Beginner’s Guide to Augmented Reality Augmented Reality has been cropping up a lot lately, especially Flash-based AR. I will guide you through how to create some simple yet neat effects that you can put on your own website. Introduction: Augmented Reality Augmented Reality has been judged as one of 2010’s hottest trends. The concept behind it is pretty simple, over lay the physical world with cool graphics that appear to occupy the same space as you. Lots of companies have used it as a great promotional tool. Lego use it as a way to visualize what their products will look like when you’ve finished building them. Some freelancers use it as a very cool business card and promotional tool. In January of this year, I completed a project for university where I created a wearable augmented reality system. Check out the video on Youtube. I approached creating AR from a design point of view, knowing very little about coding in AS3. Introduction: flARToolkit Step 1: Getting to the Source Step 2: Play Time Step 3: There's Coding to Do

They lift dozens of marbles at a time and send them down an amazing track of twists and turns. At first glance I thought this creation was some sort of wooden gear clock. The only thing that gave it away was the fact there were no hands on the face, not to mention it was missing numbers. If you go to the project site (click on the image) you will find an array of chutes and barrels and other things for the balls to do on their way down. It inspires me to think about designing a clock that has a marble run aspect. I have seen some marble machines that are built to tell the time. I counted the Ball Bearings in the gears.

Styrofoam stands no chance against the Red Hot Nickel Ball If you haven’t been following the adventures of the Red Hot Nickel Ball (RHNB) then you have been missing out on one of the better things on the internet. The premise of the RHNB is very simple: a brave, blow torch-owning man heats up a nickel sphere until it’s — literally — red hot. He then gets the sphere and drops it on, through, and into different things. In its latest adventure the Red Hot Nickel Ball speeds through a piece of styrofoam and drops into a metal bowl filled with cold water. Pure nickel melts at 1455°C (2651°F), so we know the RHNB is pretty hot, but not quite in that range. The heat applied in the videos is enough to make the ball quite dangerous to be around — especially given the spherical shape — but not enough to deform it when it makes an impact. As for the greatest hits, here goes! I don’t tend to go for seasonal, holiday-themed content, but the RHNB going surprisingly slowly through a chocolate Easter bunny was incredible:

Lady Warrior Armor - Medieval Corset When I meet a lady, the first thing I ask myself is, "Could this lady best me in a feat of strength? Or, if she's really special, "Could this lady jump me in a dark alley and kick my ass to next Tuesday?" And when I meet a lady corseted in leather and stainless steel medieval armor etched with writhing snakes, the answer is always, "Yes." Armstreet's fantasy corset defines the word on so many levels. When ordering the corset, Armstreet requests chest, height, under-bust, neck, and waist measurements for custom fit.
