Heard of liquid mountaineering? With the help of a couple of pieces of ordinary technology, these guys might have skimmed their way into a brand new extreme sport. Using a combination of speed, angle, Zen-like determination and the properties of surface tension, they accomplish what we thought was impossible.
Next: they raise the dead.
Update: Extreme sportsters might be able to raise the dead before they can do this — it’s a hoax, I’ve been duped. It’s a viral video for those shoes in there, the brand name of which I seem to have forgotten.

Here’s the Ustream link, mostly just ambient party setup Friday. It’s hot and sunny here, with a chance of frolicking models in the pool. Tomorrow at noon [...]
Long before actor Tommy Lee Jones humiliated himself to promote Japan’s leading canned coffee, H.R. Giger’s creations performed similar, yet infinitely more dignified work for the likes of the electronics brand Pioneer. Promoting the company’s ZONE sound system in 1984-5, Japanese ad execs took inspiration from Giger’s design work on the film “Alien” (1979) and concept art for “Dune” (1984).

When top designer Jason Wu isn’t busy dressing Natalie Portman, Drew Barrymore or Michelle Obama, he’s busy designing cameras. Working with General Imaging and sold under the General Electric (GE) brand, Wu’s products will be called “Created by Jason Wu.” Someone needs to extreme makeover that product name.
