Dream of Robot

I dreamt of a white woman, kind of in her 50s, or younger, little bit puffy skinned.

She had put a robot in the oven to bake it - not for eating but for finishing.
I did not see what kind of robot it was, it might not be the geometric robot that I am making
But suddenly the oven door flew open, a whiff of chemical or burnt toxic substance came out of the oven and killed her right there.  She was muffled by the toxic substance.

Then I woke up.
This white woman got killed by these robots she made.  She had not paid attention to the airing air change condition of the room.  She died.

Shocking dream.

I woke up, and thought, was this white woman me?
Or does it have some strange meaning?

I try to find out from the dream book.

Today I bought a Borot Avatar from Magnum.  A pink robot machine that you wear as an avatar.
But this avatar has a driver seat - you could put your own pilot inside.  I bought it through gacha, and received a black cat - black cat pilot.  Which i will not use

I use a Sunday Robot as pilot.  The thinker Sunday Robot.
Here is a picture of the Borot w Sunday robot.

https://3dprint.com/193097/careers-in-3d-printing/


It’s not just a fad. Explore how people are using 3D printers in their careers and why it’s important to teach the next generation about this growing technology.

Dr. Alex Chee shows 3D printed surgical models at Maker Faire NY 2017 [Image via MatterHackers]
When speaking with teachers about their efforts to bring 3D design and 3D printing programs into their K-12 classrooms, the one pervasive question is still – why? Teachers try to get funding from administration and are asked – why do you need a 3D printer? Administration springs funding on teachers earmarked for 3D printers, and teachers ask – why do I need to take time out of my classroom to teach how to use a 3D printer? Teachers introduce 3D printing to their classrooms and the parents ask – why are you wasting my child’s time with some “fad”?
Answer – preparation for future jobs. And current jobs. ALL the jobs. Medicine, video games, architecture, manufacturing, product design, special effects for TV and movies, automotive, entrepreneurial efforts we’ve never even heard of (like desktop 3D printers themselves were in 2011) and more all require some form of 3D modeling skills. And the tool of choice to fabricate those models in reality – prototype or final product – is 3D printing.
Teaching simple 3D modeling software like Tinkercad in schools not only prepares students to broaden the scope of job opportunities they might not have considered before, but the practice of designing something in CAD software also covers core STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math) standards that need to be taught anyway.
Engagement is the unique factor here. Teachers need to work especially hard with the current generation to grab their attention and keep them engaged. Brains are changing. There are more tactile learners and kids that have various issues with paying attention than ever before (even if that issue is being distracted by the cell phone in their pocket.) Incorporating 3D design and 3D printing into the lessons teachers need to teach anyway makes the lesson stick and the classroom time more fun.
Read the full article, including examples of vocations you may not have thought about before which require 3D modeling and 3D printing skills — medicine, architecture, manufacturing, product design, special effects for TV and movies, anthropology, automotive, entrepreneurial — at MatterHackers.

new-eu-standard-ppe-forestry-high-visibility-orange-bright-pink

New EU standard for PPE Forestry: from high visibility orange to bright pink


The personal protective equipment for the forestry industry, aka PPE Forestry, is now becoming even safer. Drawing on the results of a major study, a new standard governing work clothing will come into force on 1 May 2016; high visibility orange will be changing to bright pink. Millions of foresters and forestry workers are now facing a race against time to equip themselves for the new standard.

Study: pink is the most effective high visibility colour

Over the years, the effectiveness of high visibility orange, the colour used until now, has been questioned time and again by industry experts. Professionals from northern Europe have complained that clothing with segments of high visibility orange, sometimes also in combination with green, is not sufficiently conspicuous in autumnal forests. For this reason the EU Commission for Forestry and Forest Work has spent the last three years conducting a major study throughout the European Union. As part of the study, both cognition tests and adrenaline measurements were performed on over 10,000 professional forestry workers.
The neuropsychologists behind the tests discovered that the conspicuousness of the high visibility colour used to date truly is unsatisfactory in the forest. “The most important thing about a high visibility colour is the contrast,” explained the commission’s chair Mr. Jack Lumber. “Especially in northern Europe, where the leaves turn orange in autumn, the colour tone currently used is just not effective enough.” To find a solution to this problem, a number of alternative high visibility colours were trialled with test subjects. The key aspect for the researchers was how easily the colour could be seen, even over larger distances. Only one colour caused adrenaline levels to rise significantly in the test subjects, indicating a strong sense of awareness. The assessments of the subjects themselves backed up these findings and led to the only possible conclusion: bright pink is the most easily seen and elicits the required level of caution.

Bright pink is to become mandatory from May 2016

The finding of the study has now been codified for industry application in a new EU standard. To improve safety in the forest immediately, forestry workers must wear protective clothing with segments in bright pink (RGB 255,3,206) from May 2016. From this date high visibility orange will no longer be permitted. Furthermore, the impact will be accentuated through the use of neon or fluorescent dyes.

#1 Contemporary Chinese Design

Hulu shaped electric universal adapter

Hulu is a mystical container a taoist vehicle - magic shape, where an entire world could be contained.
Its a poetic shape especially for electricity.
How did a designer convince the manufacturer to make this fantasy shape?
I have never seen one before, this one I found at a remote farmers market.
This is the China that I like to visit.  Something somewhere someone enabled an idea to come to reality.  And it is so humble and small, but its done.
The colors are quite local too.  Beige color and pale peacock blue. and the font used, the designer definited just did it to his liking. The combination is not your normal "designer" look, nor the execution, we could see little unsmooth surface.  The letters used is almost like a careful hand writing and not our industrial high precision "arty" fonts.

Altogether it has a slight "simple innocent" look.  Adorable.
Somebody got an idea, and it was granted at the factory and its been made.

I wonder if its a common design, you could buy easily?

Primitive Log Cabin Build (in Forest) step by step, beautiful wood work



http://www.theshelterblog.com/primitive-log-cabin-build-forest/

Primitive Log Cabin Build in Forest

Very interesting from A to z, how to build a log cabin from clearing, transporting logs from one spot to the clearing (using belts), cutting down trees, with an axe! Just a few hits and the tree comes down. Very informative. Beautiful log cabin.

Building a log cabin completely alone has been my dream since selling my last cabin 15 years ago.I start this video by cutting down cedar trees in winter and end with a standing log cabin in the Canadian Wilderness, up to the top of the walls. In this video, I go into more detail to show exactly how I am doing it. Learn how I cut the notches, lift the logs into place by myself and start preparing my house to live a life like Dick Proenneke did in Alaska. Get prepared for the apocalypse by building your own primitive off grid log cabin, tiny house in the woods of wilderness Canada. Learn how to work alone and build your own home using nothing but hand tools - no power tools. Be a modern day lumberjack and outdoorsman capable of self reliant living. Create your own homestead, starting with a tiny home.

Bot or Not?

Remarks:
On this screen shot you see, the interactive links to the bot stuff and the graphics, old style etching.
Why do they use this and not more computerised looking interface?
Because they need the old fashion poetic old tech to make it warm and human.

Could you imagine what a teenager design would look like for this page?

Times Haiku
NY Times Haiku machine:
https://www.theverge.com/2013/4/28/4279366/tracking-rise-of-computer-generated-poetry

Times Haiku is a collection of what they are calling “serendipitous poetry,” derived from stories that have made the homepage of NYTimes.com. The haiku live on a Tumblr hosted by the Times. Harris built a script that mines stories for haiku-friendly words and then reassembles them into poetry. (For those of you that may have zoned out in class, haiku are comprised of three lines with, in order, five, seven, and five syllables.) The code checks words against an open source pronunciation dictionary, which handily also contains syllable counts.
“Sometimes it can be an ordinary sentence in context, but pulled out of context it has a strange comedy or beauty to it,” Harris said.
Harris was inspired by Haikuleaks, a similar project that found poetry in the cache of diplomatic cables released by WikiLeaks in 2010. The backbone of that project was an open source program called Haiku Finder, which crawls through text to generate haiku. The program was built in Python; Harris made his own version in Ruby on Rails.
The result, much like @nytimes_ebooks, is bizarre, quirky, and kind of zen. The haiku have a strange way of getting at the heart of a story, or teasing out interesting fragments from an article. “There’s something appealing about finding these snippets of text, these turns of phrase and pulling them out,” Harris said. “You find it compelling and it drives you to read the article that it came from.” (Think of it as a more lexicographically strict version of Paul Ford’s SavePublishing.)
In its own poetic way, Times Haiku will be another access point for Times stories, said Marc Lavallee, assistant editor for interactive news at the Times. “If someone sees the site, or the image of an individual haiku and shares it on Tumblr, and it gets them to think about who we are and what we do, or gives them a moment of pause, I think we’ve succeeded in a way,” Lavallee said.
Lexi Mainland, social media editor for the Times, said they wanted the poems to be able to stand on their own and be readily sharable. That’s why the haiku are actually images, which fits well with the aesthetic of Tumblr, she said. Outside of Tumblr, the Times will promote the haiku through the paper’s flagship Twitter account.
That the Times has the ability to build a haiku bot isn’t surprising. But whybuild a haiku bot? “A lot of the projects we work on here are these incredibly big heaves, which are very, very gratifying,” said Mainland. “But you crave these smaller projects, which are just as valuable.” Similarly, projects like the haiku bot may seem silly on the surface, but the underlying code, the use of natural language processing, or other components could be valuable to future projects, Lavallee said.
It helps that the project came at little expense to the Times — Harris put it together on his own during a fit of post-election letdown. Harris had been working on projects connected to the presidential race for over a year, and after election day suddenly found himself with idle hands. He wrote the code in November and began monitoring what it was spitting out. After showing it to Mainland, Lavallee, and other editors, they gave the project a green light. Designer Heena Ko and software developer Anjali Bhojani gave the haiku their distinctive appearance for Tumblr. (Those lines you see running askew of the text of the haiku? The length is computer generated, based on the meter of the first line of text.)
As whimsical as a haiku bot or a spammy-sounding Twitter bot might be, both are efforts to find new uses for the Times’ vast collection of work. “It’s just this large corpus of text that gets very dizzing to look through,” Harris said.
The Times may also have a soft spot for artwork inspired by the written word. Anyone who has visited the lobby of The New York Times Building has likely seen Moveable Type, an algorithm-backed art installation that displays fragments of Times content across 560 display screens.
