Use Old Bottles to Make Chic Concrete Vases Got a Kombucha addition? Hooked on Perier? We’re right there with ya. But the next time you gulp your precious last sip, don’t be so fast to toss your bottle into the bin—be it glass or plastic, they make dynamite molds for decorative vases.
[C.A.V.A.] created a cigar humidor with a social life. A humidor stores cigars in a humidity controlled environment to maintain freshness, but this special humidor sends the humidity sensor value to ThingSpeak and alerts Twitter when you need to add water. The project uses a humidity sensor and an Arduino Ethernet to post the data to the ThingSpeak API. Mi Humidor de Cigarros conectado a Internet por medio de un Arduino.
Pop quiz: What does the top edge of say, your utility closet door look like? I’m betting that you’ve never seen it, even if you’ve lived in your home for awhile. And although there’s not a lot of room to hide stuff in there, well, if you’re like me, the stuff you want to hide is usually on the smaller side. Not many people think of the space inside the door as a hiding spot, but it’s right there in easy reaching distance when you need to get to it. Doortop Stash

eclecticc | by Nirav Patel After grabbing a couple of Microvision SHOWWX laser picoprojectors when they went up on Woot a few months back, I started looking for ways to use them. Microvision started out of a project at the University of Washington HITLab in 1994 to develop laser based virtual retinal displays. That is, a display that projects an image directly onto the user’s retina. This allows for a potentially very compact see through display that is only visible by the user. The system they developed reflected lasers off of a mechanical resonant scanner to deflect them vertically and horizontally, placing pixels at the right locations to form an image. The lasers were modulated to vary the brightness of the pixels.
The National Audiovisual Institute of Poland invited me and the artist collective panGenerator to make a new installation. We called it “Explosive Digital Data Storage”. You can see it (and try it out) at Kordegarda Gallery in Warsaw for the next two weeks. Below is a picture of the opening and soon, I’ll publish a documentation. Niklas Roy

Project Blog Priorites November 25th, 2012 So I’ve been tapering off on my projects recently, and i wanted to quickly post to explain that this trend will continue for the forseeable future. More important things have come up. I’m still checking messages and answering questions, but my pace is slower now.
