Another incredible sculpture here at Zeitgeist made by lawyer-turn-Lego-artist Nathan Sawaya.

He DID reveal one of his small tricks. He uses glue! <smile>

I really like that. I know when I worked with clay and glass sculpture I always wanted to defy gravity like this one is doing with the arms. Thanks for sharing this.

There is this sci-fi book - I don't know the title, and I never read it, but my brother told me the argument - about this kid who plays a strategy war game, kind like a training for a real war. At the last moment the kid wins and supposedly he's prepared to go to war... only there is no more war, he already won it.

My point is, once it is no longer a "real problem", or "work", or a "responsibility", we can afford to be imaginative and take risks... and maybe strike gold.

For your party tonight

Singboard is a cool app, does karaoke in a new way.

++++++++++++++


Ray Chan, Co-Founder and CEO of Singboard, and his partners arrived at 500 Startups with an idea for a photo-sharing app. After initial feedback for the app was luke warm, however, things changed drastically. Based on the fact that, according to Chan, karaoke bars in the U.S. paled in comparison to their native Hong Kong, the team regrouped, came up with a new idea and Singboard was born.

“Basically, [Singboard] is where YouTube meets karaoke,” says Chan. “It is a much more improved experience of online karaoke…We will get all the latest and most popular music videos from YouTube, and we will overlay the lyrics on top of the videos, and the lyrics will provide a karaoke-like feature, so that you can sing along with it and enjoy a really good singing experience.”

Singboard’s technology streams different content at the same time, allowing you to turn off the vocals on a video and play just the music. You can choose from among the top 100 music videos on YouTube, and, because the service is on your computer as opposed to on a machine in a bar, you can stop, rewind and replay songs as often as you like. You can even record your own version of a song and share it with friends on Facebook or Twitter.

Singboard will likely be offered to users based on the freemium model, where you can play a certain number of songs for free but will have to pay a monthly subscription fee for unlimited access. The app is currently in private beta, but Chan says they are pleased with the initial response.

“So far the feedback is really positive,” says Chan. “People just want to have more songs so that they can find their favorite songs to sing.”
