Objectified Trailer Sneak Peek

Posted: January 5th, 2009 | Author: | Filed under: gfurry | Tags: , , , , | No Comments »

Here is a 90 second peek at into a new movie about gadgets called Objectified. Looks interesting.

About the Film
Objectified is a feature-length independent documentary about industrial design. It’s a look at the creativity at work behind everything from toothbrushes to tech gadgets. It’s about the people who re-examine, re-evaluate and re-invent our manufactured environment on a daily basis. It’s about personal expression, identity, consumerism, and sustainability. It’s about our relationship to mass-produced objects and, by extension, the people who design them.

Through vérité footage and in-depth conversations, the film documents the creative processes of some of the world’s most influential designers, and looks at how the things they make impact our lives. What can we learn about who we are, and who we want to be, from the objects with which we surround ourselves?

Toy of the week – Monster Outlets to go

Posted: February 6th, 2008 | Author: | Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: , | No Comments »

This week I picked up a nice little 3 outlet surge protector from Monster for my gear bag. It should come in handy at the next airport/hotel/whatever outlet deficient location I stumble upon. Outlets to Go 3 provides safe charging for up to three devices, and prevents overloads with its resettable circuit breaker. Available in 3 sizes the Outlets to Go give you a nice small outlet strip that easily fits in your bag. About $11 on Amazon.
