Print Story Not the real PS3

There is a graphic doing the rounds right now that is believed to be a genuine PS3 concept image. Most sources seem to trace it back to this page on Gizmodo. The truth is, the image has nothing to do with Sony - it is actually, AFAICT, a French student's homework.


Roughly translated, the text on that page reads:
I'll show you my first work here. It is a NURBS based exercise that my girlfriend must do for her design school, and we thought it would be nice do do one each. It is drawn with Rhino 3 (nurbs based) and rendered with Brazil (no merit ?).

In other unrelated news, my website referral logs tell me I got 300 hits from http://hateatron.com/ in November, but I have no idea why.

The PS3 is a waffle iron!

Wacky. Nice to know that Internet is as excellent a source of disinformation as ever.

If the PS3 ends up able to make waffles, it will increase the chance that I buy it. I don't know if Sony executives read HuSi diaries for ideas, but there's a little market research knocked out for them.

Mmmmm, waffles...

It *would* put a different spin on grid computing. by Canthros (5.00 / 2) #3 Tue Dec 02, 2003 at 12:49:20 AM EST
But I especially look foward to having having controllers which double as syrup dispensers.

if it had a refillable syrup faucet you'd never have to leave the bed.

What is needed is a syrup pipline, connecting the rest of the world to the Candian syrup mines. The time of bottled syrup is over! It is time for syrup on tap!

Great idea by theboz (5.00 / 2) #7 Tue Dec 02, 2003 at 01:16:14 AM EST
I think there's an extra port on the PS3 modem/NIC/IDE connecter/etc so it can be set up with draught syrup.

Eventually the waffles and syrup would need to be emptied from the user.
