Hololens piano roll teacher. Mentions needing extra queues because the field of view is so small. I wonder if it's less than 2 octaves.

Just realized (thanks +Rusty Ortkiese !) that Google Photos is auto-tagging / analyzing all the pictures I back up. Searched for kitten and the pic of the cat we fostered popped up. Never named or tagged this pic myself. Creepy + cool!

So wish I lived in UT! http://echoba.se/we-stepped-into-the-void-the-worlds-first-virtual-reality-theme-park/

" We saw a prototype vest with 10 haptic feedback speakers front and back that literally hit you in the chest when you are shot or attacked by an enemy in a game."

"Tim totally stepped over the digital alien that was non-existent in real life though. It was funny to see."
Jake and I were invited to check out the world's first virtual reality theme park, The Void, and I'm happy to report that it is truly amazing. We can't wait to go back.

Neat bitcoin technology application: "wisdom of the crowds" decentralized prediction market. Apparently when you average people's guesses about an outcome, and they have a stake in making that prediction right, the average is usually pretty good, whether it be for jelly beans in a jar or a lost submarine: http://wisdomofcrowds.blogspot.com/2009/12/introduction-part-v.html

I'm still a little foggy on why the decentralized part matters,... I guess it comes down to trust. For the same reason you don't want a government or bank holding the ledger in Bitcoin, you probably don't want a single entity controlling a prediction result or compensation--too much incentive to tweak the results for personal gain.

Not only that personal incentive to cheat, but as a single, centralized source, it is highly vulnerable to hacking or spying, by criminals, Gov, etc.

The intersection of human and machine... algorithms seeded with human taste + more fun to look at than a laptop :)

Low latency audio synthesis on beagle boards to create light saber using accelerometer, piezo, and variable delay lines. Neat! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ivjHWiHN1UM

Amazing look into the #htcvive  VR headset & controller development: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QLBxz7djQvc
A hardware engineer's dream project. Lots of hacking hard drives and hot gluing together pieces from other products to make prototypes. And they even included a USB port inside the headset so people can add their own additions. Who knew it was open!

New Course: Introduction to Bitcoin, Blockchain and Decentralized Technology
I'm very excited to announce the release of a new course on Bitcoin, blockchain and decentralized projects like Ethereum. The Bitcoin world is evolving at a breakneck pace, so I hope this 3.5 hour course will provide one of the fastest ways possible to get ...

Some highlights from the Guthman competition to create new intruments: a video analysis system that allows a handicap-bound child to create music, and a guy who adds pickups to everything from golf clubs to his own mouth to create music that's actually good (ie, not the usual noisy experimental soundscapes)

http://www.radiolab.org/story/darkode/ For this grandmother, figuring out how to pay with bitcoin was worse than the ransomware itself. It's a pretty funny story as much as a sad one. Speaks to the challenges of both usability and anonymity. #bitcoin
We shine a light into the dark ;corners of the internet to see the world from the perspective ;of both cyber crime victims and perpetrators.

Leased a Leaf from Rick Schwarz, negotiated the deal over email and everything was exactly as I expected. No surprises or attempts to tack on extra fees on pickup.
