Now here’s a cool idea… A kite that looks so much like a computer cursor you’ll think worlds have just collided!

Cursor Kite (or Kite Cursor)

No, this isn’t a Photoshop trick, it’s a kite (clearly pointing out the “Talk To God” phone booth, must be for traveling Catholics). Designed by Tim Elverston for WindFire Designs it doesn’t sound like they’re going to be selling these but rather are more interested in performing with them.

Carefully designed by Tim Elverston, this high-end addition to the WindFire collection marks the beginning of the WindFire OS Series. Stay tuned and don’t worry, we’ve got all the logical extensions of this series in the works!

Clarus the DogcowHmm, OS series is interesting… How about a kite that looks like the Windows flag? Nah, it would probably just crash.

I’m just waiting for a Clarus the Dogcow kite. Moof!

USB Missile LauncherEvery once in a while a device comes along that is a must-have. Oracle Alchemist points out this great one for the office.

The USB Missile Launcher can be aimed and shot from a software interface. There’s even a third party application for Mac OS X.



Here’s a video of five of these devices being controlled at once. This is the coolest office weapon I’ve seen in a long time.

It seems that these are only available in the UK, but they can also be found on ebay and at iwantoneofthose.com.

At around $50 US the price isn’t bad but all the videos I’ve been able to find make it look like the rockets don’t all shoot when you pull the trigger. Of course this would also be a great hardware project if someone were so inclined.

Thanks to Donald Burleson for pointing me at Oracle Alchemist.

Cube FarmAt the request of a reader I have written up the lyrics (as best I can) to the cubicle song parody of James Blunt’s song “You’re Beautiful”.

Listen to the song (complements of MorningSidekick.com).

“My Cubicle”
Lyrics by: Morning Sidekick
Performed by: Jym Britton
Parody on “You’re Beautiful” by James Blunt

My job is stupid my day’s a bore,
Inside this office from eight to four
Nothin’ ever happens my life is pretty bland,
Pretending that I’m working, pray I don’t get canned.

My Cubicle, My cubicle
It’s One of Sixty two
It’s my small space in a crowded place
Just a six-by-six foot booth
And I hate it that’s the truth

Well, I give a sigh as the boss walks by,
no one ever talks to me or looks me in the eye.
And I really should work but instead I just sit here and surf the Internet.

In My Cubicle, My cubicle
It doesn’t have a view.
It’s my small space in a crowded place
I sit in solitude.
And sometimes I sit here nude.

Foreplay For DummiesTwo great new “Make Your Own” pages from Burleson Consulting’s Daily Oracle News Page:

Make Your Own “For Dummies” Book Cover

Make Your Own South Park Character

So here are your challenges for the day:

First, make a “For Dummies” book that isn’t safe to hang in your cube.

Second, render your boss as a South Park character.

If that’s not enough “Make Your Own” for you, check out the Make Your Own Warning Label site.

Cube FarmFor those who slave away in a cube farm, this song’s for you.

My Cubicle
Lyrics by: Morning Sidekick
Performed by: Jym Britton
Parody on You’re Beautiful by James Blunt

My Cubicle
My cubicle
It’s One of Sixtytwo
It’s small space
In a crowded place
Just a six-by-six foot booth
And I hate it that’s the truth

Thanks to my former cubemate Dee for sending the song to me.
