  3. Banksy’s October in New York Is Almost Over, So We Take a Look Back

    OK, art geeks. Here's your Banksy month in review.

    We recently found out that one of Banksy's latest works was done by buying a painting from charity thrift store Housing Works, adding to it, and then returning it. The thrift store now stands to raise a bunch of money off of the proceeds for charity, which was no doubt Banksy's goal. We take a look at what else he's done this month in New York.

  4. Why Do People Keep Defacing Banksy’s Work in New York ?

    Yes, we understand the immense irony of that question.

    This morning, Banksy posted three new images to his Instagram and website as part of his month-long romp around New York City. They haven't even been up that long, and apparently one of them has already been whitewashed. What gives?

  5. Banksy New York Scavenger Hunt: Day Three

    Banksy has turned NYC into a weird art race.

    October is shaping up to be a great month for art geeks in New York City because Banksy is in town trying to put on an entire show on the streets of the city. It's become a de facto game, the object of which is to get to the piece before someone else tags over it. It's not even noon, and we're already late to today's party. Thanks a lot, Raffzilla.

  7. Drones, Drones Everywhere: German Railway to Test Anti-Graffiti Drones Despite Privacy Concerns

    Germany's national railway is testing small surveillance drones to stop graffiti, because of course.

    Germany is a country that takes its privacy very seriously. Google has had a number of problems with German privacy laws in the past, which is why it's surprising to see that the country's national rail system is considering using surveillance drones to stop people from vandalizing railway stations. When I say, "stop people," they'll just be gathering evidence as a preventative measure, not firing missiles at vandals or anything like that. At least not yet.

  9. Image Fulgurator Lets You Photobomb In The Coolest Way Possible

    The Image Fulgurator, brainchild of one Julius von Bismark, is a device that is as cool as it is awesome. It does amazing things amazingly and gets me really excited. Also, it allows a user to photobomb other people's pictures by essentially regurgitating an image onto the photographed object for the split second the photobombee is taking the picture. But I'm getting a little ahead of myself here. So the way a traditional camera works is that light reflected off the object being photographed travels into the lens which projects it onto the film. Bam, a picture. Digital cameras don't have film, but the principle is the same. The Image Fulgurator works the opposite way. You start with a picture and the Fulgurator uses its flash to project the light from the film onto the object being photographed via the lens. Basically a split second projection. An anti-photograph. If a camera sucks an image down onto film, Ghostbusters style, the Fulgurator pukes it back up. Now how does this all tie into photobombing?

  10. QR Hobo Codes Let You Leave Secret Messages for the Tech-Savvy

    Using a couple of neat programs, laser cut stencils and a can of spray chalk, you can start a revolution and begin leaving QR hobo codes with secret messages for your smartphone-carrying brethren. If that sounds kind of cool, but doesn't immediately make sense to you, here's a little history. First off, hobo codes were glyphs originally used back in the pre-internet Stone Age as a way for hobos to communicate important information to each other, but not non-hobo squares like you (presumably) and me. One seemingly random symbol would mean "this underpass is a safe place to sleep" and another might mean "talk about religion here and get a free meal." This kind of communication eventually inspired a guy named Matt Jones to propose a thing called warchalking. Warchalking, a combination between hobo signs and wardriving (well, warwalking really) consisted of hobo sign-esque chalk symbols that told travelers about things like insecure wifi networks. While QR hobo coding isn't directly related to warchalking (as far as I can tell) it's sort of a spiritual successor. QR hobo codes don't necessarily pertain to tech information, but they're inherently tech-y by virtue of being QR codes and they still have that "this is our little secret" vibe, while being common knowledge enough that they might catch on big time. But that's enough of a history lesson. How do you make these things?
