    This is the video resulting from Jos Stiglingh flying a drone with a GoPro attached through a West Palm Beach fireworks display. It's inspired me to rent a hot air balloon and watch the local fireworks display from the sky next year. "They will never let you do that." I don'... / Continue →

    This is a video demonstration of MIT Media Lab's inFORM Shape Display. It's like one of those novelty pins-and-needle art displays you press your hand or face into, except you're doing it from far away using a Kinect (so it's not very much like one of those at all). Still, it... / Continue →

    This is a video demonstration of Aquatop, an interactive display projected onto the surface of a milky bath (made using bath salts -- actual bath salts, not the drug that makes you want to eat other people's faces) using a projector and Kinect motion controller. I am going to ... / Continue →

    This is a functional concept of a Coke machine (although this one is just a cooler) with a clear front display created by Licht-con Produktions that's capable of playing translucent animations to attract customers. Will it get me to stop and look? Yes. Will it get me to buy ... / Continue →

    This is a video of a Huffington Post reporter playing a game of Fruit Ninja on a Displair, a motion-controlled display projected onto a cloud of vapor. Obviously, Fruit Ninja was the perfect game to play because it really allows you appreciate the potential applications of a s... / Continue →

    Some people go all out with crazy Christmas decorations. Some go all out for Halloween. And then there's this crazy person who made a bunch of Star Wars character scarecrows and put them on display in their front yard, hopefully year round. And even if they don't leave them ... / Continue →

    This is a LEGO Star Wars toy display with some holographic video effects. Do they have them at Toys R Us? No clue, I got banned from the nearest one for bicycle jousting in the store. Dammit, I was gonna buy something! No I wasn't. I was gonna peg my friend with a dodgebal... / Continue →

    THE SIGN SAYS NO TOUCHING, LADY! This was the coolest thing on display at the recent Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Granted I didn't go, but I showed this video (and ONLY this video. Okay, plus a cat one) to a couple friends and they agreed. It's a smart window fro... / Continue →

    This is a little Angry Birds level recreated entirely out of LEGO by Flickr user SavaTheAggie. "Angry Birds is stupid!" Is it? Then why have I 3-starred every level ever created AND found all the golden eggs? "I don't know, because you spend a lot on the john with your iPho... / Continue →

    This is a video of Microsoft's interactive Holodesk 3-D See-Through Display. Using it, you can manipulate virtual objects with your hands. Unfortunately, you can't actually "feel" the objects, making this 3-D rendering of a titty I just spent the last 30 minutes making in Aut... / Continue →

    NOTE: Video is after the jump. The pCubee isn't just poorly named, it's a "perspective-corrected handheld cubic display". Well look at you and your fancy terminology! I'm a devilishly dapper purveyor of fine interwebs. WELL I AM! The pCubee is a cube that fits right in you... / Continue →

    That is one looong phone. It certainly brings new meaning to the phrase "long distance calling" doesn't it? No, it doesn't, and that didn't make any freaking sense. If you thought it did you should see someone. Like me -- I love crazy people. So what we have here is the "... / Continue →

    This is a diagram from the patent Apple filed on the 20th for a 3-D Holographic Display. The patent application goes on to assert that two-dimensional projections of 3-D scenes are inadequate. "Without the benefit of 3-D rendering, even high quality images that have excellen... / Continue →

    Philips recently filed a patent for a video game system that includes a durable monitor that you can toss around as part of gameplay. WTF, you say? Indeed. The information included in the patent doesn't make much sense (although you can read it after the jump), so I'll just ... / Continue →
