Link roundup

1. Matt Kindt's next comic "Super Natural" will feature "the paranormal, and stars the ghosts of Houdini, Amelia Earhart and even a character from Super Spy, among others."

2. Augmented reality candy:

At SFC Open Research Forum 2010, Keio University's Yasuaki Kakehi Laboratory exhibited TagCandy, where the sensations produced by candy are varied using augmented reality. By sucking an ordinary candy inserted into the device, users can experience fizzy soda or crisp apple sensations, or even things such as the sensation of fireworks, that can't be achieved in reality.

3. Nice retrospective of Sucklord's toys. Via.
