Processing and PComp come together
From the site:
Wiring is a programming environment and electronics i/o
board for exploring the electronic arts, tangible media, teaching and
learning computer programming and prototyping with electronics. It illustrates
the concept of programming with electronics and the physical realm of
hardware control which are necessary to explore physical interaction design
and tangible media aspects
Very nice.. A compiler (Java/Processing) and board for physical computing type work.
Sun and Java moving into the PComp arena
Sun SPOT | Sig9
From the site:
Sun SPOT (Small Programmable Object Technology) is a new research project at Sun Labs that promises to turn a vision into reality, the vision being, to make wireless sensors ready for mass commercial deployment by simplifying application development for them. Wireless sensors are inexpensive battery-powered, low-power communication devices composed of radios and exceptionally small mechanical structures that sense fields and forces in the physical world.
Repurpose that disposable camcorder
Boing Boing: Pinouts for CVS’s “disposable” camcorder
From Boing Boing:
CVS Pharmacies sell a one-time-use camcorder that you have to bring to their shop once you’re ready to get your videos, which are delivered on DVD. Enterprising hackers are racing to reverse-engineer the camcorder so that they can extract their own video and make multiple uses of the camera without paying repeatedly.
Use Linux to turn your iPod into a recording device
JBox – Java and Linux in a nice little package
Welcome to iGoJava – iGoLogic JBOX Java J2SE Embedded Development Kit!
Perfect for many of my projects, fairly inexpensive, powered by a Via single board computer, runs Linux and pre-installed with J2SE. Very nice..!
TiVo releases Java based Open Source Platform for building applications
TiVo Home Media Engine SDK
I am sold.. Unfortuantely things are looking bad for the company. I think I will bite anyway.. This is the kind of thing that I think can turn a company around.
Some fun with FM and your Mac

ITP Winter Show 2004
ITP Winter Show 2004
Sunday, December 19 from 2 to 6pm
Monday, December 20 from 5 to 9pm
A two-day explosion of interactive sight, sound and technology from the student artists and innovators at ITP.
An oversized Greenwich Village loft houses the computer labs, rotating exhibitions, and production workshops that are ITP — the Interactive Telecommunications Program. Founded in 1979 as the first graduate education program in alternative media, ITP has grown into a living community of technologists, theorists, engineers, designers, and artists uniquely dedicated to pushing the boundaries of interactivity in the real and digital worlds. A hands-on approach to experimentation, production and risk-taking make this hi-tech fun house a creative home not only to its 230 students, but also to an extended network of the technology industry’s most daring and prolific practitioners.
