Adobe Edge

by admin on 9/11/2011

I download the Adobe Edge Preview a week ago but I did not make any time to look at it until yesterday. Edge is a program that will make Flash like animation’s with only CSS3 and HTML5. The tool is so easy to work with I was able to build this within 30 minutes.

Adobe Edge Intro

I think this program is briliantly done that anyone can work with it and can actually make very nice animations! One downside though is that the amount of fonts are very limited. This might me changed in the final version of the program, however this is just speculation. A way of solving this is of course the use of pictures. However that will make the animations a bit more processor intensive.

I’ve got another idea about an intro for my website, instead of the sliding/fading in of text I will make words fall from the top and will bounce till they have found their spot.

Will post this when ready!

Led Cube

by admin on 1/11/2011

In high school I chose to build a led cube according to a DIY tutorial on Instructables.com a site which I absolutely love! I was a nice project. Although it was crushed in the car twice this week.

You can read the full report here

 

So yesterday i pulled my soldering iron from the closet. And decided to fix it again! This is the result 4x4x4 Led Cube @ Work

Although these effects look really nice i’m a really looking forwards to program these myself. Which i can probably do with the skills they teach me in Programming and Physical Computing.

I will update once i made my own effect!

Robotics project.

In 2010 i did a project for school in which we programmed a robot  to follow a line and avoid obstacles that are on the line. The project was finished in 2010 and executed by Bart Brinkman & Robert Aiking.

It was quite a nice project! For further information BoeBot Robotics V3.0Boe Bot
