I Want A “Work Blind”

September 13th, 2005 | by Mike |

Some guy made a “Work Blind” for his cubicle.

I had [info]buttercup666 stand in my neighbor’s cubicle and take a picture of me hard at work. Then I straightened the photo, undistorted it, and cropped it to the area in the doorway. I took it to Kinko’s where they printed it onto vinyl, and grommeted the top with a kit that [info]matrushkaka bought me. The result: The Work Blind. Think of it as the modern version of Jughead drawing eyes on his eyelids so that everyone thinks he’s awake and paying attention all day, or Wile E. Coyote painting a tunnel entrance on the side of a cliff.

Here’s an image of it in action

Now, I don’t really work in a cubeicle, so this wouldn’t really work for my environment, but there are lots of applications for this. Fat people on a diet can put a picture of themselves sitting in their room doing nothing, but really they are downing a whole box of Ding-Dongs. You could…ok, helping the fat guy get fatter is the only application I could think of right now, but I’m sure there are more.
