Go Right, 2D at its best

Mark just shared this link on his B-sides 248pm. A nostalgic feeling came over seeing this video and rightly put by Mark on his post "If you’re an old school gamer then you’ll agree with me that this video is more touching than KONY2012."

So many thing went through my mind like Atari, Nintendo, Sega, 286's, 386's, Mario, Prince of Persia, Aladin, Sonic - the Hedgehog, Spiderman, Zelda, Ironman, Contra, Ninja etc. Amazing Video Compilation and Editing and more amazingly Storyboard. HERE is the original Youtube link.

Invisible Mercedes - F Cell Hybrid Car

This video is quite popular over the Internet right now. I have seen this popping up on facebook, youtube and also twitter. Looks like the marketing department in Mercedes-Benz must be having a field day with this one. The company claims that the car is a Fuel cell with Zero emissions. People are more interested in the invisibility that is put up over the car. I am sure the people in Germany had an amazing first hand experience for a whole one week with this car. Now the folks over the internet will try to get a first hand experience with viewing the video over the internet. There is an article on this on hybrid cars website.If that itself is not enough then the facebook page for the official Mercedes Benz F cell is another place to visit. The technology behind the invisibility in pretty nice one. On one side you coat the car with LEDs and on the other side a camera (here they use Canon). The image taken is immediately displayed over the LED giving a sense of a see through. (Reminds me of Ninja Camouflage 101) Anyways here is the video.

Currently Listening : Breathing by Jason Derulo

Currently listening to the song 'Breathing' by Jason Derulo. I have been hearing this song as it was on the UK Top 40 at number 35 when it entered on 26th February 2012. Currently hooked to the music, more than the lyrics. Have been hearing it over and over again. Lyrics can be read HERE. Official video can be seen on Youtube. One can see below also.

Plantronics Headset

Plantronics Mobile Audio 920
I recently got my hands on this headset device (Plantronics Mobile Audio 920). I had a 50-50 feeling about this device. It felt similar to the previous headsets I had come across. Previously, I have used Nokia bluetooth headsets (BH-209 and HS-36W) which were compatible with Nokia phones.

Recently, I was searching for some headset which could work with other mobile phones. There were many choices available which allow one headset to be connected with two mobile phones simultaneously and also belonging to two different mobile companies. Many third party companies are available which connect to any type of mobile phone (as long as bluetooth is present).

This particular headset can be connected to two different mobile handset phones simultaneously and also of different companies. But the other point which I consider as a plus for this particular device is that apart from being a bluetooth device this also acts as a wireless device when connected to a PC which enables to make voice calls. The price of this device was put at KD 25 (US$ 90) on Blink and currently crazy deal offer at Blink (valid for few days from 14th January 2012) has priced it at KD 15 (US $ 53). When I was searching for similar devices for PC and Mobile phone at different stores throughout Kuwait, this particular device was available at Blink and was reasonably priced.

The most intriguing thing about all these devices is that the power cords are annoying different. The Plantronics Mobile Audio 920 has its own cord which is connected using USB port for charging. I am just hoping that in the future there is a standard for power charging with electronic devices like cell phones, accessories and other devices. This way less amount of clutter with the wires.

Happy New Year 2012

Another new year dawns on us. 2011 was another interesting year with a lot of things happening. (Ofcourse 365 days in a year is quite sufficient for all sort of events). Each year brings ups and downs which leads us in having amazing set of memories and experiences. Hope 2012 brings another amazing set of experiences, hopefully good ones
