The video below is one of his recent releases titled ‘Forget’. No less remarkable and addictive, the video includes, in addition to Disney audio, input from classic films such as Breakfast at Tiffany’s and Mary Poppins.

This weather device elegantly simulates tomorrow’s forecast in a small translucent box.

Designed by Ken Kawanmoto, the novel device called the ‘Tempescope’ is an ambient physical display that visualizes weather conditions like rain, clouds and lightning.

The device receives weather forecasts from the internet, displaying tomorrow’s forecast in your living room. The Tempescope started as a weekend project, with Kawanmoto making the first prototype from shampoo bottles.

An open source version has been made available for those who want to try their hand at building the device. The team is currently developing a commercial version of the Tempescope which should be ready for release sometime this year.

Visit their website to find out more. You can also watch the video below to see how the device works.

Pedigree’s Sensitive New Spot Attempts To Ease Racial Tensions In US

[Click here to view the video in this article]

Dog food manufacturer Pedigree has launched a new commercial for the US market titled ‘The Walk’.

The commercial was shot in line with the brand’s global ‘Feed the Good’ campaign and shows how dogs can possibly defuse the tension between races.

The story features a seemingly unfriendly old man taking his dog out for a walk in his neighborhood, populated predominantly by African Americans.

His disdain for his neighbors clearly shows in his mannerisms.

The unfavorable atmosphere peaks when he eventually crosses path with a young African American walking his pit bull.

The video takes a positive turn once the owners notice the friendly interaction between their pet canines.

Watch how man’s best friend bridges the gap between these two people in the video blow. Dogs obviously don’t care about races, and maybe we have a thing or two to learn from that.
