Playable Tetris T-Shirt

0

It’s been quite awhile since I’ve featured a Tetris post.  I don’t know if that’s because there has been a lull in the game, or if I just haven’t seen any new appreciations towards it.  Oh well, that time is up now.  Mark Kerger has made a playable Tetris t-shirt using one of our favorite … Continued

Speed is Bad for you

0

While I could only watch the above video for about 25 seconds before I got a headache, I figure I should at least give all my readers the pleasure of this lovely experience as well. Ryan Fox duct-taped a GoPro camera to the tire of a car, and then drove around while it was switched … Continued

Waves of Grain

Keith Skretch has a interesting time-lapse video for us.  He took a piece of wood, and planed it down to nothing.  After each pass of the plane, he took a photo of the wood.  Repeat the process a few hundred times, combine the frames and add music and you’re presented with the above video. I … Continued

Life in the 3rd Person

0

GoPros, The Oculus Rift, 3-D printing, Arudino, all these things, combined with some ingenuity, and time produced this strange idea to make a camera rig that translates the world into the 3rd person.  I think it would give you a headache rather easily.  But if the story of wearing glasses that make everything upside down, … Continued

Group Photos

0

This is why I hate taking photos of people and groups.  Too many cameras, too many things. Anyway, the above video is not so much a group photo, as an experiment.  Will one random passer by take 40 different photos of a group (one photo on each (various) camera from each individual)?  It’s a pretty … Continued

Alternate History Thursday – VR D-Day

Today marks a turning point in World War 2.   Both in the present reality, and in our alternate reality. 70 years ago Allied forces begun the largest seaborne invasion in the history of the world.  While the term D-Day is a generic military term denoting the day a particular attack or event is supposed … Continued

How EGG Crate Foam is made

0

Once you watch this video, it all makes perfect sense.  Especially since it’s foam, foam is squishy, it makes sense that by passing it between two rollers and a saw you would get the pattern.  Still, How it’s made, awesome. {Evil Mad Scientist}

The SKY!

0

This is a pretty neat idea.  Using NASA’s Gamma-Ray Coordinate Network, a team of developers have hooked it up with Google Sky Map to provide real time information about the heavens above your very head.  It’s pretty powerful.  Now if only we could have faster than light travel, or some sort of photos from these … Continued

AR/VR/Holodeck?

0

What a magical time we’re living in.  With Google Glass, Oculus Rift, and now castAR, it really seems like in not too long of a time we’ll have something like the Holodeck from Star Trek. While it’s true that just yesterday I was preaching for scientists to stop their research, and leave things alone.  That … Continued

Mechanical Clock

0

There’s something to be said about the beauty of a purely mechanical piece of equipment.  Something that has moving parts, but has no electricity running through it at all.  Something that would work 1,000 years ago, 1,000 years into the future, and anywhere (that gravity is of earth’s constant of 9.8 m/s2).  I’d love to make … Continued
