1. Super Angry Birds is a force feedback USB controller for Angry Birds that simulates the feeling of a slingshot. All the controls found in the game are available in this device. You can control the pull, the angle, and of course trigger the special power of the bird. We hacked a motorized fader found in audio mixing consoles to simulate the force you would feel when using a slingshot.

    We programmed in Max/MSP and Arduino. For controlling the hardware, we used an Arduino-based microcontroller called Music & Motors developed by CIID.

    This was part of the class on Haptics at CIID run by Bill Verplank and David Gauthier.

  2. A fully functional Super 8 Movie Projector I built using Lego Technic. The only non-Lego parts are the lens, the reel spindles and the lamp.

    The projector uses just two engines and is fully featured with automatic feeding, 24 fps, fast rewind and 120m reel capabilities. A decent LED flashlight makes it pretty amazingly bright. :)

  3. SLR Magic 25mm T0.95 VS Voigtlander 25mm f/0.95 : The Exclusive Fight !

    1st hands on of the SLR lens here : vimeo.com/60971533

    GH3 AVCHD 1080P 50
    SLR Magic 25mm always @ T0.95
    Voigtlander 25mm always @ f/0.95
    Natural mode
    No color correction

    I've just received from SLR Magic their new 25mm T0.95 lens, the production copy. It has been improved with sharpness and purple fringing from EOSHD and 3D-Kraft Pre production lens.

    The result is astonishing to my opinion, very sharp image at full aperture. Here is a non scientific quick test between those two lenses. More tests to come.
