say it with me: Razorfunfish!

April 23, 2009

So, our fearless leader Iain is across the pond right now, stirring up trouble at the Razorfish Client Summit in Las Vegas. While we were sleeping, he challenged the world to another Google battle (remember Velociroflcoptersaurus?) and this time, I’ve decided I’ll actuall DO something about it. This time, it’s a battle for the word Razorfunfish. Here’s a little stop-motion we threw together this afternoon:Vodpod videos no longer available.

It was really fun! Looking forward to doing more of these in my spare time…


Don’t talk while you are driving

December 13, 2008

Looks like you soon won’t be able to do that at all.

University of Utah engineers have invented a wireless car key device to stop motorists from talking on their cell phone or sending text messages while driving.

image Each driver of a car would have a separate key device. When the key is extended from the device, it sends a signal to the teenage driver’s phone, putting the phone in "driving mode" so it cannot be used to talk or send texts. The phone displays a stop sign while in driving mode.

The University has licensed the Key2SafeDriving technology to a private company, which hopes to have the device on the market within six months, possibly through cell phone plan providers.
