Using our Python API for NASA’s Mars images to piece together collages, panoramas, and colored images of what Perseverance sees on the red planet.
Set 4 of cryptopals! We are warned that people drop out after this set so let’s make the most of it.
Micropython + multiplexer = more analog inputs for our ESP8266
As we’re getting more comfortable with our 3D printer, we’re starting to look out for handy things to print, along with nice modelling/design software. This is a short post describing how to use OpenSCAD‘s python scripting via SolidPython to design a 3D-printed box that holds watercolor paint tubes, a brush, a sponge, and has wells for mixing paints. It’s based on a small set of Daniel Smith watercolor tubes
Finally, the 3rd installment of notes for the Cryptopals crypto challenges. It’s still incomplete but it’s been lying around for ages and I guess I can always come back and edit it.
Fiddling around with floating point cellular automata to make intricate patterns.
As you can see, the title is about the hardware, because that’s what defines what you are capable of in the physical world. It lets you imagine what you can achieve mechanically. However, the main focus of this post is instead about gluing components together to actually make them …
8-bit music makes a comeback!
Continuing the cryptopals crypto challenges with Set 2. Don’t read this unless you’re absolutely sure you don’t want to try them out yourself.
We recently started working on the cryptopals crypto challenges in Python 3, coming in with zero cryptography knowledge. Here are some notes on our thought process while solving Set 1, along with our solutions. Don’t read this if you want to try them out too.
