Have You Seen This? Color Adventure with Sticky Notes'

THE RAINBOW If you have seen an OK Go music video, some Alfred Hitchcock movies or any episodes of Neflixs "Daredevil," you know the power and wonder that a long take can be.

Sony Action Cam (Sonys answer to the GoPro) has made such a video with sticky notes. What is so exciting about sticky notes, you say? Well, lets break it down.

  1. Gone are the days of office-yellow sticky notes. Now you can get them in virtually all the same colors that come in your crayon box. Theres neon, jewel and pastel collections, as well as more sizes and shapes than you can shake a stick at. (And thats coming from an expert stick shaker.)

  2. They are inherently sticky. Not only can you place them in so many gravity-defying places, but you can stick them strategically together to make a massive sticky note of doom or fold non-unfoldable shapes.

  3. Giant pixel-style art is a piece of cake. All you need is imagination, probably some graph paper for planning (which also comes in sticky note form), and several colors of sticky notes. See what can be done with these awesome sticky note murals here.

  4. Sticky notes dont only come in regular stacks, but theyre sold in alternating stacks, allowing a slinky-like action when you try to pull one off as normal. Fun!

  5. Last but not least, if youre really creative and have a moving camera on a track, you can make a fun sort of Rube Goldberg machine, such as the one featured in this video, that is synchronized to music and sounds. Bonus: The actions are perpetuated by four giddy humans who look like theyre having the time of their life. (Not a true Rube Goldberg, I know.)

The smile-inducing romp or joy bit takes place in the first 2.5 minutes of the video, and the last minute or so is a quick behind-the-scenes breakdown of the camera set up.
