ARG for Dreamworks' REAL STEEL: WRB (World Robot Boxing) Needs You

What is rumored to be an ARG done by 42 Entertainment, WRB (World Robot Boxing), the viral marketing production attached to the film starring Hugh Jackman, seems to be initiating...oh...um...say....nowwwwwwww.

Over the weekend, die-cut paper gizmos with codes were found by PAX East attendees (read more here) leading to the site: WRB.com. A collection of these codes will unlock the website. The catch is we need more people to enter them in.

If you want to get in on the ground running, drop everything you are doing and enter these codes onto the site: 3eb33bc24, 3234ca14d, 1e4414ca2,ecb4dbc33, 2d13a4e43, 3b1e3b2ab, de3e13bcb.


Edited to add: I assume we got enough people as website has been unlocked to lots of bonus material, but you still need to unlock 5 rounds to view all the material and to be on the mailing list for some good 'ole ARG swag. Look for the codes and enter them in.

Hint: typing saves time

how to hack video screens on times square


the way it works is pretty simple: plug in my transmitter into the iphone 4 and play back any video clip. you can play it through the ipod feature or through the camera roll. the transmitter instantly sends the video signal to the video repeater and the video repeater overrides any video screen that it's being held next to. it doesn't matter what shape or size the hacked screen is because the hack video will simply keep its correct dimensions and the rest of the hacked space will stay black.

i chose times square for my demo because it has lots of video screens to try it on. it is also one of the most monitored and secured areas in new york city and that made it that much more fun :). you can see in my video that the repeater is pretty powerful but the signal is not very stable yet. i'm working on that. i will post a new video later this week explaining how i made this prototype.

AOL: Strike 3 at Engadget

A revolt is under way at technology blog Engadget, a key component of AOLs new strategy to revive the company. First it was Paul Miller. Then Joshua Topolsky. Next up we have Nilay Patel.

It’s tomorrow.

by Nilay Patel

I’ve been privileged to have a front row seat as journalism transformed from a one-way street to a multichannel discussion...

Read the full post:
http://nilaypatel.co/post/3818150718/its-tomorrow


Yes, the now infamous "AOL Way" appears to be working; but not in the way Tim Armstrong envisioned. Nilay makes the third member of the Engadget podcast team to leave in a matter of weeks. Engadget has essentially lost its heart.

Adding to the intrigue is this stunning tweet from venture startup guru Jason Calacanis to Joshua Topolsky shortly after Josh broke the news that he was leaving.



It would appear that the AOL way may just have led to AOL's worst nightmare. It is game on. Bring it!!!!

::::: UPDATE :::::

joshuatopolsky:

Despite what the press really wants to say, I'm not leaving Engadget because of the AOL Way. Clear?
