You Could Eat Off the Floors

Posted November 4, 2009

This Volkswagen factory in Dresden is beautiful. The outside is almost completely glass, the floors are made of hardwood and the parts are transferred by robots that move along thousands of magnets embedded in the ground.

When the production process is a work of art, it makes the end result feel more impressive. Some companies, like Apple, focus on beautiful packaging, but it doesn't say much about the craftsmanship. Unlike the iPod, the Phaeton — the luxury car built at the Transparent Factory — is not an impulse purchase.

Seeing the care put into its creation makes dropping $75,000 (minimum) on a car an easier pill to swallow. More importantly, it makes you believe, or at least hope, that they put the same effort into producing their more affordable cars.

Know Your Meme: Geddan Get Down

Posted October 18, 2009

Know Your Meme is my favorite video podcast. Even for someone like me who probably knows a little too much about the internet, I'm constantly learning new things. This site is also great for anyone who is confused by "The Twitter" and "FaceSpace".

The video above is my newest favorite episode. I suggest you watch it.

Skier Gets Buried by an Avalance while Wearing a HelmetCam

"This was a decent sized avalanche. 1,500 feet the dude fell in a little over 20 seconds." Watching his friends dig him out at around 6 minutes is truly amazing.

Some surprises, but overall a list of movies a love. Jason has the video and a text list of the twenty films.

Between Two Ferns with Charlize Theron and Zach Galifianakis

Charlize Theron is funny. And purdy.

Fan-Made, 8-Bit Video of Kanye's "Robocop"

Posted June 18, 2009

Robocop is my favorite song off the latest album and this video with all-original artwork, created by myk31, makes me happy. There are Double Dragon, Mega-Man and Punch Out! references, to name a few. I encourage you to watch it big, in HD. I also encourage you to check out the artist's site. He's got plenty of cool illustrations.

Google asks, "What's a Browser?"

They asked 50 people in Times Square and only 8% knew what one was. Of course, most of the people they asked were older, because that number seems pretty low to me. Either way, it's a good reminder than my friends are nerds. [via waxy]

Mr. T Sings Take Me Out to the Ballgame
