Toyota HJ60 1/10th RC Scaler Scratch Styrene Build

Since this blog is becoming more and more something I want to hand over to my son Archie one day I figured I’d start sharing more what he and I do together and this is a fun project thatI’ve been archiving as we went along, so here goes. As a lad I got well into […]

Martian Night Panorama

I am still absolutely aghast and amazed at this incredible high def 360 degree panorama of Mars and the Milky Way filled night sky taken by the Mars Rover.

Beautiful Staff Pick from Vimeo – Box from Bot & Dolly, featuring some great CGI, clever robotic program design, a lovely black and white mood and a great soundtrack. Watch on a retina Mac if you get the chance – beautiful!

Gamification of life: CRED social scoring

Well another day working in the digital business is another day for distraction. I’d score really highly in the distraction ratings. Forget Kred, what’s my Dist score today?! Anyway I was going to write about the emergence of social media scoring into the mainstream with the launch of a new banking product (until @maddywood‘s tweet […]


Close Encounters T Shirt

“If everything’s ready here on the Dark Side of the Moon… play the five tones.” Great idea for a T shirt design.
