Golden History Museum: 1949 Simplex Film Projector

This is an old film projector that was in use at the Golden’s Gem Theatre back in the 1940’s. The location of the theater is now occupied by a coffee shop, restaurants and small businesses.

Badge Pirates are real

It’s just like that old saying “what is old is new and what is new is old and someone used my rotary mobile phone”. Last year a buddy of mine passed along an old 3D project to a bunch of hacker code crackers who make fancy badges for their cyber security conventions. They contacted me to ask if they could repurpose my rotary mobile design that indecently was published in 3D Total a decade ago for a badge. How can you say “No” to hackers? They’re modern day wizards that can take all your bitcoin in a blink of an eye! (haha jokes on them I don’t have any)

Anyways this was the end result with active electronics that were used for a scavenger hunt.
They did a great job!

Now can a hacker hack this wallet by filling it with bitcoin?!

The Double Volt Gaussian Post

Here are a couple of Gaussian Splat captures of my 2015 Chevy Volt. The greatest electric/gas combo vehicle to ever roll down a road. Above is captured on Zion Mt in Golden Colorado on the road to Lookout Mt. It’s a little hard to tell but we are above the clouds here. We get a few days a year when there is a thick carpet of fog that hugs the towns and cities on the Front Range and you can drive up a mountain to see blue skies. Below is outside the American Legion post 21 on a cold Saturday morning also in Golden.

Camp George West in Golden, Colorado

Revisited Camp George West in Golden Colorado. You might recognize this building in some of my other posts here on this site.
I most recently used it in this test Unreal Engine video.

Unreal Engine test animation using photogrammetry assets scanned at Camp George West in Golden Colorado. I also added some environmental sounds.
