Have you ever played Myst on the computer back in the day? For those who did, I am quite sure that you were enthralled by the new term coined in the IT world known as ?multimedia?, and it is nice to see nostalgia being fleshed out in the form of an actual, physical book, thanks to the exertions by a certain Mike Ando. Mike actually created a replica linking book from the graphic adventure video game series known as Myst, and in order to maintain a degree of authenticity, he decided to make a close as possible copy of the same book which was originally scanned as a texture reference. The game allowed such books to transport folks to mystical worlds, and Ando?s creation that is a labor of love six years (!) in the making carries a full desktop computer within, being self-contained without the need for any external wires or hardware.
In order to transport you to faraway fantasy worlds, the Myst Book will carry a 5? LED touchscreen display at 640 × 480 resolution, in addition to a copy of all the Myst games released pre-installed. The ?real? Myst book can be yours for a whopping $15,625, and in order to help loosen your purse strings, perhaps watching a video of the Myst Book in action above will do the trick.By Ubergizmo.

Now that Scott Forstall is out at Apple, speculations about the future of iOS and OS X are hot as hell. With much respect to Jony Ive, we can pretty much say that the future is bright. But as to what the new Human Interface chief is planning, they are still shrouded in mystery. But according to the New York Times, a major design shift is coming. Rumor has it that Steve Jobs was a huge fan of skeuomorphism – a design element that replicates real-world objects digitally. Scott Forstall too was a skeuomorph, and it was evident in every iPhone, iPod and iPad.
Jony Ive, on the other hand, reportedly has a distaste for the visual ornamentation that is skeuomorphism. Ive, also Apple’s Industrial Design chief and widely known as a proponent of minimalist designs, is expected to make his own mark. “You can be sure that the next generation of iOS and OS X will have Jony’s industrial design aesthetic all over them,” one unnamed Apple designer told The New York Times. “Clean edges, flat surfaces will likely replace the textures that are all over the place right now.”By Ubergizmo.

What are some of the tools that you have used to ensure that your friends will know just where you are, and what you are doing or the restaurant that you just visited for some good food? A smartphone and a tablet would be the primary modes of updating one?s social networks while on-the-go, apart from using such apps when seated in front of your notebook or computer, of course. How about a pair of jeans? Wait a minute here, how can something you wear be used to update your social network status? Italian denim brand Replay has done so by introducing what they call the Social Denim, where this pair of jeans will boast of a vinyl pocket that comes integrated with a small Bluetooth device. This Bluetooth device will ?talk? to your smartphone over a dedicated app, allowing you to share your updates with whatever social network(s) you are signed in to.
You can also report your ?happiness level? that shows off eight different moods to choose from, which will of course, range from the positive to the negative. The Replay Social Denim jeans will be available in blue and black fabric, in regular-slim or skinny fit for men and skinny or baby boot cut for women. They won?t come that cheap though, hitting Replay stores and European retailers as well as the Replay online store sometime in December with prices starting from ?150 to a high of ?199. All they need now is a fart detector that tells the world you just let one rip…and where.By Ubergizmo.

Coca-Cola in Great Britain has come up with what they call the ?Work It Out Calculator‘, where it was developed in association with ex-Olympian and professor Dr. Greg Whyte, in order to share with the rest of the world the importance of balancing the kind of energy that enters your body, as well as energy spent. This is an online tool which allows you to pick your your favorite Coca?Cola beverage, and after consuming it, will also share a list of various exercises so that you are able to burn off the calories consumed. Take for example a can of Coca-Cola that has 139 calories – you will need to play 17 minutes of basketball or vacuum your home for 51 minutes in order to burn the entire can. Salsa dancing takes the shortest amount of time at just 14 minutes, and I wonder how many hours of Diablo 3 gaming does it take to do so?
Of course, there would be those who have a different school of thought – avoid drinking all the fizzy drinks like Coca-Cola altogether, and settle for far more nutritious and healthy drinks such as natural fruit juices and of course, water. At least you do not need to run the risk of getting diabetes along the way, but if you cannot give up your daily intake of Coke, the Work It Out Calculator does make for a fun site to visit.By Ubergizmo.
