71 Iconic Moments in History Being Debased With Galaxy Gears

Following the announcement of Samsung's Galaxy Gear, we asked you to insert these tiny wearable computers into the most iconic and absurd scenes in history you could think of. The results are spectacular.

In the end, though, there can only be one winner, so congratulations ejhman—your pro job on Napoleon took the cake. Not only is it masterfully done, but to quote your own bastardized version Louis Marchand's words,"The General famously kept his Galaxy Gear a glance away at all times."

The honorable mentions and their creators lie below in no particular order. To everyone else, better luck next time.

Photoshop Contest: Put a Galaxy Gear Into an Iconic Historical Image

Time may just be a social construct, but it's one of the rare bits of humanity that will more or less always remain constant. However, the same cannot be said for our timepieces that no longer tell time—our ever-evolving watches.

As convenient and functional as they might be, smartwatches lack the romanticism of traditional watches. And there's no better way to prove this point than to stick a bunch of Galaxy Gears in places where they need not be—iconic historical scenes and images. So be as creative as you want; you can use paintings, photos, movie stills—anything at all so long as you stuff in a Samsung Galaxy Gear.

Submissions will be graded on originality, technique, and laffs; you'll have from now until the end of the day this coming Tuesday, September 9 to submit your entry in Kinja down below. We'll announce the lucky winners that Wednesday. Until then, best of luck to you all.
