DIY 3D LED POV

0

Is that enough acronyms in the title?  No, I think I can get a few more, don’t you?  I find the rotating LED signs interesting, though useless.  I can’t think of a reason to make one, and as such, I don’t really want to spend too much of my already valuable time making one.  I … Continued

Woodworking!

0

The Japanese are pretty crazy when it comes to their wood working joinery skills.  I remember reading somewhere that it’s all due to the lack of raw materials on the islands.  That meant that they couldn’t use nails, or forge large iron plates to connect timber together, instead they had to come up with these … Continued

The Things you can do with a GoPro

For real, who would have thought years ago that we would be spending time watching animals drink water from a bucket on a farm?  This is the type of nature show you want to watch.  Except, maybe in the wild, not on a farm, with picturesque farm animals. It is neat though seeing how the … Continued

Installation 01

0

Community re-built games have a tendency to look amazing, but never get anywhere.  I’ve never heard of Installation 01, but they just released a trailer for their work, you can watch it here: It’s a pretty damn good trailer, and it’s amazing at how closely it seems to have followed the source material of primarily … Continued

I was shown this at work the other day, I could explain it, but it’s only 2 minutes long, just watch it.

Compressed Water Rocket

0

Often called a Pop bottle rocket, or something similar.  This is something else entirely.  This is a true multi-stage rocket powered by water and air that reaches up to 800 feet in altitude.  I particularly like the Red, White, and Blue “exhaust” I remember spending Saturday afternoons with the car compressor and a cork launching … Continued

Orion Over Sky

0

Sriram Murali created the above video to show the effects that light pollution has on the beautiful night sky.  In it, he focuses on the constellation Orion, and how our perception of it changes based on the light density of the area we view it from.  The entire thing is a great example of one … Continued

360 Drone Racing

0

More like a practice run if you ask me.  I’ve flown drones like this before, they are not easy to control, I know I would crash it trying to make those sharp turns.  One thing I think should be kept out of these drone videos though is the audio.  I don’t want, or need to … Continued

WAR!

0

Turns out, World War I wasn’t really good for anything except messing up things.  Anyway, last week marked the 100th anniversary of the deceleration of war on the Empire of Germany.  The exact date was April 04, 1917.  In real terms, there were lots of Americans in the war in one way or another, but … Continued

Voyageurs Northern Lights

0

In 8K! Well, if you can even render 8K on your puny monitor that is.  This was taken up in Voyageurs National Park, way up in northern Minnesota, like, way up there on the border of Canada.  It’s not a place that’s easy to get to as much of the park consists of lakes and rivers, … Continued
