What you are seeing here is actually an iPad “finger painting” produced by artist Kyle Lambert, who invested 200 hours and 285,000 brush strokes into the project. Apparently the idea for an ultra high resolution portrait came about when Lambert learned of the Procreate program’s 4k canvas support on Apple’s new 64-bit line of iPads.

If you’re still having trouble believing, hit the jump to check out a time lapse of the creative process.

After checking out the video after the jump, you may be wondering why it’s lacking the enlightening moment when this guy realizes he’s holding paper rather than his iPad. Here’s your answer:

“This morning as Simon McCoy was preparing to introduce this story, instead of picking up his tablet to hold as he went to air, he mistakenly picked up a ream of paper that was sitting next to it. In the rush of live news, he didn’t have an opportunity to swap the items, so simply went with it.”

I imagine the time crunch also prevented him from dropping it on the ground or heaving it off camera.

Although the video after the break is about the production of iPads, it’s also a behind the scenes look at Foxconn, where Rob Schmitz, Shanghai Bureau Chief of American Public Media’s Marketplace, recently gained access to speak candidly with workers. During the visit, he noted the hoards of people lining up to get jobs and the city-like size of the Foxconn campus, where nearly 50,000 of the company’s 240,000 employees live. Schmitz also spoke with his tour guide, Louis Woo, about the recent media coverage surrounding the factory’s working conditions in the wake of several employee suicides.

As we’ve seen in the past, Wicked Lasers isn’t screwing around when it comes to making powerful lasers. Besides having the ability to appear 8,000 times brighter than the sun and cover a range of 85 miles, Wicked Lasers’ creations can pop popcorn kernels, burn your hand, blind you, and screw up satellites from a distance.

That’s why some guy decided to use their Spyder III, S3 Arctic and S3 Krypton models togehter to slowly torch an iPad, capturing the whole process on video for your education and amusement. Check it out after the break.

Over the holiday weekend, Jon Hendren compiled a series of tweets from spoiled douchebags that didn’t get cars or iPads for Christmas. The results are quite infuriating.
