When I was growing up, I had National Geography maps that I would just stare at while lying on the floor. Trying to find names of strange places, finding cool spots and wondering what they would be like. Mind you, this is all long Pre-Internet and everything was physical. Well, this isn’t the case anymore […]
Here is a graphic overview of the design of the knee as demonstrated by Beau Kittredge. This has to be one of the best learning tools I have seen regarding the knee. To think of how much stress we put onto our ACL, MCL and PCL during any sport that involves cutting and sprinting. Enjoy […]
The future of 3D printing is coming our way. Imagine a 5-axis printer that can rotate your object as it’s being printed. The system works on the extrusion coming out as a liquid but quickly cools as 2 cooling mist nozzles are quickly cooling/hardening the material. The software is a plugin for the Rhino 3D […]
I’ve never really thought about moose shedding antlers- mostly since I’ve never seen the process. I have seen some big ones up around Jacques Lake in Jasper National Park. Moose are the largest member of the deer family and every year the moose looses its antlers. Now, antlers are not horns- which […]
I found an old red filter at a used camera shop in Victoria since I saw an idea so I thought I should try it out. Just take a book, fold it a little so that there is a crease and place the filter in the crease (I used fun-tak aka smurf poo to hold […]

The new Light L16camera is coming from a photography startup and features 16 lenses! Yes, not just one like your camera or mine but 16. It’s not that big either and it is the size of your cell phone but twice as thick.
As we enter this new world of 3D printers and other gadgets, it truly is amazing to see what we can do with them. Take for example this 3D printing pen. I know that I am not an artist of any sort and that these items they ‘wrote’ with the pen are exceptional but I […]

Ultimate, a game that I truly think is amazing. But there are reasons not to hire an ultimate player.
Lungs hurting, heart pounding, legs moving slowly then faster as you try to get away from your defenseman. Disc in the air, brain working to get to the best spot to catch it, instincts take over, you are flying. Disc caught, get up and throw. Repeat til the end of the point. Point over, now […]

Not sure about you, but I have been a fan of these De La Soul for a out 26 years now. An old roommate in Banff, Alberta had a 4 song EP tape (yes, tape) of them with Jennifa and some other songs from “3 Feet and Rising” which is a fabulous album. I can’t […]
This is pretty incredible little story about the design and manufacturing of the Aluminum Beer Can. When we look at some everyday items, we don’t see the complexity that goes into the manufacturing of the object itself. Especially something that we use every day and take for granted. I can’t tell you how many beers […]
In Ultimate, we have what’s called “The Greatest”. Maybe since it doesn’t happen very often or that it is a pretty spectacular play when it does happen, it’s something that when executed properly is rather impressive. So, “The Greatest” occurs when the disc is out of bounds (not within the lines of the field), the […]
Imagination Creates Reality I got this quote years ago from Tom Robbins and it exemplifies how I feel about the imagination. Over the last couple of years, I have been watching my son grow up and seeing how he interacts with the world has given me a whole new love for this quote. For example, […]
This is a great video to make you think about photography and some of pause to ponder them. We are all so used to seeing photos but we really haven’t put much thought into them. We never truly see ourselves like everyone else sees us. The way we move, our backs, our facial expressions when […]
A great article about the smartest athletes. You gotta wonder who they are but the most impressive one isn’t just a person, but the whole sport itself. I am not surprised. After having a chat with a friend of mine last week, he told me one of the reasons why he loved the game. Andy […]

I listen to a lot of podcasts and one of my favorites is Freakanomics which recently had a segment about Ultimate Frisbee. It discusses self-policing and how it governs some aspects of the world and our lives. Imagine that soccer (football) was a self refereed sport? It would take a while for it to get […]

Google Search is cool little thing. There are over 100 billion webpages for them to sift through to find the relevant results that you need or want. I wonder how many mice it takes to run all those wheels in the 19 data centres in the US and the other 17 that are worldwide? For […]
I think Tesla was a pretty incredible man. A little odd but he sure had a mind. Don’t think I truly understand a lot of the work that he did but he did make our lives better. A museum is in the works for a site in New York where he did some work and […]
