Let's Make Robots!

Campus Party 2013 LMR division

Campus Party has been awesome meetup-events for LMR members, and we have often been given .. very good conditions, only we should not write about that in public, because it's a complex world of sponsors and participants and dealings.

Those who went can confirm that it is really the coolest thing to meet up and .. it cannot really be expplained, but it's really, really awesome, despite any possible trouble, it has been really, really awesome to meet each other!

Robots in space.. and no Windows!

Ha, I just read this article, and thought I'd share:

Apart from the fun no-more-windows-part, I think the robot part is quite interesting - some new challenges there, zero gravity.. Hmm .. hard to test at home :)

King of Nerds -and- God of Nerds

I am sorry if this is old news to you, but I only just now saw these fantastic images because I'm poking around over on our G+ pages. May I present you .. King, and God of Nerds: Andrew "Ignoblegnome" and Chris the Carpenter :D

 

 

That is awesomeness!

Hi guys,

Can I rent a supercomputer?

I am having hobby-fun with learning Processing (http://www.processing.org/)

I like how I can do millions of vector based calculations pr second. But I want more. I want much, much more. Millions of times more. I am having fun rendering particle systems / simulations. My poor computer is rendering day and night, but it's noway near enough.

I am running programs that save screendums as PNG, and then a second program (Processing tool) to gather them into movie files.
