Template-Generator for Paper-Boxes

Nikolaus Gradwohl2010-06-13T17:16:00+00:00

I made a template-generator for paper-boxes today. Fill out the size values your box should have, then print out the generated mesh. Cut the dark lines, fold the light ones and - tataaaa - a small paper-box that can be used to wrap up all kinds of presents

The program is written completely in javascript using the canvas element, so it should work on any browser, supporting the canvas element

This is my Day 12 project for 30DaysOfCreativity

This is what the input-form looks like


and this is the template that gets generated

Blinking Logfile Map

Nikolaus Gradwohl2010-06-05T18:17:00+00:00

I always wanted to see where the readers of my blog are comming from, so I took a picture frame and inserted a world map, a handfull of leds and an arduino. Some soldering and some rubyscripts later I had my hardware geo-aware logfile visualization.

I have a script running at the server that parses new ip adresses from the log file and geocodes them. Than the continent code is sent to my mac where i have a little script that forwards the continent code to the serial port. And finally the arduino in the picture frame is making the leds blink. The whole project was hacked together as a weekend project so the scripts might need some "fine-tuning" :-)

This is my day 5 project for 30DaysOfCreativity

so please read my blog to make the leds blink :-)
