Im Zuge der Lounge Renovierung sind die Archäologen überraschend auf diesen Fund gestoßen. Die Ruinen werden nun fachkundig freigelegt und konserviert.

I'm using a genetic algorithm to approximate a series of convolutions which try to mimic a given effect. In this example it tries to learn a 8x8 blur effect generated with ImageMagick (convert -blur 8x8).
The upper images in the video show the current approximation and the magnitude spectrogram of its discrete fourier transform (DFT).
The lower images show the target image and its DFT.
Only results of the best candidate of each generation is shown in the video.

Hackerspacing in Europe: HSBXL in Brussels

IMG_0737 (Custom)

Welcome to Hackerspace Brussels.

This place is cool. It’s a 4 story house with a lot of character… and characters! It was one of the first hackerspaces in Belgium and spawned many of the other ones very quickly. We’re on the right left, rocking their cool dude shirts!

IMG_0731 (Custom)

Walking along a quiet street you will come upon house number 40. There’s an old Macintosh mouse on the door. Choose the button wisely…

IMG_0711 (Custom)

Directly inside is the main work bench with a few tools — nothing too impressive but more than enough for most projects.

IMG_0712 (Custom)

Opposite the bench is an old cigarette machine that they are converting to a component dispenser! Above that is the cheque they won from Microsoft for a competition

IMG_0716 (Custom)

A nice library collection of slightly outdated texts…

IMG_0719 (Custom)

Like ACKspace, they also have an automated bar inventory system, also written in Bash.

IMG_0720 (Custom)

Simply scan your chosen product, and leave the cash!

IMG_0729 (Custom)

This is the main lounge area on the first floor. Lots of couches, a projector, and even a hacked together touch screen table!

IMG_0739 (Custom)

The space also has an automated hydroponics set-up, one inside, and one outside.

IMG_0741 (Custom)

They actually have one of the largest backyards on the street, so they have a very nice home-made barbeque set-up and a large garden for hanging out in.

IMG_0746 (Custom)

Lots of green space!

IMG_0747 (Custom)

View back into the first floor, the black tarp on the left is the outdoor hydroponics tank that is filled with fish.

IMG_0685 (Custom)

The second floor is the main electronics lab, and it contains many, many components. All the components! This space lucks out when it comes to donations and dumpster diving. Need a special capacitor? No problem. A high wattage resistor? How high? A speciality LED? Yup.

IMG_0686 (Custom)

This is the main electronics bench, plenty of space, soldering irons, and light. A nice open space which is surprisingly neat and free of clutter!

IMG_0687 (Custom)

On the desk to the left you can just make out one of the test control circuits for the hydroponics set-up outside.

IMG_0690 (Custom)

On the next floor is a floor plan! As you can see the floors get progressively smaller as they go up.

IMG_0689 (Custom)

The third floor is the kitchen, nothing too exciting, but very functional.

IMG_0693 (Custom)

The top floor contains a Hacker Hostel — Unfortunately we weren’t aware of it until after we booked a hostel in Brussels! It would be super handy though for those late nights though!

IMG_0694 (Custom)

Another lounge area, an extra bed, and some more cool projects…

IMG_0730 (Custom)

This is one of the coolest — it’s called the HSBXL ScanBot and it can scan books to PDF fast, easily, and without damaging the original book. Of course they would never abuse this copying ability…

IMG_0702 (Custom)

On the balcony this is the view of the city — there’s a few roofs in the way, but it’s a very nice look out.

IMG_0707 (Custom)

This is the antenna that connects to Belgium’s giant mesh network — more on that in my next post.

IMG_0710 (Custom)
More Club-Mate. It’s a staple in hackerspace drinks — haven’t you noticed?

Hackerspace Brussels has been one of the biggest spaces we have visited so far. Lots of space, lots of members, and lots of hacking. Great people, great times. They also let us know of another hackerspace nearby in Gent that we weren’t aware of, it’s called WhiteSpace and we might go check it out tomorrow!

Remember when Jeri Ellsworth and Rick Johnson were kicked out of Valve Corporation and no one knew what exactly happened?

Today, Jeri posted a Youtube video in which she reveals more of the story behind their combined AR / VR headset. She explains that GabeN allowed them to take their tech with them and they've been developing it further on their own since then.

Now they're taking it to Kickstarter:

Only ~270 EUR for the Pro Package incl. international shipping! And a few other interesting reward tiers.

We definitely need this stuff @metalab
