thing in a jar

April 7, 2010

someone has a little too much time on their hands… or perhaps they’re just a bit on the strange side of things… either way, this individual has created an ambiguously creepy and strange figure and put it in a jar on his desk where all his co-workers can see and question it. on his site, he has also included instructions on how to create your very own “thing in a jar” to creep people out. AWESOME!!

if you feel that there’s just not enough cute in your life and you need to have cuteness battles, then this site is for you. you literally compare photos of dogs, and click on the one you think is cuter. the site the gives you the results of what percentage of people thought which dog was cuter while you move on to the next “round”…

this is a glorious waste of time.

the eyewriter

March 21, 2010

Los Angeles based graffiti writer Tony Quan was diagnosed with Lou Gehrig’s disease in 2003. a group of techies led by Zach Lieberman set out to create a way for Quan to continue with his passion of graffiti even though he was virtually completely paralyzed. they created the “eyewriter” which monitors eye movement and translates it to writing/drawing.

“Then we assembled a kind of wire frame that holds a Web cam, a small camera that we’ve mounted close to the eye,” he explains. “We’ve written software that tracks the eye, and then we calibrate with [Quan’s] eye movements and the computer screen.”  -npr.org
