JAPAN | CHOCOLATE BEER?

Chocolate_beer

Yuk? or Yum?

This is one strange (or not so strange) collaboration. Sapporo Breweries and Royce Chocolate collaborate on Chocolate Brewery  – to create Chocolate Beer. Is this “innovation” gone mad? Or some true market need?

Whatever it is, can’t wait to get my hands on one of these.

HONG KONG | DIESEL STORE

Was just walking down the street in HK and could not help but notice the new Diesel store.  …for a minute I thought that a new movie theater had opened up smack in the middle of Central (an unlikely location for a movie theater)

The store front is a cross-promotion with the movie Shinjuku Incident Fever, displaying Diesel products in a make shift street scene from Tokyo.

Inside the store there is a ‘Shinjuku Incident’ vending machine which dispensed small cardboard boxes with movie passes inside to see Shinjuku Incident. (the catch: you have to purchase HK$2k worth of stuff to have access)

As always, Diesel manages to make a strong impact!

SINGAPORE | ROBOT

Build a robot kit, and use it as a CD holder.

Looks like some nice low tech toys are still around!
