Plexus is a Shirt For All Occasions


The Plexus is the T-shirt of the future. This futuristic concept design was created by Vernon Chen and Joanne Lim Jin Xuan, who both imagined that the shirts of the future will be “held together by pixelated nano-particles.” These shirts will be highly interactive with the wearer’s surroundings and will morph and change to match the occasion, going from a casual shirt to a formal one within seconds. This feature is attributed to the “opening and closing [of] its louvre-like pixels.”

So a shirt with a coat-and-tie design isn’t exactly formal or proper work attire, but if everyone’s going to be wearing this thing in the future, then that probably won’t be an issue. Of course, such material doesn’t exist yet and the technology to actually come up with this type of shirt is probably still decade away. But it’s still a pretty interesting concept. don’t you think?

You can watch a video highlighting the many features of the Plexus after the break.

High Tech Bling: Video Earrings with 2.2-Inch Screens

Video Earrings

Earrings. People wear them to make a statement or to complete their outfits. Others purposely choose wacky pairs to grab people’s attentions, while others design their own to show off their creativity and individuality.

Adding yet another reason why people wear earrings is the team at MJ Mclaren with their Video Earrings. These high-tech accessories incorporate a 2.2-inch screen that can stream media and display slideshows. The earrings can be charged and loaded with files via USB.

The Pavlov Poke Gives You an Electric Shock If You Spend Too Much Time on Facebook

Pavlov Poke

How many hours do you spend on the Internet a day? I think it’s safe to say that you’ve got a problem–or more like an addiction, really–if it’s more than half the total time you’re awake. Why spend your time cooped up indoors, looking at pictures of people doing all sorts of fun things that you could otherwise be doing?

With this in mind, MIT PhD students Robert Morris and Dan McDuff came up with the Pavlov Poke.

Viral Video Awesomeness: Dude Does 31 South Park Impressions in Two Minutes

South Park Parody

South Park is one animated show that’s definitely not safe for children–no duh, considering it’s labeled as an “adult animated sitcom.” Featuring often crude storylines that parody real-life people and events, the show’s got it all: sort-of lessons, celebrity cameos, the occasional song, and a whole lot of humor.

As with most animated shows, a lot of vocalists come in to record their parts on the show. But if one day, the producers wake up to find that most of their cast is missing (well, it could happen)–then they know who to call: Brock Baker.

LEZGO on an Adventure: ‘Adventure Time’ Intro Re-done Using LEGO

Cartoon Network is awesome. Most people my age have a long-standing relationship with Cartoon Network. I remember rushing home every day from school when I was in the third grade to watch episodes of The Little Lulu Show before having dinner or doing any homework (yeah, my mom was cool like that!)

Another reason for their awesomeness? They’ve recreated the introduction to Adventure Time using LEGO bricks and they did a fantastic job, to say the least. Don’t believe me? Check out the clip yourself and then watch it again…and again…and again…

LEGO-lized Awesomenses: Voldemort Hunts for the Elder Wand–and Finds Gandalf Instead

Who is the most powerful wizard in the universe?

Voldemort killed the greatest wizards in London when he was at the height of his power. He came back with the help of his Death Eaters though, and embarked on a search for the Elder Wand to get rid of Harry Potter once and for all. It is at this moment where this LEGO-lized clip comes into play. Voldemort begins his search at Ollivander’s wand shop which is pretty sensible, since he’s looking for the Elder Wand, after all.

But just as he breaks out his wand to interrogate the wandmaker further, who else should walk in but Gandalf. It’s all fun and games at this point. Watch the clip above to see for yourself!

Better Than I Imagined: If Disney Made ‘Game of Thrones’…

A lot of people were up in arms when news broke that Disney had acquired LucasFilm and was planning to make another Star Wars movie. I guess the decision made sense since the series was made to be relatively child-friendly. But can you imagine what would happen if HBO gave the reigns of Game of Thrones to Disney?

Some people did more than just imagine, and the result is this video–and it’s surprisingly good. But maybe that’s because I grew up with Disney and princesses always have a soft spot in my heart. Watch the clip and judge for yourself.

LEGO Machine Folds Paper Planes and Launches Them

It takes a certain degree of skill and a whole lot of dedication to build what Mindstorms user hknssn13 built: a machine made entirely from LEGO that folds paper into airplanes and then launches them! Granted, it’s a relatively simple thing to do–if you’re doing it with your hands. It’s a completely different story when you’re trying to automate the process with nothing but a LEGO machine.

About 6,000 to 7,000 LEGO bricks were used to build the paper airplane folder and launcher. The moving parts at the bottom required two NXT Intelligent Bricks, five NXT servomotors, four NXT color sensors, and a Touch Sensor Multiplexer.

Reddit Keeps Things Simple With their New Webseries ‘Explain Like I’m Five’

Concepts like Friederich Nietzsche and his philosophy of existentialism can be difficult to understand. Reddit knows this, which is why they’re explaining what it’s all about in the simplest terms and ways possible in the first episode of their new web series called ‘Explain Like I’m Five.’ I think it’s clear what they intend to do from the title of the series itself.

If you frequent the site, there’s a subreddit of the same name that exists with the same concept as the series. Essentially, complex topics are tackled and discussed in such a way that even five-year-olds could understand. At least, that’s what they hope to do, in theory.
