Hand-Drawn Holograms

0 BookmarksLog in to bookmark

Seen on YouTube:

See Scratch-holograms can be made upon plastic CD/DVD cases using a couple of thumbtacks poked through a stick. Or get fancy and use a professional compass and black-painted polycarbonate. Or automate the process with a paperclip stuck into a motorized electric eraser, or a CNC mill with a drag-engraving tool.

0 BookmarksLog in to bookmark

commandN is one of the premier video podcasts in the world, not to mention one of the longest-running. In a recent episode, they featured a short documentary about a Hackfest in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Held at a Coworking space in Halifax called The Hub, a group of designers, programmers and marketers gathered to create small applications for entertainment, social connections, and creativity. The apps are then sold on the iTunes store, with all benefits going to charity.

The segment, from commandN episode 214 is called "Spotlight", and it starts about 5 minutes in to the video:

Miro Player 3 and Miro Video Converter for Mac and Windows

If you haven't tried the excellent Miro software for subscribing to and promoting your Video and Audio podcasts, it's totally worth it.

They incorporate their own podcast directory (one of the best) and their client can download via bittorrent to save publishers' bandwidth fees. The company that makes miro is non-profit, and the software is open source. They also work with a public radio company to publish their audio podcast directory, and they support the Open Media Project. Can it get any better?

Yes. It can.

What is Cow-orking?

BTW, there is no hyphen in the word "Coworking". Your spell-checker is wrong.

Saw this video on my Google Alerts. Looks very well produced, with some well-known folks in the Coworking community. Tell your friends.

Monome Video

0 BookmarksLog in to bookmark

Monome is a small hardware company based in the Catskills that makes controllers for electronic music performance and new media art. Their first product, the 40h, is an eight-by-eight grid of backlit buttons which connects to a computer using a USB cable and the Open Sound Control (OSC) protocol. Originally developed as an open ended performance interface for electronic music, its developers have said "The wonderful thing about this device is that it doesn't do anything really,"[1]. As a result, developers have begun to use the Monome as an interface for other types of software, from text displays to games.

The word "Monome" is also often used as a name for the various devices that Monome produces.

What is a monome? Monomes are fun to watch, but what is actually going on?
