weird science, Eye: RCA Magic Eye, tech

There's a reason they call this a FOLLY (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Folly).

Melbourne Millionire Wants To Build Cell Phone-Shaped Skyscraper.

Two primary thoughts on this:

  • Doesn't this guy realize that this will never look cool? By the time it's finished, it'll look like an Obsolete Cell Phone -- hellfire, it already does. 10 years from now, it'll look quaint. 20 years from now, everyone but but the Turn of the Century Retro Nostalgia Crowd will scratch their heads and wonder what it's supposed to look like anyway.
  • Does this remind anyone else of the sort of stuff Bill Finger used to populate Gotham City with in the '40s?

Well, at least this guy will have another entry for his web site.
