March of Dimes: Signatures

Amazing things happen when you give your signature. And one of those things is helping the March of Dimes. TM Advertising created an illustration of a baby's face using signatures during the Signature Chefs Auction fundraising. For the March of Dimes, signatures mean that research is done. Vaccines are discovered. And healthier babies are born. Just as the chefs have given their own signature to this event – in the form of their signature dishes – everyone can show their support by signing their signature. You can find out more and sign at www.signaturechefsdallas.com

Samsung Galaxy S III: The Next Big Thing is Already Here

About a year ago, Samsung mocked Apple's fanboys waiting in an endless line to get the new iPhone. Now, they do it again. And, once again, who can blame them after the second in a row disappointing iPhone. The video is hilarious.

21 Swings: Exercise in musical cooperation

Together we achieve better things than separately. This installation in front of Université du Québec à Montréal’s Science Faculty is based on that notion. It is a giant collective instrument made of 21 musical swings; each swing in motion triggers different notes, all the swings together compose a piece, but some sounds only emerge from cooperation. Installations like this can lighten up a city.
