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
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).

Short links for August 20th, 2007

Some interesting things I bookmarked on del.icio.us on August 20th, 2007:

  • How to Use Chopsticks in Seven Easy Steps – I usually give up after three bites and grab a fork instead.
  • Free Air Conditioning – Technically it should be called a heat exchanger, we lovingly call it the water cooler, but it has been providing us with free cold air for more than 20 years now so it definitely does work.
  • Arcade Game Manuals – A collection of 1,700 arcade manuals, schematics, and general information in PDF format
  • Magazine Illusions – Are you on the cover of that magazine?
