More Timeslicing + Some Old Stuff

Got a new Cannon Powershot sx200is (was promptly CHDK’d) which can do some surprisingly good 720p video. So I thought I’d have a bash at running some footage through the timeslicing code I’ve written. Unfortunately the re-encoding with ffmpeg wasn’t so good so the quality is a bit out of whack, but here is is anyway with the wonderful BlackCloud1711 modelling for the footage:

Also here’s a couple of pictures of an old GCSE (I think) project. It’s a parallel port controlled pen drum plotter. Most of the mechanical hardware was built by my dad with a couple of design suggestions thrown in from me, all the electronics and software was done by me (before the days of fancy-pancy arduinos). It’s controlled through the parallel port with all the code written in QBasic on a IBM100 (100Mhz raaaawwww power, also the first computer that was mine, it was only about 10 years out of date).

One of these days I’ll get round to adding an arduino with a G-Code interpreter to it so I can get some delicious plotting action on the go.
