If you like typing on a touch screen and want this feel on your computer,
this is a keyboard for you.
the Cool Leaf Keayboard (ver. 2) is basically a touch screen with a mirror finish and some level of water resistance, pictures of this keyboard all over the web but I have finally found it and now there’s a version 2 of the Keyboard.
in the Ad video they mention some parts of this are concept and by that I think they mean its just a Keyboard, the video kinda gives false hope of cool DJ or Video game Layout, but since its essentially a touch screen this is technically possible with some software.
I really think this is a just a good looking keayboard, but its really more of a gimmick and not a comfortable day-to-day use kind of Keyboard, what kind of keyboard do you prefer ? would you pay nearly $300 for a touch keyboard on the PC? leave a comment below on what you think.
according to their site this launcher came out 3 years ago in feb 29th, 2012. I started using it around summer that year and have been using it ever since, I have changed devices many times and tried newer different launchers but I’ve always went back to TSF Launcher, It kind of gave me a consistent user experience on many different Android devices, the customization is great and the gimmicks are plenty, and the best part is that the development of this launcher is continuous, they have released a ver.3 recently and I quickly found myself adapting and falling in love all over again with TSF 3D.
although I have been using the HTC since october 2013, and the HTC Sense UI with Blinkfeed are pretty impressive, yet the customization made me go back to the safety of TSF UI and their cool interactive widgets.
the biggest down side to TSF is that its $15+ but I have to say that since I paid this amount a long time ago, It’s well worth it, and the reason I’m writing this post about it now is because they currently have a %40 off, so check it out and make your Android Device really cool looking.
I dont really know what to write here, I’m just happy to be in this wonderful country, on a glorious day with amazing weather, this is a day where all Kuwaiti people show their gratitude towards this country.
its not perfect but its better than most, and I can’t explain how fortunate I feel to be a Kuwaiti.
this is a cool video, an art and history project that shows what the most famous Disney princesses would look like if they were historically more accurate, base on what people looked like and wore back in the time and place the stor is supposed to be, do you agree on this list?
Warning: Pocahontas is a little sketchy with her semi topless look, might not be suitable for everyone.
Recently I’ve been playing two side scrolling puzzle platforming games.
this is a somewhat popular genre in the recent years with the rise of the indie games, and so I will share with you my experience playing both of these games and I’ll compare and contrast them.
outland is a MetroidVania platformer crossed with a bullet hell shooter (Like Ikaruga), the gameplay is simple and depends on the duality of the character (two colors vs two-opposite colored enemies) with a bunch of platforming and puzzles thrown in.
the boss fights are pretty cool but just like you expect from a platforming adevnture game, its not very hard or unpredictable, its the kind of game that needs skill and some patience to go through.
the design of Outland is beautiful, the color schemes, the backgrounds and even the soundtrack are great for such a seemingly modest game.
I played through this game and I really think its a satisfying game, albeit the final boss fight was nerve-racking.
much like Outland, Deadlight is a game where you mainly have to solve puzzles and fight enemies to advance in the game, but Deadlight is a grey dirty post-apocalyptic game, the backgrounds and character designs are really detailed and beautiful, the atmosphere of the game is very immersive and feels likea horror game, I should also mention the soundtrack is amazing I downloaded it separately.
the gameplay in Deadlight feels more realistic and human, while the hero in Outland was more of a colorful mythical creature than jumps around and can fall from extreme heights without taking damage, this guy on the other hand is a bearded badass who is trying to survive through a zombie infested world, he has stamina and limitation to his physical ability, which augments the survival theme of the game.
The puzzle quality is a bit better in Deadlight but Outland fighting mechanics more fun, in Deadlight you really have to conserve your ammo and stamina and avoid large groups of zombies, while in Outland you kill enemies and absordb their energy to kill more enemies.
The story of Deadlight is somewhat a typical post-apocalypse zombie situation game and Outland is a “legendary tale” kind of storyline with mythical characters and it uses narration instead of a talking character.
I have spent about an hour only in Deadlight so I’m not sure on how much I should give it, but as far as first impressions go, its pretty damn good.
Many people in Kuwait like to go to Dubai, the beautiful country full of activities and rich with a culture similar to Kuwait, I don’t think there’s much I can say because we all know how good Dubai is,
so filmmaker and artist Rob Whitworth made an amazing video on Dubai using various techniques like stop motion and timelapse and he put together a video that represented his first impression of Dubai
I love how this is made and I’m jealous of Dubai because we need someone in Kuwait to do something this creative and show the beauty of Kuwait.
Korean artist U-Ram Choe uses resin, magnets, electric motors, CPU boards, and LEDs to create these amazing kinetic lamp/sculptures that are based on the morphology of insects. When switched on, the creatures light up and start gently moving. Beautiful.
I started playing this game just this weekend, and its one of the hidden gems I had purchased a long time ago from HumbleBundle, it resembles a Castlevania/Metroid style 2D platform adventure game with basic RPG elements, character and weapon development, Items and crafting, a simple quest system and a generic (but good) story.
the art of the game may not be the best you will see but the animation of the characters and the gameplay and motion in this game is superb, the combos are amazing and you almost never get tired of them, which makes the game an amazing indie game.
(note: this gameplay video is from within the first 10 minutes of the game)
this game is 2 years old and its available on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 , you can find it for PC here and on steam here
in 2004 Valve released Half Life 2, and in over 10 years the fans are still waiting for the 3rd installment of the game (although I should note that the direct sequels for it were Half Life: Episode 1& Episode 2 the latter was released in 2007).
the following is a fan made video of what happened to Gordon Freeman all these years the fans were waiting for Half Life 3.
I want to go on a little rant here, because its a sensitive subject for fans and Half Life 3 became more of a myth and a joke on the Internet on how it will never be announced not to mention released, I think the pressure and expectations on this game are so high that Valve will probably never work on it, and its really sad how Half Life will probably be remembered as the game that never got finished, because the story is still going and I personally would love to play through part 2 and its episodes if part 3 ever comes out.
what do you think? are you a Half Life fan? do you care about Half life 3? or have you given up on it ?
a group of Russian teenagers have been going on a campaign to stop people from driving on sidewalks as a shortcut, so they stop in their way and ask them to go back. its interesting how these offenders react even though they are breaking the law.
I spent a good amount of time browsing and watching these young activists being cussed at, spit on, bumped by cars, and generally deal with road rage by drivers who can only be described as idiots, some people fight them or threaten then with weapons, guns and knives and they stood their ground.
in many occasions they got the police involved too and it led to tickets for traffic violations and sometimes arrests for the offenders, the point of this channel was to stop people from endangering pedestrians and breaking the law by driving on the sidewalk, which is a common habit in Russia.
I’m posting about this issue is that we have a very similar (although maybe not as blatant) issue with people here; like using safety lanes that are meant for emergency vehicles or cutting off people, speeding and running red lights, we need to change some of these behaviors in Kuwait and respect the law and care for the safety of others.

A couple years ago a guy came up with an Idea to make a consumable collection of chemicals, its a drink he called “soylent” that covers all the needs of a human body of all the chemicals required daily, then he went and got his idea crowd-funded into a company and he sells this product that replaces food entirely.
I have seen this when it got viral, and I was always interested in the idea but then I found out that this idea became a business, would you try Soylent ?
I’m happy to introduce to you a wonderful mobile game called “LineZeta”.
The game is a mixture of Bejeweled and Super Robot Wars, it is a puzzle game with robots, you have to line up cores (or jewels) to make lines that will make your robots attack the enemies, the game starts off really easy and for someone who is first starting, things like upgrading, editing your squad of robots or picking out a ship may not make much sense in terms of gameplay, but after going through some levels you start to pick up why u need certain abilities or stats to advance.
Fusion is a nice way to upgrade your robot
rare robots and special event robots make a huge difference as well
eventually you will realized how addictive the game is, in collecting robots, leveling them up and playing through the seemingly endless challenges, and you start adding online players as friends and have them contribute to the battles you are going through, the game is simple in terms of gameplay and complex enough with the ideas to keep you interested, and its very addictive because its fast.
overall I have spent dozen hours on this game in the first few days and now I am getting to a point where I have to know what I should be doing exactly in order to beat the harder enemies, I don’t see an end to the challenges and stages and modes in this game, but I do love the journey through them.
the game design is great, and the robots have great variety and they operate on a scale of colors (these colors are part of the game mechanic), I keep getting screenshots whenever I get into the loading screen because I think the Robot design is good, I have a Gallery of them click the image below for full size pics.
you can get either the free version of LineZeta or the paid one, called LineZeta Frontiers:
