First Color Changing LED Faucet


This could quite possibly be the world’s first color changing faucet — built-in LEDs change colors based on the water temperature. There is also “precise control” for baths, sinks, and showers. No word yet on pricing and availability.

The Venice project


What is the Venice Project? Skype co-founders Janus Friis and Niklas Zennström built it with some of that $2.6 billion from selling Skype to eBay. Friis explains on his blog:
It’s simple, really — we are trying to bring together the best of TV with the best of the Internet. We think TV is one of the most powerful, engaging mass medias of all time. People love TV, but they also hate TV. They love the (sometimes…) amazing storytelling, the richness, the quality itself. But they hate the linearness, the lack of choice, the lack of basic things like being able to search. And wholly missing is everything that we are now accustomed to from the Internet: tagging, recommendations, choice, and so on… TV is 507 channels and nothing on and we want to help change that!

The God Delusion



The shocking title does no justice to the incredible arguments that Richard Dawkins makes against religion and its assault on reason and science. Whether or not you agree with the content, this documentary must give you pause. Narrated by Dawkins, who is an incredible thinker and is very passionate about his arguments. The gem of these documentaries is an interview with Ted Haggard, who gets all uppity when he is challenged by Dawkins as someone who is "telling people what to think". Not to be missed.

BOVET



In a market where virtually every watch brand can be compared with another, BOVET watches stand in a category of their own - champions of a style of watchmaking that gives individual craftsmen and women the opportunity to express rare skills. It is an approach that dates back more than 180 years, when the first Bovet watches were made to display exotic European arts to the Chinese atistocracy. Then as now, Bovet watches gave free of reign to watchmakers, enamellers, goldsmiths and jewellers to capture time
in the most beautiful and original way possibly. Bovet's total production is fewer than 2000 watches a year. Many are in limited series. Some are unique pieces. Such watches, made to order, take months to create.
