BionicKangaroo

Robotic recreation of the Kangaroo form put together by Festo to demonstrate energy-efficient movement (this was initially announced on April the 1st, but turns out to be real) - video embedded below:

With the BionicKangaroo, Festo has technologically reproduced the unique way a kangaroo moves. Like its natural model, it can recover the energy when jumping, store it and efficiently use it for the next jump.

Fresh tinyBug v0.1

Today we received the first batch of our pre-beta Erlenmeyer tinyBug circuit boards to be used in various future projects.
The board was developed by Erlenmeyer’s own Frank Kolkman in a couple of days (and nights) for an electronics workshop we are doing this week at a 3D printing conference.
The workshop will show the power of laser cutting, 3D printing, electronics and Arduino code by understanding how you can use these techniques to create truly unique projects without having to start from scratch.

Must-see lecture by Jacob Appelbaum on NSA surveillance tactics.
The scale, intentions and methods of these programs are ludicrous and this presentation leaves nothing to the imagination.

When listening to the track ‘Us’ by Australian band Movement on 22tracks yesterday it sounded familiar in some way. About halfway into the song I realized it reminded me of ‘Wolken’ by Dutch rap group Flinke Namen and I decided to download both video’s from YouTube to make a mash-up of the two songs for fun. After a few seconds I concluded the tracks were both too similar to make a simple mash-up in Premiere Pro so I analyzed the tracks and found out ‘Us’ was a bit longer than ‘Wolken’.

The easiest thing to do then is see if, and how, stuff would fit and since ‘Us’ is a pretty slow track, speeding it up by 120% was what I ended up doing.

Much to my surprise it turned out that the faster track was sounding pretty good and was more on the pace of ‘Wolken’. When I put the speeded up track under the video of ‘Wolken’ things turned out to match up nearly perfect.

I edited out the gun shot from the Movement video and made the final shots from ‘Wolken’ about 10 frames shorter.

The resulting video is this mash-up of music and video, I do not own any of the content nor do I want to appear to do so.

The video is:
Directed by Jim Taihuttu (Habbekrats)
DOP is Gregg Telussa


The track is:
Made and owned by Movement (just @ 120%)
