A roving UHub photographer captured the scene this morning at the Great Dome, where Pacman hopes to gobble up the energy pills while avoiding Blinky.
I saw the image earlier on Boston Magazine's page and thought "so what". Apparently they were a day late and a dollar short, they completely missed the scaffolding and shot in sunlight, so the effect of the dots was not in their photo.

Or energy pellet, as the case may be. The Globe got there too late as well.
Guess getting up at the crack for work had a fringe benefit today.
I think this particular hack has been done before (the last time the dome had scaffold) but it's still good. Word is they defeated alarms and cameras to pull this off. Pretty sneaky, sis.
Sitting here in my office and it's still up. It'd be neat to just leave it until the oculus work is complete.
An hour later, it's gone. Game over.
I happened to snap a photo at midnight - didn't realize what I had until a half hour ago.
I wasted many and hour and a quarter on it in a bar, but that was many year's ago.
