Rotgutonix Booze Detector

Rotgutonix Booze Detector
Gear  |  Gadget
The Rotgutonix Booze Detector let you know what's you¡¯re really drinking. Rotgutonix has a built-in chemical sensor that can detect the chemical composition of 6 brands of liquor: Johnnie Walker, JB, DYC, Havana Club, Pampero and Brugal. They expect in future version that be able to analyze the chemical composition of over 20 well-known brands, mainly rum, whisky, gin, and vodka.
"Just dip the Rotgutonix pen into a glass of alcohol (no mixers, please), and let it soak for 20 seconds. The pen¡¯s liquid-crystal display will tell you if you¡¯re about to drink some real whiskey or some nasty rotgut, it¡¯ll tell you. While I don¡¯t usually frequent bars that serve things in a jug marked ¡°XXX¡±, apparently the serving of nasty bottom-shelf stuff in the wrong bottle is a more common practice in Europe than it is here in the States. As a matter of fact, product designer Emilio Alarc¨®n decided to create the gadget after he had a bad run-in with a couple of glasses of headache and nausea-inducing rotgut in Spain."

Sketch3D

Sketch3D

Sketch3D
Gear  |  Projects
Sketch-3D is a system that enable uses to draw in three dimensions using three dials and two-color eyeglasses.
"Sketch-3D is an interactive, integrated software/hardware system that enables users to create their own anaglyphic 3D drawings. By using a ubiquitous interface metaphor (the "Etch-A-Sketch "), Sketch-3D allows anyone to participate in generating stereoscopic imagery in a way that is simple and engaging. In addition to the personal experience, Sketch-3D can be scaled to work with any output device from large scale projection to plasma displays to an integrated LCD. This versatility allows for Sketch-3D to be tailored to fit a wide array of installation environments."
It uses two applications over a Pico-ITX x86 SBC, a Windows Embedded Standard device. The application essentially uses two software 3D "cameras " that simulate the human eyes. These two cameras then output graphics using an anaglyphic (Red / Cyan) multiply effect thus creating the illusion of the drawing being truly three dimensional.

Sticky Light

Gear  |  Projects
Wow, what's this? It looks cool! Sticky Light is a student project at the Department of Information Physics and Computing at the Ishikawa Komuro Laboratory of the University of Tokyo.
Sticky Light is a 3d tracking technology using a laser diode (low power), a pair of steering mirrors and a single non-imaging photodetector. The big difference to other tracking technologies is the fact that the Sticky Light doesn¡¯t use a camera or projector. So what could you do with? It can track the contour of objects and even augment real-time drawings. Or you could build games like air hockey or a pinball game.
The scanned material does not need to be just a black and white flat drawing; it can be virtually anything (a colorful tissue, a moving volume). What it's needed is that the scanned object present enough contrast for the "sticky light" to be able to know it's whereabouts, and then stick and/or follow the countours and shapes (see video re-drawing hand). It can even change its direction or modulate the speed as a function of the colors or even the distace from the object to the laser head.
