M-Pad: The Next Gen Tablet

The M-Pad was designed by German developer Volker Hübner and was built to meet the needs for professional designers and developers. The M-pad has a number of features that makes it distinct in its class of tablets. The device features an intuitive multitouch display, with a pressure sensitive stylus. The unit carries multiple “fixed” buttons and boasts a 15.6-inch OLED display. The M-Pad has a surprising nine fixed buttons at one end of the front panel. The purpose of this design is to allow users to control the touchscreen with the right hand while using the left hand for “keyboard input.” What I mean by keyboard input is of course, standard key functions; Alt, Ctrl, Escape, Space, Shift, etc.

Jeff Koons Must Die, The Video Game

Multimedia artist Hunter Jonakin has created an art-based first-person shooter called “Jeff Koons Must Die.” Known for his over-priced, kitschy sculptures (ex. giant metal balloon dogs that sold for 20 million dollars each), Koons often comes across as a jerk (ex. suing businesses for using “his” balloon dog motif).

The game is set in a museum filled with Koons’ art, and the weapon of choice is a rocket launcher. The point is to destroy the art, and if the play fails to do this then the game ends.
