So the folks over at Hackerbot Labs have a cool project they brought to Toorcamp, a giant FAA Approved Laser in order to measure the diffuse reflections of the atmosphere using a distributed array of semi-autonomous sensors. It's built with twenty-four 1 Watt lasers taken from a Casio DLP projector. The laser is housed on top of a yurt, which contains the controls and cooling system.

I think this was an interesting quote.. "..A $2.5 billion mission -- a cost that is not that much more than what NBC paid for the Olympics -- was celebrated for its ability to inspire an entire country, not to mention a planet.". There where over 4 million people watching it last night on the ustream feed. It was fantastic. And then to see how fast the pictures (oh boy 64x64!) started to come back. Brilliant. Very cool to see things work that well.
Jumping RobotsPosted by Krux on Sunday April 15, 2012 @ 01:07pm

Sand Flea is an 11-lb robot with one trick up its sleeve: Normally it drives like an RC car, but when it needs to it can jump 30 feet into the air. An onboard stabilization system keeps it oriented during flight to improve the view from the video uplink and to control landings. Current development of Sand Flea is funded by the The US Army's Rapid Equipping Force.

I think this is kind of a hack..living 10 weeks underground in that little mine.. finally getting out through that little hole and the crazy tools that NASA built. Very cool. Glad that wasn't me.. glad it had /is having a good ending.
Home Brew CNC Laser CutterPosted by Krux on Friday April 16, 2010 @ 11:43am

This is pretty cool. A guy decided that the price on laser cutters is stupidly expensive, and he could probably build his own machine, less than just the tax on a commercial machine. I figure this will be my next project after building the Mendel RepRap 3D printer.

Ok.. new topic. Loopback addresses. Seeing that we have a network inspection coming up, there's a number of CAT II and CAT III findings regarding having snmp/syslog/snmp/etc coming from loopback addresses. We aren't using loopbaks now, we do single in/out routes, statically with only one AS at one site and the rest are static routes back to the provider so it's not like source/destination ips change for management. We have lots of extra /24's that I can use to figure out a scheme to address the devices, but I'm more curious as to how the routing should be done. We aren't doing any out-of-band or tunneling the inband over and site-2-site, but that could be setup also. So.. does anyone use loopbacks for management? Do you use 10.xxx.yyy.zzz addresses with site2site tunnels or routable /32 addresses with lots of static route maps?

Hey dude, I am right there with you on some of the hows and whys of your deletion plans, but was curious if you would be interested in continuing the conversation here. I'm actually quite interested in what volt's comments, as he dropped the hint that he had something to say. Besides that, this is one of the few places where we can talk about shit like this without having someone go psycho nutbag about it... except maybe krux... because of his mormon roots and all
