Mike Angelo on Mr. Picassohead

Today on On Your Day, we (they?) will play a segment we recorded some weeks (months?) ago on the Mr. Picassohead art toy that I blogged in October. Since then I have received the occasional submission from our fabulous blog readers and thought I'd bring the story back to the top by featuring this piece by my pal, Mike Angelo.

Warning: Mr. Picassohead is hazardous to your deadlines. He's too much fun to ignore.

Start Drawing -- Mr. Picassohead

Make Art not Spreadsheets

Apophysys FlameYou can use your computer to create beautiful free form fractal flames. These fractal flames and their associated editors and rederers have been around since 1992, and they just keep getting better.

You can now run the software standalone, creating these images for your own enjoyment, or you can participate in a larger community of people creating these images via a screen saver which generates the images and allows you to vote and thus influence the longevity of images being created on the computers of others.

Create your own: [Apophysis]

Flying Foam Circus Girls!

You heard right! This desktop cannon will fire foam darts bearing the likenesses of circus dolls up to 10 feet. That range should allow you to attack co-workers two cubes away! The real trick of this baby is that it is Universal Serial Bus connected to your computer, thus allowing you to aim the cannon via your PC keyboard. It's just one more reason security wonks everywhere are trying to lock us out of corporately owned USB ports.
