Blue electro-luminescent wire is my new favorite photography accessory.

Four Seasons

leave a comment »

I was worried I wouldn't understand what was happening, but they have a screen above the stage that translates what the performers are singing to make it easier to follow along.

Tonya and I went to the Four Season’s Centre to see a production of Mozart’s, The Magic Flute (an opera). It was my first visit to the building. It’s even more beautiful inside than from the outside.

Big Screen

with 3 comments

Don't worry...there are a number of us that are working on getting Kinect-based gesture control working.

Yue and Adam in front of the new screen that was just installed at the lab. The idea is we’ll be able to view and work on solid works drawings at life-size. What’s crazy is that each of the 80 tiles has 1080P resolution. But computers don’t have the horspower to be able to drive the full screen at full-res. Right now, the best we can do is half-res.

CEAL Simulator Pod Change

with one comment

This is a timelapse of Susan and Larry taking StairLab off the simulator platform and placing StreetLab in its place. Right now it takes about a day to complete a pod swap. Most of that time is spent undoing and redoing ~100 bolts by hand. The goal is to get the swap time down to half a day by replacing existing bolts with fewer larger easier to access fasteners.

Music by Moby –  Isolate (Mixhell Remix)

If you don’t already know what CEAL or these pods are for, see here for an explanation.
