Adidas Facebook and Twitter Superstars

Don’t you just love it when people start to think that same? This concept has been created by someone on the Fashionology wave length.

Web designer/illustrator/digital artist, Gerry McKay, has drawn up a concept of a pairof Facebook or Twitter Adidas Superstars.

For those of you less in touch with trainer speak, Superstars are considered one of the most classic trainer designs ever made.

Gerry has taken this classic shoe and applied heo popular theme of social media to the design. He did this following the Adidas Superstars’ 35th anniversary in 2006 and said of the Twitter trainer:

“Twitter as a brand is increasingly on the rise and I thought it would be interesting to see what it would look like if Adidas also released a limited edition Twitter Superstar.”

What do you make of these concepts? Would you wear an Adidas Twitter or Facebook  Superstar trainer?

Online shopping legend ASOS has teamed with the oracle of stylish laptops, HP, to create a new “Fashion Insider” campaign.

Visitors to ASOS, or those of you obsessed enough to receive regular email updates from the side (that’s me right there) may well have seen the HP ads asking you to “take the style challenge”.

The aim of this challenge is for you to play around with some of ASOS’s latest stock and create your ideal style, and also to promote HP’s line of fashionable notebooks.

I had a go and came up with a few outfits I loved. Plus, it even uploads them to Facebook too, avec title and your name!

The Pileus Umbrella: stay out of the wet and connected to the net

I have just discovered a rather unusual gadget, one that has entertained me so much I simply had to blog about it (although I do recognise its ridiculousness). Introducing the Pileus Internet Umbrella!

This umbrella doesn’t just keep you dry, it has a screen on the underside, a built in camera, motion sensor, GPS and digital compass screen. Never again will you get lost in the rain with this baby!

It is presently just a prototype but has so pretty cool features; the photo function connects you to Flickr so you can be staring up at a sunny sky if you so wish, and also can be used to upload or view videos. This is all done through a wireless Internet connection that is built into the umbrella.

That is not all, the Pileus can also display a 3D on the inside screen so you can literally guide yourself through the city in the rain without getting your iPhone, Smart Phone, paper map wet! See it action here.

They say that soon the Internet will be available everywhere, well with accessories like this being created, I’m starting to see how!
