Okay, most of you who know me personally know I’m ridiculously happy at my new job. I’m currently redesigning blendtec.com, and little else could fuzzify my geeky little heart like this does.
But many of you, particularly my girl friends, have never heard of “Will It Blend” or Blendtec. And when I say “Oh! It’s so cool! They have these super tough blenders that blend stuff, like magnets and silly putty and iPhones!” you look at me like I’m from another planet.
So here are a few links to fill you in. 🙂
Blendtec on Modern Marvels: Super awesome behind-the scenes stuff, and a great overview, too.
Total Blender on Time Warp: Blending stuff is even cooler when it’s filmed at 10,000 frames per second and then played back in high definition slow mo! On this one they blend strawberries, gum balls, a video camera, and butane lighters. Parental discretion advised if your kid is a pyro. Otherwise, be sure to watch it in HD!
Bad guys, good guy, and a blender: A notoriously tough guy gets in the blender with the bad guys. Who will win? Blendtec had to remove this after the tough guy (whose name I dare not mention since I work for BT now, but you can find one of his many fan sites here) sent a cease and desist. But several youtube users had re-posted the original video, including this one. Too funny.
And of course we have Will It Blend? — a huge video collection of Tom Dickson blending stuff. And last but not least, blendtec.com — which is going to look awesome before the summer’s through.
And the best part of all of it? They Gave Me A Blender! Anyone up for smoothies? 😀
The exploding lighters were awesome!
Yeah really! I can imagine my brothers and I definitely WOULD have tried that at home had we the chance, and it’s a good thing we didn’t :-p
I am a bit of a geek myself 😛 and I WANT a BlendTec!!! We make smoothies EVERY day and our 10 year old cheapie blender just broke. The blades no longer spin. Alas right now we had to order the $5 replacement blade instead of getting a fancy schmancy blender >sigh< Someday, right?
I’ve been a fan of blendtec for quite a while and I’m thrilled to see that you have landed that gig. Please be sure to post some before & after pictures of the site redesign.
I love Blentec, I use it for protein smoothies after training as I always find it hard to eat straight after the gym
