They say when you lose one sense, your other senses compensate. In the case of 15 year old piano prodigy Kuha’o who has been blind since infancy, his ivory-tickling powers are unparalleled. This video chronicles Kuha’o's first listen to “Cracks” by Freestylers and his attempt to re-create the popular dubstep single on the piano. We’ve almost met our limit when it comes to dubstep and we thought it would be an exercise in futility to emulate its incredibly layered and complicated note structure on such an antiquated instrument, but Kuha’o has restored our faith in music.

Google unveiled its Project Glass heads-up display glasses earlier today. Still in the concept phase, Project Glass would essentially take your smartphone out of your hands and onto your face with the ability to check the weather, get directions, send texts, make calls, and more, thanks to augmented reality. If nothing else, it will definitely bring more hands-free, sci-fi infused interactivity into your life. Get a look at what the glasses can do in the demo video after the break. <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>
I once attended a one man show/drinking game titled "Ghost Rider, My Favorite Movie." It reveled in how ridiculous Mark Steven Johnson's film was and by the time the credits rolled, it was clear everyone packed into that tiny comedy club had a really good time adhering to the drinking game's rules. Well, I don't think that performance will be getting a sequel show, because the trailer for Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance looks like it used the bones of the first film to pick its teeth. There's so much texture here, so much grit and grime that was missing from Johnson's film (arguably the worst Marvel film to date). This looks like a movie that embraces a man with a flaming skull and a leather jacket and knows how to use him.

Oh yeah, one of the big cliches to try and make someone look like a badass. It's become almost as overused as the action hero slow-mo walk as something blows up behind them as they stare forward at the screen. I honestly don't mind it when the person did something badass before, and the pose is just there for them to land it after the fact...but I HATE to no end when they slow-mo the person tilting their head up with really focused eyes after the landing, it just looks lame and cheesy to me every time.
The fourth dimension is space-time, in that something has a width, height, depth, and duration. We live IN the fourth dimension, in that we all have a duration. However, we cannot perceive all of the fourth dimension. We have an understanding of it, but one cannot see his or her entire life at once.
Nice effects, but as a mobile phone afficionado I will start a rant about the mobile phone promoted in this commercial. If you're not interested feel free to skip this thread. *ahem* WHY is there less android mobile phones with physical QWERTY boards?
