Perjuangan Orang Asal

Orang Bandar, eat your heart out. Here comes Orang Asal with their own music video!

Orang Asal are the indigenous people of Malaysia, and the most overlooked community (imagine the fact that the man labels them "dan lain lain"). So them decided enuff znuff and established "Jaringan Orang Asal Se-Malaysia" to protect their rights.

Google Chrome

So Google launches Google Chrome (BETA), and hopefully it won't cause too much headache for web designers. I haven't had the chance to try it out myself, but this guy has.

Update: Apparently it doesn't work with Hotmail. Google does not like Microsoft or vice versa?

Giant Mechanical Spider!!!

So this French company, La Machine, thought it was awesome to hang a 50 foot long, 37 ton arachnid (dubbed La Princess) on a building, scheduled for demolition, in Liverpool. It'll stretch its legs out (doubling its size) and come to life early Friday morning. Garggh!

Rethinking the motorcycle

Extracted from

Challenged to rethink motorcycle transportation, Art Center College of Design student Jake Loniak decided the idea of a machine as an extension of the body should be taken literally. Inspired by Biomechatronics and called the Deus Ex Machina, Loniak’s concept is an electric vertically parking motorcycle controlled by 36 pneumatic muscles with 2 linear actuators.

I find it rather freaky because a couple of weeks ago I had a dream about this (the concept, not the actual image). If it we're to be produce, it could possibly help solve our traffic problems (kinda).

Arcade Fire - Black Mirror Music Video / Website

Arcade Fire's music video (interactive website actually) for their song Black Mirror from their sophomore album, Neon Bible, is one inspiring concept (technologically and of course, musically). You can control (on/off) the tracks you want to hear eg. vocals, drums, guitars, backing vox etc.

The only weakness is that it takes patience to view the site (maybe due to the freaking slow internet connection available in Malaysia). Well, it was definitely worth the wait.


Skydiving From The Edge Of The World

On August 16, 1960, Joseph Kittinger jumped from Earth in a helium balloon called Exceisior III, doing so from an air-thin height of 102,800 feet (31,334 meters).

From that nearly 20 miles altitude, his tumble toward terra firma took some 4 minutes and 36 seconds. Exceeding the speed of sound during the fall, Kittinger used a small stabilizing chute before a larger, main parachute opened in the denser atmosphere. He safely touched down in barren New Mexico desert, 13 minutes 45 seconds after he vaulted into the void.
