I love Facebook and how it has become such an important part of our lives in the 21st century. I noticed as most people would have , patterns in Facebook. The most common among these patterns come from Status Messages. Each an every one of us has at least one friend who status updates 24/7 or this person falls under a certain pattern that has become Facebook stereo types on the internet. I felt since they are being judged based on the status they must have stress. To deal with the stress I created a tutorial to make RollingStatus Check out the instruct able if you or someone you know goes through Status Stress.

The Biggest Reality TV Star is my final project for my Databases class. The idea was to take the basic concept of Battle Robots and create your own theme. You enter two Twitter usernames, or any two names at all, and find out who is the bigger star. Thought you guys might be interested in playing and checking it out. Hope you like it!

For my final, I decided to create a plush bear prototype that belongs to one of the characters in my thesis’ narrative. My thesis project explores the nature of associating memories or experiences with inanimate objects and how we form greater connections with them.
I used Arduino and MAX/MSP in order to create a simple video player. Using Arduino2Max, I was able to get the Arduino board to communicate with MAX/MSP by generating a range of numbers (using a flex sensor and a force sensor) that could then be manipulated.

For my final project, I wanted to make a trailer for my thesis project, a short animation about N. Korean suffering from lack of human right. A butterfly in this animation is the representation/metaphor of the someone in N.Korea not being about to tell their story by showing how they are not able to speak about their lives because they don’t have the freedom to do so. The story of this animation will be told on a website that the zoetrope tells you to go to so you can watch the animation.

This holography display case is made by Realfiction. They use simple reflecting method to create a holography image between physical and virtual space. It looks amazing and it can be surprisingly new visual experience. Here is the link to Realfiction. It is easy to build your own holography case.

For my final project, I wanted to create a book of things that are visually different but still share a relationship of words. I created a pop-up book with compound words that consist of the word “High”.
I was inspired by Radiohead Presentation of words and ABD3D.

My final project is incorporated with my thesis project.
For my thesis, I’m going to create a 2D animation about the Dunhuang Mogao Caves in China to educate Chinese students about their cultural heritage.
For this project, I’m thinking about how to present my thesis project and show my animation. There is a possibility that my animation is shown in the gallery or museum. My goal is to how to make history relevant in the present. How can I create this physical experience to show my animation. Therefore, I wanted to use projection on a rock-like surface. I made a paper mache rock with screen wire and wrapping paper but it looked small and I couldn’t get anything bigger.
I came up with a idea. I made a half of my bedroom a cave. This is a lot easier to create an experience and make something big. I used 48″*10 yards regular brown wrapping paper, brown tapes, projector, mini DV camcorder, tripod to make this project. Actually. it looked very good though I spent a lot of time with the color, brightness of the projection, figuring out how to make projection work and keeping the paper falling but it’s fun thanks to my tiny bedroom. I finally cleaned up my messy cave bedroom but I quite enjoyed staying in the cave that night and it seemed that those ancient artists lived in the caves.

Just in case you haven’t noticed, Instructables is having a Life Hacks Contest, which is pretty much what your second project was.
So you may want to think about entering, but you might have to make a new intructable (I’m not sure). And if you win you will get a patch and everyone will see that you are a winner! (on the internet)

I flew home for the thanksgiving holiday and didn’t experience any extra security but lots of people asked me if I did, so when I saw these shirts I thought they were hilarious.

I know Becky posted this on craft so shes already seen it, but I thought they were so funny and well done, and reminded me so much of Marie’s project, that I thought they deserved to be on this blog too.
