Doubleplus Chutzpah or when a company in your industry helps itself to your images! Sometimes what we find when we look at where our TinEye graphics appear on the web (we are an image search company after all!) is not really surprising. Like our corporate logo in the profile of an Elance designer we don’t even know! That’s not news as this type of thing happens everyday on the web...
Starting 2014 with love, kindness & Lovebots!
The winter has taken hold of our awesome city and for the 3 people in Toronto (including myself) who love the winter, this winter has delivered! But have you seen the wonderful Lovebots all over the city? Are they warming your hearts yet?
Our TinEye tshirts are almost here!
Love the Hardboiled Inc folks producing our TinEye tshirts! I still remember when they opened up their shop in Kensington Market in Toronto in 2001!
We have been playing with a few designs and are really excited to see them next week (we hope!).
Our TinEye friend Reg Braithwaite nails it with his tweet this morning which brought roars of laughter to our office: But all hilarity aside: it seems that SixDead Entertainment (based in Montreal!) has simply ripped off our (awesome) TinEye robot. We understand. TinEye is an awesome robot, he is cute, steely, has great vision, works hard and is really powerful at searching for images. We...
The story behind the TinEye robot
Many of our TinEye fans have asked us about the history of the TinEye robot, if the robot has a name, how was it created? and if TinEye itself was inspired by Brandon Sanderson’s Mistborn trilogy (it was not). So we thought to start off the new year we would reminisce with Stephen DesRoches about creating the TinEye robot. We invited Stephen to tell you the story from his designer...
Unveiling our TinEye redesign
Hello folks! If you haven’t noticed, things are looking quite different over at TinEye. We have been working on the redesign with the great folks over at silverorange, and we’re sure they’re just as excited about the launch as we are!
TinEye: Not so much of alloy
TinEye got his first poem and he is enjoying the attention. I hope it does not all go to his head!
Well, we are not the only ones in the world who love robots! Have you seen the Mozilla robot? What a beauty! If like me, you missed the Firefox launch party in Toronto (well, you know some of us have work to do!) then you are going to enjoy John Slater’s post about the FF3 new designs and branding. John is the Creative Director at Mozilla and documents some his design and branding...
I will do
“I will do what I’m told without question ’til I’m old” or the shorter version “I will do” is the title of Maura Cluthe’s robot sketch and I have to say we love it! Her robot sketches are awesome. Have a look for yourself.

I am writing a long post about robots since I am thinking about TinEye’s branding and I came across Michael Salter’s styrofoam robot and I remembered seeing it in the San Jose Museum of Art last month and being completely amazed. I would love to build one. I think I am going to build one except it will be a Wild Styrobot (wild animal robot?). This video chronicles Salter and his team...
