Short links for August 12th, 2007

Some interesting things I bookmarked on del.icio.us on August 12th, 2007:

  • Miniot – Natural protection for your iPhone. Carved from a single piece of the finest woods, with your monogram, logo or personal message engraved.
  • Sounds from Mountain Park – These are MP3 files that were digitized from Mountain Park’s old 8-track master tapes. The sound quality is consistent with 8-track tapes recorded in the 1970s.
  • Prism Collection – If you didn’t splurge on (oh no we’re gonna say it) an iPhone yet, Nokia’s new 7500 and 7900 Prism cell phones are surely worth some consideration.
  • Fly Me to the Moon: Space Hotel Sees 2012 Opening – “Galactic Suite,” the first hotel planned in space, expects to open for business in 2012 and would allow guests to travel around the world in 80 minutes.
  • Album Speech – Collection of Speak & Spell type machines
  • The Atlas Mech Case Mod – Congratulations to Don Soules from Michigan for crafting the “Atlas” mech PC case mod.
  • Transform an old laptop into a MP3 player – These instructions show how Tony Pascalon transformed an old laptop with a broken screen (white strips on the screen) into a design MP3 player.

Nerd Watch Museum

Related: , , , , , , Posted in random posts on Aug 01, 2007 - comment 1 comment

The Nerd Watch Museum has hundreds of nerdy watch models.

Since your hosts are of the LCD generation, rather than LED, liquid crystal display models have been the focus of our collecting. Many LCD timepieces played an important role in the evolution of digital wristwear, and we are striving to present as many as possible in our virtual museum.

Nerd Watch Museum

I’ve been watch-less for about 7 years now. My last watch was a Fossil pocket watch my wife (to be at the time) got me for my birthday, but I have to admit I owned (and wore) a bunch of these geeky nerd watches in my teens as well.

I can’t remember the exact models but they resemble the Casio AE-11, Casio CA-951 and a slim girly-type watch which I couldn’t find in the Nerd Watch Museum.

Gamelan Kyahi Paridjata

The Museum Nusantara in Delft, the Netherlands, displays a more than 100 years old Javanese gamelan, Kyahi Paridjata.

Geert Jan van Oldenborgh and Paul van der Put (1st image of Performers) have made samples of most instruments using a large-membrane condensator microphone and CD recorder. Specifically, the sarons barung, demung and panerus (peking), slentem, bonang barung and panerus, kenongs, ketuk & kempyang, kempuls and gongs.

You can find the full resolution samples of gamelan Kyai Parijata here (16-bit 44.1kHz mono samples).

Visit the website for more information and links to download the samples (and alternate samples, mp3 and ogg versions).

LEGO Mosaic of Van Gogh’s Starry Night

Van Gogh's Starry Night in LEGO

From Buxley’s LEGO page:

In the Spring of 2001, I created a large mosaic of one of my favorite paintings, Van Gogh’s Starry Night. The mosaic is made completely out of LEGO bricks and measures 45″ (144 studs) wide by 36″ (116 studs) tall. It took several months and approximately ten thousand bricks to complete.

LEGO rocks! If I ever become a parent I will no doubt expand my old collection.

Also check the original painting at The Museum of Modern Art’s Starry Night web page and David Brooks’ excellent Vincent van Gogh Gallery if you’re interested in Van Gogh’s work.
