      The Oculus

      Anybody know anything about This? I just ran across it this morning, but I have to go to work so I can't mess around with it too much. Looks interesting, though.

      You merely have to change your point of view slightly, and then that glass will sparkle when it reflects the light.

      I really don't have time to figure out which of the 8! different combinations opens this stupid thing. I think the programmers failed miserably in making something that people will want to crack.

      Quoted from http://oculus.wikibruce.com/page/Beginners_Guide:

      In an attempt not to duplicate what's been laid out in the Outline and Timeline, I'll describe the basic premise of the 'OE' ARG.

      * ABC Family began televising ads for an upcoming movie special called "Fallen", airing July 23, 2006. On their website's homepage for the show, there was an image of an Oculus in the bottom corner, prompting people to look through the oculus, and 'begin your journey'.
      This, along with a video posted on Youtube, prompted people to go the website oculareffect.com.

      * On arriving, they'd notice that they were directed to 00112358.net (mathematical minds will notice that the numbers belong to the beginning of the fibonacci sequence), where there was a flash video with concentric gears and a date and time counting down. The 0-day was July 17th, 2006 10:00pm EST.

      * Nothing could be done until July 17th, except speculate. When July 17th arrived, the countdown ended, and 00112358.com began to show a floating orb with symbols on it, orbited by a smaller yellow glowing orb, orbited in turn by the scripted letter V. Clicking the V opened the orb (the Oculus), leading to a small puzzle.

      * Within the oculus were three concetric rings of 7 symbols. These rings could be rotated, and when rotated so the symbols lined up, it would redirect to the website of Vixtattoos.com. And thus the mystery begins.
      It's changed since then I think but it's still pretty easy, find where you can click a link on the globe, the little moon will come around and you click on the characters for different puzzles

      Everything works out in the end, sometimes even badly.

      Deeper into the rabbit hole, the story ends over 2 years ago.
