Five for Friday | 五日(星期五)

Here are five things that have made my day over the past week.

An IBM video from 2000 did a pretty good use case and flaws of Google Glass. Good work (I presume by Ogilvy & Mather, but I maybe wrong). Looking on the bright side of things for Google, this probably protects them from IP court cases, given the ad could be cited as prior art

Five years ago I would have wanted to watch this because Oakley was some kind of engineering wonderland, now I watch it curious to know who Kevin Spacey’s voice over would clash with the conservative designs currently coming out of Oakley post-Luxxotica takeover. Funnily enough the voiceover would have worked almost as well with his appearance in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.

My colleague Phee went for a Gorkana briefing with the Wall Street Journal, as a Storify embed.

Apple made a really nice 30-second spot to promote the MacBook Air range. The ad plays on how consumers personalise their computers as an analog for love

There is something WestWorld-esque about the faceless robots in this film about K-league baseball team Hanwha Eagles and their devoted supporters. The film also makes an interesting point about how fandom and participation have changed with online.
