…It’s TGI Friday: Tag: The Power of Paint?

Tag: The Power of Paint

Tag: The Power of Paint is an innovative first-person puzzle platformer that requires you to paint the world around you with special paints as you work your way towards the goal.

Each color of paint gives you a different ability, with green launching you off the surface, red giving you a speed boost, and blue allowing you to stick to the surface, and you can combine them for even more powers.

Recently, Tag was awarded the Best Student Game and Student Showcase awards at the Independent Games Festival, and best of all, it’s free, so you have no excuse for not checking it out.

…It’s Movie Monday: Mona Greasa?

Mona Greasa

Phil Hansen (the same guy that made Bruce Lee by dipping his arms in paint and then hitting the canvas like a martial artist) has created a fantastic piece of adver-art for Arby’s new Roastburger by painting the Mona Lisa using just the grease from 14 regular fast food burgers.

He calls it the ‘Mona Greasa’, and it’ll definitely make you question the things that go into a regular fast food burger:

…Vespa makes the GTS 300 scooter for men?

Vespa GTS 300

Apparently Vespa has finally figured out that with a little bit of black paint, some subtle accents, and their most powerful engine to date, they can probably sell the thing to guys just as well as they can sell it to girls.

The Vespa GTS 300 Super features a 22hp, 278cc, four-stroke, single cylinder, liquid-cooled, electronic injected engine that propels the man-mobile to a top speed of around 80 mph (Though I hope to god no one tries to top speed one of these things!) while getting a rather thrifty 70 mpg.

Additional features include 12-inch alloy rims, double-disc brakes, red springs, a new grill, and plenty of cargo room to hold your man pur… man bag.

…Delta is giving their planes new colors?

Delta 747-400

When Delta Air Lines bought Northwest Airlines for $2.6 billion, it acquired 436 planes, including Airbus A330s, DC-9s, and 16 Boeing 747-400s, making it one of the only domestic airlines to fly the jumbo jet.

The only problem: All of them were painted in NWA colors. (Or livery as they call it in the airline industry.)

To fix that problem, Delta will spend more than two years painting more than 40,000 gallons of paint on their new birds, but it’s hard to picture what a 12 day paint job looks like on a plane the size of a football field, so Delta has put together a time-lapse video of the whole process that cuts it down to just three minutes:

What interesting is that at time-lapse speed, the painters on cherry pickers look like the arms of a robot, and the whole process becomes a well choreographed dance that makes it look easy.

…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Mansory Renovatio?

Mansory Renovatio

Mansory doesn’t do subtle supercars.

Their latest project, called the Renovatio, is based on a Mercedes Benz SLR McLaren, and features a modified supercharger, new wheels, tons of carbon fiber additions, a tricked out interior, and plenty of gold paint.

The end result is a 700 horsepower beast that is guaranteed to turn heads.
