Underneath The Naked Eye: Gommi Arcade Shows Us What’s Fly With Digital Animation

Gommi Arcade

It was the year 2145 A.D. when Zak of Gommi Arcade decided to bless the world with a twist in storytelling. Stuff Fly People Like got the chance to sit down with the chief creative officer Zak Hoke. Gommi Arcade is a trans-media entertainment company/multimedia brand specializing in interactive storytelling and cross-platform audience engagement through fashion, animation and video game production based on the story of our main character.

Gommi Arcade

On where the name Gommi Arcade stem from:

Zak: I’ve never subscribed to the notion of “playing the game” to get ahead in life as it relates to school, work and politics. So, early on, I decided not to “play the game” and to live my life beyond the rules and limitations set by those in society afraid to follow their dreams.
Since I have an affinity for Japanese Otaku culture, I took the word Gomi, with one “m”, meaning trash in Japanese and the English “Arcade” as in video gaming, and created a mash-up with GOMMI ARCADE, to mean “trash the game” and live your life through creative freedom.
Gommi Arcade
The Story Line: 
Zak: In the dystopian future of 2145 Gommi Arcadian, a shy teenage prodigy, discovers a mysterious mask that helps him uncover the truth about his world and his role in the imminent battle to free its citizens from the clutches of an elite shadow army led by the relentless ruler Mr Mimic.
Gommi Arcade

On the creative process in designing and building such a character:
Zak: The story was born with me and the desire to tell it was inspired by moments in my life where I was exposed to similar creative threads and trains of thought. Growing up watching Star Wars, Akira, Ghost in the Shell and listening to Public Enemy, The Clash, Massive Attack and now Kayne West have all impacted me in ways that I’m still discovering. But the creative process is all about tapping into your truth and expressing it in a way that’s genuine and authentic.
Gommi Arcade
On what’s next for Gommi Arcade: 
Continuing to rollout seasonal capsule collections, animated short films, video game apps, comic books, music and whatever our fans say they want from us.

ikea-wireless-charging

 

Charging your favorite mobile phones is now easy and FLY!

IKEA is launching a new range of decorative home furnishing products — the Wireless Charging collection — with built-in wireless chargers for compatible mobile phones that help make everyday life at home easier and more convenient. IKEA has incorporated wireless charging functions, using Qi technology, into bedside tables, floor-and table lamps, desks and simple charging pads.

With this new collection, IKEA makes charging easy by turning furniture into charging spots and enabling convenient charging throughout the home based on one’s personal needs. The Wireless Charging collection will be rolled out globally; U.S. stores will begin to see availability beginning in late Spring.

“With smartphones becoming such a natural part of our lives, we wanted the charging part to become a natural part of our homes.  We know our customers rely on their mobile devices constantly and also hate messy cables.  That’s why we’ve created this collection to make mobile charging a lot more accessible, yet a lot less obvious,” said Holly Harraway, Lighting Sales Leader IKEA U.S.  “Introducing smart ways to minimize cable clutter and reduce the number of charging devices is just a small part of our long term commitment to finding new, innovative solutions for a better life at home.

You have to admit….this is pretty FLY! We love it!

Costumers can check if their mobile phone is compatible with the Qi standard (HERE) or purchase a VITAHULT charging cover (for Apple iPhone or Samsung Galaxy only) to enable use with the IKEA wireless charging products.

Items in the wireless charging collection (ranging from $9.99 to $119.00) include:

  • RIGGAD work lamp with wireless charger
  • VARV floor and table lamps with wireless chargers
  • NORDLI bedside table with MORIK wireless charger
  • SELJE bedside tables with MORIK wireless charger
  • NORDMÄRKE wireless triple charger (white and birch)
  • NORDMÄRKE wireless single charger (white and birch)
  • JYSSEN wireless charger which fits into MICKE and STUVA desks.  You can also fit it into the furniture of your choice as long as it’s a wooden surface.
  • KOPPLA USB adaptor 3 port
  • KOPPLA surge protector 5 socket/2 USB port
  • VITAHULT covers for iPhones or Samsung Galaxy
  • ROMMA cable management box (white and grey)
