Samsung breaks dodgeball world record to celebrate Reality handset launch

Dodgeball – never was a word uttered by a middle school coach that thrilled some and terrified others at the same time. This is the game coaches use to weed out the weak as they sat around laughing while the kids that throw really hard aim for the testicles of the fat slow kid.

I thought once adulthood came around dodgeball was something you didn’t play again, but Samsung has proven that wrong by holding a massive game and setting a Guinness World Record to celebrate the Verizon launch of the Reality mobile phone. The record breaking game had 712 players and 600 balls.

This video is pretty amazing and a real eye-opener at how pervasive green-screening has become in almost every scene in television these days. If it takes place outdoors, it is faked in one way or another.

In some cases you wonder why they even had to change the scenery. I guess even the most beautiful reality isn’t real enough these days. Gives me a whole new appreciation for actors these days. These guys and gals are way more talented then they get credit for.

12 Star Trek gadgets that became reality
Like many Sci-Fi novels shows and movies, Star Trek showed us futuristic gadgets that at the time were complete Science fiction, but soon came to be a reality. Here’s a list of such technology, in no particular order.

These might be new to you if you have always been far to enamored with the women of Star Trek to notice the tech and gadgets.

Before we get so easily sidetracked, back to the theme. Star Trek gadgets and tech. Some you can own, some are in the works and some are just strange.
