A treat for nostalgic iPad users.

The design appears to support both landscape and portrait orientations. No details are provided, but it’s likely the device also uses Bluetooth rather than going straight into the dock connector. This is how the iCade works as well, by emulating a Bluetooth keyboard. This system also makes it easier for 3rd party developers to build in support for the accessories.

Atari’s Greatest Hits offers 100 classic Atari games for the iPad and iPhone. It was the first app to provide support for the iCade with several others following.

DVICE reports that the ATARI Joystick uses the dock connector (not bluetooth) and will be available for $60 on October 2nd. at Target.

2011 Nike Mag Auction for Michael J. Fox Foundation Raises Over $5.6 Million USD

In life.art.commerce. on September 21, 2011 at 10:50 am

The unveiling and subsequent auction of the Nike MAG was by and large the biggest sneaker event of the year, if not the decade. Working with The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research, Nike sold 1500 pairs of the sneaker over a 10 day period, raising a total of $5,695,190.53 USD. Much respect to all who participated.

If you recall, Sergey Brin, co-founder of Google, will be matching this number, so in the end over $11,390,381.10 USD will go to charity as a result of this initiative.

Two great car concepts I hope to see cruising the streets soon.

Fisker Surf

The dramatic contours of the Fisker Karma gets translated into shooting brake form with the debut of the company’s second model, the Fisker Surf. The high end hybrid will be powered by the same engine as the Karma, a 2.0 liter 255 hp four-cylinder that works in conjunction with a lithium-ion battery system that gives the car a range of about 300 miles and a 0-60 time of 6.3 seconds.

Is This Art or Stolen Goods?

In art., life. on September 9, 2011 at 12:11 am

I found this article very interesting. Check it out.

Via Huffington Post:

Artist Manuel Palou’s new piece, ‘5 Million Dollars 1 Terabyte straddles the line betweenart and piracy.

The work is described on the gallery’s website as: “a 1 TB Black External Hard Drive containing $5,000,000 worth of illegally downloaded files.” Art 404 adds, “A full list of the files with clickable download links can be found here.”

A companion work, ‘Google Search For Meaning’ (2011), is described as “an installation consisting of a pyramid shaped sculpture jutting out of the wall. A projector opposite of the sculpture projects a hacked version of Google Maps that drives through streetview automatically.”

The work is displayed at Low Budget Gallery, the exhibition space of online portal Art 404, which Palou co-founded to address “the contemporary technological art movement.” But does the work succeed as commentary, or is it merely an exercise in theft?

The Back To Future Part II Nike Air McFly is going into production!

Once known as the greatest shoe never made, the Nike Mag is now a reality. At an event in Los Angeles this evening, Tinker Hatfield, Mark Parker and a group of Nike representatives will make a formal announcement for the return of Marty McFly’s famous power-charged sneakers from the Back to the Future sequel. These bad boys aren’t quite ready to self-lace just yet (and we do mean YET), but they do come equipped with the ability to charge, allowing the wearer to walk around with illuminated feet for a duration of five hours with a simple pinch of the ear.

Steve Stoute: The Tanning Effect

In life.art.commerce. on September 8, 2011 at 11:36 pm

I was surfing the internet this morning and saw this great article on Steve Stoute and his new book and show.

Via Huffington Post:

words by Brennan Williams

Steve Stoute, the former music executive, has long played matchmaker between the popular culture and corporate America. He launched Translation Consultation & Brand Imaging in 2004, and linked Justin Timberlake to McDonald’s for the fast food chain’s “I’m Loving It” campaign, helped seal LeBron James’ partnership with State Farm Insurance, Gwen Stefani’s pact with Hewlett-Packard, Lady Gaga’s deal with MAC Comestics, and Jay-Z’s exclusive line with Reebok.
