    WOW! Power Balance Wristbands!







    They have an office in Roppongi It-chome. I might egg them next time I ride past.

    I love the part where he says that he made the rest of the team wear them. Must have been a few eye-rolls when he annouced that.

    You see, they program their technology into the hologram which affects your energy field and increases their wallets, opps I mean your balance and strength and flexibility.

    I'm surprised they didn't say it uses nano technology or quantum effects.

    Dudes, you guys didn't know? But holograms don't work at wrists, you have to stick it to your forehead for max effect ...



    ... of ... well it definitely isn't gonna enhance your intelligence.

    P.S. Thanks wiki for storing data on this wonderful show. That's where I got the pict.

    P.P.S. Sorry I couldn't resist. ... Im gonna shut up now.

    I like this one. The final comment is very poignant.

    The thing about OSO bike is that I think the guy's got a great bike he's trying to sell, he just doesn't know how to market it to the right demographic. He's got that video riding around some beach in north Florida with smooth jazz playing in the background...if he had some young kids bombing hills in SF with Motorhead blasting I think he'd do better. I'm thinking about making some promo videos for BLICKSBAGS with my friends, riding around downtown and bombing hills. Riding a bike isn't very exciting unless you're going fast, and on video it's even harder to translate.
