Creating Makerspaces in Schools Two weekends ago, I attended EdCamp NYC at The School at Columbia, an independent school on Manhattan's Upper West Side. One of the things I love about attending edcamps is that the day is always unpredictable because you don't know what will be discussed or who will be leading conversations until that morning. What ensued was an inspiring day focused on tinkering, exploration and innovation. A Day of Play and Exploration The day began with a discussion led by Don Buckley, The School's Director of Technology and Innovation, focused on design thinking in schools. Buckley used projects completed at The School to illustrate the various stages of design thinking, which include defining a problem, researching and creating a solution and a prototype, and implementing the solution.

OUYA: A New Kind of Video Game Console by OUYA We just added game streaming through OnLive! Final Fantasy will be on OUYA...and we have an exclusive game!

We are focused on delivering for you, first come first served. We can only promise OUYA by March to our Kickstarter backers. 3D computer graphics 3D computer graphics (in contrast to 2D computer graphics) are graphics that use a three-dimensional representation of geometric data (often Cartesian) that is stored in the computer for the purposes of performing calculations and rendering 2D images. Such images may be stored for viewing later or displayed in real-time. 3D computer graphics rely on many of the same algorithms as 2D computer vector graphics in the wire-frame model and 2D computer raster graphics in the final rendered display. In computer graphics software, the distinction between 2D and 3D is occasionally blurred; 2D applications may use 3D techniques to achieve effects such as lighting, and 3D may use 2D rendering techniques.

Hands on: Project Morpheus review Sony unveiled Project Morpheus at GDC 2014 introducing us to the first real virtual reality competitor to the Oculus Rift. GDC 2015 saw the latest announcement revealing the newest evolution of Morpheus. Even better, barring any complications, we'll be able to own one in the first half of 2016. Complete with a larger 5.7-inch OLED screen with 1920 x RGB x 1080 resolution. The field of view has been stretched to 100 degrees, and Project Morpheus now supports an impressive 120fps output (a new SDK will let 60fps images output at 120fps, too).

Z code Z Code (like Q Code and X Code) is a set of codes used in CW, TTY and RTTY radio communication. Actually, there are different sets of Z-codes: one originally developed by Cable & Wireless Ltd., for commercial communications in the early days of wire and radio communications, another one independently developed by NATO forces later for military needs and use. The NATO Z Code is still in use today, and is published in the unclassified document ACP-131. There are other set of codes internally used by Russia's military and other operating agencies. The old C&W Z Codes are not widely used today. AHS Makerspace (We are located in Brisbane, Australia, so have some preference for buying nearer home.

Nowhere to hide: Advertisers can now stalk you across multiple devices Advertisers want to compile as much information about you as possible. Tracking where you go, what you click, and how you search is literally their business. They use that data to target ads directly to you, and feed relevant data to their partners. With the increasing use of tablets and smartphones in daily life, advertisers have been frustrated by a limited ability to correlate traffic from multiple devices to a single person. Well, there is some good news for advertisers, but bad news for privacy advocates. A company by the name of Drawbridge has developed a system that will analyze known data from devices surfing from the same location, and supposedly pick out which devices belong to which user.

PlayStation's legacy is a sense of style Within the febrile swamp of gaming history, just about every anniversary is met with droning songs of nostalgia, insectoid paeans to the past. But the joyful choirs that have met this week's celebration of the PlayStation's 20th birthday are merited. The launch of the PlayStation in December 1994 was understood at the time as a matter of deep significance to the evolution of gaming, and the passing decades have added full gravity to the occasion. Q code The Q code is a standardized collection of three-letter message encodings, also known as a brevity code, all of which start with the letter "Q", initially developed for commercial radiotelegraph communication, and later adopted by other radio services, especially amateur radio. Although Q codes were created when radio used Morse code exclusively, they continued to be employed after the introduction of voice transmissions. To avoid confusion, transmitter call signs are restricted; while an embedded three-letter Q sequence may occur (for instance when requested by an amateur radio station dedicated to low-power operation), no country is ever issued an ITU prefix starting with "Q". The codes in the range QAA–QNZ are reserved for aeronautical use; QOA–QQZ for maritime use and QRA–QUZ for all services. Early developments[edit] The following table reviews a sample of the all-services Q codes adopted by the 1912 Convention:
