XBOX360 Kinect Part 1

I recently purchased the Kinect, motion control input device for my dust collecting XBOX360. I'm not much into console gaming any more, but since we've been having such miserable weather this year, I was willing to try anything, in the hopes of becoming more active. Now I actually enjoy using the Kinect and find myself using it far more than I had anticipated. The problem I'm finding, is that while the Kinect works well while I'm playing by myself, my entertainment room is too small to accommodate multiple players simultaneously. Well the people over at NYKO have come up with a rather clever solution for those of us who are spatially challenged. It's called Zoom Kinect, and it does exactly what it's name implies, it zooms in by using a set of lens that fit over the Kinect module. Once installed the lens work in the same manner as glasses, in that they readjust the field of vision allowing for much better motion detecting at closer distances. Unfortunately we're all going to have to wait until August 16, to get our hands on this gizmo, as well as heft out $29.99(US).

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

Blogger Has Died

Dear friends, fans, and followers. For the past few months my blog has been overrun with errors, making changes very difficult (if not impossible). On numerous occasions I've attempted to reset my blogger template, install a new templates, and even restore from an older version but I'm still unable to add or remove specific content from my blogs template. The initial problematic area was the blog post section which refuses to accept any changes or alterations to the date, author, title or social media links. I have suffered through this problem, but as of late it appears that the layout is now no longer accepting changes, and when displayed is no longer centered. If anyone has suggestions on how to fix these blogger issues, please email me. As a result, I will no longer be updating, as its too difficult maintain this blog.

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
