So the guy goes out to his car and he looks around for a necktie and discovers that he just doesn't have one. He sees a set of jumper cables in his trunk. In desperation he ties these around his neck, manages to fashion a fairly acceptable looking knot and lets the ends dangle free.

Gender, Boobs, and Video Game Characters by Lisa Wade, PhD, Dec 30, 2010, at 10:51 am Dr. Cai Wilkinson (at the University of Birmingham), YetAnotherGirl, and (surprise surprise) Dmitriy T.M. sent in this humorous flowchart satirizing the design of video game characters. (Source: I Love Charts) In addition to the gender lesson in the flowchart, there are some interesting lesson about who “our” enemies are: demons, monsters, and Russians. Using a similar strategy, Laura McD. sent in a series of images from graphic novels, re-drawn by comic artist Megan Rose Gedris, designed to raise awareness about (the absurdity of) the sexual objectification of women in comics. These remind me of the as-far-as-I-know-non-ironic instructions on how to draw male and female comic book characters that have been sent in by many readers over the years (we’ve lost track of you’all, but send a note and we’ll credit you).

Tablet full of crude jokes and riddles about beer is found - dating from the time of the biblical Exodus By Rob Waugh Updated: 16:52 GMT, 27 January 2012 Crude jokes, beer and a hearty disregard for politicians were part of life in ancient Mesopotamia - 3,500 years ago. A newly translated tablet from the area of present-day Iraq runs through a series of riddles which show that even in 1,500BC, people liked a puzzle. Modern audiences, though, should not expect to have their sides split - or indeed to solve any of the riddles, which are rather tricky (the riddles and their solutions are below). Cuneiform script as seen in a clay tablet, found at Tell-El-Amarna, Egypt: The location of the tablet of riddles is not known, and the study authors worked from a transcription from 1976. 'In your mouth and your teeth (or urine). Answer: Beer. 'The tower is high, but it has no shade.' Answer: Light. He gouged out the eye.

What 8-Bit Video Games Can Teach Us About Design And UX The computer sitting at your desk is far more powerful than anything available to all but the largest businesses in the 1980s, enabling us to continue to add layer upon layer without slowing down, and possibly losing focus on why we are here in the first place – to deliver a high quality product.

While some of the NES library was filler, there were many standouts that used the limitations of 8 bit technology as strengths, rather than weakness. In this article, we’ll learn how to gain inspiration from those interactive icons of yesteryear. Let the past inspire the future! Use Limitations Effectively In the early to mid-80s, abstraction and creativity weren’t design choices, but were a direct result of technological constraints being put to good use. Prepare to get retro. The game world itself is a robot… WHY DID THE CHICKEN CROSS THE ROAD? Plato: For the greater good. Karl Marx: It was a historical inevitability. Ambient Vitaminwater et réalité augmentée pour les Jeux Olympiqu Comme vous le savez, les jeux olympiques de Vancouver se déroulent actuellement au canada (et la france ne s’en sort pas trop mal). Ce type d’événement amène énormément de gens, et les marques et les agences essaient donc de les capter par des dispositifs originaux. Parmi tous les projets, en voici deux. L’un concerne un ambient autour d’un arrêt de bus, et le second touche à la réalité augmentée. 1 – Vitaminwater nous fait chausser les skis en attendant le bus La boisson énergisante Vitaminwater et son agence Brokaw ont transformé un abribus en station de télésiège afin d’immerger un peu plus les adeptes du bus dans l’esprit des jeux. Comme on le voit sur le visuel, ce dispositif est accompagné d’affiches dont le ton est dans le registre habituel de la marque, c’est à dire souvent drôle. Ex : « Don’t try challenging Michael Lambert. Ou encore cette opération du groupe Coca-Cola qui a décoré les toilettes de stations de ski japonaises en 2009 pour son produit Georgia Max Coffee.
