…Halo corpses can spell?

Halo Corpse Alphabet

It takes dedication to make an entire alphabet out of Halo corpses, but takes a little bit of crazy to then add in numbers, and even a few punctuation marks.

The original goal of the Halo Corpse Alphabet (a self-described macabre project) was to represent every letter of the alphabet with the twisted, curved, stretched, and otherwise dead Spartan and Elite bodies from Halo 3.

Apparently the Halo community was more than willing to take on this task, as they quickly jumped on board and cranked out letter after letter for the amusement of all.

…Paltius is the new master of your television?


If trying to type the channel numbers into your remote has become too tedious of a task, then check out this concept remote from Art.Lebedev Studio.

Called the Paltius, it’s 20-inches long and features “as many buttons as there are channels on TV”, which sadly isn’t true for most people with cable (though it does do up to 399 channels with three range selection buttons).

Channel surfers, your new surfboard has arrived.

…Apple is updating?



Today, during the Apple summer event, the Steve announced a new iMac line, featuring lots of glass and aluminum, as well as some beefed up specs.


Along with this new iMac line, the Steve also introducing a new, matching wireless keyboard that’s plenty slim and plenty sexy.


On the software side of things, the Steve introduced iLife ’08, with the usual slew of updates.

iPhoto gets events, giving you a new way to organize your photos.

iMovie gets added, which is supposed to do for video what iPhoto has done for photos.

iWeb gets enhanced, including Google integration (Anyone else hoping for a partnership?)

iDVD gets a nudge up, but not much.

GarageBand also gets improved, though again, nothing substantial.

To go along with the new iLife features, the Steve also introduced an update to .Mac. Now sharing photos and movies with friends and family is even easier. Plus, there’s iPhone integration with a real “Web 2.0” feel. – Yeah, the Steve actually said “Web 2.0”.

What about for the working world?

Don’t worry, the Steve has you covered as well.


iWork ’08 saw the usual bump in featuring, plus the addition of Numbers, Apple’s long awaited spreadsheet program. It’s like Excel, only Applefied.

And that’s it. No one more thing. Steve, why no iPod? Must you make us wait? All I’ve got to say is that the next iPod better launch rockets at the push of a touch screen button. That’s right, rockets.


…Pi is a very beautiful number?


If you take the numbers that make up Pi, convert each number into a color, and then write (color) out the digit in a repeating pattern, you get what looks like a scrambled TV set. It’s beautiful in a chaotic sort of way, and is a great demonstration of the true randomness of the number.
