It turns out that that was a bit of a siren song. Without the horrible ship-crashing-into-rocks bit, of course. Just the good part, with the sweet tunes and the singin’ babes. What, you expect me to come up with a better metaphor than that? What do you think I am, someone who gets paid to write words? Jeez.
Now that my post-CES temperature is back in the double digits, I figured I’d make good on my promise to give a glimpse of my next one-off toy project (following the the AR TARDIS). It’s a tiny, deliberately fuzzy glimpse with some bits blurred or otherwise omitted so as to not totally ruin the best feature, but it’s a glimpse nonetheless!
As the more discerning geeks out there will notice, it’s a Creeper from Minecraft. The fun part, however, is what’s inside. IT’S HAM*!
I’ll need to learn a few new tricks for this one and life seems to be getting busy quickly, so ETA is the never-welcome “when it’s done”.
I started drafting up a rather neat new project on the plane ride home from Vegas, and I have a feeling it’s going to be one of those projects that takes over my brain until I find a way to get it done. More on that in a day or two, fever-induced hysteria allowing.
In hindsight, it was probably a bit dumb for me to roll out this blog without a link to the RSS feed. Especially considering that RSS support is… you know, built into WordPress.
I’ve received a few dozen emails about it, so I’ve added a link to the RSS feed down below. Follow it for updates on my AR TARDIS project, and to be the first to get a glimpse at a few other top-secret projects I’ve been cookin’ up.
As I used roughly a zillion words to explain yesterday, I’ve spent the last few months tinkering with all sorts of little projects in an effort to learn to build awesome things. Most of the projects were intended to be scrapped from the get-go, meant primarily to help me wrap my head around some concept – brain fodder, if you will. With others, I was testing the water with ideas I might want to flesh out into proper ventures down the road.
With a few of’em, I was just putting things I’d learned together for the sake of just making something cool, viability be damned. This is one of those.
I built a TARDIS. With the help of some augmented reality trickery, it’s bigger on the inside (as any proper TARDIS should be.) Check it out:
Just over six months ago, I took a step back and looked at my job. It was hugely fun, and wonderfully challenging. I got to work with talented people, and I was compensated quite comfortably. Then I, er, quit.
Partly because I missed puttings words on the Internet (having opted to take a break from the writing world to go learn fun new things and generally just level up) and partly because I wanted somewhere to show off a few side projects in the coming weeks, I figured I’d roll my personal site back into a blog.
