Saving up your money for something special? Well, this guy did and it’s not exactly what you would have thought. Marcelo Bezos (hmm…last name thrillingly close to Pesos) saved up all his pennies for the last 35 years and set out on a mission. He was going to break the world record in building the largest Penny Pyramid in the world (I didn’t even know a previous record existed). He managed to save up 289.000 pennies and started building. He captured everything in Time Lapse […]
Trash is another wonderful indie game, it started life in 2000 by a small team of developers who have seen a lot of praise for them. Â Although the graphics are a little dated, as they admit – and they do want to overhaul them, the game is smooth and fast. One of the interesting things about Trash is a single game can host up to 32 players! Â That’s some crazy RTS fun right there. Check out the video below and you can download Trash […]

I believe that majority of us have already at one point used or played with an etched a sketch drawing toy.Â Its definitely not easy to manipulate so much so do an art work.Â But found an artist George Vlosich III who mastered the art of etch a sketch to a T.Â He even has an award winning piece, the one he did for Lebron and one he did for President Obama’s inaugural exhibit. Check out his work on time lapse and see how amazing […]
My love for Los Angeles is beyond expression. When I first saw this video I couldn’t understand why the hell this guy wanted to leave L.A to drive cross country. But then when I actually looked at it I was stunned. Never have I seen a more beautiful Time Lapse video. The camera captures everything so awesomely and somehow the camera sure must be welded to the car somehow. It so static that it almost seems fake. The best part is the auto repairshop where […]
Itâ€™s not a command, itâ€™s a game!Â Yes another game from Rob, but you know I am a gamer and I like to push these things – hopefully you guys like them too! Thrust is a game where you are the spaceship affected by gravity, you have to use your thrusterâ€™s skills to defy said gravity and take the treasure shaped circle.Â Â Set in a wonderfully Tron-esque neon environment, you have to direct your ship through the obstacles and out. When you have picked up […]

This is a RTS (Real Time Strategy) game that was born out of Darwinia.Â Darwinia was a single player indie game with the plot that you were inside a guys computer helping rid a virus that had attacked his experiment. The Darwinians, although square and flat, are surprisingly cute, and you have to get them to a safe spot while defeating the evils of the virus threat! Multiwinia is an expansion of this idea with multi-player availability.Â I love the 8bit look of this game, […]
More and more people are getting on to social media.Â Found a very cool wearable gadget from gearfuse. They call it the Social Media watch, imagine having a watch that has all social icons on the face of the watch.Â It has the logo of Facebook, Twitter, Stumble, Delicious, Flickr, You Tube etc.Â Â Very cool design if you ask me. Aside from the social media watch, they also featured on there the Twitter and Facebook Mouse pad.Â Now you won’t forget to log on to […]

Hope you guys have fun watching them as much as I did.
Why bring this up? Well, just had a truly hot chili dinner and of course had to expand my knowledge on the Pepper itself. Turns out the Habanero Pepper is the worlds hottest pepper (rumor says there are two hotter though) and should not be consumed in it’s wholeness. However, apparently there are some people out there that wants to burn their taste buds away never again being able to taste the food they eat. But then again, maybe they gain a few points for […]
Tower of Goo is the game the birthed World of Goo.Â If you have no idea what I have just said, its a game where you have to get your “goo’s” across the map and save them.Â World of Goo was released a few months ago on PC and through the Wii Arcade – you can get a great demo though if you want to check it out via Steam. But to meet the free status, which I try and do as much as possible, […]
