“Reminds me of something that Q would give James Bond…”
– Chelsea Miller
See? Movie references like that, plus that sexy lisp, plus her being sexy & THICK (in that fitted black dress…LAWDY) gets me. Okay, Chelsea Miller, what’s up? Hollering. Oh, you’re doing an #AllGoodThings unboxing video for the JooVuu mini car camera? Ha! I got caught up. You got me. Not even mad. And I’m REALLY not even mad at that striped swimsuit on your Instagram
Ever wonder what happens to a package between the time you drop it off at the post office and it arrives, safely, at its final destination? What kind of system it goes through before it’s delivered to you? Ruben van der Vleuten, designer of Tasty Tweets and Blind Maps, was curious…so he rigged a standard cardboard box–sent from himself, to himself–to record the journey.
As for the footage, van der Vleuten was amazed to see the complex – and efficient – conveyor belt system at work; and that relatively few people actually touched the package on its journey. But most surprising (and a bit scary), was that based on the pics that showed the open box; that thing really, really looks like a homemade bomb! “To be honest this was my biggest concern as well,” van der Vleuten admits. He included a note explaining that this was part of a student project with no criminal intent, but regardless: “Every time, I was bringing it to the post office with sweaty hands.”
As is their duty, delivery workers drop off packages like this every day. Neither rain, nor sleet… nor threat of ‘bomb’… or something like that, right?
GoPro is truly made the little camera that could… record everything from baby’s first step to Felix Baumgartner’s first step on his 24-mile dive from space! Initially developed and marketed as the go-to camcorder for surfers, bikers, skiers, and other action enthusiasts, GoPro cams are also being used by newlyweds (at the ceremony maaannn…get your mind out that gutter), teachers, researchers, and other non-thrill-seekers; you know…regular folks. GoPro cams can still shoot intense action even in regular folk circles though. On the job, firefighters use them for training, marine biologists use them for undersea research, and the Army uses them in assessing damage from roadside bombs.
GoPro cams are still pretty pricey ($400 each) for personal cameras; but maybe the price will come down as the company continues to target mainstream market segments. GoPro maker Woodman Labs’ founder Nicholas Woodman is definitely on a big push to make it so his pro-grade mini-cams”document more and more of our lives.”
“If this is a niche, it’s a very big one,” Woodman declares.
A 19 year old man was arrested after being caught on tape having sex with his boss’s female pit bull dogs. This is a serious WTF moment. Sheezh!
