…It’s Things Thursday: Nookanooka?

Nookanooka

Nooka makes some pretty crazy watches, so it’s only fitting that they make a pretty crazy watch holder as well.

Called the Nookanooka, “their physiology is transient, eternal in their world, ephemeral yet immortal in ours – beyond imagination yet real enough to feel. Time is to them as carbohydrates are to us, and from this they poo carrots and kittens [or anything else you can request]. They pee gravity and what is the equivalent of light to them is dark matter in our universe”.

Microsoft WorldWide Telescope

Microsoft Research’s WorldWide Telescope, the “Web 2.0 visualization software environment that enables your computer to function as a virtual telescope-bringing together imagery from the best ground and space-based telescopes in the world for a seamless exploration of the universe”.

Basically a Google Earth for the Sky, it’s supposed to be fantastic, and it’s just been released by Microsoft, so if you’ve got an eye for the sky, check it out and see what you think.
