Lego Calendar by Vitamins

The Lego calendar is a wall mounted time planner that we invented for our studio. It’s made entirely of Lego, but if you take a photo of it with a smartphone all of the events and timings will be magically synchronised to an online, digital calendar. It makes the most of the tangibility of physical objects, and the ubiquity of digital platforms, and it’s also puts a smile on our faces when we use it!

For more info visit  Vitamins is a design and invention studio based in London, working in the spaces between science, technology, business and wonder. Over the past few years they’ve worked for companies such as Samsung, Nokia, Burton, and the BBC including it’s show, Genius with Dave Gorman.

“Genius” is a show you might want to check out if you’re interested in invention and innovative ideas. Each week, host Dave Gorman and a celebrity guest judge the various strange, wacky and totally unworkable ideas sent by the public to the show via the BBC website in the hope they will find something that is genius. In the end however, only one person can take home the coveted Genius Trophy.

Code will be shared online soon!

Hunted Series from X-Files Writer/Producer Premieres on Cinemax Tonight

New thriller series Hunted premieres tonight on Cinemax at 10 pm/9 Central.

Former award-winning writer/producer for The X-Files, Frank Spotnitz is at it again with a smart new action series called Hunted. The series focuses on Sam Hunter, a private security operative for the elite private intelligence and security firm Byzantium. Sam is played by Melissa George (Alias, In Treatment) and portrays whatever her assignment calls for; from sexy to sullen, and clever to crazy her character is a force to be reckoned with.  She proves that during the first opening minutes of the show by kicking, punching, snapping necks and shooting a bunch of attackers.

If you’re a fan of The X-Files and the mystery and suspense of the show then you’re sure to be a fan of Hunted. Although unlike The X-Files, Hunted is more complex and needs to be watched in order as more of the plot is revealed throughout the episodes.

Spotnitz tells Wired, “In a traditional spy story, we assume our spies are the good guys,” said Spotnitz, who huddled for six months with three other writers and a story editor to make sure all the pieces fit together. “Whether or not everything the U.S. or British government does is good, I think we take it for granted that they’re trying to do the right thing. But when you enter the private world, you can make no such assumptions. Private interests are trying to accumulate wealth and power, and whether that serves the public interest or a greater good is purely incidental. I thought this was an extremely interesting subject worth exploring.”
