Hidden Folks

An exploration game in the vein of Where’s Wally?, except it’s all black and white and animated. Despite its overwhelming appearance, the game is said to be relaxing and slow-paced. Coming to Windows, Mac, iOS and Apple TV. Teaser on Steam.

Snickers: Marilyn

Apparently, the secret to Marilyn Monroe’s beauty wasn’t her genes or her makeup. It was her food. Snickers gives us a behind-the-scenes look at the shooting of her infamous subway grate scene from The Seven Year Itch.

Néit Collapsible Luggage

Néit has designed luggage that is waterproof and has a hard case, yet collapses to reduce its volume by up to 70%. It also has four 360º wheels, a carabiner-style handle and optional GPS tracking. Available as a 6.5lb 38L carry-on or as a 10lb 90L check-in suitcase.

100 Trillion to the Tenth Power

Well here’s something we didn’t know was a thing until today: Siri beatboxing. Here, Chinese beatboxer Heartgrey spits some mad mouth sounds while backed by Apple’s digital assistant reciting the answer to “what is 100 Trillion to the Tenth Power?” Oh, and this guy.

Doctor Who: Raspberry Pi Edition

A brief demonstration of the shockingly good audio capabilities of a $5 Raspberry Pi Zero computer, as the bargain priced computer replicates the sounds and music of the iconic Doctor Who theme music. Remember when you needed a $1000 synthesizer to do this?

A beautiful and functional manual knife at a great price. Our friends at Massdrop are showing off this Kershaw Emerson knife with a 2.75? long black-oxide coated stainless blade, and an easy to hold ergonomic handle.

Conan, Norman & Miller Play Doom

(Gore) “You don’t have to shoot him, he’ll die of diabetes in about a year.” Conan sat down with the Panthers’ Josh Norman and the Broncos’ Von Miller to play the new DOOM and talk about poultry farms and wine. Then a special guest fills in Aaron’s spot.

Sony ?6300

Sony’s follow up to the stellar ?6000 also has a 24.2MP CMOS sensor, but with a staggering 425 phase-detection AF points and 0.05s AF for razor sharp shots. The ?6300 can also record video in 4K and shoot stills at up to 11fps and up to ISO 51200.

“Make sure to always wear a loose hoodie to hide your power level.” Casually Explained outlines the three fundamental ingredients that you need to have on your quest to not fit in doorways anymore.

Logitech G810 Gaming Keyboard

A feature-packed mechanical keyboard offering superfast response, with 25% shorter key throw than Cherry MX switches, 26-key rollover, plus the ability to customize the color of every single key. Sadly, like most LED keyboards, it’s Windows only. When will Mac fans get one?

Aug(De)Mented Reality 4

Illustrator Hombre McSteez and his crew of unhinged Sharpie on transparency creatures are back to invade the real world with their animated antics once again. Stick around for a cameo from Adam Savage, who does not qualify as an inanimate object.

What “Nothing” Really Means

Nerdwriter1 reminds us that Seinfeld‘s “defining” joke shouldn’t be taken literally. The show shifted sitcoms from, “What’s it about?”, or “What’s the lesson here?” to “How funny is it?” Imagine pitching a comedy about a paper company or urban planning officials.

Green Room (Red Band Trailer)

(PG-13: Language) A struggling punk rock band accepts a gig at a neo-Nazi tavern. Their night goes from bad to worse when they stumble upon a murder at the bar. Naturally, the skinheads don’t want any witnesses. Another thriller from Blue Ruin director Jeremy Saulnier.

Ice Diamonds & Classic Cocktails

Munchies dropped down Ginza, Japan’s Bar High Five to get a look at owner Hidetsugu Ueno’s perfectly balanced and artful cocktails, and his ability to individually carve chunks of ice into glimmering diamond shapes. Ironically, Hidetsugu doesn’t even drink.

Loris & Livia refire off-the-shelf 250ml Duralex Picardie tumblers in a kiln to give them playfully warped forms that make each glass unique. Available in clear, amber and blue. The clear glasses are also available in 90ml size.

10 Great Closing Shots

CineFix follows up its top 10 opening shots with its picks for the best movie endings, whether because they’re open to interpretation (or undeniably definitive), creative or just plain beautiful.

Breaking Bad in Better Call Saul

“Two words: Nail. Salon.” Bob Odenkirk, Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould talk about some of Better Call Saul‘s nods to Breaking Bad. Many of them are obvious, such as characters and locations, but there are a few that only eagle-eyed fans would have noticed.

Miles Ahead (Trailer)

Don Cheadle’s directorial debut is a biographical film based on Miles Davis, centered on an unreleased tape that was stolen from him. Apparently the movie takes on a free-form and branching approach in a bid to capture the jazz legend’s spirit.

Survivor 20 Ways

Anthony Vincent of Ten Second Songs performs Survivor’s classic Eye of the Tiger in the styles of 20 Super Bowl halftime performers. And we are once again reminded that Prince should play the Super Bowl every year, and everyone else can go home.
