#AirQualityEgg by #Sensemakers Update 4/12: You can now upgrade the Air Quality Egg (including the DIY versions) with sensors for O3 ($25), VOC's ($25), radiation ($60), and particulates ($40)! Add the cost directly to your pledge (we will confirm your order after the campaign ends). See HERE for more info! Where's the data? The Air Quality Egg is a sensor system designed to allow anyone to collect very high resolution readings of NO2 and CO concentrations outside of their home. The Air Quality Egg is developed by a community effort, born out of groups from the Internet of Things Meetups in NYC and Amsterdam. The product development conversation, as well as a fair bit of the philosophical arguments, happens in our Google Group. 1) Outdoor sensors: A small electronic sensing system plug into the wall and sits outside your home taking regular readings. 2) Egg base station: An Egg-shaped base station, which gives this project its name, receives the wirelessly transmitted data from the sensor box outside.

HDRI Handbook Overview The HDRI Handbook 2.0 is the most comprehensive guide to high dynamic range imaging (HDRI). HDR imaging takes photography to a whole new level. It opens the door to unprecedented creative freedom in digital post-processing by capturing everything from the darkest shadows to the brightest highlights. It represents a quantum leap in imaging technology, as revolutionary as the leap from black-and-white to color imaging. HDRI means truly lossless image editing, full exposure control, mastering any scene contrast without artificial lighting, and preserving all light from a scene so it can be digitally revisited anytime in the future. In 2007, The HDRI Handbook was the first book to present this revolutionary new field to a larger audience. Now The HDRI Handbook 2.0 redefines its own gold standard.

Telepresence Telepresence Session with Ghana, Africa and Newark, NJ A telepresence system in 2007 Telepresence refers to a set of technologies which allow a person to feel as if they were present, to give the appearance of being present, or to have an effect, via telerobotics, at a place other than their true location. A popular application is found in telepresence videoconferencing, the highest possible level of videotelephony. Telepresence via video deploys greater technical sophistication and improved fidelity of both sight and sound than in traditional videoconferencing. Technical advancements in mobile collaboration have also extended the capabilities of videoconferencing beyond the boardroom for use with hand-held mobile devices, enabling collaboration independent of location. History[edit] The Brother Assassin, written by Fred Saberhagen in 1969, introduced the complete concept for a telepresence master-slave humanoid system. An important research project in telepresence began in 1990.

wet electron The Secret Book of SecretsA short film created in my Green Screen Movie Class at Beam CenterThe kids wrote the story, created all the props, and acted in the filmNarrated by Harry MerrittThanks to Enki for the lights This was my second ‘make a movie’ class and was very different from the first. Mainly, the group was all boys, so naturally when given (almost) free reign to create a film, it was going to be an action movie. A lot of the ideas I liked in my previous class like having the students draw scenes and then be green screened into them, or creating the sound track with some Casio’s and effects pedals were nixed in favor of more explosions, and theme songs. While it took two months to edit, think it came out alright.

Kinect-powered Email 4 the disabled Make Projects Tech September 6, 2012 at 4:14 pm My mom has lived with aphasia ever since she suffered a serious stroke twelve years ago. In the meantime, there’s been a revolution in communication – powered by social media. Like a lot of people, I use the phone less. One of my areas of interest has been bridging the digital “keyboard gap” for people like my mom. The first step was coming up with a visual “dashboard” to help her compose simple messages. In the future, I plan to add other “boards” and “pages” later to allow for a greater variety of messaging, but maintaining a super simple interface for my mom. Of course, someone else has to launch the program for her, so we’re not quite there yet in terms of totally independent messaging.
