BuildBrighton White Night Workshop - Sessions 2 and 3

Posted by barnoid Sun, 31 Oct 2010 16:39:53 GMT

This is a timelapse video of the Light Brigade workshop run by the BuildBrighton hackerspace as part of the White Night festivities. The workshop involved soldering together a badge consisting of an RGB LED, a microcontroller, battery, IR LED and IR receiver. The badges have a unique ID which is represented as a colour on the LED. They constantly transmit their ID using IR, other badges can receive the transmissions and collect colours which they cycle through on the RGB LED. They also have a zombie game mode where a badge can become "infected" and flashes red. It will then infect all other badges that receive its transmissions. It was far more popular than we anticipated, some people waiting over an hour for a place and many being turned away. A lot of work went into it, particularly from Mike and Matt and I think it was very successful, people seemed to enjoy it. I saw several people who’d never soldered before pick it up and walk away proud of the flashy badge they’d just made. This video covers 21:50 until 00:30 and includes sessions two and three. It was made from 1736 shots taken with a Canon Powershot S2 running CHDK, then made into a video with ffmpeg.

San Francisco Timelapse

Six hours and 14 minutes of the view from our room in the Marriot on Fourth Street. 702 photos taken with a Canon PowerShot S2 IS running CHDK, batch processed with Imagemagick then movied with mencoder. Featuring a moonset followed by dawn resulting in a fade to white. The fade is unintentional, it’s due to me accidentally leaving the camera in shutter priority mode, oops.
