Fiber coupled fluorometer

Posted by aonomus on October 21, 2010

One of my more recent projects has been tinkering with fiber optics and sensitive detectors to make a fiber coupled fluorometer. Details to come (eventually).

Desert Bus for Hope Craft Along

Posted by aonomus on October 21, 2010

For those of you unfamiliar with the Canadian sketch comedy group Loading Ready Run, I suggest you get familiar. Their videos document comedic genius on the internet since before Youtube (yes, really) and have been working their way up in the world in the realm of internet media. For the past 3 years they have been hosting an event known as Desert Bus for Hope raising, money for the Childs Play charity by playing the most boring game in existance as a marathon:  a real time driving sim between Tuscon,AZ and Las Vegas,NV.

This coming year I decided to send them some laser cut acrylic, some of which is just because they are awesome, and one item for their DBFH craft along (where people make crafts, send them in, and they get auctioned off for charity). Below are some photos of 2 items I sent the group as gifts, and not shown is a similar DBFH acrylic plaque that will hopefully auction well.

 

Just a few hours ago the countdown officially started to the Desert Bus for Hope charity marathon, so gear up for some fun!
