Earth Blocks

Array
Gear  |  Gaming
From Michael Hsu's review in Saturday's Wall Street Journal:
"Even the most hard-core LEGO fan has to grow up someday. Fortunately, Earth Blocks give adult enthusiasts a more sophisticated way to get their stack-and-lock fix. Instead of the brash, kid-friendly colors of their Danish counterparts, Earth Blocks draw on more urbane hues — a palette of greens and browns, mottled, like a forest floor. The blocks are made from natural materials — coffee beans, cedar sawdust, or scraps of cedar bark — that have been blended with polypropylene for rigidity. Earth Blocks are softer around the edges than the classic toy. As a result, they don't snap together as tightly as LEGOs do, which makes them less than ideal for making lightsabers. But their uniform shape (the bricks come in just one size — 1-1/4" x 5/8" x 5/8") lets them stack beautifully, and the colors blend harmoniously no matter what combination you put them in. Plus, these toy blocks look more appropriate in a professional setting than miniature figurines with yellow heads."
Coffee Beans, Cedar Sawdust or Cedar Bark.
Made in Japan.
Set of 50 blocks: $30.

Controlled Quantum Levitation on a Wipe'Out Track

Gear  |  Gaming
A very cool Quantum Levitation Racing video from Japan. The mini-Wipeout game works using "quantum levitation". When super-cooled (below -301 F), an electrically and magnetically neutral object coated with a ceramic layer - in this case, the ships - becomes a superconductor. This is an object that conducts electricity with no resistance, and no energy loss.
"Here is a short footage on our recent work on quantum levitation. We were inspired by the game Wipe'out to do our work. With this new technology, we hope to revolutionize the world of motor transport; Maybe in a near future we could assist to a real Wipe'out race"

Eye Asteroids: World's first eye-controlled video game

Gear  |  Gaming


Eye Asteroids is the first eye-controlled arcade game, created by Tobii, a company that develops eye-tracking tech. Debuting at New York's Dave & Buster's arcade this week, the game has just one button, and you only press it once to start. Once you do, the game uses a strip of infrared sensors below the screen to scan your eyes and calibrate the system. The Earth stands in the middle of the scree, all you have to do is look at an incoming asteroid, pause slightly to shoot and move on to the next target. You can watch the video of it in action. Each machine costs a reported $15,000, and there will only be 50 made.

PBS Arts: Off Book - Video Games

"Video games are important. They are a storytelling medium, a place for self-expression, a sandbox for the human imagination, and an extension of an ages old tradition of gaming. We play out some of the most essential aspects of our culture in games, and we learn more about ourselves and the world around us in the process. From the powerful cinematic experiences of mainstream gaming, to the hyper-personal environments of indie games, we are in the midst of an explosion of gaming activity that, as some predict, will continue to define the way we live and interact with information, and each other, far into the future.
