Interesting things this week: the blind shall read, turntables driven by Arduino, portraits printed from blood.

Above: Ted Lawson’s computer printed self portrait with his own blood. Hopefully this was over multiple sessions.

A ring lets blind people read non-Braille books
Interesting idea - but it begins to break down if you can’t tell where the next line begins. Wouldn’t it be easier to photograph the whole page, with, say wearable glasses and then have it all spoken at once?

Arduino Turntables

It reminds me a little of this Mannheim interactive:

Tilt Brush; a virtual reality tool that allows you to paint in 3D

More cool ideas coming out to the Tangible Media Group inside MIT Media Lab. THAW, an interaction system that allows hand held devices and large displays to work together. Ok, it’s not that new of an idea but the implementation is pretty nice and gives an idea of upcoming intersections between different device types.

Storehouse
A new storytelling platform, it looks pretty good

Mount St Helen’s Flora.

Saint Helen’s Lake is nestled in the rocky ridges around Coldwater Peak. The 12 mile out and back hike leaves from the Johnson Ridge observatory, winds past Harry’s Ridge and then switchbacks up to the the Coldwater Ridge-line. The views are fantastic all the way through. For a more detailed trail guide, check out the North West Hiker site.

  and is a relatively strenuous at times.

Still standing.

Spirit Lake, Mt St. Helens. The haze is from nearby forest fires. Those trees are from the 1980 eruption.

At 8:32 Sunday morning, May 18, 1980, Mount St. Helens erupted and blew down or scorched 230 square miles of forest - scenes from the mountain all this week.
