Eyebeam OpenLab

datePosted on 19:08, July 17th, 2007 by Many Ayromlou

Stumbled across this earlier today and did not get a chance to make a note of it. From the overview portion of the page:

“The Eyebeam OpenLab is a home for artists, engineers and hackers pioneering open source creativity. The first initiative of its kind, the lab is focused entirely on incubating experimental technologies and media that directly enrich the public domain.”

Sounds like my kinda place. Now you might be asking why it’s mentioned here…..well it’s N.E.R.D. content and since I’m working with a group of people at my Uni on a very similar Lab, atleast in concept, I thought it deserved a mention.

Their Facilities section describes the environment as:

“The OpenLab at Eyebeam includes a mezzanine with an extended whiteboard and projector for informal meetings; a Lab space for electronics production, software and hardware hacking and rapid prototyping with technologies such as a laser cutter and 3D printer; the Prototyping Gallery, a semi-public space adjacent to the lab allowing for ad-hoc installations and project demos where the public can view the latest developments and artists and engineers can receive feedback on prototypes; and raw studio space where artists in residence create projects and access all of the opportunities and expertise within the OpenLab, Production and Education Studios.”

Sounds like a very cool place to Hack/Create/Invent. BTW, some of their earlier projects include — for those who remember — Wifi Liberator and Laser Tag/Mobile Broadcast Unit.

Wow, very cool page that contains basically every graphics chipset specs known to man. Definetly worth bookmarking and visiting when you just have to find that chipset detail you’re looking for. Nice work :-). If you browse to the top level you’ll find even more detailed tables of everything from processor charts to socket charts to chipset charts……

Yeah, I like history, and I think you can learn a thing or two from it. In this case we’re talking about google (and I guess all search engines before and after). Just have a look at this ad for the “Answer Machine” from 1964. Published in Childcraft Vol. 6: How things change by Field Enterprises Educational Corporation. Are you having a “Wow, who would have predicted that” moment…?

How does the mouse pointer work…

Yeah, you heard right, I’m gonna show you how the mouse pointer on your computer really works. To do this we have to zoom in a portion of the screen. When you move to the next page, move the mouse to the centre of your screen and have a look. Also try clicking your mouse button. Now you know the secret…You are a true NERD :-)
