Automated Book Scanner & Pasta Ponchos
I've mentioned before that Jeff Duntemann is one of my favorite bloggers, and I thought I'd show why I enjoy it by including a few recent links he's talked about:
- http://www.geocities.jp/takascience/lego/fabs_en.html is a movie of a fully automated book scanner built from a flat bed scanner and some legos. Put a book on it, it flips the pages and scans them. Sounds a little dumb, but if you watch it it sure looks like it works. He didn't build it, just publicized it, and how could I not?
- http://www.contrapositivediary.com/?p=280 covers his invention of the Pasta Poncho to keep the spaghetti sauce off of his shirt. I can easily see Billy Mays selling these on TV soon.
- http://jeff-duntemann.livejournal.com/180915.html is his thoughts on being a contrarian (which interests me as I am occasionally contrary) and he defines it in part as never being certain. Take a chance and read it.
