Inspired a visit to Delhi, where the diversity and flair of Sikh headwear wowed him, Ash Singh set out to celebrate turban fashion worldwide. And what better way to do that than throw the whole operation open to the Web, where people can rate each headdress on a scale from “ok” to “super”?
They’re exploring the deep sea and distant planets. They’re saving lives in the operating room and on the battlefield. They’re transforming factory floors and filmmaking. They’re – oh c’mon, they’re just plain cool! From Qrio to the Terminator, here are our absolute favorites (at least for now).
From Wired Magazine with love: a nifty trip down memory lane that also doubles as a nerd test! There are plenty of familiar faux faces here, just waiting to say hi. R2D2, Hal 9000, Robby the Robot, Optimus Prime, the “classic sexbot” from “Metropolis,” the Terminator, and the Iron Giant all show up for the party. We were pleased to see the attack droids from the 1984 Tom Selleck sci-fi thriller “Runaway” and David Hasseloff’s first lifesaver, Kitt, the “smooth-talking, self-driving” Trans Am from “Knight Rider.” Even the Tin Woodman, “though technically a cyborg,” makes an appearance. Yeah, a lot of this stuff is super geeky (Autonomous Benthic Explorer, anyone?), but what can we say? Nerd out and see how you score out of fifty.
I found excellent set of photos on taken by Scott Stulberg. All photos are shooting in Southeast Asia. It has different categories like the natural world, Serendipity, Mirror Mirror, Shades of Gray, Eye to Eye etc. Check it out yourself.
Sadly, screenshotit’s time to say goodbye to an iconic symbol of London. The last double-decker bus retires today from its long years of service to the city. The red buses, which allowed passengers and mischievious boys hop on/hop off privileges, may be gone, but they will never be forgotten.
Through a selection of lovingly detailed photographs, this site celebrates the classic Routemaster. The drivers, the conductors, and the public who ride all appear in this tribute to the much-loved mode of transportation. Though the vehicle’s retirement may be controversial (81% of Londoners wanted them to stay), sites like this will help keep our memories alive of the red Routemaster, that shining star of London tourist postcards and photos.

Recently, I found a new website called stickcricket.com. Cricket had become well established in India. You can play stick cricket and much more. You may need to register. You need to score as many runs as possible in twenty overs. “Cricket Academy” allows the player to practice batting against different bowlers with different bowling styles. Stick cricket multiplayer allows the player to play online against people from all over the world.
Tall building are part of our modern world. As geek I always find it fascinating and SkyscraperPage is well worth a look. Here you can find information each city by using the cities link at the top and working your way through to the navigation system to the building you want. On each building’s page you’ll find details of its height, purpose, when it was built, and where an illustration is available it will be displayed here too. Each page carries pictures of building (using pixel art) they are amazing. Special note should be given to the Evolution of a Skyscraper and World’s Tallest Buildings sections. More information regarding worlds top 200 building can be found at Emporis top 200 tallest buildings list.
