Intellipen - Writes Digitally as promised.

Image
A new writing instrument!

Hooraaay! Yes, this is it! A gadget that will lessen your time to transfer your notes and encode it manually!
How would you react when you see this digital pen?

I am very intrigue on this gadget that is the main reason why I signed in and attended the launch at Cafe 1771, at El Pueblo (a newly opened cafe in Ortigas! you'll going to love the cafe set up! will make a separate post on it!-smiles)

A gadget called "Intellipen" is such a one of a kind invention.

You don't need a tablet to support the base, a plain paper will do (the speakers said, as long as it's a flat surface then 100% sure that everything you wrote will be recorded!) = AMAZING.

As they discussed how it worked, demonstrations were also made to prove that this kind of pen is what we wanted.

At the end of the launch, they gave away prizes including the newest Intellipen which 'luckily' I WON...Lucky me! yeah.

SM Cinema's search for the best independent film makers in the country, “Big Shot”, was launched last May 5, and is set to revolutionize the Philippine film industry. The launch was simultaneous with the special screening of Bakal Boys, an indie film about children metal divers, supported by Apogee Productions, San Beda College, and the Aquino Foundation.

During his speech, Mr. Lopa emphasized the role of the cinemas as innovative venues for social awareness.

adidas Originals Street Party Celebrates Individuality

Image
7 May 2010, Manila—In 2010, adidas Originals welcomes you to the neighborhood to come out and play on the street where originality lives. Its Street Party campaign is a call to action, an invitation to reclaim the street in a celebration of the raw spirit of creativity and Originality! As a shout out to this, adidas Originals threw a massive Street Party at Venice Piazza Mall Open Park in Mckinley Hill last May 7.


The adidas Originals Street Party in Manila celebrated the roots of authenticity and Originality at its core—the streets, the very place where Originality comes to life as artists, athletes, musicians, and creative innovators are inspired to create. It was a night of playing on the streets in the truest sense: Marching with Star Wars Troopers, dancing to beatboxers, doodling with painters, participating in foosball competitions, and cheering on skate crew performances in a massive street-level party.

This group won several awards including a GRAMMY's in 1995 for the Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group. Stayed on the Billboard's Hot 100 chart at #1 spot for 11 weeks and 7 weeks at #2 spot in the UK.

I Swear was also one of the most popular R&B song at that time. Even wedding singers include this song on their playlist.
