Ad: Brandt Sputnik

Resembling something from outer space rather than something seeking kitchen space is the idea behind this print ad for Brandt microwave ovens. I'm assuming it's a French product since the ad agency is  DDB (Paris, France) . Via - I Believe in Advertising By: Mass

Ad: Chicken Licken

I don't know how good Chicken Licken is, but if their food is half as good as their ads are, then I need to head on over the South Africa and get me some. I'm surprising I don't come across more ads from   NetworkBBDO (Johannesburg, South Africa) . Have a look, you might need to watch them over and over. Via - Ads of the World™ By: Mass

Ad: Peugeot - Airbag

I think I've seen this before or at least something like this, either way it's still a great gimmick for print ads. Created for Peugeot by Loducca (São Paulo, Brazil) , see what happens after hitting the page, and check out the full disclosure video at the end. Via - I Believe in Advertising By: Mass

Ad: WWF - Cerrado

Another TV ad from the WWF, bringing awareness to the Brazilian Savannah region known as the Cerrado. Uniquely created by Neo (London, UK) using shadow puppets. Via - I Believe in Advertising By: Mass

HDBaseT Update: 5Play

A while back I posted an article describing, what I believed, is technology being developed today that would revolutionize our future. Since I've gone ahead and made such bold statements, I figured I might as well start documenting some of the advances technology has made since my initial introduction. In my original article, HDBaseT was being developed as an alternative means of providing High Definition Audio/Video inter-connectivity between devices via standard Cat5 cabling. Since my article, it seems that providing HD A/V over Cat5 cabling simply wasn't revolutionary enough, so the people over at HDBaseT came up with 5Play. 5Play is the convergence of 1). Uncompressed High Definition Video 2). Uncompressed High Definition Audio 3). 100BaseT Ethernet 4). Power Over Cable 5). Various Control Signals into a standardized protocol. So what does that mean? Well you can now use Cat5 cable to transfer High Definition Audio/Video, but you can also send full internet signals, a

Gumball Wars

Here's a fun, little (2min.) video clip, that should help break up the monotony of everybody's work week. It was created by  Scott Thierauf , a 3D animator, who was testing the lighting effects of his rendering software. If that last sentence was a bit too technical, don't worry just skip ahead to the video... Via - The Awesomer By: Mass

Trakrok

 Designed by Alexei Mikhailov  the Trakrok takes a look into what the future might look like for personal all terrain vehicles. Using an independent segmented rubber track plate design similar to that of a snowmobile, allows for maximum traction in mud and snow. While incorporating an anodized aluminum exoskeleton frame minimizes weight, yet sacrificing none of the strength. Many more drawings of this concept design, so keep reading...   Via - Yanko Design By: Mass
