Road? Where we’re going, we don’t need roads. – Dr. Emmett Brown. For the third edition of Time Travel Tuesday, we’ll be looking at Christmas day here at Adafruit, across the DIY, open source and science/tech world!
What did you GIVE this year? & we publushed our Arduino R3 outline for Adafruit EAGLE library.
On Hack-a-day, a badge creator tool was posted.
On MAKE “Tinker, Tinker, Little Star”.
Ladyada & pt did a 2 hour ASK AN ENGINEER and they made a “MakerBot watch”.
On MAKE, “Sweet vacuum tube clock build”.
Ladyada & pt laser etch Joshua Topolsky’s (at the time editor in chief of Engadget, now The Verge) laptop.
On MAKE “Using Google App Engine as a personal CDN” by Jason (who now works at Google) and on Hack-a-day “Hackit: What did you get?”
We tried to turn off a lot of TVs.
On MAKE “HOW TO – HDR photography in Gimp or Photoshop”.
Ladyada publishes the wavebubble:
I jammed Santa’s GPS so he couldn’t find his way to your house – “In a high-population-density city, inhabitants must be prepared to defend their own personal space. Technologies that increase personal productivity are on the rise, even though they may intrude on others. The unavoidable reaction is to create technologies that counteract other people’s devices. Wave Bubble is a product that counters the all-too-familiar annoyance of loud ring tones and overt cell-phone conversations in public.“
Also covered on Hack-a-day & MAKE.
We also made a game of life kit(s) & open-source MP3 players.
pt was working on a chat bot at MAKE magazine.
..and experimenting with a VR rig.
On MAKE “DVD to iPod – Convert, the easy way (Mac)”.
pt publishes how-to articles on modding the iPod firmware.
There were some lasers too.
On Hack-a-day, free *your* music with jhymn
pt was in Japan with SONY & QRIO.
