Porta photo album generator A no-nonsense, hassle-free photo album generator Porta turns an image directory into a neatly formatted web photo album. Besides being free its primary virtues are: It's fast, it's simple to use, it's lightweight, and it produces clean and uncluttered web pages that will load fast and look good in all modern browsers.Example album using HTML Example album using SimpleViewer Giambattista della Porta (1535-1615) was the first to add a convex lens to the camera obscura. This amplified its light sensitivity significantly and thus constituted a major step towards the cameras of today.
Autostitch AutoStitch works from unordered collections of images, automatically finding matches between images using the SIFT algorithm. It then robustly aligns all images and uses advanced blending algorithms to form seamless panoramas (see below). For more details, see our research papers. pySerial — pySerial v2.6 documentation Overview This module encapsulates the access for the serial port. It provides backends for Python running on Windows, Linux, BSD (possibly any POSIX compliant system), Jython and IronPython (.NET and Mono). The module named “serial” automatically selects the appropriate backend.
GitHub Codes Up Computer-Less 3-D Printer Software “Make Me” frees users from using dedicated computers with their 3-D printers. Photo: Courtesy GitHub GitHub, the popular and well-funded version-control company, is entering the 3-D printing market. They aren’t jumping into the world of hardware (not yet at least), but instead are automating tedious workflow issues, namely printing parts without leaving a laptop tethered to the 3-D printer for hours at a time. Their solution, called Make Me, allows users to push files to the MakerBot via HTTP and monitor the build process via webcam. It’s a small feature, but valuable for environments where multiple users are keen to make use of a shared resource.
python, pyserial windows xp [error 5] access denied Hi, I am new to python and arduino, but I am trying to create a serial connection with pyserial between my arduino and python. I have been unable to get python to connect to my com port. attempting to run the following code: Best of 2012: 3D Printed Objects Two thousand and twelve will probably be remembered as the year 3D printing broke into the mainstream. While 3D printers don’t yet compete with toasters or DVD players in the home, the dam on the consumer market has been breached as the number of lower priced, easy-to-use models–and those who use them–grows. Part of this trend surely comes from the ever-expanding catalog of 3D printed objects, from the useful to the fanciful. Printing chess pieces and busts of Stephen Colbert is nice, but the range of what people create with their printers grows by the day and in turn inspires others to model and print ever more striking/utilitarian/beautiful/ridiculous/amazing objects. What follows is a round-up of some of the more compelling items that came across our desks in 2012. As I look at the list it strikes me that it represents a moment in time.
