Canadian designers make felt rocks and soft blocks

feltRocks.jpg

Stephanie Forsythe and Todd MacAllen of Forsythe + MacAllen Design, www.forsythe-macallen.com, have been operating a multi-disciplinary design studio since 1996 and are currently based in Vancouver, Canada. 

Felt rocks are sculptural pieces, made from 100% pure wool felt – solid all the way through! felt rocks are sold in sets of 6 hand selected rocks, including one rock that has been split in half to reveal the solid wool interior. The felt rocks are packaged in a natural wool felt bag that can be re-purposed as a fashionable and useful hand bag. The rocks vary in shape in size, but average about 4-6 inches across.

Bloxorz : Cool Flash game

gameTap.jpg
Bloxorz is a simple idea for a puzzle game that is beautifully executed. The objective is to tumble a rectangular block through each stage and deposit it into the square hole at the end. Using a series of bridge-opening switches, teleporters, and block-splitting switches, solve the puzzle each stage presents to move on to the next of the game’s 33 levels.

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.

Hopsicle anyone?

Many people say there's nothing like a cold beer on a hot day. But did you ever consider savoring a frozen beer? How about a frozen beer on a stick? A chef in Washington, DC, is making what he calls a "hopsicle." The chef at Rustico's says the frozen beer has been selling like, well, hotcakes.

Excellent T-Mobile Ad, a la Improv Everywhere.

I'd been wondering when some Ad agency would capitalize on the Improv Everywhere formula, well Saatchi & Saatchi scored with a T-Mobile commercial they shot on the 15th of January 2009 at Liverpool Street station, London.
