Artists Janet Echelman and Aaron Koblin –creative director at Google’s creative lab — have collaborated to create ‘unnumbered sparks‘, a monumental interactive sculpture in the sky, billowing silently overhead visitors to downtown Vancouver, Canada. The ethereal net spanning 745 feet between buildings shimmers with a vibrantly colored glow, punctuating the urban landscape as it floats above ground. Dynamic digital characteristics embedded within the aerial mesh define an engaging relationship with the viewer. Visitors with smartphones and tablets are able to paint vivid beams of light across the sculpture at a massive scale: small movements made on phones become nearly hundred foot long trails on its surface. When you look at the sculpture, you’re looking at a web browser. The team explains ‘the lighting on the sculpture is actually a single fullscreen google chrome window over 10 million pixels in size.’ Choreographed by the public in real time through their mobile devices, the soaring form becomes a crowd-controlled visual on a massive canvas. ‘Unnumbered sparks’, which premiered at the TED conference’s 30th anniversary.

The World’s Greatest Beer Ad.


Unless your granddad used to brew his own beer and take you through the process at a young, slightly bored age, chances are you have little to no idea about how it’s all made.  From now on, we’re taking the below advert as gospel.  The process has been broken down in this new commercial from the Hahn Brewery, who make beer over in Australia. It involves a number of stages with just one thing in common: total awesomeness.  We don’t want to ruin it so take a look below. You can then join us in manically Googling how we can import Hahn Super Dry as soon as humanly possible.

The Rare Beauty Found Within Google Street View


It is not often when browsing through Google street view that you come across anything of real beauty but Aaron Hobson has found some rather rare examples of what the Google car cam has caught while traveling around the world.

When Google Street View Gets Weird.


Google streetview is well known, it’s an easy tool to explore unknown area’s etc.. But there are also some weird and accidental captures by Google’s Streetview car. Check out some bizarre Google Streetview findings.

The Google Drive.


You have to give it up to Google always trying something new or stealing everyone else’s winning idea. By now I’m sure most of us use or at least have a dropbox account, But with only 2 free gigs of space upon sign up it might not be enough unless you pay to upgrade. According to the official blog post, paid tiers are available for 25 GB, 100 GB or 1 TB storage upgrades, priced at $2.49, $4.99 or $49.99 per month, respectively. The question is will you use a Google Drive or does it look like yet another me-too crappy service from Google?  Only time will tell.
