Well, we survived the skeleton Tuesday, now it's time for Cool Links Wednesday:

Mathematically Correct Breakfast: How to Slice a Bagel into Two Linked Halves
Never thought math and bagels went together so well! While I am no mathematician at any rate, the intellectual stimualtion of creating a two-twist moebius strip, you can get slightly more cream cheese on, because the surface area is bigger.
15 Sorting Algorithms in 6 Minutes
Can 15 sorting algorithms be interesting? Over 5 minutes? I didn't think so either, but this is pretty cool.
T8 the Bio Inspired 3D Printed Spider Octopod Robot

Now we are a bit less skeleton. That doesn’t mean we put on weight, that means that some of us decided to return from vacations to fancy places. I kinda liked the skeletons though. They helped at the warehouse a lot, donated their portion of ice cream in favour of the starving and let me use their femur bone for a coat hanger...

Golem at Calgary Comic Expo

Solarbotics has worked on a good many interesting costuming projects, but few have been as unique as Shannon Chappell's Rock Golem. Shannon did a fabulous job repurposing electronics for the Golem, and if you're trying to do the same, be ready for some major dumpster-diving. Alternately, since we first worked on the Golem, we've been […]
