  • Microcontroller Madness…..

    Not sure if this madness will be the next big thing for the Demo Scene, but it sure is nice to see some the younger generation using their talents to come up with these circuits. In the old days — yeah I’m gonna date myself now — I used to do Demo programming on the […]

  • WRDL or is it Wordle….which ever way you say it, it spells fun :-)

    Head over to wordle.net and try your hand at creating a work of art using only words. It’s fun and if you’re lucky will only entertain you for a couple of hours (not days). Now back to WRDL for more ANMTD WRD PLY FN.

  • Styrobot….Something creative my mind never came up with

    Yeah, now I know what I am gonna do with the packing foam that comes with the purchase of our next 50 Dell Servers. Michael Salter’s creations can be viewed at San Jose Museum of Art, Robots:Evolution of a Cultural Icon, up thru 10/08. Totally cool and creative. Definitely one for the “I wish I’d […]

FFFFOUND! has an almost analog […]

  • Free Power…..

  • Image Slicing and Stretching….

    Found this while having a beer in Stuttgart, Germany. Video of the excellent paper presented by Shai Avidan from Mitsubishi Electric Research Laboratories (MERL) and Ariel Shamirfrom The Interdisciplinary Center (IDC)/Mitsubishi Electric Research Laboratories (MERL).

  • Do you dare trust a machine…..

    The people over at 5VoltCore have put together a PD installation that really tests your courage and trust in machines. The installation sets up a feedback loop between computer, robot and the user. The user is right in assuming that the machine can fail, the machine can fail because the user assumes. Let me explain, […]
