This rocks my world at this lovely 4:35 am , and more importantly, the response of a friend upon viewing these was, UH, i did that in junior high, go take the print/book making class at the local community college, there are tons of drawers of ancient typefaces and wingding like imagery.
So fine. Maybe i will. Look into it tomorrow.
They’re shaped like little turtles, and while they don’t offer a whole lot of robotic functionality, they will remember rythms tapped out o n their shells and walk to that rhythm. They can also run, play melodies, and so forth. Walkiebits, with the “world’s smallest class” (Takara) body, feature four modes: “Walk” in which the turtle shakes its rear as it makes sound, “Rhythm Mode” which will imitate learned rhythms as it walks, “Race Mode” in which the turtle runs, and “Sing Mode” where the turtle will play melodies with electronic sounds.
This elephant has nice curves. Somedays the world gets to you, and the tiniest little thing can somehow put a smile on your face… wandered around Normal Heights and Hillcrest today in San Diego, stumbled upon Importers Outlet at 4247 Park Blvd. Filled with a pretty decent and well priced selection of goods from Southeast Asia, and a few rather bizarre objects like fuzzy plastic dayglo jesus/mary/buddhas… but great finds from pottery and incense to large furniture pieces. For perspective the little guy is about 5” head to butt.
I visited the Salvation Army Thrift Store in South San Francisco today and found this cute set of ice cream dishes. Awww. I sort of miss Action Thrift Store down in San Diego. They have a ton of miscellaneous junk there. I was looking for some old bad/good/bad framed artwork, but struck out yet again today. If anybody reading this is from the Bay Area and knows of a really great thrift store besides Thrift Town in the Mission in SF and the Salvation Army stores, please let me know!

Vroom vroom… goes the car. If i had kids, they’d need this. Why start your kid off with a mini bmw or ferrarri, when this just seems so much classier, and more robust… It’s just so slick, i needed to put the picture up. Via inspiration from ToiProtocol.

Sharpie looks posed to take on everyone in the marker business…look out pantone, here comes sharpie with more colors than i ever imagined i’d need or want in permanent marker? Its gone from the label your clothes, doodle on your notebook, give your friend a tattoo in class, plain old black marker… into fat, super fat, skinny, two tipped, mini, and so many more… pictures of all the new ones to follow…
But coolest thing of all… take a look at how they make them, great video here… Quite possible the sweetest most mesmerizing vid in a while.
Generated by the “Job Title Generator”, that’s Bob’s new job title… Here is Bob’s story: “This is Bob. He has worked for GigantaMegaCorp for 10 years. HR policy states that Bob is due for a lateral promotion.”
First there was Dilbert… now think Dilbert Lego-fied… CUBES! Cube headed guys, living in cubes, boxed in cubes. I couldn’t stop laughing when i realized these cubes look so similar to some my friend works in… (and i’m sure millions/billions of others as well).
Finally, the drudgery of corporate life has been captured in a play set for adults! Bob, Joe, Ted, and Ann spend eight hours a day, five days a week, at tiny desks in tiny cubicles in a giant room packed with countless similar cubicles in a giant building filled with countless similar rooms.
Get a pile of cubes, get creative… build upwards? Lots more pics post jump. The Cubes.
For ShadeElaine and the many a night we spent playing far too much mariokart So cute. It’s E3 week, and the gaming maddness is engulfing even the least interested non-gamers… from the XBOX, PS3, GameBoy mini… too much out there. This one’s from Gizmodo.
Super Mario Pepsi Bottle Cap madness. What is up with this? Do they dance? I can’t tell. But it is definitely a strange trend in bottle cap decor? The images are pretty sweet (see below)… i wonder what the real ones look like? and there is free Super Mario TAPE as well (yes, like scotch or packing tape stuff)… found via Octopus Dropkick.
