Day 2 Overview

Posted by Robert Faludi on Friday, August 1st, 2008 - Link

Day 2 of 5 in 5 brought to life a periodic tote, tickets to a sunset, a year in pictures, balls of light. In an impromptu celebration of old-time computing we got earrings compatible with your PC, AsteriskFTP, and thank goodness there’s finally BASIC for Twitter. Clink your glasses for a laser photo trigger, trip […]

Location Scouting for Art Under the Bridge

Posted by Christian Cerrito on Thursday, July 31st, 2008 - Link

So, Iím a bit late in posting, and I have to apologize for that. Unfortunately, at around four in the morning last night, I realized that my second 5-in-5 project was getting completely out of hand, possibly better suited for a weeks worth of experimentation and building then a day. I may try and simplify […]

Posted by Christian Bovine on Thursday, July 31st, 2008 - Link

Dennis Crowley and I spent all day doing 5 different Olympic Events: 100m freestyle, 100m dash, 110m hurdles, long jump and the rings (in gymnastics) and compared ourselves to Olympic athletes.

Japanese Family Crests

Posted by Tim Szetela on Wednesday, July 30th, 2008 - Link

As I mentioned in my last post, I had gotten a lot of stuff on my trip to Japan. I particularly liked this small book I got that is filled with thousands of family crests from Japan. The crests are each really great highly-designed symbols. For a while I have wanted to animate these, to […]

Laser Activated

Posted by Vikram Tank on Wednesday, July 30th, 2008 - Link

Today for my 5 in 5 project I assembled a trigger for camera flashes that is activated by a laser and used it to take some photos of a piece of ice landing in water. I have wanted a device like this for a very long time. A laser trigger allows you to fire a […]

twbasic: BASIC for Twitter

Posted by Adam Parrish on Wednesday, July 30th, 2008 - Link

My day 2 project is called twbasic. It’s an implementation of classic, line-numbered, home computer-era BASIC that runs on top of Twitter. You can start using twbasic right now by twittering your program listing to @twbasic. Here’s how to get twenty rolls of a six-sided die: @twbasic 10 for i = 1 to val(ARG$) @twbasic […]

Dial (212) 796-0729 ext. 160 to access the Asterisk File Transfer Protocol Server! Today I created a prototype method for transferring files via an Asterisk VoIP PBX. The inspiration came from my early computing days using a an audio cassette recorder to store applications for my first personal computer, a TI-99/4a. Programs were stored on […]

PCompatible Earrings

Posted by Armanda Lewis on Wednesday, July 30th, 2008 - Link

Today I made the PCompatible Earrings, earrings made of physical computing (pcomp) parts. I wanted a short design exercise since I work today, so yesterday I made these sketches: Ultimately, though, I let the components themselves dictate the design. I will let you see which parts you can identify. Here is the finished result!

StopMotionCasting, equality in human machine pixel collaboration.

Posted by John Dimatos on Wednesday, July 30th, 2008 - Link

StopMotionCasting from john dimatos on Vimeo. A few months ago, I noticed that it was quite mesmerizing to flip through all my photos in Adobe Lightroom by holding down the right arrow and just letting it go crazy. I thought it would be fun for my second project to use that fascination as the jumping […]

Tickets to the Sunset

Posted by David Steele Overholt on Wednesday, July 30th, 2008 - Link

After living in beautiful San Diego, California for a period of time, you start to take ocean sunsets for granted. Because I’m only in town for another couple of weeks, I want to make sure I don’t do the same, but I also want to help my fellow San Diegan do the same. Today I’m […]
