When you wake up on a Sunday morning to messages from readers that say: "You have to see this," there are a few potential reactions.
One: "Oh, someone's trying to get to write about their new, very slightly useless gizmo."
Three: "This video could actually be worth seeing."
Grumpily clicking on "play" on this video posted to Digg, but originally to LiveLeak (and who knows where before that), I still feared the worst. It was entitled: "How to Pull a Live Cat Out of a Laptop."
What ensued were 7 minutes of really quite captivating video editing, even if the live cat appeared to emerge from a desktop screen, rather than a laptop.
Before the promised live cat emerged, a laptop was used as a waffle maker.
After the cuddly kitten comes to life, there's a whole series of set pieces in which this unnamed performer manages to levitate an iPhone and turns it into a juice dispenser and a popcorn cooker. He also turns a juice bottle into a candy bottle.
It's all perfectly immature amusement, but sometimes that can make a significant contribution to life.
I do wonder, though, how many hours this gentleman took to create his opus, and whether he is a start-up CEO in his spare time.
