update on my coffee table DLP projector hack.. The lamp finally blew out after over 5,000k hours! Grabbed a non-OEM replacement on eBay for only 35 bucks! Working great so far, we'll see how long this one will last, they are rated for a shorter lifespan than the JVC bulbs but couldn't beat the price :)

Picked up a couple of these the other day at Waterfront Rescue Mission for next to nothing... they're the heavy duty metal arcade Dance Dance Revolution stands! ..thinking extra contact sensors and EL-wire mods controlled by a cheap proto-board with usb output for universality of consoles/computer connection! :)

this was a very well-written April fools post on slashdot, brings up some interesting conversation though. How would we mold TCP protocol to a FTL communication paradigm? There are real (crazy albeit) theoretical physicists trying to send information into the past, the problem being in the past we don't know how to look for that information. Reminds me of a scifi script i wrote a few years back. http://tech.slashdot.org/story/13/04/02/0023208/how-to-communicate-faster-than-light

These folks are amazing, I love it. Their projects and kits are mostly inexpensively implemented and include a Mass Spectrometer, Near-Infrared Camera, Balloon & Kite Aerial Imaging, Air Quality Mapping with a Roomba, and Thermal Photography hacks. Check it :]

Here's a sneak peak of a work in progress. This is my coffee table loft projector/home entertainment system I'm building in my man-cave. I got my hands on a free broken 52" DLP projection TV- The image size is now 10 ft x 7 ft :) These units can be found all the time on craigslist/freecycle as so many people are upgrading to LCD.. the coffee table is also build from curbside-recycled furniture. I have it hooked up to a 512MB Raspi and a modded Xbox360 atm. Working on a custom glass piece to keep dust off of the lens assembly & cramming everything into the table while still allowing for proper airflow. When that is complete I am painting a screen with roadsign reflective white paint to cover the ceiling board :D

Actually, come to think of it. I only have a car and one would really need a truck to move that. :/
