Alfalfa Cam

As Martine was sprouting some [wikipop]alfalfa[/wikipop] seeds I borrowed some to make a [wikipop]time-lapse[/wikipop] movie of their sprouting. You can watch the live updates on the Alfalfa Cam page as we capture individual images to build the time-lapse movie or just come back here:

Martine says “A watched alfalfa seed never sprouts”.

I watched a video by the late [wikipop]Benoit Mandelbrot[/wikipop] while the girls were busy painting

Animating Dot

The good people at Aardman have created a tiny animation using a Nokia phone and an adaptation of the CellScope technology originally created to give a microscope function to the phone’s camera for medical purposes.

How they did it…

The end result…

Wow!
