Thanks for sharing that. :Thmbsup:


I wonder how long it's going to be before somebody decides to do a permanent installation of this technology?

Many monumental buildings have been enhanced by lighting. But imagine a building (or cluster of buildings) whose entire surface was specifically designed to host periodic changes via 3D projection. It could appear as the Library of Alexandria one day, and Star Fleet Command the next. (How about plonking the Eye of Sauron on top of the Eiffel Tower some night?) The mind boggles...

Not sure if this showed up purely via coincidence, but this showed up on my Twitter feed.

I never click on those tinyurls, so I didn't check.

Actually, I also didn't notice tinjaw's link (it was on the right of the page and had no amusing image :D)

[edit] Oh, yeah, and tinyurls are evil and should be banned from the internets (except, maybe, from twitter) [/edit]

[edit2] I almost forgot: GREAT THREAD! Love the first clips! [/edit]

Or just do what I do. Use a GreaseMonkey script to turn those tiny URLs back into their long form.

That doesn't solve their inherent evilness and internet-breaking potential, though.
