3D Camera

Fujifilm has announced the selling of a new camera, the FinePix Real 3D W1, capable of taking 3D pictures and video footage that can be viewed without 3D glasses.

This camera comes with two separate 10-megapixel special lenses. It will combine different fields of view into one image or movie, turning it into a full 3D experience.

Users can view the images on the camera's rear display screen or a larger separate monitor. Fujifilm said it would also offer a special 3D photo printing service

This camera will cost 60,000 yen, which is approx. Cdn $687.

This is fun... and an excellent gadget to show off....
However, it's a bit too expensive!
I'll be waiting for this camera's review... I hope other people will post their 3D photos on internet... ;)

What does 123456789 mean?

The moment arrives Wednesday July 8, 2009 morning at exactly 12:34:56 a.m.

This would place the moment in the seventh month and eighth day in the ninth year of the century.
If you put it all together, you'll have 12:34:56/7/8/9.
(This is following European habit. The North American habit puts days before month: "12:34:56/8/7/9", so it will not work.)

Were you awake at 123456789?

Well... I was...
I didn't stay awake because of this. I saw the news article after the fact.
Anyway, I didn't feel anything special at the moment, but it's good to know that I was awake at 123456789. ;)

Roller Babies

Evian Roller Babies commercial is sooooooo cute!
I normally don't like watching commercials, especially in the middle of watching TV eposides. But for this one, I don't mind watching it over and over again...

Bare Essentials of Safety

Air New Zealand has came up with a cheeky way to encourage passengers to watch its in-flight safety video: The cabin crew's uniforms are nothing but body paint.

The video is called "Bare Essentials of Safety".

Yeah Show 2009 世界變

I've finished watching 林以諾牧師's Yeah Show 2009 DVD.
This year's message is: World keeps changing... We'll need God's power and grace to change to become better

Overall, I think the show is very good, but not as good as previous Yeah Shows. I think Yeah Show 2009 is more like a talk show (棟篤笑) than preaching show. Pastor Lam talks about problems in Hong Kong. He is funny, but those things that he talks about doesn't directly related to God. I think he should talk more about God.

Things that I remember about the show:

If you see a guy and a girl finish eating in a restaurant, and...
  • the guy takes the bill, pays without looking, and gives a big tip --> It means the guy is trying to pursue the girl.
  • the guy takes the bill and looks before paying --> It means the love relationship between them has started.
  • the guy takes the bill and says that it's expensive --> It means their relationship is very steady.
  • the guy takes the bill and then give it to the girl for paying --> It means the girl is his wife.

Pastor Lam talks about some writings on a gravestone in England.
(From web, the writings is from an unknown monk in 1100 A.D.)

When I was a young man, I wanted to change the world. I found it was difficult to change the world, so I tried to change my nation. When I found I couldn’t change the nation, I began to focus on my town. I couldn’t change the town and as an older man, I tried to change my family.

Now, as an old man, I realize the only thing I can change is myself, and suddenly I realize that if long ago I had changed myself, I could have made an impact on my family. My family and I could have made an impact on our town. Their impact could have changed the nation and I could indeed have changed the world.

This is very meaningful. If you want to change the world, you must first change yourself.

I like the Yeah Show 2009 theme song. It is a very beautiful song.
