Short links for October 24th, 2007
Some interesting things I bookmarked on del.icio.us on October 24th, 2007:
- Non-lethal mousetraps by Roger Arquer – These traps might not be very efficient, but they make for great photography.
- Heckling Hare: step-by-step construction lesson – John K explains (in a video tutorial) how to draw this frame from Tex Avery’s “Heckling Hare”. It’s a hilarious scene animated by Rod Scribner.
- Fearing Crime, Japanese Wear the Hiding Place – Though street crime is relatively low in Japan, quirky camouflage designs like this vending-machine dress are being offered to an increasingly anxious public to hide from would-be assailants.
- Gmail IMAP – Gmail now supports IMAP!
- PlusDeck – Cassette-to-MP3 converter – Still have old cassette tapes worth saving? You can easily convert them to digital formats with plusdeckEX and plusdeck2c. (or just don’t be lazy and hook up your old cassette player to your computer…)
- Chris Gilmour – Beautiful cardboard sculptures, including a typewriter, 12 speed bicycles, a grand piano, a coffee machine, and a life size car.
