…NVIDIA wants to know what’s the State of the Art?

State Of The Art

NVIDIA has teamed up with NOTCOT, Core77 and Behance to bring you the ‘State Of The Art’ contest, and prizes include the kick-ass NVIDIA Quadro CX graphics card along with a copy of Adobe’s CS4 Master Collection.

The contest is broken down into three mini-contests, so you have a few different chances to submit, and the first on comes from Core77, and it’s called ‘Visualize the Screens of the Future’.

If you’ve got artistic talent and are looking for a new way to express it (and potentially win some prizes) then be sure to check out the contests and show off what you’ve got!

…It’s TGI Friday: Where’s An Egg?

Where's An Egg?

Where’s An Egg? has Russian instructions, 1970s graphics, and is surprisingly fun considering those two don’t often combine for much good.

In this hard-boiled adventure game, you must help the Boise police find a missing egg. Not in Mancuso’s garage? Try Brodermaker’s gymbag. Everyone’s a suspect when “Where’s an Egg?” is the game that you are playing. And that’s the game!!

NOTCOT called it her favorite Flash game ever, and it’s definitely one of the most unique, so give it a shot and see how you do.

…The Olympics have got sole?

Nike Sole Materials

Nike has designed an entire line of custom shoes for each sport in the 2008 Beijing Olympics.

While that doesn’t seem like anything special, keep in mind that in addition to the usual sports like Track and Field and Basketball, sports like Gymnastics, Wushu, Kayaking, Wind Surfing, Taekwondo, Equestrian, and Fencing also need unique shoes to enhance the athlete’s abilities.

For a full rundown, check out NOTCOT for a look at both the shoes, and the unique sole materials that help each athlete perform at their peak.
