Determined by your clicks!

1) The New Audi Spectacle?

Although visually captivating at first glance, the campaign’s unabashed desecration of historic architecture in the name of commerce leaves a really bad taste in my mouth.  The title “The New Audi Spectacle” takes on a whole new meaning, no? 

2) For the Sadistic Germaphobe in Your Life. Poor Little Fish Sink

Designed by Yan Lu (who apparently draws inspiration from old James Bond movies, and S.P.E.C.T.O.R.’s painfully slow spy killing devices), the Poor Little Fish Sink, drains the water from your fishy friend’s home as you wash your hands.

3) Germans, Penguins Unhappy With Google, Note Privacy Concerns

There’s no hiding, Google has now officially mapped and imaged everywhere.  Brian McClendon, Google’s VP of Engineering, announced earlier this week that with the addition of Ireland, Brazil and Antarctica, anyone with a web browser can explore (virtually on foot) all seven continents via Google Maps and Street View.

4) Robert L. Barnum: Sweeping Regionalism

Robert Barnum carries a national reputation in the world of modern art.  His style is one of sweeping motion in the tradition of “regionalism,” a movement that grew in the U.S. from the early 1900s to World War II.

5) iPhone Controlled QuadraCopter with SpyCam

With its built-in Wi-Fi system, you can control the Parrot AR.Drone using the built-in accelerometer in your iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad device. On-board cameras (one forward facing, one facing down) let you see in realtime what the pilot sees as you complete complex flight maneuvers.
