January 24th, 2006 · Comments Off on Tasty packaging

“This Japanese packaging is functional and well-designed. Without knowing the product, you can simply observe that it is a banana juice beverage. I anticipate, and hope, that this company will extend this theme to other fruits like oranges, apples, and strawberries where the packaging would have to be differentiated on color and texture.” Tasty juice-box […]

Model World

January 24th, 2006 · Comments Off on Model World

Fans play TV series

January 13th, 2006 · Comments Off on Fans play TV series

“Lost” is the first television program that owes its soul to video games. Remember the feeling you got the first time you tried a treasure hunt? For fans willing to “game” the show, it’s the same thrill. “Unlike traditionally passive television shows, which expect viewers to zone out in a couch-potato haze, “Lost,” which returns […]
