Hackaday's soup. If you haven’t heard of it yet, the [Raspberry Pi] is all the rage on [HAD] these days, so why not a round up of some of the excellent cases available? [Nhslzt] wrote in to tell us about his laser cut Bramble Pi finger jointed case. These are available for only 12 Euros, or roughly $14.95 in the US. Sure, the exchange rate may not be in America’s favor these days, but it’s cheaper than a trip to Dresden, Germany where some of the profits from this are to go towards setting up a makerspace there! If you’re feeling more into the additive 3D printing DIY process, why not just download one and make it on your printer?

[Thingiverse] has an excellent selection of cases many featuring, as you may have guessed, a picture of a Raspberry on the top! Finally for something more colorful (see the pic after the break), you can’t get much better than the [Pibow]. Filed under: Rasberry pi. AA FILM CLUB. AA Cinema, London From the naive, childlike humour of Wes Anderson (Rushmore), we follow on to Charlie Chaplin’s slapstick comedic representation of Hitler (The Great Dictator) and don’t forget the touching personal journey of a music teacher in search of his childhood (The Chorus), a girl’s journey into a mythical world (Spirited Away), a memoir of Kurosawa’s wildest dreams (Dreams), a paranoid mathematician in search for a key number that will unlock the universal patterns of nature (Pi), and finally the story of an obsessed surgeon haunted by past tragedies (The Skin I Live In).

At the beginning of the academic year, a group of students sat down to discuss a range of films that could be shown in this year’s Film Club. The aim was to create a spectrum of films that somehow linked one film to the next, not by its genre, but by its narrative, a character within the film, or a specific scene.

I’ve decided to do some exercises in Rhino with Python to help myself understand them better. This weekend’s project was to fiddle with geometry/ray intersection. I went down two paths: 1.

Generate surface points, intersection test, discard non first-order hits. 2. Generate a random surface point, intersection test, keep if first order hit. I liked the first because I can control point spacing easily. The second method is probably as wasteful as the first, but seems like it would be easier to multithread if needed. You can walk through the images above to see the sampling passes. Note I am operating on the NURBS geometry, not the render mesh, which may be cool if I ever produce an image. Optimizations may include: -Culling of brep faces not facing the source in order not to waste time generating random points we know will not be direct. -Adding a probability function to the random point decision based on object surface area. Edit- 5.1.2. Surface | Quadralectic Architecture. Le Corbusier put the surface in second place of his three appeals to the architects (‘Trois rappels a messieurs les architectes’).

It is not as basic as the volume, but it is – as a matter of speaking – the face of a volume. An external appearance (of a building) consists in most cases of walls, punctured with windows and doors, etc. The windows can be regarded as ‘holes’, which often tend to destroy the form. They can be blamed (as accusateurs) to disturb the delicate balance between the original volume and its surface. To minimize its effects the treatment of the surface has to follow the same (division) lines and geometrical solutions as with the volumes.

This view of Le Corbusier ends at, or at least has great sympathy for, the checkered pattern (le damier ou grille) so familiar in American factories.

Raspberry pie is one of my favourite desserts and Raspberry Pi is my new favourite tech device.

Let me tell you a story about the amazing things people are doing with this kit, including those who took part in our Raspberry Pi workshop here at the V&A these past three weeks. © Victoria and Albert Museum, London The Digital Learning team, where I work, tries to bring digital making and art together. We offer opportunities for members of the public to learn digital design skills. When we heard that Raspberry Pi had hired an artist in residence, Rachel Rayns, we knew it would be a perfect fit. So we asked Rachel to come to the museum and teach a workshop combining art making practices and these cool tech devices. What is Raspberry Pi???

Raspberry Pi is actually not all that new but it has been slowly growing, gaining steam for the past few years. So that’s how it began, but still what exactly is it?

Because some other search engines (Google, etc.) index parts of Flickr Hive Mind, you may have been led here from one of them. Welcome to Flickr Hive Mind, almost certainly the best search engine for photography on the web.

Battelle Number(s): 12398-E, 13664-B Patent(s) Pending Available for licensing in some fields Summary A novel thermoelectric generator (TEG) design by PNNL allows the conversion of ambient thermal energy into electric power for a variety of low-power uses.

These miniature TEGs are able to power wireless sensors and their associated radio frequency transmitters used in a wide range of remote monitoring applications including building energy management, automotive component controls, agricultural monitoring, security surveillance, and wildlife management. The Thermoelectric Ambient Energy Harvester uses an assembly of ultra-thin thermocouples in a unique configuration that can exploit small (>2°C) temperature differences occurring naturally in the environment of the application (i.e. ground to air, water to air, or skin to air interfaces). The TEG is constructed from reliable and stable components that offer maintenance-free, continuous power for the lifetime of the application. Advantages.
