Quite a fitting tribute.

After seeing some of +Atom Jaay's #tesla art, I decided that today would be a good day to share this 3D print. One of the first things I did when I got my new printer running smoothly was print a bust of Nikola Tesla, because who wouldn't want one.

Unfortunately, I can't share the design file because I bought it online. The mesh is extremely high quality, and the full design is a full figure statue, which I cropped to make this. It's a shame how difficult it is to find high quality Tesla stls online, though.

What with the #ingresswear craze going on, I thought that I would share this beauty. +Ingress: gear exchanges to trade for these will be made much easier with the addition of the new capsules.
 
+Ingress: a little story about my #Ingresswear.

About a year ago, I designed this glowing XMP based signaling device in what I can only describe as a frenzy of XM inspired genius. I received vital assistance from +Atom Jaay when I needed the enclosures 3D printed.

These agent accessories are perfect for making your intentions clear. You're here to neutralize resonators. Allies will flock to you and enemies will wander dazed in your wake. During night ops, the color changing allows for more advanced signaling techniques. They made their public debut art the #Boston #Cassandra XM anomaly. I've worked to distribute a few of them to key members of my faction since then.

Before I started playing Ingress, I wasn't much one for walking, and it was a real bother to walk more than a mile. Now my outlook is more like: "Hey, that appointment is only about a mile from the bus stop. And by taking a half mile detour, I can hit another 4 portals! Excellent!" This game is the ultimate fitness plan.

Artwork + Memes  - 
 
When my Enlightened comrade, +Atom Jaay , began posting about his Ingress creations, 3D printed objects based on icons with which we are all familiar, something began working in my brain. I saw his glowing XMP burster model and the floodgates truly opened. I envisioned the possibilities granted by combining my knowledge of electronics with the creativity coming from months of XM exposure as an Ingress agent. I was more successful than I could have imagined. The device resulting from my inspiration was simple in its design and effective in its function; exactly what an engineer wants to end up with. The linked video demonstrates the circuit. Intended to be enclosed in a plastic enclosure similar to those created by my comrade.

What truly astounds me is the way everything kept falling into place as I was designing it. Initially I thought I might need a small microcontroller and a lookup table to make the color change like that. But, almost as if the colors of gear at each level were designed with my task in mind, a pattern emerged. With this in mind, a design followed in mere hours. I was most pleased by what I believe to be a novel configuration for a potentiometer.

My next step was obvious. I intend to gather other XM inspired creators, from Resistance and Enlightened alike. They will share their creations and designs with each other and with the world, demonstrating that XM can work to the benefit of all.

+Ingress : I would also be interested in inviting one or two creative minds I know who are not aligned with Enlightened or Resistance yet, to join in this exchange of creations. Unfortunately, I don't have authorization to recruit them. Perhaps one or two recruitment codes could speed my progress. #ingressinvite

V_USB = 5V
V_LED ~= 1.3V
V_RESISTOR ~= 3.7V
R_RESISTOR > 470 ohms
I_LED < 10mA
Recommended I_LED ~= 20mA

Q.E.D. It's fine.  Your concern is valid, but I put 4 high brightness LEDs on it because I am planning on putting it in an enclosure which is translucent, and may not pass the light very well, so I chose to err on the side of brighter.

I'm really glad that this video took the stance it did with respect to the role of individuals in the innovation process. While Tesla has many qualities which make for some good storytelling, and his achievements are nothing short of remarkable, I think the best way this story can be told is not by ascribing to one genius more credit than he is truly due, but by highlighting the fact that every technical triumph is the result of hundreds or thousands of engineers working in all eras across history, usually in greater obscurity than Tesla ever faced.

I'm not sure if you are still giving out passcodes for #ingresswear , but I want to share this little creation of mine.  It times the 5 minute interval of the standard portal cool-down cycle.  As a visual indicator of the current point in the cycle, it lights up 16 LEDs arranged around the octagonal circuit board in sequence.  I really enjoy taking distinctive visual elements from Ingress and rendering them as electronic circuits.  I remember that this idea has been floating around the community for a while.  I'm not sure if anyone has made it before, but it definitely exists now.

I tried mediating to achieve #enlightenment before #cassandra, but the XM is singing out, calling us to glory. I will find no solace this day.

+Jonathan Magen I'm pretty sure that last bit was a non-sequitur. Not that "resist" is a conclusion which can logically follow any premise.
