Short links for March 14th, 2008
Some interesting things I bookmarked on del.icio.us on March 14th, 2008:
- The HAptic GUidance System – A device for "recording" and "playing back" drumstick motions involved in percussion performance. It is being used in a series of experiments designed to test the effect of physical guidance on motor learning.
HAGUS – the drumstick, gearing, and optical encoder.
- Five great auditory illusions – Daniel Levitin has written The Music Illusion, which looks at auditory illusions and how they can help us understand the workings of the human brain. New Scientist has compiled five of the most striking auditory illusions discovered so far.
- Photoshop Disasters – Image manipulations gone horribly wrong.
- 100 (Legal) Sources for Free Stock Images – You want to make sure you don’t end up doing something like this (from Photoshop Disasters mentioned above).
