…It’s TGI Friday: YouTube Street Fighter?

YouTube Street Fighter

YouTube Street Fighter is the classic game you know and love but played with a modern twist.

The game consists of an intricate series of videos that allow you to control your player using one of four buttons. Press a button at the right time, and you’ll make a move on your opponent and score some damage points. Move too late however, and you’ll be on the receiving end of a blow that will take some of your own health. Once one of the players has had enough, there are even ending sequences to finish him off.

The animation itself is actually done with a combination of action figures and stop motion, though it’s surprisingly smooth for a video game that’s hacked together out of YouTube clips and the clever use of linking buttons.

Give it a shot and see what you think:


…Disaster Dioramas are dangerous papercraft?

Disaster Dioramas Hindenburg

Papercraft, or the art of folding, cutting, shaping and taping paper into physical objects, is often a laborious and tedious process that results in an intricate, yet boring piece of desk adornment.

However, Spitefuls’ Disaster Dioramas are different.

Featuring the Titanic and the Hindenburg (with many more to come, including The Alamo), Disaster Dioramas help you to “spiffy up your cubicle and help alleviate work boredom through a fun activity using common office supplies!”

Simply print out the pieces, cut them out, and fold them into shape. Each comes with its own display stand, so you can easily show off the results to your quizzical coworkers.

Now get folding!

…It’s Website Wednesday: AfriGadget?


AfriGadget is all about the ways in which everyday problems can be solved with a little African ingenuity.

A lack of power, tools, supplies (and money) are the inspiration behind these creations, and the things that people have come up with to solve their problems are amazingly intricate and well thought out.

Imagine what they could create if they actually had a few dollars to spend…
