I wasn't aware at the time how extensive the efforts were by an ever increasing cabal to build these types of systems. My screen display was photoshopped, the ones below are real. Boids (Flocks, Herds, and Schools: a Distributed Behavioral Model) In 1986 I made a computer model of coordinated animal motion such as bird flocks and fish schools. It was based on three dimensional computational geometry of the sort normally used in computer animation or computer aided design. I called the generic simulated flocking creatures boids. The basic flocking model consists of three simple steering behaviors which describe how an individual boid maneuvers based on the positions and velocities its nearby flockmates:

How To Make The Super StratoVulcan Paper Airplane Fast, long range and versatile, the Super StratoVulcan is a simple but capable development of the StratoVulcan paper airplane. The Super StratoVulcan is designed to be able to better operate at higher angles than its predecessor, and has reconfigured leading edges like the comparable Turbo Vulcan and AeroVulcan. Being closely related to the StratoVulcan and being designed around the same time as the Turbo Vulcan and AeroVulcan, the Super StratoVulcan's development period was rather short due to its retention of most of its basis' configuration.

DIY - Brake Pad change (includes pics) WARNING: What follows is a basic HOW-TO guide, showing how to change the front and rear brake pads on a 120 series Prado. Just letting you know I am NOT a mechanic and won't be held responsible for any damage which may result from this procedure. I am just showing how I do it. If you don't believe you have the mechanical knowledge or confidence then I suggest you have the work carried out by a qualified mechanic or brake specialist.FRONT Brakes: Before starting, I removed the cap from the brake fluid reservoir, removed the filter / float and removed some brake fluid. Make sure you wipe any dirt and grime from the reservoir and lid BEFORE you open it. While changing the pads I leave the cap off but just place a clean rag over it to stop any dust or debris from falling in.

Let's Stop Focusing on Shiny Gadgets and Start Using Tech to Empower People Even though Red Burns was one of the most influential figures in the tech industry over the past 30 years — most famous for co-founding the groundbreaking Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP) at NYU, and in a sense, the beginnings of interaction design — it’s not uncommon for technophiles to have never heard her name. Two weeks ago, she passed away. But much more needs to be said about one of the smartest, gutsiest women I ever knew, and about what she thought about education, technology, design … and life. Red wasn’t particularly interested in IPOs or the latest tech fetish, even though she was always exceptionally proud of her students and their accomplishments.
