Hack like Heck Updates :
..and more? Ask @ rocits!
Back in d'good awld day-s! :
When I was a small kid I broke electronic toys faster than anybody, no time for screwy screws , how does it work!? how can I open it quickly!? While Jobs was probably getting fired I was pretending to create a 'netflix' type interface from video image cutouts on cardboard, completely immersed in my fantasy of the future idyllic conveniences lol, still doesn't exist the way I imagined.. Augmented Reality >>> nearly there now! #AR
Like most over awed by core tech kids creating lego variations, bunk-bed lifts and magnetic controller games , trying to over power motors to make a helicopter with a wired control. I haven't 'played' about with electronics since, I gradually bought some of the core tools hoping I would have spare time! that time is now! lol =D
Electronics & More..
I've Watched TBHS for a good while, really enjoy it right back to first episode and gradually horded masses of attic electro-tech-crud hoping that the electronic mastery of Ben would click in eventually by osmosis as soon as I have time to build, which is now! Also very interested in graphene and hyper practical nano tech!
Why? why? whyyyyyyyyy..
If I can just get through my overly ambitious build [for me] and video it would be way beyond what I ever intended to do..
..make a funny audition video dedicated to all the excellent work of TBHS .. for me the jokes/memes would be a serious bonus, it's was ridiculously fun making the audition tape I lost track of all/any edit timing, flow and polish! [maybe a V3 might get me up to scratch]
Fav Projects :
I've attempted!!! lol ..Little bits of everything from household, art, crafts, eco, ecotech, flash/opentoonz animation, sheet metal, civil/mechanical engineering, gyo, diy, teaching 2m+ in 100+ countries core web stuff http://www.goopal.org , Now starting again with core #AR technologies, just like the core web tech had to be figured out gradually, cloud apps , ar ,vr gadgets to IT solutions etc etc etc ...
i.e. ROCITS [Rory O Connor IT Solutions]..maybe should be rocIoTs lol that would be tioght ! https://www.rocits.com
My own 'super cloud systems' Community:
Working on a prototyping inventory/design/VR networked WebApp
[working title- AR/VR update coming soonish, trying to connect everything up with the 'hack like heck' competition
My own Google Technology Community :
My Fav project is up-cycling broken wheelie bins like a the garden organizer in the audition video, building into a possible 40 + uses ! e.g. a snow plough would have come in handy recently!
A full series on LBRY.io ? would be great! I enjoy working with constraints, they help me be more creative & imaginative to find solutions then most progress becomes a satisfying challenge!
AR -Augmented Reality is my singlulary focus & I strongly believe [and even google officially announced it is..] the next BIG trilly? platform!
WebGL and WASM [web Assembly] are ones to watch! Some engineering application already available like mysketchup & sketchfab.Many technology areas are merging very successfully.
#AR / #VR Focus on Twitter and Github!
#AR >>>> Advanced Creative Design & Interaction , Product & Training Solutions, Engineering, Hacking, Iot & Electronics etc.. >>>> #thefuture
Hope & Dreams! D'aw! [... massive shattering bg noise just on time!] DOH!!!
My ultimate ambition is to create a vastly creative, innovative & eco-tech globally networked villages utilizing ecodomes design/builds lol , but may just settle for a up-cycle work-shed on a Mediterranean island! DOH!!! =D
