Ooma VOIP service provides a Do Not Disturb feature to it’s Premiere Subscribers. Unfortunately, the usefulness of this service is greatly hampered by an inability to schedule when Do Not Disturb is enabled. Instead, you have to manually dial a special code to enable (*78) and disable (*79) Do Not Disturb. It gets quite tiresome
In April 2015, Enomalies and the Frazier Arms Museum in Louisville, KY partnered up to create an interactive mapping exhibit as part of their Lewis and Clark Experience. The exhibit runs on a large touchscreen TV, and gives the users an opportunity to draw a map of the United States from memory, given only the
The Fraizer Museum of Loiusville came to us with a request for a touchscreen image viewer. The museum had a collection of rare color photographs from WWI, but no means to display them. I wrote a user interface (in Actionscript) that displays each of the images as a thumbnail. When displayed on a touchscreen enabled HD
IVE is the union of a Processing sketch with several “sensor boxes” controlled by an Arduino microcontroller.
As users interact with the buttons and ultrasonic sensors mounted to these boxes, the display of the Processing sketch projected on a wall changes. Users can interact with what type of objects are drawn on the screen, where the objects are located, object colors, object velocities, and more. The point of this installation is to encourage cooperation between users in creating a dynamic piece of art.
Developed and released in September of 2008, Whack-A-Snack is a children’s museum exhibit installed at the Explorium of Lexington in Lexington, KY. The Explorium approached us asking for an interactive exhibit that got kids moving and thinking about smart eating choices. Developed in partnership with Enomalies (Bill Gregory), Whack-A-Snack has been a tremendous hit with museum patrons.
A while back, I had the need to interpret an STL file (stereolithography), which is the general filetype of choice when dealing with rapid prototyping / 3D printing. My side business at the time had released a free 3D model viewer for the iPad, and we wanted to give estimates on prototyping costs whenever someone uploaded one of their own models. I couldn’t find any reasonable STL parsers that would work server-side, so I decided to make my own. The process of doing that, and the resulting files, are described below.
