EPOC by Emotiv


The worlda€™s first thought-controlled computer game could be launched by the end of the year.

A new headset being developed by an Australian company may soon replace joysticks and Wii handles.

The EPOC headset has 16 sensors which measure electrical activity in the brain, allowing players to push and pull objects on a screen just by thinking.

Despite scepticism among some experts, EmotivAA -AA the Sydney-based company behind the headsetAA -AA claims it has carried out pre-release tests which show that the electroencephalography process works.

Emotiv co-founders Allan Snyder, a neuroscientist and former Cambridge University research fellow, and Tan Le are confident the technology can take gaming from the Wii to the next stage.

Tan Le said: a€This is the tip of the iceberg. There will be a convergence of gesture-based technology and the brain as a new interfaceAA -AA the Holy Grail is the mind.a€™

The theory behind the headset was predicted by Nintendo president Satoru Iwata at the video games industrya€™s annual E3 conference.

He said: a€As soon as we think something in our brain, it will appear within a video game. Youa€™ll probably need to wear a kind of hat or helmet or something.a€™

Religion of Super Heroes


Hey - they may have super powers or what have you, but they’ve got to believe in something too.

Really, I have no idea how I found this site. That said, I couldn’t help but share the link with the shogunate, as I know how badly you ninjas wanted to know Two Face’s religious beliefs after seeing the new Batman movie.

Lamp Girls


Marianne Maric - creator of these photographs of girls dressed as lamps - exhibited a video performance of the ‘lamp girls’ as part of an exhibition called Under my Skin at Galerie Magda Danysz in Paris earlier this year.


A statement from Maric:

I started photography in 2001, and Ia€™ve been constantly taking pictures of my girl friends and mates. My work shifted gradually from shooting them in sophisticated outdoor settings toward a more tridimensional, sculptural approach to the female body.

First, I used photography as a way to freeze time ; my friends were losing their identities, with their faces hidden most of the time. They were looking like dislocated dolls, broken toys or sad robots. My mind has now become a sanctuary where these objectified bodies give some of their life back. I imagine them moving slightly, in a sweet, smooth and shy movement. I need to be in full control, to master those objects I have created. Whereas I initially wanted to freeze these living girls, I am now trying to bring to life my motionless creatures again, even to the point where they could possibly free themselves of my bonds.

I see the world as an endless setting Ia€™m trying to comprehend. I see the human body the same way ; William Klein perceived it as a wonderful and fascinating architecture worthy of being photographed. I used to be afraid of puting life into my pictures and I was destroying them with the tip of my finger. Today though, when I transform a woman into a thing, it always serves the same purpose: allowing me to shape her/it as the subject/object I want her/it to be.

These a€oelamp-girlsa€A were first conceived as an illustration of the woman as a thing conveyed by the a€oeentertainment world,a€A but gradually ascending to a state of consciousness. These photographs were part of a broader vision: once the costume was finished, the a€oelivinga€A model put it on and took place on a white rotating base into a dark room. The public had the choice to turn on or off the lamp, the dress, the girl, the room. I wanted to a€oeimmortalizea€A this moment when a woman become a simple household appliance. That is how these photographs were born.

Gyroscopic Anti-Terrorism


Is this not one of the silliest things you’ve ever seen? I mean, I knew that some POlice used Segways in certain locations - but for ‘rapid deployment’ with full riot gear and gats pulled? My ninjas, PLEASE.

Members of China’s armed police demonstrate a rapid deployment during an anti-terrorist drill held in Jinan, capital of east China’s Shandong Province July 2, 2008, roughly one month ahead of the Beijing Olympics.(Xinhua/Fan Changguo Photo) [source].
