A Cosmic Pac-Man at Saturn's Moon Mimas

March 31, 2010

In a recent flyby it conducted around the Saturnine moon Mimas, the NASA Cassini spacecraft managed to obtain the most detailed, high-resolution images of the space rock ever produced. The recent photos of the surface, combined with complex temperature maps, provide the most comprehensive view to date of the peculiar natural satellite. Researchers investigating the photos were surprised to find an old “friend” on the moon, the famous video game character Pac-Man. It appears to be eating one of its famous dot, in the temperature map that Cassini produced.

Crochered Pac-Man and Ghosts Pattern :-)

Crochered Pac-Man and Ghosts Pattern

Quoting creator Carey Huffman:

Around January this year a friend of mine hinted that he would like me to make him a Pac-Man toy. I ended up designing him not only pacman but also a full set of ghost to go with it. After showing off on Craftster and Flickr many people begged for the pattern (pdf). So here is is at long last the Crocheted Pac-Man brought to you free thanks to the Creative Commons Attribution- NonCommercial- NoDerivs 2.5 License.

We love the project, have a look:

tweenbots.com - Robot/People art by Kacie Kinzer:

In New York, we are very occupied with getting from one place to another. I wondered: could a human-like object traverse sidewalks and streets along with us, and in so doing, create a narrative about our relationship to space and our willingness to interact with what we find in it? More importantly, how could our actions be seen within a larger context of human connection that emerges from the complexity of the city itself? To answer these questions, I built robots.

Tweenbots are human-dependent robots that navigate the city with the help of pedestrians they encounter. Rolling at a constant speed, in a straight line, Tweenbots have a destination displayed on a flag, and rely on people they meet to read this flag and to aim them in the right direction to reach their goal.

 


Woman and Pac-Man... :-)

June 16, 2009

Created by Lady Harvatine, the stuffed arcade machine captures the spirit of some of my fondest arcade memories. Inspired by thes excellent papercraft arcade creations (read news bellow), she set off to create her own unique spin on the arcade classic. The centerpiece of the squishy system has to be the piece of retro Pac-Man fabric that a friend of hers scrounged up for the screen.

Paper Arcade - excellent papercraft arcade creations

At  wayoftherodent.com you find a nice collection of papercraft arcade cabins. Print out the – if you will – paper-engineered blueprints (should scale to fit any paper size* see page for more help on printing). Cut, fold, make, be proud of.

Happy Birthday Pac Man Cookies!

May 24, 2009

Here’s a great tutorial by Jocelyn over at Snack Or Die for some homemade Pac Man sugar cookies.

As for the ghosty shape, Jocelyn used a tulip shaped cookie cutter. Good to know since a tulip would probably be easier to find than digging around through the ol’ Halloween bin.
