Fast Food: Ads vs. Reality

Fast Food: Ads vs. Reality
Each item was purchased, taken home, and photographed immediately. Nothing was tampered with, run over by a car, or anything of the sort. It is an accurate representation in every case. Shiny, neon-orange, liquefied pump-cheese, and all.

Puppies and Flowers : Pink Dolphin Seen in Louisiana Lake

pink_dolphin_2.jpg
A charter-boat captain from Lake Charles, La., photographed a rare pink dolphin a couple of weeks ago in Calcasieu Lake, an estuary just north of the Gulf of Mexico in southwestern Louisiana.
According to Calcasieu Charter Service’s Web site, Capt. Erik Rue was on the lake June 24 with fishing customers when five dolphins came into view — four normal-looking gray ones, and a bright pink one that appeared to be an adolescent.
“It appears to be an uncanny freak of nature, an albino dolphin, with reddish eyes and glossy pink skin,” the Web site reads. “It is small in comparison to the others it is traveling with and appears to be a youngster traveling with mama.”
There is a species of pink dolphin that lives in the Amazon River in South America, but this one appears to be a more common bottlenose dolphin.

Reality desktop vs. virtual BumpTop interface

desktopA1.jpg

Reality Desktop

Windows interface moved to real life.
Do you remember what is your Computer Desktop? It's a metaphor
of real desk.

Snappy, fresh interface with stacking, folding and crumpling abiliities.

Anand Agarawala presents BumpTop, a fresh user interface that takes the usual desktop metaphor to a glorious, 3D extreme. In this physics-driven universe, important files finally get the weight they deserve via an oddly satisfying resizing feature, and the drudgery of file organization becomes a freewheeling playground full of crumpled documents and clipping-covered "walls." Worried your laptop's desktop will descend into the same disorder as its coffee-mug-strewn real-life equivalent? Fear not: BumpTop has a snappy solution for that messy problem, too.

LED Watch by Hironao Tsubai

DAD1.jpg

Part of apertures of metal band became digital display screen. Metal band and digital figures mingle together in proportion naturally. Without the face of “timepiece”, it displays figures only when needed but also quite vague existence, “time”.
