Its not a secret that I’m a big fan of the show Rob & Big and Rob Dyrdek’s Fantasy Factory. The last episode introduced a cool new product supposedly sold at Walmart called the Impakt Sidehack. Its a new take on an old product.

I was recently talking to a fellow designer about buying a new tablet because my tablet doesnt even fit in my laptop case. This morning I found an article about a new concept laptop which has the tablet built in under the keyboard. Hopefully Apple will design a more sophisticated version that will incorporate the keyboard.

Be a Hero

DJ Hero Console

DJ Hero Console

Im sure alot of people have heard rumors about DJ Hero, well the rumors are true. If your not a gamer – thats ok- im not one either but these Hero games are pretty fun. Anyone who knows me knows that I am not a big fan of video games anymore, however, the Wii is a great system. In the 80’s I was untouchable in Mario bros. in the 90’s I was all about Sonic and Mortal Kombat, eventually I got playstation but I think I out grew it by that time thats (except GTA 4). It wasnt until 2006 when I met my roomate the real Guitar Hero who introduced me to the game. I thought it was gonna be hard to play until I picked up the guitar and actually played when no one was around. 25 years old and I found myself asking Santa Clause for Guitar Hero for x-mas. Now im 27 and DJ Hero will be on my list pretty soon. I always wanted a DJ set since the late 80’s, watching video music box on public access.  Guitar hero is cool but hip hop has been a big part of my life since I was a little kid. Too bad hip hop is dead. If you pay close attention to new Kid Cudi video- Poke her face, there is a short cameo from DJ Hero. Cudi is one of the featured artist in the game along with the beastie boys, black eyes peas, David Bowie, LL cool J, and many more.

above is a shot of what the game looks like. It doesnt have as many buttons as Guitar Hero but it that doesnt mean it will be easier.

Oh Boy

And if guitars and turntables arent your thing, maybe you’ll like Accordion Hero, lol. This cant be real!
