So this morning a coworker found the coffee pots (both of them) had been left on all night and burnt the coffee into the bottom of the pot. He stuck a sticky note on the pot shaming the one's who did it. I created this little image to spread the word and maybe start a meme. Here's a .psd if you have a similar situation and need to make one:

I can't claim the idea. I found it here http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:329596 but I might try using this as a lost wax model for aluminum casting.

This with an +Arduino is all I want.
 
This is the Asus Chromebit. It's a bit like the Google Chromecast—but it does more.

Hehe. I'll say it again. The rikomagic series of PCs on a stick are still better and more flexible.

Such a beautiful machine. I noticed they used Thompson micro slide linear rails and I can attest although expensive they are awesome.

The Kraken, you may know it as an E3D all metal hotend with four outputs. Well here's another reason to like the name: http://krak3n3d.com/ I first saw this printer on +3ders.org and instantly thought of +Dan Royer 's deltabot design His V2 was very close to the outline of this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Rw5g66s6ic If they can work out the accuracy and I believe they can this will be a very fast and efficient delta based 3DPrinter. This also reminds me of the GUS Simpson printer by +Nicholas Seward  that never quite made it mainstream, I always thought it was beautiful to watch.  Keep an eye on this one. 
The Kraken 3D is a modular, user friendly plug and play desktop 3D printer /scanner, with unique look, and advanced features.

They'd probably be a lot more successful selling the nozzle with a kit to integrate it with existing reprap machines.  fewer parts, wider acceptance, lower cost to get started for everyone.

Introduction

Technology is my passion. I spent the last 10 years perfecting my skill as an IT/Developer/Hacker and it shows in the work that I do. From microcontrollers to UX, C++ to C#, and solder to product I have been able to utilize my skills in the enterprise world building and integrating systems that boggle the mind. I am known for my swiss-army knife like ability to switch between systems and languages without a hitch in production. I am truly a hacker and love what I do.

Most recently I have been writing a book about my exploits in hacking the Microsoft Xbox 360 sensor and am well known in several industries for my other hacks.
