The Flyer

from The Public Domain Review:

In 1585 the Englishman John White, governor of one of the very first North American colonies, made a series of exquisite watercolour sketches of the native Algonkin people alongside whom the settlers would try to live. Benjamin Breen explores the significance of the sketches and their link to the mystery of what became known as the “Lost Colony”.

I’m so happy right now. After HOURS of bashing my head against any hard surface that was at hand, I finally figured out how to get Sonic Ether’s Unbelievable Shaders mod working.

SO HAPPY.

Descriptive Camera, by Matt Richardson

from the website:

“The Descriptive Camera works a lot like a regular camera—point it at subject and press the shutter button to capture the scene. However, instead of producing an image, this prototype outputs a text description of the scene. Modern digital cameras capture gobs of parsable metadata about photos such as the camera’s settings, the location of the photo, the date, and time, but they don’t output any information about the content of the photo. The Descriptive Camera only outputs the metadata about the content.”
