Wooster Collective : The dude smuggles stuff INTO museums...

The dude at Wooster Collective has a "Celebration of Street Art". The point is: an artist named "Banksy" takes some artwork as seen to the left, smuggles it into museums and displays them on the wall next to other works of art. The artwork even has some official-looking plaque to go with it. Sometimes, they stay up for days before the authorities catch on. Check out the story at the Wooster Collective and for more works of art by Banksy, go here.

Transparent PCs (kind of...) on flickr

Check out this flickr search: http://www.flickr.com/photos/tags/transparent/ and this photo pool:

It will show you (mostly) a series of photographs of "transparent" PCs. A sort of tromp d'oleil where you use a photo of what's behind your PC as your desktop wallpaper. The result:



A seriously convincing and clever looking set-up. This reminds me of the "invisible coat" developed by some scientists over in Japan. In essence, it was a jacket that reflected a projected image from a live feed camera positioned directly behind the subject. Yes, not really too high tech in this form, but in the future nanocameras and nanodisplays would make this more usable.

Cool mirror

Check out this new bathroom mirror. It is clear so people can see your cream remedies for that bad rash you have, but when they get closer it turns into a proper mirror. Cool. The first $1,400 mirror. (estimated price, I actually couldn't find a price for this item)

Hootie Burger

Darius Rucker from Hootie and the Blowfish has been getting some serious airtime these days. However, it's been mostly in the form of this Burger King ad posted at the 'boards - Screening Room. As an added bonus, Brooke Burke (FHM's 10th sexiest woman in the world) also stars. I like it. It's a cross between the Wizard of Oz and Willy Wonka.
