This project is still on my ‘to-do’ list. Haven’t had much luck finding an overhead projector nor scanner for cheap (craiglisters are so flakey!!).
Yeah, I’m going to have to sneak into work on the weekend and hope my bosses don’t find me and question my mentality. That limits me to what I can do with the scanner though – no breaking it apart to get cool effects 🙁
He made that by placing the apples on the glass of a scanner, covering them with a cloth and then scanning them like you’d scan a printed photograph. So basically, it’s any image you can create by scanning objects, as long as it’s not just scanning a photo.
good lord the geeks are going to get busy on this one… I just bought a new scanner/printer (all of $60), and as cheap as they are there’s a lot of room for maybe putting it in interesting situations….
Until you said this, I was convinced that I had to go find a scanner to use. I’ve had a scanner/printer combo for the past five years. How could I not remember that? I see it multiple times every day! Well, at least this contest will be easier than I thought it would.
Well I just asked my room mate if he had a scanner. He got up, went to his closet and handed me a scanner / printer that somebody gave him for free. Now all I have to do is find the software online and I am in business. Woot.
