I’ve seen on YouTube, this app does a great job of creating cartoon like effects from iPhone videos.  Very impressive.  Check out the video at  the end of the post.  I’ll update this later… Read More

Here is my video recap of the 2011 Game Developers Conference.… Read More

Ever since back in the early days of jailbreak; we had drums, and guitars and (kinda) keyboards mixed in with a few other instruments.  Then came the wind apps, by blowing into the speaker,  a few karaoke apps and then voice autocorrect. They were all fun and all, however, this app EverydayLooper really shined when… Read More

It always seem to be the way with smart phones isnt it?  Just read in Gizmodo of a hack that will give you 320×480 resolution video at 30fps.  Sweeet.  And have a look at the video below.  Nice.  So what does this mean?  Well, depending on the GPS abilities of the Pre we could (perhaps)… Read More

So now we can get Qik from the Apple store, BUT no live streaming.  Piff..  However, Qik does have two cool features; it will upload the video automatically when you have stopped filming, and it will Geo tag that video.  Nice eh?  So its not live steaming, but if you are shooting is short bursts,… Read More

First off, I’m not your typical user, and if you read my blog you would know this; I use jailbreak and LOVE it. However, I also cannot resist experimenting with the iPhone, so once I felt satisfied I heard the jailbreak for 3.0 was relatively stable, I decided to go for it.  However, just as an… Read More

I’m not going to go over everything, you can find that anywhere.. I’m instead going to look at a few things that I think are really interesting… HTML5 support!  Why is this so important?  HTML5 is like having flash lite without the plug-in!  (I still wish I had flash though).  But take a look at… Read More
