The Miracle Machine, which promises to turn water, yeast, grape concentrate, and finishing powder packets into a DIY wine. Just sync the machine up with its corresponding iOS or Android app, mix in the ingredients, and then give it three days. After 72 hours, wine will appear where there was once just water (and those other ingredients). Choose from six varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Chardonnay, Oregon Pinot Noir, a Tuscan blend, Sonoma Sauvignon Blanc, and a red and white from Burgundy. The makers say despite the brand newness of it all, the wine will taste likes it’s been aged to perfection.

Designed by artist Kanye West, the shoe features a molded rear sculpted reptilian-influenced spike, locked down by an engineered strap to offer a greater sense of symmetry. The ‘Air Yeezy II Red October’s’ have been developed in an all red colorway, referencing the design of the ‘NIKE air tech challenge II tennis shoe outsole’, celebrating the NIKE cross training silhouettes with the addition of the molded forefoot strap. After months of delayed releases, NIKE officially launched the long-awaited ‘Air Yeezy II Red October’ as a surprise, instantly selling out 11 minutes after being announced via the @nikestore twitter page.

The First 6K, Red Dragon Footage Surfaces.


red_vogue_1

After a considerable delay from its slated late 2012 release date, the 6K Red Dragon sensor is finally ready — and it seems to have been worth the wait. The first test footage (after the break) has come from cinematographer and Red booster Mark Toia, who stress-tested it in difficult conditions like high contrast daylight and dark night scenes. Afterwards, he said the camera has three more f-stops of dynamic range than the MX-equipped Epic and thinks the new sensor brings the “best highlight falloff I’ve ever seen from any digital camera,” including Sony’s $65,000 CineAlta F65 4K model. Though Red put on a show of upgrading Epic and Epic-X cameras with Dragon earlier this spring, the company recently said that deliveries would start in September. Meanwhile, Dragon equipped cameras are in the hands of other notable DPs and directors too, like Peter Jackson, Michael Bay and Darius Woski — meaning you can likely expect a deluge of Dragon eye-candy over the coming weeks.

Microsoft Making A Smartwatch

As Apple continue to hire talent to work on their supposed “iWatch” project, Microsoft are rumored to already be planning to retaliate with a smartwatch of their own. Several weeks back it was reported that Microsoft placed orders for 1.5″ screens and now trusted sources have told AmongTech that the smartwatch is already being used as prototype and will be available in a variety of colors – blue, red, yellow, black, white, and grey. The outside housing will be made from Oxynitride Aluminium – a type of aluminium that is 80% transparent and four times harder than glass. The source also said that the device will include an adapted version of Windows 8 and will work with Cloud storage (plus 6GB internal storage) and 4G LTE. If the rumors turn out to be true, expect this to be unveiled sometime in late 2014.

Twitter ‘Hate Map’


screen-shot-2013-05-14-at-1-41-43-pm

Students at Humboldt State University in California individually reviewed 150,000 geocoded tweets containing racist, homophobic, or otherwise offensive terms to build a “hate map” indicating where people in the U.S. are most bigoted. Or, at least, where they’re the most open about displaying their antisocial views. The picture doesn’t look good for the Eastern states, although admittedly the bulk of the population is there as well. Areas in Virginia, North Carolina, Texas, and Alabama show up bright red on the map, as do areas in more central states Indiana, Iowa, and Minnesota. The map is part of a larger project, called the Geography of Hate, by Humboldt State professor Dr. Monica Stephens. The data that forms the map comes from an analysis of every tweet posted between June 2012 and April 2013 that contained at least one of 10 designated “hate words,” including dyke, fag, chink, gook, wetback, and cripple.

But while the original list of tweets was generated by a machine, every single one of the 150,000 tweets containing one of the target words was individually examined by undergraduate students. As the project description states:

Because algorithmic sentiment analysis would automatically classify any tweet containing “hate words” as “negative,” this project relied upon the HSU students to read the entirety of tweet and classify it as positive, neutral or negative based on a predefined rubric. Only those tweets that were identified by human readers as negative were used in this analysis.

To protect the identity of potentially racist, homophobic, or otherwise bigoted Twitter users, the tweets were aggregated up to the county level, and counties with high levels of hate speech were colored red on the map. Areas with moderate levels — though still higher than the national average — are varying shades of blue, and unshaded areas were below the national average. Smaller towns seem to have a higher incidence of hate speech — in Virginia, for example, Palmyra is more hateful on Twitter than Richmond. And in Louisiana, New Orleans and Baton Rouge are less hateful than smaller towns nearby.

“Przelany” Armchair by Wamhouse


 

03 01Polish design studio WAMHOUSE recently has created the new armchair “Przelany”. At the first look it looks more like a digital art piece than an actual armchair. The chair seems to be modeled after a pot pouring out coffee – the main chair is shaped like a pot and the way the back of the seat sprays out like a splash of liquid is slightly unreal. The spilling back of the Przelany Armchair is designed two colors – chocolate and red.

‘Bêtes de Mode’: Fashion vs. Animals.


For this series titled “Bêtes de mode” (Fashion Animals) by HELMO, blue portraits and red animal portraits are superimposed then and displayed in the windows of the Lafayette Galleries on Hausmann Boulevard. A system of colored gels colored blue and red on the panes makes it possible to see the portrait mode sometimes, and sometimes the animal portrait. For this installation, the optical system of the gelatines of color was replaced by projection lights, – red and blue. The images are fairly large in scale (5×8 meters)… Check the method.

Game’s R.E.D. Album Debut’s At Number 1.


After more delays than a space shuttle launch, Compton rapper the Game will finally have his reward next week when his endlessly pushed-back fourth effort, The R.E.D. Album, debuts at #1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart. According to figures provided by SoundScan, the disc moved just under 98,000 copies, enough to grab the top spot but well below the first-week figures for his 2008 album LAX, which opened with 239,000 in sales.  Either way, it’s just enough to beat out Jay-Z and Kanye West’s Watch the Throne, which drops to #2 in its third week, as sales dove 47 percent to 94,000 for a three-week total just north of 707,000.

Where Is The Red?

About 2 years ago, I took a trip to London, and got my wallet jacket.  So with no money, no I.D., no credit cards, or travelers checks, my friend and I decided to play a little game with people to make some money.  It’s called by many names all over the world, but its the same basic concept.  It consists of an item (a ball, wadded up piece of news paper, or whatever) underneath a cup, or bottle cap, and the “controller” scrambles them around, and you have to pick which one said item is under.  We’ve all seen it a million times, and when you play for subway money, the controller tends to cheat.  But when you play online there’s no cheating, just an absurd amount of speed that the computer can put on spins.  So try your luck, do you best, and click the pic to figure out where the ‘red’ is.

Game Talks About His Lupe Collab.


The Game’s new R.E.D. album may not be as highly anticipated as Dr. Dre’s Detox, but it’s still got the streets looking out for it.  Among one of the least expected collaborations to appear on the album is Game’s track with Lupe Fiasco entitled ‘Skate On’.  Game took some time to talk about the collab, how it came about, and also touched on Lupe’s comment about Barack Obama.

For those of you who didn’t know what all the hoopla was about, concerning Lupe and President Obama, you can read all about it below.

“To me,” Lupe began, “the biggest terrorist is Obama in the United States of America. I’m trying to fight the terrorism that’s causing the other forms of terrorism. You know the root cause of terrorists is the stuff the U.S. government allows to happen. The foreign policies that we have in place in different countries that inspire people to become terrorists.”

When asked if who he’ll vote for come 2012, he echoed the sentiments of “Words I Never Said,” saying he doesn’t plan on participating in the voting process because he doesn’t believe he can fully support any candidate.

“No, I don’t vote,” he said. “I don’t get involved in politics. It’s meaningless. If I’m going to say I stand behind this person and write on a piece of paper that says, ‘Yeah, I stand for this person,’ then I have to take responsibility for everything he does cause that’s just who I am as a human being. So politicians aren’t going to do that because I don’t want you to bomb some village in the middle of nowhere.”

Fiasco‘s anti-establishment stance is well documented. For those just now being introduced to him, look no further than his latest single, “Words I Never Said,” for his views on politics.

New School/Old School Arcade Games.


So, who’s got game? We found these old-school tables in Australia at Arcade Tables. The company has been making the coffee-table size arcade tables, which were popular about 30 years ago, since 2001.  While the newly designed tables are more stylish, they’re still filled with the classic video-arcade games of the 1980s including Space Invaders, PacMan, Donkey Kong, Scramble, Galaga and more.

The tables come with 60 pre-loaded classic games that include all the original soundtracks and graphics. The company reports that its arcade tables are being played on in Australia, New Zealand, the UAE and the UK. The tables are being delivered to private households, as well as to commercial clients, such as bars, lounges, cafes and even workplaces. The units weigh about 165 pounds and can be stationary or made mobile with attachable castors.

These tables are home décor friendly with sleek designs and come in various colors.  The Stealth, the newest product, is offered in both black and white glossy variants, which are listed as “Deep Space Obsidian” and “Supernova White.”  The glass-top surface of the tables is one-half-inch thick tempered, tinted glass with beveled edges and a rubber seal to ensure durability. Along with the arcade tables, the company also sells complementing stools and accessory pieces. The various stools are uniquely decorative.

G-Funk Homeless Beatboxer.


My homeboy Mike Tudor put me up on this video over a year ago, but it recently came back up in conversation, and I felt the need to post it up. The beatboxer in the video goes by the name “Red” and is said to have locked down an industry deal soon after this video blew up. At the time the video was shot, Red was allegedly homeless, and outside behind a performance venue doing his thing for the camera. Check the method.
