 Here's Part II of Pacific 201.  I can't wait to see the tech manual that was developed for this fan film :-)

Pacific 201 - Part I

Another fan film is out! (crowdfunded less than Axanar, crowdfunded after Axanar, and is out before Axanar. Go figure ;-)

The Impossible Whopper

 Permalink

Burger Kind punks everyone who thought their Whoppers were made of real beef.  Sadly, I think one of these days we will find out that fast food was not beef all along (and not, it won't be veggie burgers :p)

This one was another interesting April Fool's that has caught my attention.  I think what got me was the pet-appeal of the fake ad.  Next year they should do something with cats ;-)

Google Tulip & Google Wind

 Permalink


This year's Google April Fool's joke...or at least one of them, is Google Tulip: using AI to translate plant communication to allow for human-plant communication.  It was pretty funny ;-).  While watching this yesterday, I also came across Google Wind from a couple of years ago, also from the same Google Netherlands team.  The Netherlands team seems to have quite a lot of fun making these ;-)

Fan Film down!

 Permalink

Seems like another (star trek) fan-film is down...or at least temporarily halted.  The Star Trek: Temporal Anomaly fan film seems to be in talks with CBS.  Since they started their work before all the "guidelines" came about (mostly because of Axanar, it seems), they were under the impression that they were grandfathered into the non-guideline era.  This is the third fan film (after axanar, and Star Trek: Ride of the Federation) that gets this treatment.  Oh well... hopefully the full intended film can be "released" in some fashion 😏

The synopsis:
Star Trek: Temporal Anomaly is the story of an average day aboard the Enterprise 1701-E which takes place just after the incident with the Ba’ku featured in Star Trek: Insurrection. An anomaly suddenly forms and within the blink of an eye somehow leaves only 1 Ensign aboard the Federation flagship. He soon discovers other ships from other times have also been brought to that region of space and each with only 1 crew member left aboard. With each ship badly damaged the remaining cross-era crew must join forces against an unlikely foe as the fate of their ships, their lost crews and over 200 years of history is threatened.

The trailer:

The Norman Door

I came across this on facebook today (while taking a break from the monster that is the dissertation proposal). It reminded me a lot of my undergraduate days when I took UI Design as part of my computer science degree, and I was reading the book by Don Norman :-)

WWDC 207 highlights

 Permalink

I used to love Apple events. I'd wait for them like a kid waiting for (summer) Santa each June.  This last one passed my by (again), completely under the radar.  Luckily the Verge has a shortened highlight reel here.  Enjoy! ;-)
