The Infinite Home Tool is quite a poetic object, serving a double function of a suitcase and a furniture piece. Living out of a suitcase gets an entirely new meaning with this piece, as the suitcase is more like a instant shelving unit, whereever you put it down.

Gear  |  Projects
Google has just released a video which shows off the UI for its Glass project.
"Want to see how Glass actually feels? It's surprisingly simple. Say "take a picture" to take a picture. Record what you see, hands free. Even share what you see, live." On-lens directions, voice-controlled messages, web searches, notifications, and even on-the-fly translation. The glass looks kinda fun! Watch the video.
Now, the glasses will be available "creative individuals" via its #ifihadglass page, for same princely sum of $1,500. Google claims to "be looking for bold, creative individuals who want to join us and be a part of shaping the future of Glass...We’re still in the early stages, and while we can’t promise everything will be perfect" [ Google Glass ]

Computer Board Table

Array
Gear  |  Projects
Built by David Maloney using boards and drives from old Intergraph 6000 series machines made in the late 80s early 90s.
"For years I've been throwing old computer boards into a box in the garage to someday recycle them into some sort of project. It finally popped in my head to create a table with them using some of the black walnut from a tree we cut down a few years ago and had milled in the yard with a portable mill.
It's basically two tables. One internal table to screw the boards to and another set of wood frames with glass that slide on top of the board table. It's basically a wood diorama. It will be very easy to swap out the computer boards with something else once we get tired of the look of the boards."

BeetBox uses real beets to make music

Array
Gear  |  Projects


BeetBox is a simple instrument that allows users to play drum beats by touching actual beets. It is powered by a Raspberry Pi with a capacitive touch sensor and an audio amplifier in a handmade wooden enclosure.
Here's how it works:
    Inside the cabinet is a Raspberry Pi Model B computer hooked up to an MPR121 capacitive touch sensor. A Python script detects any touches on the beets, and plays drum samples using the pygame gaming module system. The sounds produced are fed to an LM386-based amp and on to a speaker located behind the holes in the wood.
