…SteamBirds is a must play dogfighting game?


SteamBirds is an awesome top-down, turn-based aerial dogfighting game. The graphics are unique, the gameplay is fun, and I’m sure it’ll be an iGame before long, so play it now while you can still claim to be a trend setter!

…T-Post lets you play Rock, Paper, Scissors with your t-shirt?

Rock Paper Scissors T-Shirt

T-Post is a monthly magazine that gets delivered as a t-shirt, with the news story on the inside, and an artist’s interpretation of that new story on the outside.

This month, they’re talking about Higher Education, and Marc Stromberg’s t-shirt design includes an augmented reality tag that allows you to play Rock, Paper, Scissors with a hand that comes out of your chest when you sit in front of a webcam.

Don’t believe me? Check it out:

Now I’m not quite ready to call Augmented Reality clothing a trend, but with the Adidas AR Game Pack and now a shirt that plays Rock, Paper, Scissors, the world of fashion is quickly becoming a world where things aren’t always as they appear.

…The Hipster has evolved?

Hipster Evolution

Paste Magazine’s Evolution of the Hipster is a hilarious look at the growth of the hipster culture from 2000 through today, including its emergence from the emo, a stop at the scenester, and the current meta-nerd trend.

Are you cool enough to pretend you’re not cool?

…Bad News comes with a soundtrack?

How To Break Bad News

The idea of combining a book with a soundtrack sounds so intuitive, I’m surprised it hasn’t been done before.

Eric Steuer and Tim Molloy worked together on the book, called How to Break Bad News, about a reporter who goes undercover at a fast food restaurant chain to expose labor abuses – but then finds he prefers working there to being a reporter.

The soundtrack is being distributed for free, and matches the tone that the authors wanted to set with each part of the book.

I hope this becomes a tread, because everything’s better with a little music.

…James Piatt uses Tinkerbell to make fun of Paris Hilton?

James Piatt Tinkerbell Purse

If you’re worried that people have stopped calling your purse silly and extreme, then check out the Tinkerbell purse from James Piatt.

The purse, which looks like an upside down dead Chihuahua (made of leather), is based on Paris Hilton’s discarded pet Tinkerbell, and is meant to capitalize on the trend of carrying a small dog as a fashion accessory.
