In the comments to the OK Go video posted yesterday, we were reminded of this Honda Car commercial from a few years ago. Verified by Snopes.com, the commercial took months to produce, and 606 takes to film. Impressive. (See the Snopes entry here for some interesting factoids and references.)

This is the greatest Rube Goldberg Machine I’ve ever seen. And even better – it’s the new music video by OKGO, for This Too Shall Pass. Enjoy!

I got this in an email, and had to share: enjoy:
A palindrome reads the same backwards as forward. This video reads the exact opposite backwards as forward. Not only does it read the opposite, the meaning is the exact opposite.
This is only a 1 minute, 44 second video and it is brilliant. Make sure you read as well as listen…forward and backward.
This is a video that was submitted in a contest by a 20-year old. The contest was titled “u @ 50” by AARP. This video won second place. When they showed it, everyone in the room was awe-struck and broke into spontaneous applause. So
simple and yet so brilliant. Take a minute and watch it.

Though I’ve been living an augmented reality most of my life, turns out you can download augmented reality apps for use on mobile devices as well. So what’s all the hype about? And are these apps really providing information that we couldn’t already obtain with other apps and reformatting them in more aesthetically pleasing ways? Tell me what you think after you watch the video below.

I just remembered a great video that I had to share after my recent trek to the ALA mid-winter meeting. This video parodies 2007’s mid-winter meeting in Seattle, narrating the action ala “March of the Penguins.” It’s hysterical!

Everyday I seem to find another amazing use of social media. This particularly fantastic project, Bb 2.0, is “a collaborative music and spoken word project conceived by Darren Solomon from Science for Girls, and developed with contributions from users.” Click on the link and then begin the videos one by one. Be sure to read the FAQs as well. It’s refreshing to know that there is no end to creativity even as the art form continues to change.
