Some derpy numbers

Now that this site has basically turned into ‘herp derp‘ central, I thought I’d post some numbers up regarding downloads. Running this command on my Apache access logs provided me with the download numbers for each browser version (in this case Firefox):

cat access.log | grep xpi | colrm 16 | sort | uniq | wc -l

 

Note: This method isn’t exactly super precise, it would only count once per IP, but it does the job. It also doesn’t account for other sites like download.com.

As of this post:

Chrome: 4722
Firefox: 2564
Safari: 531
Opera: 278

Update: 7-12-12

Shortly after creating this post I got picked up by Boing Boing, Gizmodo, and Reddit. New numbers:

Chrome: 8026
Firefox: 4025
Safari: 919
Opera: 415

Kinect + Arduino

With an Arduino Ethernet, Processing, and a Kinect, I was able to easily create this little demo where hand movement can control a servo. This is just a tiny step in my master plan to create a robot clone so that I don’t have to leave my chair.

The following libraries and drivers made this work and also made it super easy for me to create it:

OpenKinect
Daniel Shiffman’s Processing Kinect Library (he knows his stuff and has great examples on his site)
Arduino Ethernet UDP send / receive string

Servo:
EMAX ES08A Servo

How it works:

  1. The Arduino Ethernet acquires an IP address and waits for UDP packets on a certain port.
  2. The machine with the Kinect sends packets to the Arduino that contain hand coordinate data.
  3. The Arduino then takes this data (an integer) and maps the range from 0 to 180 degrees.
  4. The mapped value is sent to the servo.

Arduino’d Gingerbread House

It’s not a serious competition until you’ve put a microcontroller inside your gingerbread house. Since we were going for the Charlie Brown theme, I ripped apart and adapted a musical card that played ‘Linus and Lucy’. I also rigged up some LEDs to blink with the music. Video below the pictures.
