Virtual Dog-Walking Arcade Game — NOT OK.

virtualDogWalk.jpg

"This is me playing the dog walking game. This is arguably the most challenging arcade game I have ever played. Much more so than Beatmania or DDR (j/k, I so don't play DDR) or Street Fighter II. Basically you have to walk on a treadmill while holding this white dog's leash. Walk too fast, and he'll get tired. Walk too slow, and he'll get bored. And when obstacles like the neighborhood bully dog or a oncoming car shows up on the screen, you better steer clear! If you mess up, your dog dies.

I think my dog died in the first few minutes of me playing. In real life, however, I have a healthy 4 year old dog that I have no problem walking. So while this was fun (well, stressful) to play, I wouldn't say it's very realistic."

If you really have to. Via

Japanese invent car that runs on water

This sounds too good to be true, but Reuters is reporting:

Tired of petrol prices rising daily at the pump? A Japanese company has invented an electric-powered, and environmentally friendly, car that it says runs solely on water.

Genepax unveiled the car in the western city of Osaka on Thursday, saying that a liter (2.1 pints) of any kind of water — rain, river or sea — was all you needed to get the engine going for about an hour at a speed of 80 km (50 miles).

"The car will continue to run as long as you have a bottle of water to top up from time to time," Genepax CEO Kiyoshi Hirasawa told local broadcaster TV Tokyo.

"It does not require you to build up an infrastructure to recharge your batteries, which is usually the case for most electric cars," he added.

Once the water is poured into the tank at the back of the car, the a generator breaks it down and uses it to create electrical power, TV Tokyo said.

Whether the car makes it into showrooms remains to be seen. Genepax said it had just applied for a patent and is hoping to collaborate with Japanese auto manufacturers in the future.

Most big automakers, meanwhile, are working on fuel-cell cars that run on hydrogen and emit — not consume — water.

Sinister Japanese Scarecrows

From Tokyo Times:

Opting for a similar approach to last year, and in no way content with merely looking sad or strangely serene, this season’s scarecrows are once again set on being sinister.

Or, at the very least, a tad intimidating.

Very little coverage of this story in the US Media.

tibetWall.jpg
Link to YouTube clip of a story CTV ran on the banner unfurling

From CBC article

Three Canadians arrested by Chinese police following a protest at the Great Wall against China's presence in Tibet have been released.

The British Columbian activists — Lhadon Tethong, Sam Price and Melanie Raoul — left China after their release on Wednesday and flew into Hong Kong.

Lhadon Tethong, the driving force behind this protest, has generated a lot of online buzz through the smart use of internet technologies, blogging, live video etc.

Burma’s Aung San Suu Kyi ‘To Be Released’ — (I’m not holding my breath).

From Sky News:

Burmese pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi will be released in November just days after the first election there in two decades, officials say.

The Nobel Peace laureate has been detained for most of the last 20 years since winning the country’s last poll in 1990.

Unnamed sources told the AFP news agency that she will be freed when her current house arrest expires on November 13.

“November will be an important and busy month for us because of the election and because of Aung San Suu Kyi’s release,” a Burmese official said.

The official noted the release would come soon after the country’s November 7 vote.

A second Burmese official, who also declined to be named, confirmed the date, adding: “She will be released on that day according to the law.”

Neither Suu Kyi nor her National League for Democracy (NLD) party will participate in the upcoming vote.

Opponents have dismissed the election as a sham aimed at hiding military power behind a civilian facade.

Uncertainty over whether the military regime will indeed release the 65-year-old will remain until the moment she appears in public.

The junta, humiliated by its crashing defeat in the last election, has prolonged Suu Kyi’s confinement almost continuously ever since.

She has been detained since May 2003 and has only enjoyed fleeting periods of freedom since 1990.

Thailand-based analyst Aung Naing Oo said any release would come with conditions and she “won’t be free to go out”.
