Caribbean Cruising – Haiti & Jamaica | Royal Caribbean

It’s not often that you can claim to have woken up in a different country four days in a row but that’s exactly what happened when Adam and I took to the seas and embarked on our first full length cruise, courtesy of Royal Caribbean. A quick plane ride (please note the sarcasm as this plane […]

adidas Football | Germany vs Greece Slow-Motion Recap

posted by on 28/06/2012

You’ve got to love slow motion videography, always manages to capture the real emotion and essence of a moment. adidas Football have teamed up with up and coming film makers, The New Age Outlaws (remember the WWF crew?!) who are part of the The Odyssey Media Collective. They’ve used a Olympus i-speed camera which has the ability to shoot at 2000 frames per second – madness! No need for twixtor when you have equipment like this. The aim was to capture the emotions during the up’s and down’s throughout the game in one of the special fanzones created specifically for the tournament in Poland. More on the reverse.

Google's Project Glass: Skydiving Demo

posted by on 28/06/2012

Google announced their revolutionary Project Glass a month or so ago and since then everyone’s been hyped to see what the hell it actually does. So the team behind the project decided take a trip out of their labs and give us a taste of what to expect from the product. I don’t know why but I’m not really excited by it? It’s clear that most of this video was shot on a GoProHD rather than the product itself, you do see the quality of the Glass’s video in parts where they show in live screen grabs. I guess living in the moment and doing Hangouts in the air whilst free falling must be appealing to some? I’m definitely not going to be doing that anytime soon, though saying all this – it’s definitely going to be a ground breaking product, further enhancing the age of connectedness with glasses! Watch video on the reverse, props to TechMog for the heads up.

The Future Is Ours

posted by on 27/06/2012

There are a hell of a lot of manifestos/philosophies popping up all around the place Launchgram’s manifesto is definitely one of the better ones. Michael Marantz has combined the manifesto and several inspiring videos to create this beautiful compilation, although it’s heavily focused on our technological advances without considering the environmental impact of it all – it’s still very positive and inspiring. A beautiful message, just what I need before heading out onto the horrid Central Line for my morning commute. The future is ours to create, watch on the reverse.

Nicki Minaj At The Hammersmith Apollo | Review

posted by on 27/06/2012

I must admit I’m not the biggest Nicki Minaj but it was curiosity that called me to the Hammersmith Apollo instead of catching England in the quarter finals. The first thing I noticed is her fan base, with a predominantly white, young audience, I felt like I was in line for a Justin Bieber concert.

Exhibition | Natural Selection by Dave White

posted by on 26/06/2012

Sometimes when you work for yourself its hard to feel inspired and tend to go on a search for it; or it could just knock on your door (my door being my twitter timeline). The good folks at Rosie Lees tweeted about an exhibition by British contemporary Artist Dave White held at the Hospital Club. Having been shown some of his work for Nike and the Jordan brand earlier in the year, it sure wasn’t going to be a disappointment but let’s just say I was flabbergasted. Visuals on the other side.

The Lego Inception

posted by on 26/06/2012

Big up Staffordshire University! I went there for a year before dropping out, the university is great for the geeks. It offers a plethora of gaming-related degrees so you can just imagine the heartbreaking male:female ratio. Real tears. Anyway, a set of students from there have created a Lego version of Christoper Nolan‘s award winning film Inception. This team project, spanning across 12 weeks took almost 1000 hours to complete with each person putting 120-160 hours worth of work. Crazy – you can definitely see that in the end result with great attention to detail in each of the scenes. The hard work clearly paid off as the views on this video speak for themselves, watch it on the reverse.
