Simplistic Typography Movie Poster Design

20 Simplistic Typography Movie Posters: Pure Genius

Once again, I want to visit the realm of movie posters. Yeah I know, I am quite a fanatic. The fact is that as long as people try to send a message through them, I will always check them out. We have touched on the subject of simplifying the meaning of movie posters before, and the more I look for them, the more simplistic they get. However, I think they can’t get much more simplistic than what I have found for you all today. The ...

RFID Tags Embedded In Food

Edible RFID Technology: Changing Our Perception Of Food

If you keep up with the latest evolving technologies, you are probably aware that RFID technology is huge right now. RFID is simply a tracking system that gives the reader information stored on a tag, which is attached to the object. If you are like me, you wondered exactly what the differences between RFID and barcodes are. After all, they seem very similar. I found the answer to that question in Difference Between RFID and Barcodes. Here’s where things get a little freaky… Edible RFID ...

Successful Blogging Tips and Strategies

5 Things Successful Bloggers Do Differently

We often see articles about the habits of successful people. Whether it’s waking up early in the morning, working hard, or even doing yoga, it seems many people have their own opinion about what breeds success in life. After reading another article this morning in the Harvard Business Review about successful habits, it got me thinking about the whole thing from a blogging perspective. Are there things that successful bloggers do differently than other bloggers? I’m fortunate enough to follow many very successful bloggers on ...

Tombstones With Custom QR Codes

Interactive Headstones: Bringing Technology To The Cemetery

I know this is a morbid thought, but what if we schedule some tweets, and then we die, and those tweets go out afterwards on schedule? They’ll literally be tweets from a ghost. I remember when Richard wrote about Webwill which is a service that streamlines all our social media so when we die someday, our prewritten last Facebook status and last tweet will go out to everyone. It’s creepy to even think about this stuff, but as social media becomes more and more popular, ...

Zero Gravity Office Magnet Balls

Zero Gravity Office: A Huge Magnet & Some Balls

As we have written about before, many offices tend to be tweaked towards geek activities nowadays, and that’s all fine. Here at Bit Rebels we look forward to the day when we have our very own office where all of us will be able to kick the geek afternoons off with a Nerf gun battle or a Nintendo NES best of three competition. Even though it might sound a little odd, it actually helps increase work morale. Business without fun is like having non-sugared ice ...

Most Popular Superpowers In World

World’s Most Popular Superpowers

With all the developing going on in the technology arena, and what we have been able to recreate from movies like Star Wars and Star Trek, I keep wondering when we will start to really enter the field of superpowers. There is definitely a need for it, and some advances have already been made, and by that, I of course mean the exoskeleton that keeps getting smaller and more powerful by the day. However, when are the really cool superpowers going to enter the the ...

Frequency Of Letters Being Pressed

How Frequently Each Letter Is Used On Your Keyboard

I am sure there is some kind of app or software out there that will help us keep track of all the characters we use on our keyboards throughout whatever time period we want. I know there are some plugins for WordPress that will keep track of how many words each author has typed in every article and gives the result on the front page of the dashboard. I installed it not too long ago, but had to uninstall it due to some compatibility issues. ...

Los Angeles Bronson Caves

Photography: Rainbow Ghosts Inside The Bronson Caves

I remember a few weeks ago when I wrote to you that I was going to try to write one photography post per day through the end of the month. Although a few days have gone by when I haven’t done that, for the most part, I’ve written about a collection of fabulous photographs or a creative photography technique each day. I did that so I could learn more about photography because it’s an art that I’m very interested in. I have learned more in ...

Why Humanity Is All Infographics

Why Humanity Is All About Infographics

Some people have asked us why we are so keen on publishing infographics here on Bit Rebels, and the answer is really simple. It’s because we believe that they have a huge knowledge value requiring the reader very little energy to acquire that knowledge. We want to educate our readers through short, bite sized articles where you will not only learn pointless information that someday will come to good use, but also stuff that keeps you evolving and refining yourself and what you do. An ...

Social Media Gurus Are Clowns

Almost All Social Media Gurus Are Clowns…

The title of this article may be quite a sting for some people, especially the social media gurus (or the ones that call themselves that). Whichever way you look at it though, it it’s actually true… at least according to Gary Vaynerchuk, the wine emperor who started from nothing, or almost at least. I have followed Gary through his starlit career, and it’s been an inspiring journey to say the least. The energetic speaker and businessman really knows how to shake a crowd both ways, ...

X-Wing Fighter Soapbox Car Design

Star Wars X-Wing Fighter Soapbox Derby Car

As a kid, my brother and I were always talking about the ultimate soapbox car, and how it would be built. We had a couple of runs building some, which to our amazement, were quite fast and cool. However, the designs were nothing that gave us bragging rights, but that of course didn’t matter to us. We rolled down the streets in those derby cars like we owned the road. Eventually the builds came undone since we always failed to secure the wheels properly, which ...

Retro Computer Disk Art

Recycled Floppy Disk Art: Retro Technology Gets A New Life

Of all the creative artwork I’ve written about on Bit Rebels over the past two years, this is definitely one of my favorites. It combines technology, painting, recycling and a human touch, all flavored with that retro feeling we love so much. I remember when I first saw the works of Nick Gentry. It was on this Lost At E Minor post by @NiniBaseema back in January. Since then, he continues to be recognized on blogs and in magazines all over the world. He refers ...

LED Technology Fashion Trend

LED Eyeshadow: Now You Can Look Like A Cyborg

I remember back in the days when LED lights were mostly just used as a tool to enhance technology. Whether it was an interactive billboard, a super geeky mod or even a fabulous light installation, LED lights were everywhere a few years ago. Then something interesting happened. Someone somewhere decided it would be fun to combine technology and fashion, and suddenly we started seeing LED lights incorporated into dresses and high heel shoes. One designer even took this trend to another level and created a ...

Dances For An iPhone App

Dances iPhone App: Modern Dance Meets Digital World

For the first time ever, a free app which exclusively highlights dance is now available for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users in the App Store. It’s called “Dances for an iPhone,” and although I’m not much of a dancer, after checking it out in more detail, I found it to be very well put together and truly inspiring. According to Elite Dance, “The app represents a new way to distribute dance, with the potential to introduce dance to a new public, in every ...
