Automated Robotic Sentry Turret With 5.5mm Machine Gun Video
Apparently this video contains a demo of an automated robot turret that has a 5.5 mm machine gun built into it. The turret costs around $200,000 and was designed to be deployed at the DMZ in South Korea according to some of the other info listed with the video. It comes with a day and a night camera in addition to people tracking and recognition software (which you'll see in the video). One thing I noticed about the tracking "square" that the software places around people was that it seemed to lag behind the person so I wonder if the gun leads in front of them. It also appears to give the people a chance to surrender before it fires on them. Welcome to the future?

Brand New Crazy Huge 14000 Square Feet British Mansion Tour Video
In this video a mansion house called Updown Court is featured. The mansion was built in England and according to the video took five years to complete. The grounds include 58 acres of parks, gardens, and woodland. The inside living space of the house is around 14,000 square feet with a good portion of the house completely covered in a rare marble. There are multiple swimming pool sized pools inside the house and a large hearted pool outside. Additionally it features it's own bowling alley and what looks like house stables (not to mention the staff and guest houses). This place really reminds me of Hearst Castle, the Vanderbilt mansion, Lyndhurst, and the Rockefeller in architecture, design, and uselessness.

Giant Mutant Tomato Grown In Japan Almost Four Inchs Across
A farmer in Japan who has been growing tomatos for 30 years recently grew this giant mutant tomato which he says looks like a Chinese lion mask. Apparently the mutant tomato is about three times normal size at 10 cm across and weighting 150 grams (or about a third of a pound). So is the farm down wind from one of the nuclear blasts from WWII or possibly getting water from one of their nuclear plants. Next thing you know they will clone this mutant tomato and it will be a delicacy in Japan like square watermelons.

Demonstration Video Of A 3D Desktop Filled With Physics Enabled Documents
In this video they demonstrate a desktop interface system where the desktop is a 3d space and 'documents' (or windows) are physics effected objects that can be thrown around, stacked, organized, unorganized, folded, crumpled up, and/or enlarged. The majority of it is them working with small 'square' documents which only show the type of the file (the icon like a PDF). However, near the end of the video they start working with browser windows and images which look and 'feel' like a real stack of physical photos. The interface seems to be completely mouse based with lots of 'circle the 3d document objects' to select them and then perform a function. Probably the best one is the effect of crumpling a document or window up, throwing it in a corner, and watching it bounce around. It seems like it would be a more natural way of organizing (or at least ) accessing windows because instead of a flat surface you have a stack of off center windows where you can see a small amount of the content in each. Combine this with the top down touch screen table display for a couple days ago. Now apply the same functionality to video games or each individual website in a web browser for the win.

Square Watermelons Raw Horse Meat And Sparrow On A Stick In Japan
I saw a photo of a square watermelon over on another blog but there was no additional information to go with it. Looking for more information I came across a site in Japan which talks about square watermelons (and other foods). Apparently they grow square watermelons in a glass box and in Japan they cost something like 10,000 yen a pop at the time the webpage was written. It says they are a luxury item that would be given as a corporate gift. Other foods listed on the page are horse meat (with photo), grilled sparrow on a stick, living fish, and blowfish. So do other melons like cantelope grow square in a box or is the rind not tough enough? Would oranges grow square?
Check out the larger photo of the square watermelon and a photo of some horse meat.Read More >>

People Attempt To Try Out A Fake Waterbed And End Up All Wet
In this video which appears to have been filmed in Germany they setup a fake "waterbed" in a mattress showroom in what appears to be a mall or some such. The waterbed is actually a square pool of water with a piece of foam placed over it so it looks like a mattress. Various different people come over to the bed and attempt to try out the waterbed which usually consists of them falling backwards onto it or just jumping on it. They expect it to catch them but since it is a fake all they get is a dousing in the pool of water. There are quite a few cameras around (which I assume are hidden) which they cut between to catch the people getting doused with water. The funniest one is the mother who falls back into it and the look on her kids face. His mouth is hanging open in awe. They must have to reset the bed after someone falls for it because the foam would be all wet and there would be water all over the floor.

Cool Looking Four Wheeled Motorcycle Named The Atom Showed In This UK Video
Here is a four wheeled motorcycle demonstrated in this video on some British TV show. Some of the choice quotes from the video are of the host of the show saying how in the air intake at the back of the car behind the driver's head feels like it is sucking his brains out through his ear. There is no windshield and no external body to speak of on the car. In addition it has a small (what looks like) and 8 inch square "boot" (trunk) in the front hood area of the car. Near the end of the video they rate how fast the car is in relation to other road worthy cars and it beats everything on their list except the Porsche GT.

Band Pulls A Fake U2 Spoof Event In New York City Before Getting Arrested
A band got togather before the last U2 concert at Madison Square Gardens and pulled a pretty funny protest stunt. They set up all their gear on a roof top in New York City across the street from where the real U2 was going to be playing. They dressed up like U2 and started playing cover songs on top of the roof. Then they had about 75 people run down the street yelling "U2 is playing on the roof" in order to generate a pretty good crowd. At some point the cops showed up and busted them all for causing to much noise. You'll have to read the article (with lots of photos) for the full scoop.
Check out the fake U2 spoof event for yourself.

If You Want A Tough Puzzle Game Maze Garden Might Be Just The Thing
Tough flash puzzle game. You have to move three squares around so that they match up with a pattern on the floor. Once you have the matching pattern you can move them over the colored location on the floor and complete the level. Very basic graphics but a fun if tough puzzle. The trick is to use the wall pieces to move certain pieces of the puzzle and not others until you can get them to match up. It is a lot harder than it looks.
Get your game on when you play Maze Garden.Read More >>

Get Your Game On And Convert All Of The Clouds To Suns In Sunny Day
Interesting little flash puzzle game. The goal of the game is to turn all of the cloud squares to sun squares. You do this by jumping the squares until all of the squares are sun squares. You can jump a square with a cloud or with a sun. The graphics are basic but fun. Actually this game is a lot like the game Go where you have to change all of the other player's color to yours. It is just set up like Minesweeper instead.
Get your Sunny Day on for a good time.Read More >>
