Next Generation Of Advertising

(picture of actual electroluminescent display: click for preview)
The next generation of advertising isn't going to be coming from the creative minds of the Advertising, Marketing, and Media alumni. Nope this next phase of advertising is being developed by scientists, who are pushing the boundaries of eCoupling, Induction, and Electroluminescent materials.

Some of the more dedicated mass-imo followers will already be familiar with electricity via induction, which is the process of transmitting electricity from one object to another without the use of wires. However eCoupling is a new technology combining electrical induction with low power micro-controllers that allow data exchange. So what exactly does that mean? By adding eCoupling to a retail display rack (like at you're favorite supermarket) then outfitting products with tags (similar to rfid used in paypass credit cards) you can have total inventory control. You can know what is being sold, when, and how quickly it sells out. However when you combine that same technology with Electroluminescents, well then now you've got a party going on. Electroluminescent materials light up, when exposed to electricity, so when you start creating retail packaging with these materials, you get a whole new way to show off you're products, thanks to the electrical induction.

I know by now, some of you are scratching you're heads thinking, what the heck is this guy talking about. Well if you click on the picture at the top, you should get a good idea of what I'm trying to say. If not well check out the videos...

Project: Motorola DCT3416

My brothers Motorola DCT3416 died, and I figured I would attempt to fix it. I want to start out by saying I know very little about PVR's, other than somewhere buried inside is a standard computer hard drive. While dropping off the DCT3416, my brother informs me that it doesn't turn on, and that it makes this clicking noise. My first assumption is that the HD is corrupt and or damaged and preventing the machine from booting. Replacing the internal HD should produce a simple fix, so lets go about doing just that. Replacing the internal HD is going to be slightly more complicated than originally anticipated as the rear of the DCT3416 has 3 tamper proof/security screws, which I do not have a tool for. Instead I used a series of pliers, and 10 minutes later had all the screws removed. Here is what the tamper proof/security screws look like, once removed.   I should add that there is also a plastic security tab, just above the IEEE 1394 jacks, which disintegrated when I attempted to

Longboarding With Team Original

Love this video, makes longboarding look like so much fun. Do they rent longboards? Are there areas to longboard here in BC? Gonna have to find out and finally give this sport a try. Until then I'll have to keep watching this video... Via - LikeCool By: Mass

Duct Tape...It's Not Just For MacGyver Anymore

I came across this crazy site the other day called Duct Tape Fashion , which specializes in duct tape. Wait... I don't think I explained myself properly, there's a website dedicated to duct tape, and all things duct tape related. Ok, so maybe I did explain myself properly, WTF...really, duct tape. Well it seems duct tape isn't just for HVAC specialists and MacGyver anymore, it seems people are using duct tape to create all kinda of weird items like wallets, baseball caps, hats, bags, bracelets, purses, visors, and roses. Don't believe me, well check out some of these pics I got... Wallets Baseball Cap Hats Bags Bracelets Purses Visors Roses By: Mass
