A speech by famed chess player Garry Kasparov was interrupted Saturday by a remote controlled flying penis. Since many of you are at work or school we’ll leave all the pictures, videos, and tasteless jokes after the break.
LOLDongs definitely aren’t the main order of business in this office, but we have to admire the child like glee the builder of this contraption must have experienced. RC helicopters definitely are our expertise as we’ve covered several mini RC helicopter projects before: using an IR camera for position tracking, quad-copters at CCCamp, and basic building tips, but never anything so… turgid.
While first watching the video, we too were struck by the similarities to the infamous griefing attack on Second Life land baron Anshe Chung in 2006. While there doesn’t appear to be any hard evidence this was inspired by its virtual counterpart it is interesting to see the crossover into the real world. In both cases, the end result is the same: a room full of chuckles, an embarrassed speaker, and the blogosphere suddenly becomes dick pundits. At least we can agree on this: some things just weren’t meant to be airborne.
