…Space Invaders are taking over San Diego?

The Space Invaders Walk

If you’re in the San Diego area, be sure to check out The Space Invaders Walk, a virtual tour through the city that’s led by Invader, a famous street artist who makes an appearance in Bansky’s new film, Exit Through The Gift Shop.

In addition to creating your own space invader, you can also keep an eye out for various pieces by Invader that have been stuck up around the city, all in anticipation of the group show that’s opening at Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego called “Viva la Revolucion: A Dialogue with the Urban Landscape”.

…It’s Website Wednesday: Aerial Virtual Tour Of New York?

Aerial Virtual Tour Of New York

PixelCase’s Aerial Virtual Tour of New York is an amazing look at the Big Apple from above thanks to the combined photography of Oleg Gaponyuk and Andrei Zubets.

Once inside the panorama you can look around and zoom in and out, and when viewed in fullscreen, it reminds me a lot of the intro scene from The Dark Knight that was shot in IMAX, including the slight knot you’ll get in your stomach if you’re at all afraid of heights.

…Wood gadgets are good for nothing?

If you liked the San Francisco toothpick tour, then check out this hand cranked machine made entirely out of wood and glue (no nails or screws).

The video takes you step by step through each one of the functions, and it’s impressive to think that you can build something like this with a lot of time and determination.

…Scott Weaver knows dedication?

Over the course of 35 years (Scott estimates more than 3,000 hours of labor), he has assembled more than 100,000 toothpicks into a 9’ tall sculpture of San Francisco that includes such favorites as the Golden Gate Bridge, Muir Woods, Humphrey the humpback whale, the Ferry Building, and a full tour that he can send ping pong balls through on their way down the city.

Called “Rolling Through the Bay”, it won Best of Show at the Sonoma County Fair, and for good reason.

Check out the video for a little glimpse of what it takes to create such a mad machine:

…You can fold your own finger puppet candidate?

Obama Finger Puppet

Sure they’re touring the country, but for up close and personal interviews about issues that matter, nothing beats folding your own presidential candidate and turning them into a finger puppet.

Debates just got a whole lot more interactive.
