Behold -- The Scroll! - April 20, 2008

(Reconditioning Batteries)

The other day, Seth (one of my best buddies) sent me an email about some crazy tech gadget he bought at an electronics trade show in San Diego. It was insane looking -- a scroll like all-in-one device that, when unfurled, sheltered a paper thin peripheral.

Seth said he paid over a thousand dollars for it at the trade show, which I completely believed because Seth has spent much more money on ridiculously useless gadgets in the past. I was blown away by the concept of the scroll. I had no idea anything like that existed. Then again, I just purchased my first brand new computer a few weeks ago. I'm not exactly tech-savvy.

The next day, Seth called me while I was doing laundry at the local ghetto laundromat.

"So what do you think about that cool device I bought? Pretty slick, huh?"

"Yeah dude, that's nuts! I can't believe you blew a grand on it, but it's pretty sick."



Seth caved in and told me that he didn't buy the scroll device, but that he designed it on his computer using , a program he's been fooling around with for a couple years. In a nutshell, he took a picture of his hands outstretched and then moved the designed 3D object into the picture, making it look like he was actually holding it. I felt like an idiot, but I was totally impressed about how he managed to blend real world photography and synthesized objects into a believable pictoral without any formal training or tutelage. I think that's pretty bad ass.

Seth's website that showcases the scroll can be found . KungFu Mike's introduction to basic modern technology classes can be found .

That's so unfair... I so wanted me one of them! Seth is pretty damn good at design.
