Happy hump day! Today’s brief covers Apple’s iPad 2 event, augmented reality online shopping possibilities, fly like Superman, Charlie Sheen on Twitter, the five-second rule is no more, bananas in plastic bags, and more.
Here’s what caught my eye today:
2. Augmented reality online shopping – a very cool concept, but hasn’t quite hit the target in terms of implementation. Two new products revealed at the DEMO Spring conference take a stab at solving this problem but don’t quite get there. Augmented reality + Microsoft’s Kinect technology is a good marriage, but we’re not there, just yet, in terms of precision fit and style. [Mashable]
5. In more Charlie Sheen fun, superhero impersonations. [Daily What]
7. Speaking of food, this week’s Economist has a great article on the problem of how to feed 9 billion people. [Economist]
8. Want to fly like Superman? Check this out. [Engadget]
9. The first rule of fight club is that you don’t talk about fight club. Or take videos. Unless you want to get caught. Boys from a Tacoma, Washington middle school were expelled after a video surfaced of a fight club taking place on school property. [NY Daily News]
10. Still play by the five-second rule? You shouldn’t, and probably won’t, after reading this article. [NYTimes]
