Lego Man in Space

Lego Man in Space







Two Seventeen year old Canadian guys using off the shelf technology send a lego man holding a Canadian Flag into near space.  The first vid is the original edit, the second video shows how it was done and interviews the dudes who made the device.  Koldsmoke loves that they had to stop looking for the space craft because they had to go to school the next day…they couldn’t go looking until the next weekend. What a week!

Powertrekk | A fuel cell charger for instant power anywhere

Don’t get too exited, although at first glance this looks amazing.  Add water, and boom, power for your usb devices.  The more I looked into this the less enthusiastic I became, the water aspect is cool, but the 12$ power puck that wears out over an indeterminate number of charges(couldn’t find how long the puck would last in any sort of understandable format) is not as cool.  This is an amazing idea, and why I am including this post on Koldsmoke, but for 199$ plus the 12$ pucks, that are much bigger than a AA cell, I’m not going to race out and buy one, not when there are alternatives like the Elecom AA iphone charger which is essentially the same thing-without the water, and instead of pucks, (that are nearly the size of the hockey variety) 4 AA cells.  Keep your eye on this company and see how they do in the future.

Liquid Image Ego Cam

Coming in June, Liquid Image Ego cam.  150 bucks, full 1080p HD, and many colours, this is positioned to be an alternative to the GOPRO Hero2, not a ‘me too’ offering like what  AEE has.  Wifi connectivity built in(gopro hero2 has a wifi backpack ad on), which is good, apparently no bluetooth which is bad(wifi on those mountain peaks is not here yet!).  No screen on the back; so bad, unless there is wifi and you can set up your shot via your smartphone.  At 150 dollars, and similar specs to the Gopro hero2, and waterproof to 10 feet without protective housing, on paper it looks like a great way to get into the pov market without throwing down 300 bucks for a Hero2.

Haywire Official Trailer




















It has to be better than Salt.  It just has to be.  Gina Carano as the lead, looks as though she could actually beat the crap out of people, and her MMA background lends credibility to this look.  If she can’t act, well there are a number of [ahem] heavy hitters to support her.  Well, Tatum is ah well, never mind.  Sodebergh directs, which means it will look and sound awesome.

Moonrise Kingdom









Wes’s usuals, and many other stars.  Moonrise Kingdom.  Looks like the best since the Tenenbaums, although it is worth mentioning Life Aquatic and The Darjeeling Limited were no slouches.  The soundtrack will not suck either.  May 16, 2012.
