My interests in robotics, art and (not wanting to sound like a Star Wars fan but…) the dark side means 3 thumbs up for this excellent find by GavRov:
To help bring a little joy to your Monday moaning I thought I’d post this inspiring use of photoshop, for both good and evil… both are good.
Firstly I’d like to spread some light on this dark image:
This image has haunted the internet for over a year and that’s nothing compared to the poor woodland Redneck that pulled it from his deer cam. But the truth behind this mysterious underling has recently surfaced on reddit (either that or it’s an even cleverer hoax on the original clever hoax).
Now for some more enlightening news.
After a family of Star Wars fans take a trip to Sequoia National Park, graphic designer Dad Anthony Herrera decides to make it a day of Ewok hunting amongst the Endor style redwood forest. These are the events that followed in his own words:
“A year ago we took a trip to Sequoia National Park. I wanted to excite my daughter while being in such amazing surroundings. Being the Star Wars geek that I am (so is she), I told her that this is where the Ewoks live. She spent a good chuck of our time hiking keeping a lookout for any Ewoks. Coming home I can’t say that she wasn’t disappointed that we didn’t find any. I had to explain that they are extremely shy and hardly ever let anyone see them. After we got home, and after I had a little time alone with the photos, I told her I thought I saw something strange in a few pictures. We viewed them on the TV to get a larger image. You can imagine how surprised and excited she was when we discovered that we didn’t see any Ewoks, but they saw us, and had certainly taken an interest in her and her little brother. Maybe I’m a little wrong for lying to her and falsifying the pictures, but I don’t care. She’ll never forget the time she spent in the big woods with Ewoks.”

Looking at those happy family photos does make me a little envious, I wish I had an Ewok.
Anyhoo, I hope this has brightened your Monday. See you again soon!!!
Wicked Lasers have just released their latest (and greatest) laser pointer (that’s what it is… sure).
But be warned, this is not for children. the laser is said to cause IMMEDIATE blindness and even set skin aflame.
Introducing the Spyder III Arctic Pro Laser
Still looking for a video demonstrating the insta-flame qualities of such a device.
But shiiiiiiiiiiiiit, drop ’em while their hot!
This is awesome!
Tropicana bring Inuvik out of the dark, by illuminating a 36 foot sun.
It is very freaking nice idea, and an even better execution, that annoys me for some reason.
Survivors of 30 Days of Night get sun and OJ
BBDO Toronto made the sun shine on Inuvik, Northwest Territories, raising a 36 foot wide helium balloon over the northern town as it emerged from weeks of darkness
The marketers also provided a free carton of Tropicana to every household in the community. The effort is part of the brand’s new Brighter Mornings for Brighter Days campaign.
