Microcontrolled madness

This is craziest thing I've seen in long time. Linus Åkesson (lht) made crazy demo running from a microcontroller based on the Propeller chip from Parallax. External I/O consists of stereo sound (at line level) and a VGA signal. 32 bit processors, 48k of ram. and 32k rom. The Propeller is used in many industries including manufacturing, process control, robotics, automotive and communications. I got two left hands and I suck with soldering iron, but I really admire folks who are into electronics. If you want to try Parallax out, you can get Parallax demo board and download the eeprom file of the demo and try it for your self.

Pixels are classic (filmed in Papervision3D)

When I saw Radiohead's "House of Cards" video I was truly amazed how pixels can look good in 2008. What does that video have in common with Papervision3D? Press play on player and read on...

In production of this video they haven't used any cameras, but data from 3D laser-enhanced scanners. The Making-of "House of Cards" video is pretty crazy, check it. If you wanna get freaky with pixels - Google Code is hosting the Data Visualization application and accompanying iGoogle gadget. Interactive Flash piece was made by Aaron Meyers (Torrent Raiders, Digg Swarm) and Aaron Koblin using Papervision 3D. It's pretty slick.

But all this is nothing compared to this baby. Benoit Beausejour from Turbulent built crazy demo using Papervision3D effects branch which transforms video stream to something similar and very very cool. Be sure to check it in full screen playing Kraftwerk’s "Little Computer People"! WOOHOO GO PV3D! :)
