Perler beads [56K warning?]

What are perler beads?

Just the best thing ever. You put the beads on a grid, iron them, and they stick together. Perfect for making sprite art.

My brother did all these, it's probably the most badass thing he's ever done.

I was thinking a pearl necklace when I first read the thread title.

Neat.

I was thinking about a different kind of "Beads", but this is awesome too.

Probably no one, I was harkening back to the days when I saw that on forums.

Year before last when I was in MS for a while I had to use 56k. Amazing how long it would take songs to download (legally through emusic) Worst year of my life (not really, but pretty f*ing close)

Is there a place you can get designs and things to copy because I have little to no artistic ability.

Broadband penetration in the US is still under 55% last time I checked and only growing at 2-3 percent a year.

Seriously? I couldn't imagine using 56k anymore, anything past e-mail and simple web browsing would be unbearable. Web applications are no longer designed for 56k.

Granted that could mean they have no internet at all, which is pretty much every old person. If we are only losing them at 2-3 percent a year that is too slow!

You live in a major city, according to your little info, there. Try going outside those cities. It's pathetic how our behind our infrastructure is.

Please tell me you read the actual report with it's flawed data before posting....the real number is very hard to come by since some providers actively lie. A different report listed the state of Kentucky as having 100% broadband penetration which is a joke.

Only on the P1P boards can a thread about beads devolve into a debate about broadband penetration.

Obviously that 45 (43) percent doesn't come here!

28.8? Damn, isn't that like 1-2kbps? By the time he's done fapping the picture would've reached her navel.

I finally started messing around with Perler Beads. I made a post about it on our blog.

Long story short: these things are awesome.

Oh, SwimOdin...your Mega Man sprite seems to be missing the tip of his Mega Buster. :(
