    Never Forget A Face With NumberSnap

    Have you ever been in, let’s say a discotheque, and gotten caught in a whirl of names, numbers and faces that you just can’t keep straight? Happens all the time. Luckily, NumberSnap just became available for Android on Google Play. The premise of NumberSnap is that sometimes, you just can’t remember what your new friend from the night before looks like. Because reasons. Read More

    Tumblr Puts More Focus On Photos With Photoset, Its New Standalone iOS App

    Tumblr is a company that has built a platform that seemingly morphs every single time I visit it. One of the most popular features of the service is its ability to share photos, and then of course watch them spread throughout the network quickly. Today, Tumblr announced a new standalone photo-sharing app called “Photoset”, which allows you to group some pictures together, share them… Read More

  • Behind The Scenes At B&H

    Behind The Scenes At B&H

    A photographer named Linhbergh Nguyen bought a camera from B&H photo in New York, a camera store run by Satmar Hasidic Jews in a manner that more resembles Katz’s Deli with its arcane ticketing/receipt system than a retail establishment. On the camera he found some shots inside what appears to be a testing lab in the store, which is interesting but not the real draw. Read More

    How Piaget Watches Are Made

    Up in the mountains of Switzerland watch movements are made. Down in the city of Geneva watches are borne. The contrast between the people who make the inside of watches and the outside of them is a benefit to the industry. You want watchmakers to be focused, hard workers who dedicate their lives to building high performance mechanical machines. On the other hand you want designers to be… Read More

    Video: System Instantly Generates 3D Head Models From 2D Photos

    I am well aware that this piece of technology isn’t the first of its kind, but this new system [JP] that converts 2D photos of faces into 3D models looks quite powerful. According to its makers, two researchers from Japan’s Waseda University, the 2D pictures are converted in just 1.2 seconds and require nothing but a conventional web camera. Read More

  • MB&F HM4 Thunderbolt Watch Hands-On

    Max Busser, founder of MB&F, remarks that the HM4 is the most legible MB&F watch yet. He is actually quite right. It is the only Horological machine with a traditional looking dial. Round and clear, it is quite easy to read with its Arabic numerals and luminant covered hands, especially given its orientation on the wrist. I actually love reading this watch. Right next to the time is… Read More

    You gotta check this out bro, it’s a pair of sweet snow goggles with a camera built in. What a great way to record those gnarly shreds and crashes on the slopes. These come from Liquid Image, who released them before CES to try and stand out from the other announcements we’re expecting this coming week. Read More

  • Greetings, Space Ranger!

    Greetings, Space Ranger!

    It seems that our own Greg Kumparak has been kidnapped by Space Pirates and is now being forced to grab hold of metallic, disembodied breasts and swing them too and fro in order to free himself from Space Prison. Either that or Greg had too many fish tacos and is suffering in a fever dream. Read More

    The XP login: The new BSOD


    Former CGer and current PopMecher took this photo of a huge public display sporting a big fat XP login. It’s escpecially grand that this is in the United Red Carpet lounge. Nothing’s too good for frequent fliers, even failing to implement Windows in Kiosk mode. Read More

    Windows 7 screen grabs look better than they sound

    So Microsoft’s Sinofsky had a pretty good dance with CNET about Windows 7, really not saying much of anything. But a picture’s worth a thousand words, right? Howzabout a ton of pics? We can confirm these are indeed screen shots of the current build of Windows 7 as it will be introduced in 2010, but keep in mind that’s three years away and many changes might be made. Read More

    Belkin Bluetooth dongle transfers photos with ease

    I am, oh, so very jaded. I almost passed up this little trinket from Belkin because I figured everyone and their mom’s rig had Bluetooth, but they don’t. In the rare case that your desktop or notebook is sans Bluetooth and you happen to be an avid photographer with that 2-megapixel camera on your phone and you’re looking for an easy way to upload to your rig then look no further.

The process is simple: You take a picture using your cell phone’s camera. You upload the picture to Kooaba via MMS, Email or provided client-side application. Kooaba then recognizes the picture and sends… Read More

Do feel free to let me know if you do. For those of you who are into that sort of thing, Sony has announced a device that is sure to keep you from sleeping at night until its release.

    Sean Captain's photoset of Nakano Broadway: Naked dolls FTW, NSFW


    Japanese graduation caps Those Japanese! Always up to something. If they’re not texting on their superphones or inventing the Walkman, they’re watching women ejaculate rubber phalli and collecting naked schoolgirl dolls giving each other Gyno 101 exams. Witness the glory of Nakano Broadway, the new Akihabara or Electronic Town. Akihabara is kind of cashed — nothing there… Read More
