I made a quick little hack where I modified the original Pac-Man and Ms. Pac-Man ROMs to switch them to Pac-Woman and Mr. Pac-Woman, complete with a little top-hat and bowtie to let you know that Mr. Pac-Woman is male. Enjoy!

It's been a long time since I've posted on Goole+, but it's also been a long time since I've had a finished project. I started making these shortly before my son was born, and I've finally had time to complete them just in time for his first birthday.
Shortly before my son was born I decided to make a set of alphabet blocks decorated with things that his mother and I were looking forward to sharing with him. I started work, and then he was born. Now, coming up on his first birthday, I've finally finished. (Apparently, shop time is hard to ...

This little project has been a long time coming, but I've finally got it written up: I used plastic 3D prints to make molds, which were in turn used to do lost-wax casting in sterling silver.
I've made another round of digital-to-silver jewellery: a pair of Super Mario Bros. cufflinks and a pendant for my crowbar-loving wife. For my last jewellery project I had Shapeways manufacture cu...

I understand, because jewellery is all about utility.

Scooby-Doo was my favourite cartoon growing up. I think it'd be fair to say I was obsessed with it. Thanks to this article, I can now be retroactively justified in that obsession.

The key points: in Scooby-Doo, that bad guys aren't monsters, they're liars. Liars who prey on people's superstitions. Adult liars, who are ultimately exposed by clever children (and a dog) who don't fight them, but rather expose them as frauds using their intelligence and the powers of reason.

Circuit boards for the Royal Canadian Chiptunes Orchestra have arrived! Assuming they work (fingers crossed!) we'll be handing these out for the audience to participate in the show.

Nuit Blanche, TIFF Lightbox. Come!

My latest project (and first commercial product) is the Pianocade, a synthesizer that sounds (and feels!) like vintage arcade games. Come hear how it works, play with it, eat tasty food, and maybe even preorder one, this coming Wednesday the 15th!

Donating blood! You should too. It's the easiest way to save a life. If you go every 8 weeks, it amortizes to less than 30 seconds a day of your time.

(I know it might seem like this is all I ever talk about on Google+, but, frankly, it's one of the only things I do regularly that I think is worth telling everyone about.)

Absolutely! It's like voting. If you can, gotta do it.

Last weekend, I had the pleasure of participating in Nuit Blanche as a co-curator of the Chiptunes concert at TIFF Bell Lightbox. My main contribution was designing and building these simple noisemaker circuits to hand out to the audience. I was surprised at how well they went over!

My thanks to my co-curators Nick Pagee, +Kate Dickson , and +Shaun Hatton , and all the bands!

Donating blood. When was the last time you gave? There's no easier way to save a life!

I'm a taker of blood, not a giver. So, THANK YOU for giving!
