35 Awesome Oslo Innovations

From Digital Pup Detectives to Ghostly Fashiontography

— February 25, 2010 — Art & Design
I hate the cold, but I'd make the trip to Norway in the middle of winter just to see these awesome Oslo innovations firsthand.

I can't express how awesome Oslo is. All I can do is tease you with nuggets from the awesome Oslo innovations file. Do you like futuristic houseboats? I know trippy test patterns tickle your fancy. Click through this virtual tour of Oslo to learn more you knuckleheads.

Implications - My favorite of the bunch has got to be the topless blondes in Danish road safety TV ads as it definitely gets people's attention to start doing what's right on the road. Now if only they'll adapt the same concept in North America.
