…MrWong got carried away with the Soup’Partments?

Soup'Partments

MrWong’s Soup’Partments is an abandoned attempt to build the world’s tallest virtual building.

Abandoned doesn’t mean it was unsuccessful however, as I can’t imagine anyone ‘building’ anything higher than the Soup’Partments, with its 406 residents and 2,000 meters of height.

To help with the construction, MrWong opened the project to anyone with an image editor and some spare time. Users downloaded a template for either a one-story ‘apartment’ or a two-story ‘loft’ and went to work customizing it with anything that their heart desired. MrWong then checked I, and as long as it met with his approval, the story was added.

Since the project was closed down almost five years ago, not much has gone on in the Soup’Partments lately, but if you want a good look at some rather unique Internet history, there’s no better place to begin.

…You can make your own Steve Jobs?

Steve Jobs Paper ModelDidn’t get enough Steve Jobs in your life yesterday?

Then make your own!

Toy-A-Day is a year-long project where the creator will be constructing and posting a new paper toy from a basic template each day for one year, and to help celebrate iDay, he created a little Steve Jobs that comes with his own iPhone and iPod.

Simple print it out, fold it up, and display it for all your friends to see.

A lack of a neck makes it difficult to show off the trademark turtleneck in this mini mock-up, but considering the fact that this is an accurate representation of his Steviness, you can trust that it’s in there somewhere.
