…levelHead will augment your reality?


Julian Oliver’s levelHead is an incredibly unique game that uses augmented reality to turn hand-held, solid-plastic cubes into little rooms that are logically connected by doors.

The player moves the character by tilting the cube, and the goal is to move the character from room to room in order to find the exit. The trick is, some doors lead nowhere and send the character back to the room they started in, so the game challenges your spatial memory as you must remember which doors belong to which room.

It sounds simple, but when you see it in action, you can start to get an idea for just how unique this concept really is:

For now, it’s just an art installation, but hopefully someone makes this a real product soon, because I’d love to play the home version!

…It’s TGI Friday: Skating and snowboarding sail?

Skateboard And Snowboard Sail

With some tarp, a few feet of duct tape, clear plastic material from grandma, fiberglass shock chorded poles, and two feet of plastic tubing, you can build your very own hand held skating and snowboarding sail that folds up when you’re done using it for easy transportation.

Self propulsion is now officially out of style.

With a bit of cotton, some thread, and a dab of lighter fluid, you too can make your very own, hand held, flaming fireballs:

Definitely one hot how-to!
