Flip Flap


Recently my wife attended a seminar in Las Vegas; she returned with a souvenir, Flip Flap, for our daughter. While sick with the flu last week, I made two quickie videos for testing purposes, using the Nokia N900 cell phone and Leica D-LUX 4 compact digicam. Because my wife so liked Flip Flap, the videos were a treat for her, too. I shot this video, edited with Apple’s iMovie, using the Leica camera.

Flip Flap is solar powered. The box reads: “Flip Flap is a cute flower bud which moves by light. Please grow your Flip Flap in your mind and bloom your own special flower.” OK, imagine away. 🙂 Video length is purposely 30 seconds, hoping that’s short enough to avoid any copyright issues with the music—intro to “Stupid Girl” by Swedish singer Miss Li.
