GreenBox, The Eco-friendly Pizza Box, is Pitching Itself to Shark Tank

Introduced as far back as 2009, the GreenBox is an eco-friendly pizza box that can be broken down into four plates, while the remainder box can be converted to a storage container for leftovers. A brilliant idea indeed, but we surely have no idea what those folks have been up between then and now. Anyways, one thing for sure, they are still alive and kicking, and will be hitting up ABC Television Network’s Shark Tank to pitch their green business idea, though it is not clear what’s their proposal at this point. The only way to find out is to catch the show on Friday, January 30, 2015 at 9 p.m. ET on ABC. For the uninitiated, GreenBox is made from 100 percent recycled and recyclable cardboard. It was conceived with a single goal: to eliminate the need for materials such as aluminum foil, cling wrap, disposable plates and more.

How a Guy Lived in Ikea For Two Days Without Being Caught

No matter which Ikea you go to, they are unsparingly massive and for unfamiliar visitors, getting lost is not uncommon and so is falling asleep on one of those cosy beds or sofas. While some of us may have our fair share of the said experience, no one can beat Bro Bible writer Harvey Champine, whom had gotten away living in one of the Ikea malls for two stays. Yes, you heard that right, two days. According to Harvey, it was one of those rare days where he had off and so, instead of staycation or whatever things normal folks do, he scurried to Ikea to have a hearty meal of cheap hotdog. Hit by drowsiness, likely induced by the heavy cheap meal, he fell asleep on one of the loft beds and the rest, well, I think its best to hear from the horse’s mouth: Continue reading How a Guy Lived in Ikea For Two Days Without Being Caught

Iron Man 3 Official Movie Trailer

May 3, 2013 is still quite a while to go but still, we are enjoying being teased by the new official trailer of possibly, the biggest movie event of the year for 2013, Iron Man 3. from the description as well as the trailer, this third Iron Man flick looks to be a little complicated and an emotional one. well, if that’s the case, then we are not sure if we would enjoy peering into the softer side of this metal-suited hero with literally an iron heart (or was it an electronic heart?). so what do you think? anyway, here’s quote of the movie synopsis taken from iTunes trailers site: Continue reading Iron Man 3 Official Movie Trailer

The Man Behind Classic Wrecks: John Findra

Classic Wrecks
“i think that we are in a globe now where perfection is so tantamount to success that perfection almost becoming boring.” those are the words of John Findra, the man behind the Classic Wrecks – scaled vehicle models that goes on the opposite of perfect beauty, and one that we admired so much. John’s statement certainly rings some truth of its own, as commonality does have it’s less than appealing fact, such as monotony. as much as we hate to admit, John’s creation of rusty, worn down rendition of scaled model vehicles really draw us to them.

ever wonder what the future will be like? or perhaps, how the future technology development will impact our daily personal and work lives? well, wait no further as Microsoft is letting you in on their vision of the productivity of the future. so how future is it going to be? i shall not speculate. the video depicts an exciting prospect but being a skeptic, i am, well… skeptical about it but i guess a little dream won’t hurt. as a tech enthusiast, i secretly look forward to that vision, however, the skeptic in me tells me that we have to do something about the infrastructure. so what’s my wish for the future? i don’t have the expense or talent to create a video to portray my vision, so as such, i shall sum up my wish in a few words: a bugless society. can Microsoft or anyone, for that matter, guarantee that? oh well, that’s just my rambling, let’s just get on with this interesting vision in the video after the break. again, no tech aficionados would want to miss this.

video: Actroid-F female humanoid now has a brother

remember the Actroid-F female humanoid that we featured a year ago? well, a year on, this female robot gets a new robot brother. it’s creator, AIST, has often been pitched with the question on why they create female robot, so they decided that its high time to give the male version a go. essentially, both robots are the same in terms of its working mechanics and only the wig and some cosmetics set the brother and sister robots apart. creating a male version also allows AIST to compare the impressions made by male and female robots to the subjects. in addition to the male humanoid, the duo are now equipped with cameras placed inside their retinas, thus enabling the robots to direct their line of sight towards a subject which inherently, makes them even more life-like and believable.

finally, one of the most anticipated star-studded cast movie of 2012, The Avengers has released its first official theatrical trailer. so expect lots of explosions and super heroes like Captain America, Iron Man, Black Widow, Thor and the Hulk in the trailer. having grown up with Marvel, naturally, i am excited about this movie but i try not associate it with the comic too closely, you know, just to avoid any unnecessary disappointment. oh, one more thing about the green monster, it is not Eric Banner or Edward Norton – if you haven’t already know. good or bad, you decide? i love the trailer and like most people out there, the words that captured us most are… Continue reading video: The Avengers official theatrical trailer is finally out

expensive Red Epic camera gets a lift from OM-Copter

radio control helicopters and aircrafts with onboard camera are nothing new but a flying contraption with a $60k camera slung underneath it, is definitely the first that we have seen and we consider it as an incredible brave act. come on, why wouldn’t it consider a brave act when a $60K RED Epic camera is slung underneath a radio control flying machine with eight tiny motors driving eight not-so-big propellers? that’s what exactly German special effect firm, OMSTUDIOS did and you can witness it in the video after the break. apparently, the folks over at the OMSTUDIOS designed this machine to take the place of crane for shooting from the air. the OM-Copter, as it is called, is capable of soaring up to 150 meters into the sky for aerial shots. sounds like a pretty good idea but i hope the creator has packed enough circuitry and gyros to take the beating from the winds when this thing goes higher up into the sky.

witness the World’s Fastest Couch in action

when it comes to furniture, the words ‘World’s Fastest’ hardly come into play, except if your furniture – a couch, in this instant – has an internal combustion engine under the hood, or should i say, under the seat. that’s truly one hot seat that would require you to don a full racing suit, racing shoes, and of course, a helmet when piloting it. especially so when it could hit 101 mph (163.12 km/h). this world record holder for the world’s fastest couch comes complete with a table (and a bowl of fruits to boot), not because of complimenting sake but rather, a necessity to improve its aerodynamic performance. this is one furniture that should compliment Perry Watkins’ world’s fastest dinning table and also betters Chris McIntosh’s leisure motorized recliner chair.
