The Solar Powered Day For Night Dress

Solar Powered Dress

It’s the fashionable solar powered Day For Night dress! It’s made out of interconnected white circuit boards and RGB LEDs, plus its powered by the sun! Here is a closeup view of each of the tiles…

It looks a bit… scratchy. Anywho, the cool thing is you can program it to display different colors and symbols and anything else you can think of.

Oh No No No I’m A Roller Man

Human Skateboard

Now this would be entertaining…

I wonder what the lights above his elbows are for though. Plus if you get bored rolling on your stomach you can roll over on your back!

Theoretically you can find out more on his site, Buggy Rollin, but the site design is an excellent example of why you don’t create your entire website in Flash.

A Camera Made Of Wood

Olympus Wood Camera

It’s a camera with a crunchy wooden shell and a gooey digital filling! I like the unique look, though I wish the camera looked less like a planchette. Either way it’d be pretty cool to see a larger SLR camera with a wood shell. I wonder how much more this weighs with the wood.

Anywho, Olympus just announced the camera today and they’re tightlipped about a release date.

The Leica D-Lux 3 Is Spiffy

The Leica D-Lux 3 has a 28-112 F2.8 Lens on it. It has a nice figure at 4.2 x 2.3 x 1.0 in, with a weight of 7.8 ounces with the li-ion battery.

Personally I love the classic look.. Plus you can operate the shutter speed and every other setting manually. You can also shoot in either JPEG or RAW. If it had an actual viewfinder this thing would be perfect.

No price or release date but it will probably be in the 700 dollar range.
Full specs and info at Leica USA.

The Yahoo Search Engine Is Weird

I am now the top ranked search for Erik Persson on the Yahoo search directory. The only problem is that the top link goes to the Genealogy page family.erikpersson.com. For some reason, which is completely logical to the Yahoo bots, erikpersson.com is still ranked 15th. To add to the amusement, my Flickr account is ranked 13th.

All this data leads me to believe that Search Engine Optimization is just voodoo and random guessing.

Either way this means I’ve managed to place my name at the top of a popular search engine! This calls for revelry and non-alcoholic beverages!
