ex machina

mmmmmm, gadgets:
"This pen is chock full of electronics, and uses an unusual method of capturing handwriting. If you write on paper that is preprinted with a very special information-carrying grid (it looks to us humans like a slightly off-white tint of about 3% gray), the camera behind that transparent window uses the grid to track exactly where the ink is going. In fact, the pen also tracks its angle, it's velocity, and the pressure applied at any instant, all of which can be very useful for signature capture and validation. But this gets even more interesting -- the invisible grid is not just a standard grid, but one whose pattern allows the pen to recognize where in a half-continent-wide virtual sheet of paper it's currently writing.

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

[ about ]

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
