Light Painting Photo and Video by @kpimmel

0 BookmarksLog in to bookmark

I came across a video made by using long-exposure photographs of blinking lights on a turntable, driven by an Arduino controller. The results are visually stunning. I don't know how long it takes Kim Pimmel to make just a few seconds of video, but if it's anything like normal stop motion - and normal computer graphics - now compounded by trying to get the lights and motors do do what you want them to, I'll say that this is a hobby for the patient man.

Open Source Hardware - Makerbot, Arduino

0 BookmarksLog in to bookmark

If you pay attention to hardware at all, you'll have seen people building interesting tools for fun or profit with openly designed, hackable devices such as Makerbot and Arduino.

We also see lots of popular media featuring open hardware, like this episode of WebNation from the Canadian Discovery Channel, filmed at a hackerspace in Toronto.

Processing Running on iPhone

0 BookmarksLog in to bookmark

@JohnRife was posting on Twitter today about trying to get Processing running on his iPhone. That one message inspired me to make some posts and get some things going on this group.

Via Create Digital Motion

I didn't think you could run Processing on an iPhone, since it is based on Java, but it looks like John Resig, a true Guru of JavaScript if ever there was one, has come up with a solution to get processing code to run in a web browser without any plugins. I added a bunch of bookmarks about Processing.js to a brand-new Processing group on Ma.gnolia, which is a public feed which anyone can contribute to. New links in that group will appear on the right sidebar of the graphics hackers group page of FloridaCreatives.com. The group itself has 15 registered members... anybody else excited by this?

Via the Processing website:

Processing is an open source programming language and environment for people who want to program images, animation, and interactions. It is used by students, artists, designers, researchers, and hobbyists for learning, prototyping, and production. It is created to teach fundamentals of computer programming within a visual context and to serve as a software sketchbook and professional production tool. Processing is an alternative to proprietary software tools in the same domain.

Processing is free to download and available for GNU/Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows.
