Six articles from this week on PopSci are immortalized in Baarbarian's proud sigil here. Can you identify all six?
Post your answer in the comments. The first comment with the correct, complete answer will be chosen to win a copy of the illustration on a T-shirt. (If you can't wait, you can buy your own right here.)
Until next time, enjoy our past weekly illustrated roundups here.
Brain freeze, biggest wind farm, genetically modified salmon,wing flapping Canadian, and coil gun.
All of the above plus the dancing robo-swan
Dancing Robot Swan
No way, this is the best one EVAR
I gotta go with Stephen. Often I think these illustrations are silly and, well, of course they're contrived, but I mean *too* contrived. Things don't fit together well and just don't make a good image.
This one - It really came together. I identified every one but the brain freeze. I knew I had read something about brains, but couldn't remember what it was. For some reason the blue didn't scream "ice" to me, but when someone else pointed it out, I thought it was a perfect and simple symbolic representation. And every one of the symbols but the wind turbines and the brain fit very well into the schema.
And the brain, well, sometimes there's a halo in those images (and always *something* hovers above the central bird image... it's just the disembodied brain didn't seem as cleanly technological like the rest of the drawing), so it kinda fit. the turbines might seem not to fit very well, but they are tastefully understated which makes them work anyway. If they don't enhance the image, they certainly don't detract from it.
whoever did this one - keep it up!
I want this shirt, and plus I'm Canadian. So it would look good :P
