Pure Photos

0

Photographer Robin de Puy teamed up with Spa, and spent 6 months developing the technique to take photographs through a drop of water.  It’s quite something to be honest, though it’s wildly impractical.  In order to get it working, they had to use a Teflon coated glass plate, an electrical current, and mirrors.  It’s all … Continued

The One

0

That’s what they hoped the new Xbox would be.  The One. Well, not really, it was just based off of the love of The Matrix, and ideas that it would be a unique, immersive world.  The rest of the video goes over some of the history of how the video game console came to fruition. … Continued

JavaScript Code City

These might not appeal to everyone of my readers, they are more of a computer programmer’s domain, I think they are pretty dang ace though.  Using a code analysis tool, they pushed though the entire code base of a bunch of JavaScript libraries to see how the code is structured visually.  Each set of functions … Continued

360° DSLR

You know that I love 360° video and photo.  I think it’s the next big thing in the world of photography.  Up until now the only way to get really high quality content was to attach multiple cameras together in rigs and stitch the resulting footage after the fact.  That’s all changing now.  Sphere is … Continued

Modern Organs

Wendell Kapustiak built a modern Pipe Organ.  Modern in the sense that naturally, it’s computer controlled.  The air is supplied by a modified server cooling fan. The keys are played by an Arduino.  And the songs are chosen by a web interfaced run on a Rasberry Pi. It is pretty neat, I will give him … Continued

The latest game in my favorite PC game franchise has been released.  Rollercoaster Tycoon World.  You can buy it now on Steam, it’s only $34.  That’s not bad, it harks back to the older times when games were cheap.  Hopefully it’s not meant to show it’s quality, as many of the reviews on Steam give … Continued

  Yes, I could have kept this in the original Strange instruments post last week.  But I don’t care, this belongs as it’s own post.  Like it, love it., listen to it! {Imgur}

Daily 360

0

The New York Times is doing one of those 365 photo projects.  Except it’s video, and it’s 360° video.  And it’s pretty cool. I am a believer in 360°, I think it will be the future.  However, we need to get the bitrate compression better for the videos.  Everything looks like crap. You can check … Continued

DIY CNC

0

  Technically this is a computer numerical controlled machine, though it’s not the same thing that most people think of when they hear CNC Machine.  It looks pretty easy to build.  There’s not much to it.  Anyone remotely interested in computers has a plethora of old unused optical drives that they can re-purpose.  I’m not … Continued
