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 project to a bunch of hackers who make fancy badges for their hacking conventions. They contacted me to ask if they could repurpose the rotary mobile design for a badge. How could I say “No” they’re hackers after all and no one in their right mind would want to upset that crowd. They can take all your bitcoin! (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.

The Mill Girl of Manchester NH 2017 vs 2024

This is what “The Mill Girl” looks like as of Jan 4th 2024 and below is what or how it was presented back in 2017. Documenting it’s different positions was an unintended use for this technology from me. I do find it interesting seeing the difference. Personally I think the statue is more effective not on a pedestal.

You can see other (old) photogrammetry models and more here on my sketchfab page.
