Question Box is a new project from a group who call themselves Open Mind. The Question Box is installed in cities where computer technology just isn’t feasible. In fact, most of the people who live in these areas don’t know how to read or write, so even if they could afford something like a cheap Dell or HP, it wouldn’t matter.
The Question Box allows people of the town to ask questions directly while live operators can provide them with answers through a speaker. It’s like a “live” Internet.
Sounds like an awesome idea! Check out the site to watch a video showing how it works or donate to help support the project.
Landon Meier is an expert at creating latex masks which is evidenced by this video in which he gets a friend of his to wear it out in the park with his dear old grandma. This video is really creepy, but it’s funny. Those masks are awesome. I can’t believe how real they look.
It’s in celebration of the life of Les Paul, who was born today on June 9, 1915. He’s one of the most innovative artists in the history of music. Heck, one of the worlds most popular electric guitars, the Gibson Les Paul, was invented by the man himself!
Anyway, back to the Google logo. It’s a playable guitar!
You can play either by dragging your mouse cursor over the strings or using your keyboard. To use your keyboard, just make sure to click outside of the search box or else you’ll type of bunch of gibberish into the search engine 😉
There’s a record button too if you want to share your music with friends. Here’s mine (it’s as far as I can get on the National Anthem) – http://goo.gl/doodle/i0qN
QR codes are similar to barcodes in that they hold information within a matrix which is readable by a scanner designed to read them. I’ve been seeing them everywhere lately. I see them at restaurants and even the little potted plants at Home Depot. I work in the internet marketing industry so I’ve known about QR codes for a long time and I probably notice them more than the average person.
I’ve been wanting to get a tattoo for a long time, but I can’t think of anything I really want, but a few months ago I thought it would be cool to get a QR code tattoo. I thought it was original and super-geeky, which fits me well, but now it’s not so original anymore, as you can see from the image above (borrowed from Geeky Tattoos). So now what should I get a tattoo of?
