The Art of Brick

Some artists use paint, others bronze – But for Nathan Sawaya he chooses to build his awe-inspiring art out of toy building blocks. LEGO® bricks to be exact. With more than 1.5 million colored bricks in his New York studio, Sawaya’s sculptures take many forms. Sawaya’s art is currently touring North American museums in a show titled, The Art of the Brick. It’s the only exhibition focusing exclusively on LEGO as an art medium. The creations, constructed from nearly one million pieces, were built from […]

Twitter In Real Life | Taking Twitter to The Streets

Are we all just a bunch of stiffs ans squares? Are we all to afraid to make a fool out of ourselves? Are we just simply too scared to say things out loud and instead use Twitter as a relief for everything we want to say? Sometimes it sure seems like it. Even though a lot of people are more than socially skilled they still use Twitter to say what’s on their minds. Well, fortunately Twitter wouldn’t have been as big as it is if […]

Biggest Waterslide On Earth, Real or Hoax?

Three weeks ago, another wild and crazy video hit the internet like a freight train. Since that day, it has received over 2,600,000 views. What’s all the fuss? It is the biggest waterslide on earth being tested, successfully! In this 45 second video you can view someone flying over 100 feet in the air and landing in a small blue kiddie pool. Although this looked like great fun and we all wanted to believe it was true, the question everyone immediately began asking was, “Is […]

It’s All About The Packaging

The mix tape or in some countries it was called the cassette tape is a device that was used to record anything from sound bites to music.  When I see one of these I just can’t stop being nostalgic. So if you miss the 80’s and making mix tapes, this product will inspire you again! A great concept, the Mix Tape USB Drive uses the mix tape as inspiration for its packaging and case.   You see its just all about the packaging. It is […]

Go Ahead and Just Doodle!

Doodling is one of my favorite past times.  It doesn’t have to be anything structured just draw anything that you feel like in random topics.  Sometimes I create stories but most of the time, I take my favorite pen and doodle. i think its a great way to practice sketching. A doodle is a type of sketch, an unfocused drawing made while a person’s attention is otherwise occupied. Doodles are simple drawings that can have concrete representational meaning or may just be abstract shapes. Here […]

The Secret to Anti-Gravity Revealed

Well, it’s not entirely true. However, there are some interesting thoughts on how to achieve it if someone has the enourmous resources and dedication it would take to unlock the secret. It’s not so much about if it is possible, said by scientists, but how long it will take to go through all the trial and errors needed to find the right combination of substances and technology. Even though it might sound and look like pure science fiction it highly plausable that someone in the […]

Alyssa Milano Rocks On Twitter

It’s always interesting to me to watch how celebrities use Twitter. As we all know, most celebrities tweet about one topic: Themselves. Although I, along with everyone else, am a bit curious, it gets old quick. Every now and then you run across celebrities like @kathyireland and @collective_soul who interact a bit with their followers, which is rare. Even more rare is a celebrity who builds relationships and who really understands and appreciates how special Twitter is. It’s quite unusual to find a celebrity who […]

Rubik’s Cube Wonder!

Here is one cool packaging idea the Rubik’s Cube Font generator. The handiwork of Jas Bhachu of the Liverpool School of Art & Design, the cube has rubber stamp impressions on four of its sides, and by twisting it through different orientations can create a variety of characters. Inside the packaging there’s the cube itself, an ink pad and the instructions, which show all of the different arrangements which can be used to make letters and numbers.  It’ll be time-consuming and laborious, of course, not […]

Paper iPhone?!

You wouldn’t believe it, but the iPhone you see here is actually made of paper.  Yes found an old article from Gizmodo, wherein a subscriber sent in a PDF file on how to build one.  Here is what the article says. “A faithful reader by the name of Matt J. made a paper craft iPhone for you to print out and assemble at home with some scissors, scotch tape, and a little love. Maybe you can use it as a case for your nano/phone until […]

Worlds Most Expensive Commercial – Part 2

So, my article “Worlds Most Expensive Commercial Ever” made quite a stir when it was published. It was because of two things that the discussions started. Was it “CG enhanced or not” and was it really the “most expensive commercial ever“. Well, on the first point I have yet to see some true evidence that it was NOT cg enhanced in anyway. Some say there are plenty of proof in the “behind the scenes” footage of that commercial however I have unfortunately not seen it […]

World Record For Most T-Shirts Worn At Once

A few weeks ago we posted an article here on bitrebels entitled “How to Fold a T-Shirt in 2 Seconds.” I thought that article was great because it offered a very entertaining 24 second video that I couldn’t stop watching over and over. In keeping with the T-Shirt theme, I’ve found another entertaining T-Shirt video for your viewing pleasure. This video features Matt McAllister of KNIX in Phoenix, AZ setting the Guiness World Record for the most T-Shirts worn at once in 2006. At the […]

Embedded video… in a printed magazine!

Well we all knew it was coming, technology has been heading this way for a while and finally its hear.  Now the opportunities with this kind of media I believe are obviously limitless.  You have the best of both worlds, one the physical “held in your hand” nice feeling of printed media and the ability to speak or present moving images and sound to your readers. What do you think? Will this help or hinder the print business, or will it just be over ridden by the […]

RSS Feed Inspired Design

RSS (most commonly translated as “Really Simple Syndication” but sometimes “Rich Site Summary”) is a family of web feed formats used to publish frequently updated works—such as blog entries, news headlines, audio, and video—in a standardized format. An RSS document (which is called a “feed”, “web feed”,or “channel”) includes full or summarized text, plus metadata such as publishing dates and authorship.  Web feeds benefit publishers by letting them syndicate content automatically. They benefit readers who want to subscribe to timely updates from favored websites or […]

“Typography Everywhere”

Until the Digital Age, typography was a specialized occupation. Digitization opened up typography to new generations of visual designers and lay users.  Since digitization, typography has spread to a wider ranger of applications, appearing on web pages, LCD mobile phone screens, and hand-held video games. The ubiquity of type has led typographers to coin the phrase “Type is everywhere”. Here are two works of Pallete Design Industries that illustrates it to the T. The Dharma Lounge has come to fruition through the exploration of using […]
