I had a Logitech mm28 NXT speaker for about 4 years. It was great, amazing battery life, good sound (up to a certain point), portable etc… However it broke a few months a go (due to me dropping it on a concrete floor) and I didn’t know what to get as a replacement. I was thinking about getting the same one again but I found out they don’t make them any more.
Last couple of weeks I’ve been rinsing the online stores and my bank account. I decided this year I would finally buy my own snowboard kit as renting it was starting to add up and didn’t really seem worth it. My friend Joe goes to Imperial College in London and is head of the snow committee.
I found that you can generate a fractal in After Effects the other day.. I couldn’t resist having a little play. Here’s what I created… Be warned the video is ever so lightly trippy :p
Back in May I saw that the company Wicked Lasers were taking payments for a new laser pen that was soon to be released. They said it was the worlds most powerful consumer laser. Usually for a laser pen of equivalent power would cost around $1000 mark. They were selling these for a mere $197! I couldn’t resist. £130 for a laser pen I hear you say.. well you have to understand that I’ve been obsessed and fascinated by lasers since I got a little red one on January the 1st 2000! I’ve had many different types included a couple of Green ones since. I got a 100mw green laser about 3 years ago (that was capable of burning certain things) and loved it. So when I found out that I could get the most powerful laser available (and its blue!) for a relatively low cost I ordered straight away :p.
In the new year I went on the Nottingham Trent Snowsports trip to Tignes in France. I was responsible for documenting all the crazy stuff that went down.
Over all the main video is 16 minutes long with 6 minutes of extra features and 195 high res images.
