Triumvirs founder Brandon Cheng was given the opportunity to design a Nike SB sneaker with FLY from China and this is the product of it. They’ve taken inspirations from their staples in their heritage: noodles, traffic, highways and Tianamen Square. These are really nice sneakers even though I’ve had just about enough of these Chinese heritage inspired shoes even though its not that apparent in this one. These should be at SB dealers soon.. or now. So keep your ears to the ground! More pics after the jump

C’MON ALREADY. Acti-Blizzard has gone mad with these Guitar Hero games. Bringing it to the DS wasn’t a great idea, but it wasn’t that bad either. Then there that toy in the cereal box. Okay, fine, I’ll give you that one too because it’s not technically your doing, though you gave the license to use the name. But now this? C’mon already, it’s not even Guitar Hero, you playing DDR with your character and handing out flyers to people. This is not right. Somebody please stop them.

*EDIT: I just watched it again and noticed something, OVER 25 HOURS OF GAMEPLAY? WHAT?

I don’t understand how this is even possible. Australians are crazy. Then again, I guess this just proves that Armageddon was right about technology. ALL MADE IN CHINA/TAIWAN and that’s the only way to fix it.

Last night I had the pleasure of going to Sidecar, one of the best restaurants I’ve been to in a long time.  It’s a cozy little restaurant in Little Italy, downtown Toronto.  Even though it was packed to capacity, someone is always there to greet you when you come in and take your coat.  I ordered the Sea Bass, which came with a side of mini potatoes and green beans and the whole thing drizzled with a delightful vinaigrette.  Everything was cooked and seasoned perfectly.

I guess it was bound to happen… He’s not known as the Louis Vuitton Don for no reason. So he’s working with Louis Vuitton to design 6 shoes, and here’s a sneak peak at one of them. looks pretty clean. Not bad, but the heel of the shoe could use some work. Can’t wait to see what the others will look like. No word yet on coulours… either.

So a complete look at the CLOT x NIKE 1World Air Force 1’s is out. As you may know, CLOT is based in Hong Kong and as such, they felt it was necessary to represent that in their shoe. This shoe is immaculate in its design and intent to show the world the asian culture. The packaging is truly amazing. Likened to Chinese New Year candy boxes, the package includes, instead of candy, several coloured laces in separating segments, and then the shoes. This is what I call product design. More pictures after the jump.

I really hope that this game does well. Because it looks awesome. I’ve been waiting a long time to see a proper shape shifter game and this game looks like it has the potential to deliver. All I hope is that the button layout will be alright and not too complicated. Anyways hit the jump to see the trailers and videos that were released at CES 2009. Enjoy!

p_gallery32Sony has finally released details on its much hyped P-series netbook entry at the recent CES convention in Las Vegas, and it is a sexy little thing. Available in 4 colours (Black, White, Red, Green), it will run Vista out of the box, it has an ultra slim profile and sports a 8″ wide screen. All at a low low (remember this is Sony) price of $900 USD what more could you ask for?! Full specs and pictures after the jump.
