At the risk of sounding (blogging?) like a broken record, here is another amazing 3D projection mapping installation (so I hope you don’t mind!), this time from BMW in Singapore. The first thing that really stands out with this installation is that it’s set across two separate buildings and an intersection, probably the very first projection mapping [...]

Fortnight Lingerie launched a viral video last week, it’s called Super Sexy CPR and aims to get men (and women), who’ve been putting off learning CPR, a powerful reason to learn the best way to do it!

I laughed when I first watched this new viral campaign from Hi-Tec.

Just how fast is Google Chrome? In Sunspider benchmark tests it scored.. blah, blah, blah. Whatever. Benchmarking test scores used to measure browser performance don’t mean anything to anyone except for the most hardcore browser geeks, so Google came up with another way to show the speed of the latest beta version of Chrome; racing it [...]
