Christian Dior Cell Phones

It’s official, these $5000 phones manufactured in partnership with ModeLabs feature a touchscreen display, camera and mini-phone extender called My Dior. About the size of a USB key, My Dior is linked to the main one by Bluetooth technology and allows you to take/make calls. It is meant to clip onto the outside of your handbag (tsk tsk to those women who put their cell phones into their Gucci bags full of make-up).

Remember how the Japanese and Korean make crystals on phones popular? The Dior phone also embeds Swarovski crystals, so it says something to the Swarovski lovers out there too.

Photographers Bitter Over Polaroid’s Demise

Several weeks ago, the Polaroid Corporation announced it will quit the instant-film business in 2009 (not surprising given the rising of digital photography.)  However, photographers and artists are not happy about this at all.

New York Magazine reports; “Now what the hell am I supposed to do?” asks John Waters, who’s shot a Polaroid of each person who’s come into his apartment since 1992—friends, interviewers, delivery men, everyone. “Digital isn’t instant gratification, and those cameras don’t make that sexy sound.”

I sense a Save Polaroid campaign coming. Save polaroids, save the world?

PA/IN/HK: A Photography Exhibition by PA Gillet

PA/IN/HK

Casting an unconventional eye on the futile things in life – that’s what makes Pierre-Arnaud Gillet tick. Seen through his lens, the invisible becomes outstanding and the insignificant, sublime. The floor-markings are transformed into part-painting, part-raw material, part-photographic pictures. An astonishing representation of an unsuspected reality that P-A Gillet’s precise eye composes through the lens, thus breathing new life into these once hidden treasures. This photography series has been realised in April 2006 in Hong Kong.

From: May 22 to June 15 2008

Location: Kapok Gallery, G/F 9 Dragon Road, Tin Hau, Hong Kong

Ele-vision, Elephant as your cameraman

Tired of man-filmed discovery channel nature shows? Try a nature film documentary that’s filmed by a camera that’s attached to an elephant’s trunk. Now you can enjoy the wild from the trunk of an elephant. Obviously this allows the camera to explore parts of the jungle that would be hard for a crew of humans, but by an elephant that’s part of the jungle? No problem!

Sony Ericsson W380i shuts up easily

I think many find it annoying when your phone rings while you’re in class or in a meeting. (Damn it! I forgot to switch my phone to silent mode!) Then you’d need to go through the whole trouble pressing the buttons to turn it off.

Sony Ericsson Walkman phone’s new member, W380i, can help you in this awkward moment. All you need to do is slide your hand over the sensor on its shell, and the phone would immediately shut up and turn itself into silent mode. (Now wouldn’t it be nice if your girlfriend is made this way too)

W380i looks exactly like other clamshell phones. It uses, however, a brand new Walkman On Top design. The shell also includes a hidden OLED monitor on the outside that can show the usual date/time and battery but also songs’ information when it is in the walkman mode. It’s all in the outside so you don’t need to flip the shell all the time like those annoying clamshell phones.
