  1. Interesting topic for an ambigram challenge and 4 submissions allowed! Nice :) I will work on this challenge once I am done with ambigram revealed work :)

  2. waw!!so challenging..:)
    i think i’ve got an idea..hehehe

  3. Excellent challenge!

    Can we do inventions that changed the world, or just discoveries?

  4. Very, very interesting challange!

  5. Jen, it could be both discoveries or inventions.

  6. Can I invent something, name it and then create an ambigram? ;)

  7. Sharath,

    If you can do that within a month, absolutely! But your invention or discovery HAS to change the world. That’s the only rule.

  8. OK, invent a machine that’s a natural ambigram. Simple.

  9. No, better– invent a machine that can make ambigrams, with a name that is a natural ambigram.

  10. Handdrawn Shcmandrawn

  11. Would Burger King’s Whopper qualify as a world changing item? Just asking. Don’t judge. :)

  12. “internet” , an invention that changeee the world so much?? it can be, use?

  13. Uhh well… Eureka is out of contention to submit…. Dang!

    Well… got ideas for two. Will think of two more.

  14. Trust it is ok to draw the ambigram on a grid paper like the one “Eureka” is shown on? I don’t know about others here, But I for one will struggle with symmetry without grid lines?

  15. Himanshu- or u could draw grid on a paper n then erase it later on.. Looks elegant that ways:)

  16. You could also draw it on grid paper, then trace it onto clean paper once you’ve perfected it!

  17. Hi there. Any updates on this?

  18. Himanshu,
    This will be posted in the next day or two, along with the results of ACAC03.

  19. Umm… not really keen on results so much. Just curious to see the submissions that came in. That’s always so much fun. :)
