SkullTroniXYou may enjoy this video of a creepy animatronic talking skull, ideal for a high-tech haunted house at Halloween!
My name is Jerry Jewell. I designed the SkullTroniX hardware and my cohort in crime is Mike Fox who provides the voices and animation.
A little history: I've been running a haunt for many years and over 10 years ago it was converted from a home haunt to a non-profit teen leadership program called Scary U. While working on Scary U we developed some effective but mechanically crude talking skulls for our own use.
Well, the skull was a great success and after 18 months of constant development and tens of thousands of development dollars I progressed from the first version to what is now known as Rev 3 ...
Skulltronix's new Ghost Bust can bring a innocent looking marble bust to life in ghostly fashion. The effect looks real, scary real!
The secret is a 3D projection system, one that maps a video performance of an actor in make-up to a bust prop designed with a special surface for displaying the projection in 3D. The final trick is the performance itself, as both facial expressions and voice capture nuances animated puppets can't.

Masks By MorganEach and every mask made by Morgan is created from hand-dyed leather using age-old techniques.
Each mask is sculpted by hand, all beadwork, feathers, plus other embellishments are applied by hand, and each mask is signed, numbered, and dated. Because each mask is created completely by hand, no two masks are exactly alike (even though they may be of the same design), making every mask a one of a kind and an excellent addition to any mask collection.

Scion SpeakToyota has taken the next step in generating more hype for their hip and boxy cars at Scion. You can now create your own logo crest at Scion Speak.
Even if you dont own a Scion, it's fun to build! I made this one:
StrawberryFrog has created this campaign. They hired graffiti artist Tristan Eaton (the Brooklyn based street artist behind the famous Kidrobot toy lines) to design the graphics for the site. Eaton’s designs are edgy, interesting, and modern. They include everything from mythical creatures (Phoenix, Dirty Rat, Hackoon, etc.) to tiny icons of spray paint bottles, cameras, crayons, sports equipment, tanks, and even a stethoscope, meant to represent the user’s interests, jobs, and skills.
Of course - this campaign is motivated by other reasons than just for fun. Here is an interesting article by the NY Times: Do-It-Yourself Logos for Proud Scion Owners.

Rinspeed sQuba - The world's first underwater carRinspeed is a Swiss automobile manufacturer and tuning designer. Rinspeed specialise in restoring classic cars, and tuning and modifying modern cars (like Porsches and Subarus). They also design exotic concept vehicles for the Geneva Motor Show each year. This is the newest project: The sQuba.

Thirty years after the movie thriller ‘The Spy Who Loved Me’ hit the silver screen “sQuba” is the first car that can actually ‘fly’ under water.
“Dive it again, James!” If the situation gets too hot for the secret agent he’ll go underground - or under water. So demonstrated impressively by Roger Moore in ‘The Spy Who Loved Me” in 1977 when he dove below the waves in a sleek vehicle that moments before seemed to be an ordinary car. The only problem: The scene never really took place; it was an animation.
With the “sQuba,” the world’s first real submersible car, the movie fake now becomes reality for visitors of the Geneva Motor Show (March 6th - 16th, 2008). Rinspeed boss Frank M. Rinderknecht (52) is known for his extraordinary automotive creations. The acknowledged James Bond enthusiast and Swiss automobile visionary kept revisiting this scene in his mind over and over: “For three decades I have tried to imagine how it might be possible to build a car that can fly under water. Now we have made this dream come true.”
Rinspeed (English and German) - Check also the other projects like eXasis, zaZen, Senso, Bedouin, Tatooo, X-Trem and much much more, all with text, wide range of pictures and videos.
And here is the Rinspeed sQuba video.
