Thanks to everyone who shared my story, I’m halfway to my goal of a mobility scooter that will change my life. I am so grateful to all of you for your help. I tried to make a video but I’m too emotional right now. I never thought I would even be close to halfway so soon. I had steeled myself for the likelihood of having to live with the pain and stress of walking for months before I could get a scooter that was suitable for traveling with my job on the tour. The idea that I could have one even sooner fills me with hope. I’m in a lot of pain right now, but knowing that so many of you guys are with me in this keeps me going. Thank you all so much.

She’s awesome. Let’s help her out. If you can’t donate, signal boosts are good.
Just want to add some information about this one.
The start and the middle of the code come from a nuke file.
Nuke is a compositing software used on many film and TV series, the working file are not compiled so if you open a file in a text edit you can find some code line that look like that.
Dude hacks his Hearing to listen to WiFi
Frank Swain ist seit Jahren taub und nun zusammen mit Künstler Daniel Jones sein Hörgerät gehackt eine App für sein Hörgerät entwickelt, mit der er WiFi-Signale hören kann. Oben eine Karte eines Spaziergangs von Swain durch London, mit verzeichneten WiFi-Signalen. Auf der Website des Phantom Terrain-Projekts gibt’s auch das Soundfile dazu, das ähnlich wie die ollen Modem-Sounds klingt – nur seltsamer. Ist das jetzt schon sowas wie Artificial Synaesthesie? So’n bisschen wie Neil Harbisson? Oder ist das quasi Sinn-Hacking durch Erweiterung „empfangbarer“ Frequenzbereiche? Jedenfalls: Weird Body-Hacking Art is weird. Toll!
I AM walking through my north London neighbourhood on an unseasonably warm day in late autumn. I can hear birds tweeting in the trees, traffic prowling the back roads, children playing in gardens and Wi-Fi leaching from their homes. Against the familiar sounds of suburban life, it is somehow incongruous and appropriate at the same time. As I approach Turnpike Lane tube station and descend to the underground platform, I catch the now familiar gurgle of the public Wi-Fi hub, as well as the staff network beside it. On board the train, these sounds fade into silence as we burrow into the tunnels leading to central London.
I have been able to hear these fields since last week. This wasn’t the result of a sudden mutation or years of transcendental meditation, but an upgrade to my hearing aids. With a grant from Nesta, the UK innovation charity, sound artist Daniel Jones and I built Phantom Terrains, an experimental tool for making Wi-Fi fields audible.
New Scientist: The man who can hear Wi-Fi wherever he walks
Dude creates Nano-Sculpture on an AntJonty Hurwitz hat die bislang detailiertesten Nano-Skulpturen mit 3D-Druck und „Multiphoton Lithography“ erstellt. Und zwar in einem Nadelöhr und – auf einer fucking Ameise. Auf seiner Website erklärt er, wie’s geht und nennt das „Art, literally created with Quantum Physics“. Awesome!
The structure is created using a ground-breaking new 3D printing technology and a technique called Multiphoton Lithography. Ultimately these works are created using the physical phenomenon of two photon absorption. Art, literally created with Quantum Physics.
If you illuminate a light-sensitive polymer with Ultra Violet wavelengths, it solidifies wherever it was irradiated in a kind of crude lump. Some of you may have experienced a polymer like this first hand at the dentist when your filling is glued in with a UV light.
If however you use longer wavelength intense light, and focus it tightly through a microscope, something wonderful happens: at the focus point, the polymer absorbs TWO PHOTONS and responds as if it had been illuminated by UV light, namely it will solidify. This two photon absorption occurs only at the tiny focal point – basically a tiny 3D pixel (called a Voxel). The sculpture is then moved along fractionally by a computer controlled process and the next pixel is created. Slowly, over hours and hours the entire sculpture is assembled pixel by pixel and layer by layer.
Mario And Luigi Making People Hurt ThemselvesSuper Bad Mario is a series of videos of people hurting themselves with Mario and Luigi added to the scenes to make it look like they’re the ones bringing the pain. A lot of the clips they used are classics, but Mario and Luigi definitely put a fresh spin on things. Like spicing up a boring chicken breast by marinading it in a spicy curry sauce for a couple hours before baking it! “WTF are you talking about?” I’m hungry.
