Currently only a concept, but after Facebook’s $1 Billion dollar acquisition of Instagram, and designer Antonio De Rosa's brilliant mock up design and bid for funding, this might have the steam to become the 21st century’s Polaroid. If brought into production the camera would retail for $350, with contributors being promised a discount on their purchase of the final product.
Would you like to own a standalone handheld of the auto-tune of photography? You can support the project on the money-raising platform Indiegogo in order to create a real-life version of the device.

It's The Untouchables for the 21st century, and it's awesome.
Los Angeles, 1949. Ruthless, Brooklyn-born mob king Mickey Cohen (Sean Penn) runs the show in this town, reaping the ill-gotten gains from the drugs, the guns, the prostitutes and--if he has his way--every wire bet placed west of Chicago. And he does it all with the protection of not only his own paid goons, but also the police and the politicians who are under his control. It's enough to intimidate even the bravest, street-hardened cop...except, perhaps, for the small, secret crew of LAPD outsiders led by Sgt. John O'Mara (Josh Brolin) and Jerry Wooters (Ryan Gosling), who come together to try to tear Cohen's world apart. "Gangster Squad" is a colorful retelling of events surrounding the LAPD's efforts to take back their nascent city from one of the most dangerous mafia bosses of all time.

Android, iPhone... the BlackBerry has taken its fair share of heat from its competitors over the last while. This innovative re-haul of their device platform looks like it just might be what it’s going to take to win back some RIM dissidents. The fact that Barack Obama still uses a BlackBerry is just not enough to do it.
Osheaga is a unique and eclectic music and arts festival staged in the breath-taking environs of Montreal’s Parc Jean-Drapeau on Île Sainte-Hélène, an island of tranquility set in the middle of the bustle of one of North America’s most exciting cities. The festival was inaugurated in 2006 with the intention of offering a world-class European-style festival to Canadians and to showcase Montreal’s acclaimed local talent alongside some of the industry’s biggest names. The artist line-up was designed to present a mix of today’s most avant-garde emerging artists juxtaposed against those internationally known artists who appeal to the most discerning music lover.
This year the festival includes acts like Feist, Snoop Dogg, A$AP Rocky, The Weeknd, The Black Keys, Aloe Blacc, Santigold, City & Colour, and another dozen bands worth mentioning, but If you’re not sold already, what’s the point?
The festival founders also sought to provide fans with an unparalleled experience by offering them the best music, the best food and concessions, and an eco-conscious approach.
