▶ Ruin: A Post Apocalyptic Short Film – YouTube


My favorite thing about this short film: the cicadas in the background. Thanks Curio!

Curio Reverie

It’s been a while since I posed a good short film, but I stumbled across this in my ramblings. Excellent computer animation. Make sure to watch to the very end. There’s a little tidbit at the end for ya.

Self-Balancing Uni-board?


I’ll take one!

Hackaday

Capture

There are skateboards, long boards, and snowboards. This was originally a snowboard, but we’re not quite sure how to classify it now… Introducing the Segbot Snowboard.

[Steve Ghertner] has been playing around with accelerometers lately and decided to try making something practical. He’s taken a snowboard and turned it into a two-wheeled, segway-like balancing board. The two parallel wheels are powered individually by 12V scooter motors. An Arduino Uno takes care of processing the data from a MPU-6050, which is a triple axis gyro and accelerometer.

You can control the board by leaning, or  by using a small two-button remote. He hasn’t taken it very far out of the lab yet, but plans to after cleaning up the programming a bit.

Stick around for the following video where he explains it at his local hackerspace in Nashville, the Middle TN Robotic Arts Society where members strive to “Control Them…

The Orb of Pyritus


(Image Source)

A tremor surges across the etherverse. . . The strong of a thousand universes hear its call. Like an eternal black hole it once drew power and the powerful to itself. Now, the portals open once again.
Many will seek the prize, and many will fall before its might. But in the end, there can be only one. . .

. . . one WIELDER OF THE ORB!

A new round of the Newcomers Role Play ‘The Orb of Pyritus’ has just opened! Stop on my the RP section and get your Character Dev’ on!

The Orb of Pyritus

It is all powerful and sought by many, but few are the ones who will wield it. When it was created, the Orb opened a myriad of portals to other dimensions, as though it were calling its suitors into battle. Now, conflict is brewing across the Multiverse as competitors seek to be the sole holder of the ORB OF PYRITUS.

The Game 
This is not a typical game on the RPG forum. It is designed for low commitment play for any players who want to introduce themselves, practice, experiment, or just have fun.

The goal of each character is to acquire the Orb of Pyritus. When the orb was created it opened many portals from other dimensions. Your character can be from any dimension you can imagine and be whatever type of character you wish. Its wide open.

Come and join us!

Which Novel shall I write?


What would you like to read next year?

The J. Aurel Guay Archive

My goal for 2014 is to get published in another anthology, and to get a novel written for submission in 2015. But I need your help, on the latter part. I’ve got a lot of ideas, and some already started stories. But I’m not sure which one to pursue! I won’t be able to start any serious novel writing for a month or two, but I need get the pot stewing on the plot and character development  now so that I am ready when I have time.

Take a look at the ideas below and help me by throwing down your votes!

OvertoneTwo scientists are given the ability to see beyond the natural world and into the substructures that control it. What they find sets them on different, and opposing, paths that will change the fate of the world.

Science Fiction/Urban Fantasy set in the future, strong spiritual themes.
