Look out geeky designers, art directors and gadget freaks in general, the scribble pen is almost here! What if you could tap an item, anything at all to pick its color, just like you do in photoshop, and then start to draw on your tablet or mobile with that exact color.

How many slaves do you have? Slaveryfootprint will tell you.

Slaveryfootprint is a site that allows you to calculate your slavery footprint, by selecting what you own, how you live, what you eat and how many members there are in your family. Children will add additional slaves due to the many plastic bits & toys, for example, but so will makeup. Along the way you learn stuff like the glitter in makeup is mica and it's mined by people who aren't making a living wage off it. I had no idea mica was used in makeup and toothpaste.

Gatorade apologises over LeBron #cramp tweets

LeBron James was forced to leave Game 1 of the NBA Finals because of cramps and Gatorade's twitter account was amusing themselves by insunuating this was all due to the fact that he's not drinking it. Lebron signed with Powerade and it seems Gatorade is a bit cranky about that.

STYLEPIT introduces a scrolling lookbook

Online fashion retailer Stylepit decided to create a lookbook to showcase all the cool brands they have on offer, so they created this nifty panning site.

Danish agency Uncle Grey took a phantom flex camera, put it on a track, and scrolled through a subway platform. There you could click on a highlighted person and see the article of clothing in color. It is a nice way to navigate, though my wifi is acting spotty today, so there was a lot of lag unfortunately. Just as well. I found more than a few things I could have bought.

Adidas Instagram printed shoes? Sure, can it get any worse?

It seem that in an attempt to stay internet hip for the hipster crowd, Adidas may have stumbled onto how to create the ugliest shoes on earth - and we thought that's what they hired Jeremy Scott for. Well they've now raised the tacky-bar, and you can print sunsets, sushi and selfies onto Adidas shoes.... I demand to see Kanye wearing Adidas with a selfie of himself on them, or I will be disappoint, son.
