Being a coder at heart, design has always been a bit daunting for me. I am capable of working with GIMP, modifying histograms, using paths, layers, channels,.. but, to be honest, producing original artwork is not my forte. So, I’m always on the lookout for some tricks. And today I’ve found something really pretty – […]

First, I wrote a number generator and loaded it into my Arduino (can you call it “wrote” if you talk about a 3-liner?) void setup() { Serial.begin(9600); } void loop() […]

Aww.. 3D point clouds.. in ten minutes.

Been playing with those awesome processing examples for a bit, combining them and stuff. They are georgeous and I love the smooth feeling.. however ou define that. Since I’ve been meaning to visualize 3d-data for one of my apps @ work, I wrote (well, copy-pasted, but it’s so easy to understand!) a quick app that […]
