I got the chance to check out this awesome cardboard armor at Maker Faire Bay Area, including these helmets that light up when you put them on. The only bummer is that they are kid-sized, so I couldn't fit one on my big adult head. : ) They are sold as kits or patterns. Check 'em out!

I just funded +Paul Spinrad's journalism project on Inkshares. Check it out. Messianic Judaism seems like an interesting topic to explore. If you think so too, show your support by helping fund the project!
 
I'm crowdfunding a journalism project via the new platform Inkshares about the Messianic Judaism movement-- Jews who believe in Jesus (but not "Jews for Jesus"), which now includes hundreds of congregations worldwide, mostly in the U.S. and Israel.  I think it's a super interesting story that has received scant attention in the U.S., although the Israeli press has covered it.

https://www.inkshares.com/projects/whither-messianic-judaism

I've already talked with some of this growing movement's leading voices, and would love to finish the story. If you want to be part of the adventure and get the inside scoop, please donate! The regular / basic level donation is just $3, so we're not talking a lot here, and anything you want to give would help.

Also, please let me know any suggestions you have for whom else I might speak to about this topic.

Thanks!

Arduino Binary Love Clock
 
Binary Love Clock

Addressable RGB LEDs + Arduino + heart-shaped box = a real-time clock and a beautiful ornament for my wonderful Valentine. It displays the time, in seconds, in binary, since we met… (of course, it’s slightly approximate — I forget the precise second we met, but I think I know to within about 30 minutes!)

Interesting. Molten aluminum poured into a fire ant hill creates a sculpture of the fire ant colony architecture.
