an altogether higher class of gibbonindex
Last week's Sunday Things was a special edition exclusively for the IRS (the contents weren't exactly riveting stuff) - and in keeping with these modern times, I have decreed not to share it with the rest of you.
Bonus High Voltage On A Budget corner:
- Getting Sparks from Water with Lord Kelvin's Thunderstorm - tin cans, plastic tubs, wires, water and a spark gap. I'm going to have to rummage through my recycling for the materials...

Late again? I've been away. More scenes have been captured for VR, and I even took a few conventional shots too.
A few extras on the photos page. I have so much data to sort through...
More random linkage dredged from the bookmarks!
Bonus Useful Skills For After The Apocalypse corner:
- Rough Science - some kind soul has uploaded the complete set to YouTube. Ideal material for insomniacs, this BBC / Open University show had scientists building unlikely things from near base principles. Taking a photograph with horse manure, a sparkly rock and a magnifying glass? Yes. Also the subject of last week's mini-puzzle, solved by Acolyte Pace after a bit of prompting - I'd found precise coordinates for the filming locations for all six series: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6.
- Primitive Technology - for if the apocalypse was really spectacular. Glorious Australian loon making useful stuff from mud, rocks and trees.
Yet another digitised segment of Derbyshire to explore in room-scale VR, this time some wintry Beech Woodlands on the Destinations Workshop.
A bit of an experiment into capturing vegetation in 3D, with a pretty much worst-case scene. Fine detail, complex topology, large area to cover... It mostly worked. Mostly.
Some of the branches are definitely a bit cobwebby. But some aren't! This is progress.
Description contains an absolutely huge batch of discoveries and processes involved, only some of which are covered in the existing outdoors photogrammetry tutorial.
