__new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line__The raised chrome bin Laden looks like a liquid metal Terrorist-1000, probably the only worse misuse of technology than this product, while an engraved "9_11" means even the blind know it's horrific. When you use it, a red LED lights up the explosion of the first crash and electrically confirms that, yes, you are going to hell. It then plays computerized Mozart. Because reducing an orchestral symphony to a zero-cent screeching sound chip doesn't even count as desecration at this point.__new_line____new_line__The only upside is that this will never arrive in America because it's an electrical circuit connected to a tank of flammable liquid. So anyone trying to carry one across an American border will be Tazed until he catches fire.__new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line__
Space Invaders Destroy the Twin Towers

' 30th birthday by by combining the game with the destruction of the Twin Towers
. We can't confirm if his next project is a Pac-Man
version of ebola, but only because he's been milking the 9/11 thing for 10 years -- he made the first version the month of the attack
. Just in case you thought it was thoughtful reflection in art instead of a desperate lunge for attention. __new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line__
__new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line__His 8-bit adaptation features the unstoppable aliens demolishing the Twin Towers as the player flails (it's motion controlled to make sure everyone involved looks like a goddamned idiot), complete with pixelated victims leaping to their doom. He even reprogrammed the game with suicide-crashing space invaders. So no, '80s cartoon porn isn't the only the only way technology can ruin your childhood.__new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line____new_line__

was shown off at the 2008 Games Convention in Leipzig, after seven years of work, and turned off a few days later, after the rest of the world heard about it. Taito threatened to sue the artist directly and the entire convention besides
, and it was their own most popular game's birthday party.__new_line____new_line__Douglas then released his next work, a bold re-interpretation of the word "douchebag" in the modern poetic form of non-apology. "The American response to this work has been, frankly, immature, and lacking the sophistication and consideration that other parts of the world have so far shown this work."
Sophistication and maturity are odd concepts for someone who just made an exercise video game about murder. This considerate artist has brought the same level of depth, reflection and desperation for attention to his latest project: a camera app
based on an Internet meme about cats.__new_line____new_line__Luke McKinney also tumbles and has a website.
