…It’s TGI Friday: YouTube Street Fighter?

YouTube Street Fighter

YouTube Street Fighter is the classic game you know and love but played with a modern twist.

The game consists of an intricate series of videos that allow you to control your player using one of four buttons. Press a button at the right time, and you’ll make a move on your opponent and score some damage points. Move too late however, and you’ll be on the receiving end of a blow that will take some of your own health. Once one of the players has had enough, there are even ending sequences to finish him off.

The animation itself is actually done with a combination of action figures and stop motion, though it’s surprisingly smooth for a video game that’s hacked together out of YouTube clips and the clever use of linking buttons.

Give it a shot and see what you think:

…The Sorapot is the perfect teapot?

Sorapot

The Sorapot by Joey Roth has taken the design world by storm by combining an architectural shape and simple functionality into a teapot that “brings tea’s quiet beauty into sharp focus.

It’s made from 304 stainless steel, borosilicate glass (Pyrex), and food-grade silicone for long lasting good looks, and “articulates the ritual of tea making in a thoroughly modern way”.

In addition to good looks, the Sorapot also stays green with a sustainable approach to packaging, including post-consumer recycled cardboard and molded pulp, natural jute rope, and the avoidance of tape or staples. (See TreeHugger for more details on the packaging.)

If you agree that this just might be the perfect teapot, then head on over to the site with &179 in hand, and one can be yours.

…The LIP Mythic Jump Hour is unique?

LIP Mythic Jump Hour

The LIP Mythic Jump Hour Watch features three separate discs for hours, minutes, and seconds that spin exposed on the dial and then line up in the viewing window to tell the time.

With a stainless steel case, leather strap, and Swiss quartz movement, the LIP Mythic Jump Hour is also guaranteed to work as good as it looks.

    A collaboration separated by thirty years with the 1970’s “TV case & strap” design by Roger Tallon and updated as a jumping hour display by French designer Prisca Briquet for LIP.

    LIP watches have been around for over 150 years but were unavailable in the United States until now. The company is reintroducing some of their most important models from a modern collection that remains as visionary today as when first unveiled 35 years ago. Most are faithful recreations while others have been updated with new designer visions.
