A fascinating round of the hit smartphone game “Draw Something” surfaced yesterday. This fella has a unique way of drawing.

App Removes Bystanders From Pics

In another “never ceases to amaze me” moment, a company has created an app that will literally take out wandering pedestrians from your shot on your smartphone. As the video shows below, you set up a shot and then after taking the pic it will allow you to remove people or unwanted passing objects from the shot. According to the article “the app is presently still in the prototype stage, but a full version should be ready for a demonstration later this month, at the 2012 Mobile World Conference in Barcelona”. Check out these pics or see the video demonstration below.

Awesome Game Boy/iPod Mod

I stumbled across a very ingenious (albeit old) mod that combines an iPod with a Game Boy. The guy hollowed out an old Game Boy and the iPod fits perfectly into the screen with a little help of some padding on the inside. He even went as far as to make the Game Boy’s buttons control the iPod. I realize that today the iPod itself in this version is outdated so this is kinda like having a hi-fi stereo that looks like a Victrola, but it’s still neat.

I’m sure nowadays he’d be talking about how the same games are poisoning children’s minds, but here he’s just doing his old job. It’s interesting to see how people explained something that is so commonplace today.
