Felt Magnetic Katamari Playset
OOOOOOH! that made my day right there. i think everyone in the office is wondering why the weird guy is laughing really loud right about now.
The soundtrack on this clip is pure punk-rock win.
Thanks, now that song is going to be in my head for the next month. I actually got a hand me down ps2 just for this game. Time to fire it up again, I guess.
Any other katamari superfans out there might like to know that Panic (makers of fine Mac software like Transmit and Coda) also for some reason make a few awesome Katamari t-shirts. http://panic.com/goods/#katamari
This is fantastic!!! My husband was just asking me what I want for X-mas (he’s a bit late with the shopping, this year, but we aren’t big into the X-mas), and I was having trouble thinking of much.
Now, instead of waiting up for santa claus, I’m going to write a note to the king of all cosmos, asking him to entrust me with a katamari, because I’m all about some rolling.
This one is also pretty awesome, though you have to make it yourself: http://amysbabies.wordpress.com/magnetic-katamari-pattern/
I routinely roll everything up on my desk.
Sweet! Now, where can I get a stack of rare-earth magnets on the cheap?
…and thus continues the eternal question. Fucking magnets, how do they work?!
Music was the best part.
IronEdithKidd, keep an eye on BensBargains.net. They occasionally have a set that would be perfect for this. A couple hundred tiny magnetic balls for something like $30.
