…It’s Things Thursday: Flying F@#k?

Flying Fuck

Thanks to a clever play on words, anyone can give a Flying F@#k.

That’s because the remote controlled Flying F@#k helicopter comes with an inappropriate body, but flies just like a regular helicopter, allowing you to send your Flying F@#k all over the room and helping you to spread your message far and wide: I now give a Flying F@#K!

…Khoda was painstakingly painted?


Stop motion and animation are tough, time consuming ways to make a video, but they seem like walks in the park compared to what Reza Dolatabadi went through to create Khoda.

That’s because Reza Dolatabadi created Khoda by painting more than 6,000 individual frames of the story and then combining them to form five minutes of psychological thriller that wows as much for the medium as it does for the message:

…It’s Website Wednesday: Obamicon.me?


Since outbreaks of Obamania are sure to continue through the week and into the weekend, I though I’d point out a great way to vent some of that excess Obama energy: The Obamicon Generator.

An Obamicon is an image inspired by Shepard Fairey’s iconic Obama poster, and features red, white and blue cell shading with a simple message underneath.

To make your own Obamicon, just take a picture with your webcam or upload a photo, choose your message, and let the Obamicon generator go to work. Then, you can submit your newly minted Obamicon to the gallery, and vote on others that have been submitted as well. Finally, take your Obamicon and run it through Obamicon.me’s Zazzle store, and you’ll soon have more Obamicon mugs, hats and t-shirts than you’ll know what to do with.


…Clocks can tell you more than the time?

Clock Art

Here’s an incredibly unique art idea: A set of 500 clocks that spells out a message once every 12 hours using focused light and the shadows from the hands of the clocks.

Unfortunately it’s only readable for someone that can read a language other than English, so I can’t tell what it says, but I’ll take their word for it that the concept does in fact work as promised.

…The Image Fulgurator will mess with your mind?

Image Fulgurator

The Image Fulgurator is Julius von Bismarck’s photo hijacker that uses a flash gun and an old SLR camera to sense the flash of another camera and then project a message (either image or text) onto the surface of whatever is being photographed.

Apparently the reason for the Fulgurator is that Julius wants to challenge the confidence that people have in the accuracy of their photos, though I think that it’s more than a little fun to watch the confused faces of tourists who just can’t figure out what’s wrong with their camera:
