In-Room iPods at The Upper House

OK, this is cool. The Upper House, Hong Kong's newest luxury boutique hotel, has done away (finally!) with the crappy paper guides you find in pretty much every hotel room, from a Hampton Inn to the Peninsula.

Check out the new pics Trend Hunter has posted here: In-Room iPods at The Upper House.

On top of this, The Upper House has moved to become a completely paperless hotel. Check in? Done on a tablet PC in your room. Check out? Just leave. Makes things easier, faster and it's environmentally responsible (and don't worry, your bill is e-mailed to you that day).

GIFs that make you laugh.

Courtesy of Going Like Sixty, this is, well, pretty good.

Juice Box Cameras

I stumbled across a fun little product that I posted to TREND HUNTER a couple of days ago - Juice Box Cameras. They're actual cameras hidden inside rather gross sounding juice boxes.

While only manual versions (35 mm) are currently available, no doubt a digital camera version is not too far down the road. They are the work of a Japanese design firm. Who else would come up with European Supermarket Mania as a flavor?

Ethos Water Sucks

I think Ethos water is a ridiculous scam. I say this, by the way, while being a relatively loyal Starbucks customer (probably 5x a week) - but I just can't help but get really peeved.

Take a look at this article from TrendHunter.com: http://www.trendhunter.com/trends/charity-profiteering-the-ethos-water-scam. Jeremy Gutsche does a great job exposing this fraud. 5 cents a bottle as a donation when the bottle costs $4? Pass. Get bent, Ethos. I'm buying a $1 bottle (or drinking from the fountain) and donating to a real charity.

End rant.

DNA Radio

I wrote on Trend Hunter about how you can "listen" to the Human Genome thanks to DNA rainbow.

Here out the post here: http://www.trendhunter.com/trends/dna-radio-human-genome-internet. 23.5 years will be required to air the whole thing...so lots of opportunity to check it out.

Memoir Productions

This is a pretty cool new venture out of Toronto. Not exactly super-techy in itself, but I've seen their equipment and it's pretty intense. A cool service.

Check out Memoir Productions on Trend Hunter.
