King of Pop – Still Alive !?!

9 07 2010

MJ [1958 - ????]

On 25th June 2009, people around the world got a huge shock when they got to know that the undisputed King of Pop – Michael Jackson had passed away. The music industry, critics, media, and especially the fans were shattered with this news because Michael Jackson was supposed to make a comeback with a series of ‘final’ concerts in London called “This is it” and the fans of the man were really looking forward on these final live performances, which incidentally had been the mega star’s forte. Even the tickets for the concerts were sold out months before the concerts were scheduled to happen.

3D Fashion Eyewear – A Reality in the Offing

16 05 2010

Picture this – You’re watching a 3D Movie with a pair of 3D glasses sitting comfortably on your nose and the person sitting next to you blurts out “Nice glasses, where did you get them from…?”.

The way 3D glasses have been designed till now with cheap materials being used both for the frame as well as the glasses, this kind of a scenario seems far from reality. And with 3D venturing into the Homes with 3D LCD and LED HDTVs, the scenario only gets worse.

But, wait no more. An Australian company is trying to change the way we experience 3D.

You can pick from a range of frames from the Disposables Collection, Movie Collection, Designer Collection or Directors Collection. Read the rest of this entry »
