Weird news: A lightning guitar and 3D porn galore

Never let it be said that technology is boring...

North Korea joins Twitter; South Korea blocks them
It was revealed earlier this week that the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea had joined Twitter under the user name @uriminzok, a shortened translation of the Korean for ‘our people’. It’s a brave venture for the notoriously reclusive nation and the tweets in the name of ‘the great leader’ shall be interesting to read. That is unless you live in South Korea, where the recent resurgence of bad blood between the two has led to the account being blocked.

3D porn films on the horizon
If you can’t say anything nice about Stephen Shiu, you can at least admit that he’s brave. The Chinese erotic filmmaker announced this week that he will be producing the world’s first 3D porn movie to be shown in cinemas. Set to be called 3-D Sex and Zen: Extreme Ecstasy, he hopes to beat Italian director Tinto Brass to the somewhat bizarre milestone. One can only hope he doesn’t turn his eye to the small screen and go for the 3DS…

PALRO robots get apps and get scary
It was only a few months ago that Fujisoft announced the PALRO robot as part of the Japanese education system. Since then, the mechanical humanoid has been given some apps to do a whole host of new things. As well as learning how to read tweets, the bot has also learned how to track people using its inbuilt cameras. After last week’s stalking wheelchair, you’d be forgiven for thinking Japan is making the prototype T-1000.

Luxury shark-like vehicle on sale for £60,000
It may not have teeth, but it’s still probably not a good idea to get in the water with the Seabreacher X. The boat/submarine hybrid has the ability to jump up to 12 feet in the style of a shark or dolphin. On top of that, it can travel up to 50 miles per hour whilst housing GPS, LCD screens and an iPod stereo dock. All this while resembling a shark. We cannot stress that enough.

Polaroid hybridise 3D specs and sunglasses
Polaroid recently revealed that they were working with 3D aficionados RealD to produce a range of sunglasses that would double as 3D frames in movies or with passive 3D TVs. Priced at roughly £20, they sound like a decent idea until you consider that this problem never really made itself apparent. Is it a pointless invention? We shall wait and see.

Lightning guitars arrive - all manner of awesomeness breaks loose
It seems that the guitar wasn’t already cool enough for some people. ArcAttack, a group of people who make fun times with physics, has developed a MIDI guitar that is lightning proof. Using the power of Tesla coils, they’ve produced a performance for America’s Got Talent that boggles the mind with how insanely cool it looks. Whether they’re mad or not, you can guarantee that the likes of Muse will be looking pretty disappointed with their stunts after something this epic.
