Art Is Motion: Lexus 300h Mod Paints Driver’s Picture Based On How They Drive. [Video]

Art Is Motion: Lexus 300h paints a portrait of the drive based on how the drive.

Art collector Walter Vanhaerent’s Lexus 300h paints his portrait each time he takes it for a drive. From Gizmodo:

“The specially modified vehicle is half art project, half engineering experiment. Vanhaerent’s Lexus features a large LCD display that shows his portrait being generated by custom software that paints it in the style of artist Sergio Abliac. The slower Vanhaerent drives, the more detailed the portrait will be, and the faster he drives, the more abstract the brush strokes become.”

Cool project but unfortunately, the “Art Is Motion” mod doesn’t motivate the driver to go slower, on electric power alone; if Mr. Vanhaerent is feeling abstract, he’ll just floor it. One additional tweak, that only outputs a painting if the driver drives slower, and this ‘art’ project becomes a standard feature on all Lexus models. [Gizmodo]

Buying Dupé Bottled Air Is Just Plain Stupid. Buying Bottled Water Is…. [Video]

Dupé - Purveyors of fine bottled air.Brought to you by the purveyors of fine bottled breathing air – Dupé.***

Avoiding bottled water is easy – drink tap water. If you want to drink tap but you forgot your water bottle, drink water out of a sink with your hands. If you don’t have any hands, have somebody turn the water on for you and put your mouth on the spigot. I could go on but I think most people get it. Finding safe, drinkable tap water isn’t difficult.

LEGO Shoes And Shoes For Life – Lower Your Footprint With LYF Shoes.

LYF Shoes - Pinstripe StyleLYF Shoes must know something about how much people love LEGOs because they’re using the same building-block principles to change the way we buy, repair and wear our shoes. Here’s more about LYF Shoes:

This bypasses those monolithic shoe assembly factories which use toxic glues and ship boxes of air halfway around the world. Our technology allows us to pursue many more fashion, fit and ecological advances than the big brands can – while still being competitive with them on price.

We’ve also unlocked unlimited creative expression using digital integration tools, and created the first LYF Cyclable shoe.”

Guy Driving His Dog For A Walk Is A Jubbling Shit Sandwich. [Video]

This video of a guy walking, wait a sec, driving his dog for a walk may be the end of Jubbling. So much wrong here. From the ‘dog-walker-man’:

“The driver of this vehicle was ‘walking’ his dog in Douglas Park in Regina at about 8:30 p.m. (Aug. 18, 2013) With one end of the leash attached to the dog’s collar and the other in the van, the vehicle kept nudging the dog at the shoulder with the tire of his moving vehicle each time he took a left turn. Because it was dark and was driving slow, cars kept passing him …. it was clear the drivers didn’t see this dog until the past minute, because they slowed suddenly and gave the dog a little extra room as they passed this van.

Essentially, this dog was nearly run over several times in 15 minutes I followed him.

At one point, another dog walker who was on the sidewalk and giving his dog a little exercise the old fashioned way, yelled out to the man and heckled him.

The guy thought he was mitigating the danger of all of this by driving with his hazards on. However, when I first saw this guy, I noticed the driver was also on his cell phone.

Before anyone asks, yes, I called the police — two officers paid him a visit.”

For all the BP’s and gender-bending pipelines out of Canada, this guy driving his dog for a walk is the most painful and direct kick to our Jubbling nuts. It’s like a big giant bowl of unnecessary consumption and waste. [Arbroath]
