Science Plan



Cyborg Squirrel (No, seriously…)

Flickr user and ex-classmate, OlivePixel, has created a monster.  Well, more accurately a cyborg…from a dead squirrel.  The photographic evidence of the creation is excellent and the cyborg itself pretty damn terrifying.  The glazed over dead eyes of the little rodent are distressingly fitting and the mechanical appendages look far too functional.

 The flickr set is titled ‘Cyborgs‘, which hints that we may be in for more, so hold on to your nuts…

The Human Clock

Stumbled across this excellent site today whilst browsing the world of web.  The human clock tells the time through user submitted photographs of numbers.  The photos are taken all over the world from Antarctica to Australia and range from the imaginative, to the humourous, to the completely unoriginal, however, there is some undeniable allure to seeing what pops up next.  There are also seperate Analog and Digital clocks to look at.  Will definitely be submitting a couple of Hong Kong time photos in the next couple of weeks.

Anyway, go check the time…

Pixenate: Awesome Online Photo Editor

Just stumbled across this today at work whilst trying to tweak a couple of photos without the aid of my photoshop enables laptop. Pixenate lets you do perform photoshop-esque photo editing from your browser. Not only can you perform a variety of basic image manipulations such as cropping, resizing, level editing and the like, Pixenate allows you to chose between saving the modified photo back to your hard drive or uploading it directly to your Flickr when you are done. Other features include red eye removal, straightening, whitening and there are also some ‘fun effects’ thrown in for good measure. Nice!

Go check it out, you never know when you will need it.
