Thu, 07/09/2015 - 02:18 -- rprice

A barrel oven is a versatile and highly efficient wood-fired oven that’s relatively easy to build, and easy to use. It can be the seed for a small-scale baking enterprise or the heart of a community’s wood-fired cuisine. All kinds of food can be baked in the barrel oven, including bread, roasts, pizza, cookies, cakes, pies, casseroles, and stews.

Faces of Tech - Orlando Magazine - February 2015 - Orlando, FL

Mon, 02/16/2015 - 11:26 -- rprice

they are getting help, and it comes from within the community, including the new downtown Canvs shared workspace, designed to attract and nurture early startups like Salpeter’s. With the planned Creative Village project and a larger UCF satellite campus on the drawing board, government, educational institutions and leading businesses are taking a supporting role, with the stated goal of turning Orlando into one of the Southeast’s premier startup hubs. That suits Mark Salpeter just fine. “I really like Orlando,’’ he says.

Free Music Archive: Build A Mixing Bowl Reverb

Mon, 02/09/2015 - 17:32 -- rprice

The concept of a plate reverb is quite simple. An electromagnet, like the one found on a audio speaker, is directly or indirectly coupled to the center of a piece of sheet of metal. Audio from a sound source is fed into this electromagnet (voice coil) which will physically vibrate the piece of sheet metal (plate). These audio vibrations are echoed many times, echos which are in fact persistence of audio. The amount of persistence (reverberation) is determined by the physical characteristics of the plate.

ionosonde recordings: D.I.Y. plate reverb

Mon, 02/09/2015 - 17:32 -- rprice

Now that I had a working voice coil (driver) ready for mounting on the plate reverb unit, it is time to fabricate a coupling link that will directly connect the driver to the plate. But first, I need to do something with this mess I made while performing that gruesome surgery on our patient. A quick sweeping with my trusty broom and......wait a minute - broom - broom handle... Perfect! A broom handle is the right size for making a driver coupling link.

Art Hack Day | Packt

Mon, 12/01/2014 - 14:05 -- rprice

an event for hackers whose medium is art and artists whose medium is tech. A typical Art Hack Day event brings together 60 artist-hackers and hacker-artists to collaborate on new works in a hackathon-style sprint of 48 hours leading up to a public exhibition and party. The artworks often demonstrate the expressive power of new technology, radical collaboration in art or a critical look at how technology affects society. The technology used is typically open, and sharing source code online is encouraged.

Take A Trip Into an Enchanted Forest In Quebec | Motherboard

Tue, 11/25/2014 - 14:21 -- rprice

From the same arts and technology troupe that produced the Osheaga visuals and live effects, to the Super Bowl halftime show, comes the "Foresta Lumina": a 20-30 minute luminous pathway experience inside an actual forest north of Montreal. The forest mixes interactive characters and high tech installations with giant projectors, laser printed lights, and futuristic costume design. The forest is their canvas and their interactive space is made to pop with their next level tech.

ichard Horne (RichRap) is an Electronics Engineer, Product Designer, Salesman, and Problem Solver working in a wide range of industries and applications, across many platforms and technologies for the last 20 years. My interest and passion for 3D printing started in 2009 after visiting the RepRap project website and reading a series of blog posts by another highly dedicated developer, Nophead. RichRap started blogging, designing and developing with 3D printing shortly after.

Actively Building a Robot while learning math, science and engineering. Being on the front lines of technology education, and using that technology to learn the math,science and engineering which is so hard to pick up in a passive chalk talk. Being involved on a competitive robotics team. Whether it's VEX, USFIRST, MATE or LEGO, robotics competitions provide an academic benchmark with a sports like competition. Kids are really motivated to excel because they are involved in something that is real to them.

▶ Wearable neuroheadsets: on mind-controlling our environment - YouTube

Thu, 01/23/2014 - 11:14 -- rprice

Mind-controlled computing is a new field. So new, that in 2009, Emotiv Systems open-sourced their brainwave-reading headset to developers and researchers to help drive innovation. Musician Richard Warp responded to the challenge. Warp is a composer, married to a neuroscientist, who believes in creating music with your mind. Using a neuroheadset (his is an Emotiv EPOC, but there are plenty of brain-computer interfaces (BCI) on the market these days for under $100), he built a generative music system that responds to the brain signal.
