That’s right, ladies and gentlemen – Forrest Gump will be pressing the big red button when the Large Hadron Collider comes back on in June, potentially dooming us all into getting sucked into a vast black hole. If I do end up ending my life in that way, I’ll be a little happier knowing that it was all Tom Hanks’ fault.
In a scene right out of Blackpool’s Christmas Lights, a Hollywood actor will be taking precedence over the world’s biggest and brightest minds to switch back on the massive, costly, science experiment that was switched off shortly after it was turned on, following a massive plasma leak.
Seriously, though – why Tom Hanks? It’s not like they need the publicity that a Hollywood star will bring to the proceedings. In fact, his presence only detracts from the event, and makes whoever booked him look very foolish indeed. I don’t have anything against Hanks, in fact I enjoy his work, but seriously – in big gold, shining letters – WHY?
Despite the fact that most people have HDTVs, very few actually view HD content on them, with 99% of TV programs still broadcast in standard definition. What’s the solution? Well, according to Toshiba, it’s “buy another TV!”. Buy the ZV, to be precise. It’s an upscaling television.
It uses a “powerful cell processor algorithm” to turn standard definition TV into something a little closer to full HD, mainly by finding edges and sharpening them. It also tries to improve depth and texture, and even though the result won’t be as good as full-HD signal, it’s better than nothing.
This is the Nikon Coolpix S60, which Zara is testing out in the video above. It’s got a fantastic, huge, 3.5″ touchscreen. Is it wonderful, or is it annoying to use? There’s only one way to find out – watch the video. Would you want to use a touchscreen on a camera? Are you as big a fan of the word “smudgefest” as I am? Let us know in the comments.
That’s Mr Tan. Say hello to Mr Tan – but don’t get too close to him because he’s INSANE.
Mr Tan has, for some odd reason, decided to build a much bigger replica of his mobile phone. You can just about see the phone there to the left of Mr Tan. It’s the orange thing. Got it? Good.
The monster mobile works properly, takes photos…
