pixels outside the computer?

Monday, June 07, 2004

Ian Bogost from Water Cooler Games posted something on Pixelblocks. He even has a picture of his self-made real-life 2D Pac Man Ghost. Those Pixelblocks certainly are very cool. These blocks are translucent blocks and "come in a single shape, featuring a peg-and-hole combination for stacking top-to-bottom, and a unique tooth-and-groove combination on the other four side", by being able to connect blocks from all sides you can make 2D and 3D 'pictures' with them (like Ian did). Look at those kawaii figures!:

I don't think my imagination can handle coming up with my own made characters or figures, and I don't think I would have the patience for making pixel art like thingies (like Ian said..too much work!) with 3/8" cubes... but if someone would make one for me... I would be very happy :D
