HDRI : High Dynamic Range Imaging-
For those of us who have not heard of this. HDRI is a photographing technique that allows greater dynamic range image output. Differant than normal photograph exposures you come out with a contrasty image. HDRI takes advantage of the brightest brights and the darkest darks through various exposures of the camera, then divides the series of exposured images up, then outputing the information into a final rendering-

these 6 images were all taken at differant exposure settings.

all six images are combined taking the darkest darks, and the brightest brights. giving the end result.

PS. i just figured this could be a good idea for taking images of your I.D projects- (products)

Inductive Charging.

I've been hearing alot about inductive charging lately. The idea can be useful taking into consideration upon designing. -- To me, I think it's very interesting how it works, Ac power is transferred through a magnetic field from point A to point B, electro currents transfers through inductive coils located on both sides of the spectrum, a magnetic flux induces an alternate current that crosses through the magnetic field and transfers to second inductive coil, resulting in transfer of AC current and converting to DC current and into storage. Whats very interesting is this all happens sort of wirlessly you can say- there is no metal contacts or an exposed electrical current working here. It works through an invisible field making it seemingly safe and easily handled- you dont' really have to worry about electical shortage, water contacts, and dangerous exposed surfaces. Its magic all happens through a magnetic field transferring currents. I really think this is something to look into for later designs.

Another examples of this type of charging are high end electical toothbrush.

Superbowl Sunday-

Well it maybe wednesday but i havn't gotten time to post since. I was so weirded out sunday, I had to work so really didn't watch the game- what was weird for me was- at work there was absolutely noboday- i mean nobody at all- I realize how much hype is put upon this football game and how much people celebrate it- odd thought..

i guess the first blog posting has to be something interesting i've found and would like to expand on and examine a little more. We had to get pictures and suggest what is wildly wrong or intresting bout it-- but so far i havn't ran into anything too exciting. The most exciting thing that happen to me was I got pulled over by a police officer that followed me for a good 25 almost 30 mins-- funny thing was, he followed me for awhile just to find a good reason to pull me over, i had an oregon tint, where im originally from, an a oregon plate- I just told him i was from oregon to visit, I got let go easily. thats about it.
