Fully functional camera Halloween costume

This is a pretty cool Halloween costume. A fully functional camera. You will surely be the center of attention at the Halloween party.

This is not a camera trick (pun intended). It’s really a fully functional camera. Check out the making video.

The only sad thing is that you won’t appear in your own camera. (unless you do those cam whore shots in the toilet)

Integral Day

This blog post is a day too late. I just discovered that yesterday, 29 October, is Integral Day. Yes, that Integral we learn in school during Calculus.

The Integral Symbol was first introduced on 29 Oct 1675 by German German philosopher and mathematician Gottfried Leibniz. The symbol was based on the long s character, and was chosen because Leibniz thought of the integral as an infinite sum of infinitesimal summands.

Before we go on, I want to let you know that I hate Calculus (together with Integral, differentiation and everything Calculus). No, actually I don’t just hate Calculus. I hate Calculus to the power of infinity. In fact, if Facebook, Twitter and Blog exits during the days when I’m was in school studying Calculus, I bet they will be filled with vulgarities scolding all the mathematician that came up with all these theories. Sometimes I think they did it on purpose so that students all over the world will sweat and cry over their theories for centuries.

During my Secondary school days, one of my crazy ambition was to be a mathematician so that I can come up with a even more difficult math theory than Calculus and cause extreme hardship to students born after me. Luckily I didn’t do well in maths and the world we know now is a better place.

The last time I used Calculus was at the exam hall. After that, I never find myself in a situation where I ever need to use Calculus. I bet I’m not the only person. And honestly, I’m glad I never land myself in a situation where I need to use Calculus to save my life. I’ll most likely die before I complete writing the Integral symbol. Don’t get me wrong. I know Calculus is important. But I just hate it. Hate it, hate it, hate it, hate it, hate it, hate it, hate it, hate it, hate it……..

Anyway, enough of ranting. Happy belated Integral Day to all you maths lovers out there. To learn more about the history of Integral, check out this Wired article.

The Greatest Awesome Gamer In Thailand

Check out this interesting video from Thailand.

Now, before you laugh, the guy’s name is Rungkij Tsanon and he is a professional gamer working for Galaxy Group company in Thailand. He was hired by the company as a presenter to promote shooting games and give advises to new players because of his talent.

I must say that it’s actually quite entertaining to watch him play. And hey, its not easy ok. You need to remember every part of the game to do that.

Vitamin Water

If you think Vitamin Water is good for you, watch this video.

“No consumer could reasonably be misled into thinking vitaminwater was a healthy beverage.”

PS: I’ve never tried Vitamin Water and I don’t know how true is this video. You make your own judgement.

Battlefield 3 Launch Trailer

Fans of the Battlefield franchise will be glad that the wait is finally coming to an end. If you are from Singapore, you should be able to start playing Battlefield 3 in exactly 2 hours.

It is interesting that EA Singapore doesn’t have a physical launch event in Singapore (or maybe there is one but I don’t know). I guess instead of queuing up, most of the fans have already pre-ordered from Origin and downloaded the game. Just waiting for midnight before firing the first shot.

For me, I guess I might be buying the PC Limited Edition Package. Call me old skool. But I still prefer holding the physical copy of a game. Especially when they have such beautiful artwork.
