Kinect Hack matrix Music Video

Kinect Hack Used To Create Stunning Music Video

I have previously touched on the subject of creative music videos, and how they are made.  Some people do what everyone else does, and some just hit the ball out of the park.  It’s a pleasure when that happens since I think the stereotype movie creators tend to throw too many safe cards around themselves.  With a closed and narrow mind, you won’t be able to break an artist into a world where everything is viewed from how awesome something is.  At least I would ...

Facts And Infographics About Infographics

Funkadelic Facts About Infographics

I read somewhere once that an infographic is worth 1,000 words. It’s true. Why are infographics so popular? I’m seeing them everywhere, more and more. We’ve even started using them a lot here on Bit Rebels. There must be a reason for it, right? Why this sudden interest in graphics that provide information? As I often do when I ask myself these questions, I went on a mad dash to find out everything I could about the topic. People love infographics because if they are ...

Photography: A Woman Breaks Out Of Her Shell, Literally

There comes a time in every girl’s life when she transitions into being a woman. With that new role comes a whole new set of responsibilities, expectations, and many times, a whole new life. Some women adjust to this change better than others. I touched on this a little in an article called Celebrate Being A Woman – Every Day Of The Month. At some point though, most women finally “break out of their shell.” I’ve gone through this, and I’ve watched both of my ...

University Creates Biggest Touchscreen Ever

The World’s Largest Touchscreen

Holy batman, now that’s a touchscreen! I’m going to tell you the size of this thing immediately because I know that’s what you really want to know, right? It is 10 meters (32.8 feet) by 2.8 meters (9.2 feet). The screen uses 1,000 LEDs and 6 Optitrack cameras. The resolution is 4900 by 1700 pixels. Its shape is curved, and it can track 100 people touching it at once. The University of Groningen in the Netherlands created this badboy in their school’s 3D theater. Their ...

Body Painting On Lips

Body Painting: Colorful Kissable Animal Lip Artistry

‘Tis the season of lips, kissing and love.  Now that I think about it, when is it not the season of those things? Although I’ve never had cosmetic surgery to make my lips bigger, I’ve definitely been known to hang out in the bathroom from time to time with a bag of sugar and a lemon wedge, doing what it takes to make them look big. I think as women, our lips are really the only part of our body (except maybe our bootie) that ...

Use Twitter Facebook For Valentine's

Whew! Social Media Saves Valentine’s Day

Here we are, it’s February 11th. If you have not gotten your sweetie a gift for Valentine’s Day yet, it’s probably a good time to start thinking about it. Personally, I think Valentine’s Day is overrated. If we love someone, we should show him or her everyday, don’t you think? To have it all come down to how nice the gift is on February 14th seems a little silly. I’ve always thought a sentimental gift on a random Tuesday was much more romantic, but that’s ...

Benefits of Positive Twitter Tweets

6 Benefits Of Being Positive On Twitter

As you know if you follow me, I’m on Twitter everyday.  I love Twitter, I love my friends on Twitter, and I write about Twitter often.  Twitter is a huge part of my life, it is my happy place, and it’s full of positive people who send positive tweets.  I’m sure some people might disagree with me about that, but just remember that each person’s Twitter experience is different. Even though I have over 36,000 followers (of which I’ve followed 33,000 back – by hand), ...

Volkswagen Star Wars Commcercial Bloopers

Vader Unmasked: Star Wars Volkswagen Commercial Bloopers

The Volkswagen Star Wars commercial with the Baby Darth Vader Discovering The Force that I wrote about a week ago and that blasted during the Super Bowl this year has become an instant hit and a viral video on the Internet.  The first time I saw it, I thought it was the best commercial in a very long time.  Maybe that’s because I am such a huge Star Wars fan and, of course, because the little dude in that huge helmet does a kick ass ...

Unusual Women's Boots For Winter

Unusual Boot Collection: Would You Wear Them?

I’m from a tropical country (Manila, Philippines), and we rarely wear boots since they can get pretty warm.  However, after moving to a country that has four seasons (the States) and moving during the winter season, I needed to do some serious shopping for boots, and I am glad I did.  Wearing them really helps keep my feet warm, especially during the times when I need to walk in snow and on ice.  I totally enjoyed shopping for my snow boots in Hong Kong last ...

Facebook Or Twitter: 2010 Study Breaks It Down [Infographic]

It’s been the holy grail of questions for marketers and business owners for quite some time now.  Since running a company limits time for social networking interaction, it’s important to know what service to use before you completely immerse yourself in the world of social media.  Facebook and Twitter are quite different from each other, and knowing what they can offer has been somewhat of a trial and error process.  It helps to do some research to see what each platform lacks, and what each ...

Online Tools For When Traveling

5 Online Tools & Gadgets For Those Far Away From Home!

It has been almost a month now that I have been away from home.  For me, home is Manila, Philippines, but right now my temporary home is in Cincinnati, Ohio.  I must say, being far away from home, if you are close to your family, can be hard if communication is difficult.  I am glad that I left home at a time when technology is available.  I am pretty close to my family, we always used to go out and spend a lot of time ...

Social Media History Before Twitter

The Social Media World Before Twitter And Facebook [Infographic]

A world without Twitter or Facebook seems distant and almost non existent. Yet still there was a time, long ago (hrmm..), when they didn’t exist. As a matter of fact, Facebook didn’t even exist 8 years ago and Twitter even less. So, if you feel like you’ve been using Twitter or Facebook for ages, well then you’re wrong. Some say Social Media was invented at the same time as the Internet was. The reason why is because at that point we all got a forum ...

Star Wars Retold In Iconscope

Star Wars: A New Hope Retold In 32 Icons

There are many ways to explain the story of Star Wars, and no matter how you tell it, people are always going to be fascinated by the science fiction world. I think I have seen everything from YouTube clips of clueless people trying to tell the story of Star Wars, to complete pocket comic books retelling it. I always enjoy the way people see this huge adventure differently. The characters seem to have their own individual lives in a galaxy far far away, for real ...
