Adafruit Founder Limor Fried interviews Dave Doherty on topics ranging from the death of the physical catalogue, to the joy of running an engineering company as an engineer yourself. Also discussed is Digi-Key's Maker.io, which is an invaluable service for makers to roadmap their very own designs, from prototype to delivery. Adafruit is proud to partner with Digi-key and introduce Maker.io to all our customers and fans. This kicks off Adafruit's video series Maker to Market, which will take you on the journey that was the creation of Circuit Playground, Adafruit's all-in-one board, and the perfect microcontroller for learning electronics. Check out Circuit Playground over at Maker.io now!

Arduino Simulator Puts You In Toy Car #ArduinoModay

Toy Story your way through the world — via ArduinoBlog

As part of their final project at EDN – Navàs, robotics students Rafart Jordi and Marc Thomas recently built an impressive Arduino simulator that captures video from a camera-equipped RC vehicle and displays it on a TV screen, making it feel as though you’re in the driver’s seat of a shrunken-down car.

Louis Vuitton uses Final Fantasy character as model in new ads #gaming #fashion
https://blog.adafruit.com/2016/06/26/louis-vuitton-uses-final-fantasy-character-as-model-in-new-ads-gaming-fashion/

Via Reason.com

It’s a case of art imitating life imitating art. Luxury fashion house Louis Vuitton’s latest celebrity model isn’t, strictly speaking, a real person: She’s a computer-generated video game character from the popular Final Fantasy series.

Inside the Mind of Steven Spielberg, Hollywood’s Big, Friendly Giant #SciFiSunday
https://blog.adafruit.com/2016/06/26/inside-the-mind-of-steven-spielberg-hollywoods-big-friendly-giant-scifisunday/

Great profile of acclaimed director Steven Spielberg from WIRED.

It was a movie about childhood that was too real for many children to watch. There were reports, in that summer of 1982, of kids becoming ill in the theater during the last scene, when E.T. lifts off and leaves Elliott behind. A psychologist named Richard Sloves looked into it and discovered that these children had fathers that, like Elliott’s, had recently left home after a divorce.

Arduino Steampunk Chromatic Clock #ArduinoMonday
https://blog.adafruit.com/2016/06/27/adafruit-steampunk-chromatic-clock-arduinomonday/

via Cool Arduino

The digits are expressed by colors and most correspond to the colors used in electronics to indicate the values except 0, which goes from black to weak white, so that it can see in the dark, and 8 passes from gray to cyan because gray is not possible.

Analyzing the typeset from Blade Runner #typography
https://blog.adafruit.com/2016/06/27/analyzing-the-typeset-from-blade-runner-typography/

If you haven’t checked out Typeset In The Future’s site, go now, it’s super fun to read. From their post on Blade Runner:

After studying Alien in intimate detail, it’s time to look at the typography and design of Ridley Scott’s other classic sci-fi movie, Blade Runner. Based on Philip K. Dick’s novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, Blade Runner cements Scott’s reputation for beautiful, gritty, tech noir science fiction.

(As with my previous articles, I should note that there are spoilers aplenty throughout the next 5,000 words. If you don’t want to know when Blade Runner’s sole appearance of Eurostile Bold Extended occurs, look away now.)

Blade Runner’s opening crawl is distinctly un-futuristic in its choice of font. It uses Goudy Old Style – designed by Frederic W. Goudy in 1915 – as part of a veritable typographic cornucopia:

Con Edison Testing Drones for Use in Steam System #drone #droneday
https://blog.adafruit.com/2016/06/27/con-edison-testing-drones-for-use-in-steam-system-drone-droneday/

From coned.com:

Con Edison is testing drones to carry inspection cameras inside of the towering boilers that produce steam for some of New York City’s most iconic buildings.

The company is testing the drone technology as a way to reduce the time and cost it takes to inspect the boilers, which are an integral part of the largest district steam system in the world. Con Edison provides steam – a green energy source – to more than 1,600 large customers, including the Empire State Building, Grand Central Terminal, the World Trade Center and other landmark buildings.

legs dont look like they have strands that mimic muscles which allows it to fall because the computer simply can not move the legs in time to prevent further decay - legs with muscle would have weight that could be used (a after effect) to restore the balance lost (a before effect) by slipping limbs; its a wonder the legs dont extend out like a baby sheep on the slipping side and collapse the legs on the non-slipping side once the tilt starts to go (imho falling though something is very human)
