Intriguing pieces of art were constructed by two German artists. They named the installations “power eater” and “tower of consumption.” Could these artworks define the fusion of art and technology?

In the arrival of  modern age, technology and art become intertwined entities. From time to time, there are artworks which catches the attention of people. In this occasion, two German artists built a fortress like no other.

The artists named Ralf Schmerberg and Esa Ott created the installations called ‘Stromfresser’ and “tower of consumption.” It was built using 312 refrigerators.The word ‘stromfresser’ literally means “power eater.” On the other hand, the “tower of consumption” is  totally plugged in and its electrical consumption is measured by means of a power meter.

When asked about their inspiration, Schmerberg said that, “We are playing with this fetish that we think we have a better life if we use better electronic devices — it’s totally bull****.” Well, actually Ralf, if we lived in that thing — and if you were to replace a few of the existing refrigerators with a tricked-out kegerator fridge, an HDTV fridge and a robotic boombox fridge — life would be pretty dang sweet.”

Dell Duo: The Promo Video

Written on November 07, 2010 by Adam Eve

Dell Duo is starring in its own promo video. But it's better to have that than nothing, as many tech enthusiasts know that Dell is not forth-coming when it comes to hands-on previews.

The Dell Duo impressed the many tech fans when it was unveiled last September. It only look like a regular tablet, but it turns out that it was actually convertible. The Dell Duo’s flipping mechanism is a very innovative design. But it is also obvious that many journalists were eager to look at the device. However, Dell is not that really good when it comes to hands-on previews for the media. It is known that the Dell Duo is packed with a 10-inch display and a dual-core Atom, but that’s it.

Good thing, though, Dell got a nifty promo video featuring what the device can do. No specific launch date yet, but Dell promises that it will hit glasses before the year ends. You can check out the video after the jump.

Mysterio Cosplayers, the New PlayStation Move Endorsers

Written on September 14, 2010 by Adam Eve

Uninvited guess coming to your party can be an extreme surprise, but two unknown individuals with orbs as their head is weird. And to make it more creepy, they'll offer you a joystick from Sony.

In an effort to promote the launching of PlayStation Move, Sony sought the help of Lars Åndheim to shoot what seems like a very odd campaign. According to the director himself, taking the spotlight are two MoveMen characters — a man and a woman — who have their heads replaced with colored orbs. And as creepy as it seems, the MoveMen will fish for your Facebook for any mentions of parties and will make a gate crash to say “Wii want you to play.” Let’s just cross our fingers that Sony will bring its MoveMen to the upcoming Tokyo Game Show, just so we can see them brawl with XBox 360’s ball-head mascot.

A clip of the said odd PlayStation Move campaign is posted after the jump.

Kindle 3 Hits iPad on its New TV Ad

Written on September 14, 2010 by Charles Bass

"It's a Kindle. A $139. I payed more for this sunglasses." The Kindle 3 TV ad aims to dethrone iPad.

Amazon has thrown on purpose a blow over over Apple, when they released a TV ad that takes on the shortcomings of Apple iPad.

The ad was aired today at Good Morning America. It promotes the new Kindle 3 and its $139 price. Much lower than the iPad. It actually mocks the Apple gadget and the comparison is quite reasonable. Two of the main key points of Amazon is that with iPad it is impossible to read when the sun is up and all bright. And the fact that Kindle costs far less than iPad.
Kindle 3 may not have the color, but with the large market place to shop for apps and the screen is better. All the more it is more responsive, updated via e-ink screen and month’s worth of battery life more affordable that price point.

Amazon throughly believes that the product’s price will convince people to buy the device and make it more popular than iPad. It has done pretty good, considering the fact that Kindle 3 is now the fastest selling Kindle ever.

YouTube Turns Pay-Per-View

It is being buzzed today that YouTube will soon serve as a pay-per-view platform for Hollywood movies. Does that mean that we can no longer broadcast ourselves and be famous, just like what happened to Justin Bieber? Can we no longer watch online videos without charge? Oh no!

According to Financial Times, YouTube is making a deal with major American movie studios to launch a global pay-per-view service by the end of 2010. YouTube’s popularity, plus Google’s search technology dominance, could make a fresh revenue model to compensate falling DVD sales. And this can be YouTube’s way of generating more income.
