Lately I’ve been getting into Maxscript, a way of generating 3D objects and animations by scripting. It allows 3D artists to create complex procedural animations without having to create each object and animation manually…
Picked up one of these IC test clips on eBay for a few quid. It makes a spectacularly convenient programming clip.
[Update: 3D render of the board! Woo]
I’ve been putting LED lights up around the house, driven by solar panels. Free light. Yummy. To save precious power, and because they look cool, I like the lights to be automatic – fade up automatically when you enter a room, fade out when it senses you’ve gone. It’s a simple thing to build a circuit to control it all, but it gets a bit tedious building the same circuit over and over again, so I’m getting some PCBs made up.
Animation and music by me (sorry, the music’s a bit repetitive but it was better than the library alternatives…)
Animation etc by me – music by Jon Cotton at Poseidon
Getting a bit more dexterous, these robots…
