    This is awesome, I love stuff like this! After work I’ma have to take a crack at this!

  • http://bitstop-nfld.blogspot.com/ Karen

    Neat puzzle, figured it out in about 15 minutes except for the solution! I was using the decoded words instead of the actual words (I don’t think that will give anything away). Thanks for the brain challenge on this rainy day.

  • a.e.

    That seem to me to be rediculously dificult.
    Good thing I cheated. :)

  • Stan

    Nice, saw this puzzle before going out this morning, had a go when I got back. Had the same problem as Karen but figured it out eventually :)

  • http://davemania.com Dave

    I did it without cheating!
    Shame I have no proof.

  • steve

    i started translating into ms word so i could color code my translations, based on which colors i thought i figured out the rules for. i dont think karens and stans comments ruined anything but do make me think im just going off in the wrong direction now, lol.

    • Stan

      Steve: just carry on translating until you get all the words and it’ll make sense!

      • steve

        ah yep, it did :) just had me overthinking it for a moment was all.

  • MR.

    i feel so retarded. i looked at it for 5 minutes and still cant get anywhere with it.

    a little hint to get your started:

    whirred = word

Crowdfund Project of the Day: BrushKnob by Wataru Kami

brushknob02

This one may excite all you digital illustrators out there! BrushKnob is a device designed to make the creation of your digital artwork more intuitive. Developed while working as a concept artist at a production company in Tokyo, Wataru Kami’s invention is simple to use and incredibly streamlined. With only two functions — a knob to control brush size and a switch to transition between the brush and eraser tools — it operates like an extra keyboard and can be used with any application (not just Photoshop) using the same keyboard shortcuts assigned.

More images and information about how to support Kami’s project below!
