…It’s TGI Friday: Contrast Cannon?

Contrast Cannon

Contrast Cannon is a simple yet challenging cannon game where you must fire cannonballs towards their target, but you must also deal with some Yin Yang reverse gravity effects along the way.

…Denis Darzacq takes unique photos?

Denis Darzacq

Denis Darzacq’s photography is fantastic (and almost unbelievable) when you consider the fact that “there is nothing false in these scenes. These moments really occurred. There is no fiction, no retouching or special effects”.

Instead, he uses athletic and gymnastic young folks as well as good timing to make it look like his subjects are about to smack the ground face first.

In Denis’ own words, “at the moment of the leap, chance and gravity also intervened”.

…It’s Things Thursday: Nookanooka?


Nooka makes some pretty crazy watches, so it’s only fitting that they make a pretty crazy watch holder as well.

Called the Nookanooka, “their physiology is transient, eternal in their world, ephemeral yet immortal in ours – beyond imagination yet real enough to feel. Time is to them as carbohydrates are to us, and from this they poo carrots and kittens [or anything else you can request]. They pee gravity and what is the equivalent of light to them is dark matter in our universe”.

…Burton is rewriting the laws of shredology?

Jeremy JonesBurton’s Jeremy Jones Snowboard is a fantastic example of off the wall thinking that works well in the snowboard design environment.

    Rewrite the laws of shredology.

    Jeremy doesn’t let laws like physics, gravity, or city ordinances get in his way. The ultimate set of tools for the all-around freestyle specialist, Jeremy’s series gives him the power to step to any feature. His NEW 159 is a little wider, a bit stiffer, and more stable for those faster run-outs and bigger cliffs and kickers. The NEW Infinite Channel System™ offers unlimited stance options so Jeremy can easily switch it up in seconds.

If the board’s performace matches the looks, this is going to be one tough board to beat.

…Bomberos run the roads?


In Perú, kids called Bomberos (firemen) hitch rides on homemade karts to the top of a 1,000 meter mountain, and then ride back down with the help of gravity, delivering food, drinks, and spare parts to broken and stranded trucks.

Looks like fun!
