//na// Having survived both the Ides & St. Pat’s with toga & liver intact, I feel like celebrating with some assorted design inspiration I’ve uncovered recently:
- Multi-touch might be passé before it even gets here; what we really need are giant, human-powered cursors. [Via]
- Similarly, why do digital photomosaics when there’s Rubik’s cube pixel art? [Via] And speaking of cubes, you can put your own photos onto them in Photoshop using the Panos Cube plug-in (10 bucks). [Via]
- In the late 90’s the flat, vectorish Flash aesthetic popped up everywhere (print, TV, etc.). Now in a retro touch, here’s a Flash-style preloader watch. [Via] See also the Russian-designed Sand-Time Watch.
- Speaking of preloaders, the one at Coca-Cola’s M5 site adds a fresh touch, running through the years from BC to AD (a small thing, sure, but hey, it’s a preloader).
- Flickr is hosting an excellent collection of laser-cut skateboard decks. This one in particular grabs me. [Via] (See also previous: more on laser etching + skating skulls).
- Amka will put your art on a skate deck using vinyl, and they offer large-scale vinyl printing as well. [Via]
- "Octopus" is… well, it’s one thing to do with your flatbed scanner. On a rather sweeter (and beautifully illustrated) note, see Octonauts [Via] In the real world, scientists have photographed a giant glowing squid — not to mention a six-fingered guy named "El Pulpo."

More amazing finds by the Nack.
Although when you start your post with liver & toga…that should be our clue that you’ve found some unusual links.

Awesome links for the skate deck artwork. Why not top it off with custom grip tape? CB Burnside (my neighbor) set up this company:
[Cool. Lasers are a long way from my days of decorating grip tape via paint pens. 😉 –J.]
The human cursors is just TOO much, I have not stopped laughing since yesterday. I wish I knew what they are saying. How do you find this stuff? Too cool.
