Have You Had Your Trip Today?

When I was a child, my parents took me to the Exploratorium in San Francisco. Making even more of an impression on me than an original stand-up arcade version of Pong and simple laser light demonstrations was a curious little device that demonstrated the power of optical illusion. The entirety of this highly sophisticated machine consisted of a foot-diameter black-and-white spiral rotating slowly. 60 Second Trip brings a slightly more complex version of that spiral to your Web browser. Little Fluffy Industries says "This neat optical trick will give you the same trippy feeling you'd get from spinning around real fast," but it's actually much cooler than that. Bascom-Bob says check it out.

Whohooooh! Trippy dude. I haven't been to the planetarium in forever, although we did shoot part of a movie just outside of there. That place is super cool.

Yeah, great time at the Exploratorium. We should all get together and go again -- revive the childlike excitement in all of us.
