АНИМИРОВАННЫЙ ГИФ MASHUP (Animated Gif Mashup) is the result of spending one afternoon in a loft in St. Petersburg with a group of people listening to rap music and surfing Russian websites for animated gifs. The event was hosted by International Art-Forum St. Petersburg and created using Animated Gif Mashup (source code available here). Documentation of the screening is here (worth it for the vodka chug if nothing else).

Thanks to International Art-Forum St. Petersburg (Grafffest), CEC ArtsLink, the US Consulate in St. Petersburg and all the participants.

This is an awesome project by Matt Richardson, called the Enough Already:

I don’t know about you, but I’m a little sick of hearing about the same people on TV over and over again. I came up with this Arduino-based solution to mute my TV so that I don’t have to hear about Donald Trump’s feud with whomever or Charlie Sheen’s most recent rant. Using the Video Experimenter Shield, the Arduino is able to decode the closed captioning transcription track, which is transmitted along with the NTSC picture signal. The incoming text is processed for a set of keywords such as “KARDASHIAN” or “SNOOKI” and sends my television’s IR remote control mute command, muting the TV for 30 seconds and then unmuting it (as long as a keyword isn’t mentioned again).

This post is a brief alert to announce the final (updated, v.1.1) release of the F.A.T. Lab’s QR_STENCILER software. This tool is a free, fully-automated utility that converts QR codes into vector-based stencil patterns suitable for laser-cutting. The QR_STENCILER is described in full detail in our 19 July blog post.

The newest version of the QR_STENCILER adds the following functionality:

  • Options allowing both black-on-white and white-on-black (“reverse”) stenciling;
  • A graphical user interface with checkboxes and sliders from the ControlP5 library;
  • Rounded corner options (including both circular arcs and Bezier curves);
  • Precompiled executables for Mac OSX, Windows and Linux;
  • Vector path simplification for improved lasercutting.

Moreover, the QR_STENCILER can now be downloaded from the following 3 locations:

Thank you for your interest in this project, and happy stenciling.
