What’s That? (64)

Puzzle Series: What is this, or what do you want it to be?


  • Ben Fischler PRO 9y

    Ha! LOL. FSM pops up wherever he(she, it?) likes!

    Totally has the cellular automata look. Weird syncronicity: I was just looking in my copy of New Kind Of Science for pics that I recalled in there.

    not a frisbee I'd wanna catch:)
  • Gisela Giardino 9y

    Impressive resemblance of the FSM an the fliud in Benjiman´s video... or maybe is sort of religious pareidolia?

    sue you brought an excellent point here: "catchability". :) What about this fluid? is it touchable or toxic? if touchable, how does it feel? I make a mental comparison to mercury... but may be wrong.
  • Todd Huffman 9y

    benjiman, that is an amazing video! Thank you so much!
  • His Noodly Appendage PRO 9y

    Damn. I must actually be some sort of apostate. I thought it was Madonna's new bra.
  • Troy Gardner 9y

    I want it to be another makers faire. I need some extra magnets on discount for hanging some drapes.
  • Ben Fischler PRO 9y

    Of course, I suppose we don't REALLY need ferrofluids for this sort of crazy stuff.

    Plain old corn starch will start doing pretty amazing shit at the right frequencies.

    Makes me think of that living cornflour video...

    First to try it out and take a picture gets some shiny kudos.
  • Becca PRO 9y

    dunno, looks a bit like latex so I like it :P
  • Ioan Sameli 9y

    Amazing ! That's too cool...
  • Steve Jurvetson PRO 9y

    Yes, latex is good. And now, this image is part of a music video.... What next?
  • Ben 9y

    Oooh, congrats. Cool video too. Minimal; a slide show to techno. Who knew that would work? The instrumental portion itself would be too repetitive, but it works with the spoken word and pictures!

    (Oh, and this was over 4 months ago? That time is FLYING!)
  • Gisela Giardino 9y

    "what next?"

    'puzzle' t-shirts, 'puzzle' mugs, key rings, posters... 'puzzle' the movie, the 'puzzle' essential book...

    and then all the revivals: the complete 'puzzle' collection... 'puzzle greatest hits, a life with 'puzzle', 'puzzle' an unauthorized biography...

    infinte possibilities.

    Hi, I'm an admin for a group called Nano Imaging, and we'd love to have this added to the group!

    This is a perfect image for the nano group. You would be the first in the group...

    What a NIFTY nano-image!
