Did you know Canada.. I wanted to look at another Canadian invention today – the IMAX!! Canadians Graeme Ferguson, Roman Kroitor, Robert Kerr, and William C. Shaw developed the IMAX system in 1968. IMAX is a motion picture film format and a set of proprietary cinema projection standards, IMAX increases the resolution of the image by using a much larger film frame. IMAX theatre construction also differs significantly from conventional theatres. The increased resolution allows the audience to be much closer to the screen. You’ve probably been to a few different style of IMAX screens. ‘Avatar: An IMAX 3D Experience’ is the all-time highest grossing IMAX release; the worldwide IMAX box office total for the film climbed to more than $220 million since the movie’s launch in December 2009. Very exciting and a great Canadian invention Read more →
Did you know Canada.. we received the coolest product for my boys room – a 3D Deco Light of a soccer ball! It comes with this really cool sticker of cracks that goes around the ball so it looks like the ball was smashed into the wall. My boys think that is just CRAZY!
Check it out:
Here’s a picture of our ball in my boys room:
And the best part?? This was created by a Canadian father!! Tom Wegrzyn, Canadian Father, Artist and Entrepreneur, took to the drawing board and conceptualized the first 3D Deco Light after not being able to find an adequate nightlight for his own son. Tom has also been an illustrator for Marvel Comics in New York! He worked on over 50 titles, that included; Hulk, X-Men, X-Caliber and many more – how cool is that!
One of my favourite parts of the light is that there are no cords and doesn’t require a plug – the light just runs on batteries. This is perfect for babies rooms as we know and gets rid of the unsightly cord for big boy rooms as well. The theme is perfect, my boys just finished their soccer season a few weeks ago and loves to show it off to everyone that comes over. They like pretending it was them that “smashed” it into the wall as well.
The lights are available at select Walmarts across Canada and online at www.3DLightFX.com. We highly recommend for ANY little ones room (there’s pink too!!) – would also make a fun addition to a basement or family room.
Disclosure: We were sent a light for review – my opinions are my own.
