Just brilliant. Artificial life as art.

Starting with a recording of raindrops hitting the skylight in his old apartment, this track titled Order from Chaos from London-based artist Max Cooper's newest album Emergence is the culmination of three years work merging his interests in science, music and visual arts. French visual effects

Turns out that wave packets behave a bit like jelly (jello) thrown at a wall. Sbloop!

The Wallis Sieve is a variant on the Sierpiński Carpet. It has the remarkable property that the remaining area (in blue) is equal to the unit circle, shown in green.

Blog post about it by +Ed Pegg:

We're hosting a workshop to learn about the work of John Wallis. If you're in Cambridge, UK on Sunday 27th November then come along:

+Evelyn Lamb's attempts to find a visual explanation for why the Wallis Sieve gives the area of a circle are intriguing. +Ed Pegg mentions the connection to Farey sequences and has a picture of Ford circles. I want to believe that somehow we can marshal the square holes to make a pattern like Ford circles and thus obtain a circle in the limit.

So having worked on part of the HoloLens project previously (without knowing it until later!), I am now excited to say that I have joined the HoloLens team officially.
 
So that's what I've been working on! This actually looks fun. Loving the Minecraft bits.

Have you seen the short film Tango?

That took him seven months to make. Using a Kinect2 sensor makes it easy!

Note the 4-fold rotational symmetry in his labelling of the joints. He did this to reduce the computation needed to decide if the structure was stable. This was some of the first work in finite element analysis.

Really nice food, and interesting enough to give you something to talk about. I had the crispy lamb belly which was superb, just right for a lunch time.
