…Treasure World brings the Nintendo DS into the real world?

Treasure World

Treasure World from Aspyr for the Nintendo DS is an interesting new way to look at gaming.

To play, you take your DS out into the wild and roam the streets looking for star dust. In this case, star dust can be gathered from the Wi-Fi signals that are all around you, and each one unlocks a special treasure chest that is filled with goodies. Just turn the game on, wander around an area with lots of unique signals, and the game will tick off rewards like a pinball machine on overdrive.

Once you return home, the game will reward your adventure with costumes for your character and decorations for your world. Then, in another interesting twist, you can arrange those decorations in any way that you’d like, and your world becomes a 32-note music tracker, allowing you to create and share songs by just placing things in various locations.

Overall, I’m impressed with what Aspyr has done with the concept. They’ve managed to trick kids into playing outside by rewarding them with trinkets and toys, and then have turned them into composers with a unique music machine that encourages experimentation and sharing. Well done!

…Christoph Rehage walked The Longest Way?

Christoph Rehage spent a year of his life walking 4646km through China, and during that time, he let his beard and hair grow wild while taking pictures of himself along the way.

The below video is a documentary of sorts of his travel, and it paints a pretty amazing picture of Christoph’s adventure:

…Looking Thru The B-Sides trippy?

Looking Thru The B-Sides

Looking Thru The B-Sides is an AWESOME stop motion short that follows the adventures of a skater named “ollie” as he is off on a quest to find his lost skateboard. What starts off as a casual trip to the skatepark, turns into a wild trip down the rabbit hole and ends up in a way that Alice In Wonderland could never imagine.

…It’s Website Wednesday: Joobili?

Joobili

Joobili is an interesting idea in travel: You tell them when you want to go, and they’ll tell you where.

The service keeps an active database of unique and fun events that are going on around the world, and then matches the dates you have available to the things you can go do/see. From there, you’re just a few clicks away from booking your trip and embarking on the semi-unplanned adventure of a lifetime.

…It’s Movie Monday: Sorry I’m Late?

Sorry I'm Late

Sorry I’m Late is a fantastic stop motion from Tomas Mankovsky that tells the tale of one man’s journey home and his harrowing adventures along the way.

After watching the movie, be sure to check out the ‘Making Of’ area for some fantastic behind the scenes info as well.
