Unloading the Container!

Posted by 8-Bit Lit (Creator)

Hey everyone, the container arrived this morning! 

Unfortunately, our forklift didn't, so we had to improvise. Check out the time-lapse video we made!

CONTEST: At what point does Adam take a break to eat a cup-o-noodles?

FOR THE NERDY: We took a shot every 10 seconds, and the video is 15 fps. How long did it take us to finish after the forklift showed up?

      I wish I got tracking and shipping :(
      Unfortunately, we have to celebrate Christmas on Monday or Tuesday this year due to scheduling of the whole family. Looks unlikely that I will be able to give my brother his gift on time.

      Adam you took a break to eat a cup-o-noodles around 27 seconds (It was one of the middle frames at the 27 second marker). This makes it about 1 hour and 7.5 minutes into the unloading process (10*15*27=4050=67.5minutes) You then put the cup down at 28 seconds (again one of the middle frames), so at about 1 hour and 10 minutes. This means you took about 2.5 minutes to eat before putting the cup-o-noodles down.

      The entire unloading process took about 2 hours and 5 minutes. 15 * 10 * 50 = 7,500 = 2 hours 5 minutes

      So Evan and Sam, at what point in the loading process did I eat the cup-o-noodles?

      @Sam Brown
      The video is 50 seconds not 49. 15 * 10 * 50 = 7,500 = 2 hours 5 minutes

    16. Sam Brown

      (Tho the forklift's only in there for the last 4 seconds of video. That's not the contest answer, folks. ;) )

    17. Sam Brown

      15 fps * 49 s * 10 f/s = 7,350 seconds = 2 hours 2 minutes 30 seconds.

      Hey Greezer. For international, it's possible but not likely. We can upgrade the shipping if you'd like though. Just email

    19. greezer on

      I don't want to WIN a lamp, I'd be happy if mine arrives before xmas..

      Hey Audrianna! We'll ship as many as possible out on Monday. Everything close to LA should be 1-2 days.

    21. Gail Morozoff on

      I love the video! I can hardly wait! Mine are being shipped 1st right??!! LOL. JUST KIDDING- although I certainly wouldn't complain! :-D

    22. Hrag Chanchanian on

      28 sec! Cup O' Noodles @ 28 sec!

    23. Audrianna Rae on

      Can't wait! For the fact that the lamps are shipping out of LA, would it be a matter of days to receive these when living in other parts of the state (for example NorCal?)
