Working with Karotz

A few months ago after seeing a friend’s Nabaztag I eventually ordered a Karotz, it’s spiritual successor.  Alas it arrived the same day as my new piano so it sat ignored for a couple of months.  Then last week I figured having dropped $200 on it I should get it to do something more useful than playing french internet radio.  So here it is telling me when the bus is coming (something I otherwise have to open up the laptop for):

Comparing 160-bit hash values with SSE

I’m writing this up as it’s one of those things I was trying to do and thought I’d just be able to crib how to do it from the Internet yet a good amount of googleing turned up nothing.  So here it it for anyone else looking for the same thing.

Projection mapping Arthur’s Seat

Here’s something fun I found while clearing out the hard drives on my old pc—my undergraduate graphics project.  Basically it involved projection mapping photographs of Arthur’s Seat (a big hill in Edinburgh) onto a model created from map contours.  Here’s a couple of videos:

My first plugin

My first vfx job was with Smoke & Mirrors in London—I use the word ‘job’ in the loosest sense, as they were actually part-sponsoring my doctorate and part of the deal was that they had to employ me for three months over the three years (it was actually more complicated than that, involving a subsidiary that went bust, but that’s a story for another day).

Siggraph sketch that never happened

Back in 2003, I submitted a sketch to Siggraph on my thesis work.  I had been working at Framestore for a few months, was waiting for the University to organise my viva and figured that if I got something accepted I might have a fighting chance of getting someone else to pay my airfare to San Diego.
