Artechouse = Art + Tech + House

This place was really cool in Washington, D.C. 



Artechouse = Art + Tech + House. 



Great immersive technology, art, music, dance, and light show. 



Highly recommend it!



This exhibit “Lucid Motion” was by Japanese artist Daito Manabe X Rhizomatiks Research.



They also had a nice augmented reality display. 



Had fun with the clan. 



Hope you enjoy!

This Is What You Smell

Great sign at the nut stand at Sugarloaf Festival.

“This Is What You Smell!”


Hot cinnamon pecans or almonds. 


Wow, did that smell nice.


I got a tiny bag of the pecans, and when I opened it, the smell and taste that hot cinnamon really took over. 


Were there other smells present as well?


Probably, but I chose to focus on the cinnamon nuts. 


The other smells will have to wait for their special sign and appropriate attention to deal with it. 😉

Hyundai’s Great All-Terrain Concept Car

Very impressed with the Hyundai concept “Walking Car.”


It can drive, walk, and climb. 


I heard that this thing can even climb over walls and jump over gaps!


(Ah, I’m not going to say anything about border security with this–let’s just hope the bad guys don’t get this). 


This is the closest that we’ve come to Hollywood’s Transformers.


This is much more than a vehicle for search and rescue–this is ALL-TERRAIN!


Great job Hyundai–I’d love to test drive this beauty!  😉

Anyone Have A Question About This Car?

Yeah, all I can say…

Anyone have a question about this car?


I am pretty sure this car is owned by Matthew Lesko, “The Question Mark Guy.”


Lesko was in a number of commercials and infomercials about asking him how to get free information and grant money from the government. 


He dresses and drives in question marks, and I’ve seen him a number of times around town. Frankly, it’s sort of hard to miss this guy!


His self promotion sort of makes you wonder, if you had to choose just one symbol to wear everywhere to represent you to the world–it could be a punctuation mark or anything else–what would that look like?  😉
