Thanks for the heads-up! I'd seen his previous Bait Ball simulations (http://roberthodgin.com/bait-ball/) and the new stuff is great.

Okay, today's xkcd pushes way too many of my personal buttons.

Therefore, it gets its own blog post.

wait, you mean from your blog post?  well, the second one is stripped of background, so is that a trick question? haha.  the first color one is obvious to me (42) -- but i was assuming that was the case to everyone!  (and i cant see any number pattern in the b&w digits of his original btw)

Controlled caustics in the real world! These folks created a piece of glass that, when you shine a light through it, produces caustics that just happen to form a portrait of Alan Turing. Now that's what I call reverse engineering.

I've been wanting to start hanging out at the TechShop and need some excuses to get my feet wet. :)

Another tip: remember in the paper, they actually rendered a 3D version using Global Illumination to test the results.  You could do that too before you use the milling machine.

And for general fun, you don't have to do such detail as a portrait.  Just a pretty (controlled) pattern would be enough to get excited about. :)

I love the mission statement of the new School for Poetic Computation (http://sfpc.io/): "The goal of the school is to promote completely strange, impractical and magical work -- not the sort of things that are about building a portfolio for finding a job, but the sort of things that will surprise and delight people and make you think you don't want a job"

reminds me of why I taught myself how to program.  I wanted to make an art form that existed as a narrative written in code that was experienced only on a computer.  Then After Dark came out with flying toasters and I realized that no matter what I did - it would always be seen as a screen saver :(  <sounds of muted trumpets and canned laughter>

When you look through the Telestereoscope, you can actually see the moon set behind the hills.
