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.
Since I've been thoroughly neglecting to upload any photos recently, have a purely arbitrary selection from the past year or so on the photos page. (I'm still sorting a load out in Lightroom, and realise I've forgotten many.)
Greetings, readers across the world! I had a quick peer at my web-stats whatsits, to see followers from as far afield as Austria, Latvia, Peru and New Zealand. Hello, whoever you are.
This week is mainly retro space-related, with some bonus 1970s horror.
Bonus Terran Trade Authority corner:
- Spacecraft: 2000 to 2100 AD - I remember finding a copy of one of these compilations in the appropriate-looking Heanor Public Library some time in the late '80s. Best thing ever.
