…levelHead will augment your reality?

levelHead

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 Website Wednesday: StreetArtLocator?

StreetArtLocator

The StreetArtLocator (v2) helps you locate street art near you. (Considering the name, the obviousness of that statement is not lost on me…)

With specific tags for graffiti, galleries, paintings, stickers, stencils, sculptures, and installations, it’s a Google Map powered guide to the beautiful art that’s all around you for controversially public consumption.

Just click on your area to see both a location and a picture of the street art that has been spotted and documented. Then, if you’re out and about and come across something that you’d like to share, just snap a pic and add it to the database to help those around you enjoy your find as well.

…movingMario makes the plumber real?

movingMario

Keith Lam’s movingMario is a fantastically classic art installation that takes the Mario experience and transfers virtual movement into real world experience.

Of course there’s an artsy explanation for everything, and he probably dives a bit deep into the symbolism of it all, but it’s hard to argue that the results aren’t cool:

Check out theDemos and Flickr for a full rundown of what was involved.

…JL Audio is thinking thin with their TW5 sub?

JL Audio TW5 Thin-Line Subwoofer

The JL Audio TW5 Thin-Line Subwoofer is a staggering piece of sound engineering.

With an extremely shallow mounting depth of only 2.5 inches, it needs only half a foot of enclosure, and is designed for truck and sports car installations where space is a premium.

Despite its thinness, JL hasn’t skimped on the specs, as this sub is available in either a 12” or 13.5” variety, and handles 500 or 600 W respectively.

Get ready to bring the bass to where it’s never been before.

…Undoboy does walls?

Here’s a very cool and time-lapse-tastic video of Undoboy installing a set of his Blik Dreamland wall decals onto an otherwise blank wall:
