Another great lecture from TED about how gaming is leaking into real life, and how it could all end…
Picked this up off the BBC Tech website. Proper scifi style imput device, that uses your own skin as the imput called Skinput! Facinating idea.

We’ve recently revamped the t-shirt shop with a whole bunch of new designs and styles! You can get:
For those of you that haven’t stopped by the GeekTown Shop recently, we’ve done a bit of remodelling, added a bunch of new designs, and generally spruced things up a bit.
There’s also some brand new geek t-shirts, from a simple expression of ‘Geek’, ‘LOL’ or ‘WTF?’ t-shirt, to a glow in the dark “Computer games don’t affect kids, I mean if Pac Man affected us as kids, we’d all be running around in darkened rooms, munching pills and listening to repetitive music.” t-shirt.
We’ve added to the World of Warcraft t-shirts, with a ‘Stormwind University’ t-shirt, along with a straightforward ‘For The Horde!‘ tee, and a couple of new designs for the ‘I apologize profusely for any inconvenience my murderous rampage may have caused’ girly t-shirts. And of course the classic ‘My Guild Went to Nothrend and all i got was this lousy tshirt‘ tee is still available!
And if your after one of the old classics, they’re all still there, like the ‘I’m What Willis Was Talkin’ ‘Bout’ t-shirt, and the ‘Joss Whedon is my Master Now‘ t-shirt, along with our new Firefly t-shirts.
Come have a look. Wear your geekdom with pride!
Some days you stumble across something so geekily awesome it really has to be shared… Samuel L Jackson’s Exekiel 25:17 speech played out as a Google Wave… Geeky genius! Not only is it brilliantly executed (in every sense of the word), it also does a great job of showing off Google Wave’s features! Great job by the guys over at getwhirled.com.
(BTW, if anyone has a Google Wave access invite they’d like to send me i’d be most grateful!)
Here’s a question i’m sure you’ve been asking yourself:
How long does Bill Murray’s character, Phil Connors, spend living the same day over and over (and over and over etc…) in the the movie Groundhog Day?
Well, in the irregular series of posts we like to call ‘people with wayyyy too much time on their hands’, the folk ‘Wolf Gnards’ (subtitle ‘we nerd pop culture’… Yep, they really really do…) have figured out an answer!
The number? There are 36 separate days shown in the movie, but that’s really only the start… You have the various ways he tries killing himself, time to learn the piano, time to learn french, etc… I’ll let the people at Wolf Gnards give you the final result…
