    ‘Legends of the Hidden Temple’ Coming Back as TV Movie

    Conventional wisdom would suggest that a popular game show like Nickelodeon‘s Legends of the Hidden Temple would be ripe for a reboot, especially in today’s 90s-obsessed culture.

    Flight of the Conchords Announces American Tour

    Could New Zealand‘s fourth-most popular folk hip-hop duo make it in America after all? That appears to be the optimism behind the recent announcement of a Flight of the Conchords United States tour, made via the band’s website (and, presumably, a flier on the bulletin board in the New Zealand Consulate lobby).

    Soylent: Modular Nutritional Drinks and Powders

    The young entrepreneurs of today are sometimes accused of not understanding anything about history or the world, just bounding through market tests and focus groups without any regard for good taste and decorum.

    Zero Scooter From Bel & Bel

    The first Segway-style self-balancing scooter is now a reality thanks to design firm Bel & Bel (although one could plausibly make the argument that the Segway was actually enough of a scooter to count as one).

    ‘Where’s Waldo? 360′: VR ‘Where’s Waldo?’ Variant (Video)

    I guess Where’s Waldo? is just kind of floating in the air these days.  Last fall there was Where’s Wookiee?, and earlier this month we had Where’s Warhol?

    Back in the old days, playing music at a party just required a good record collection (or maybe even a radio), and some decent speakers. But we live in a more complex world now, and many a party has been dampened by the hassle of switching out phones in order to play different songs.  This […]
