Whimsical Technology

Ken Kawamoto has created a quite delightful device.


The device is capable of downloading information about upcoming weather off the internet, which it then translates into a variety of modes to replicate sunshine, clouds, rain, and even lighting.


The Coolest thing is…

Kawamoto made an early version of the device available as a free open-source project called OpenTempescope so you can try building your own, but a consumer version is planned for Kickstarter later this year.

The First (of many) Author Interviews

This weekend

I met up with The Boredom Break crew and filmed a Shivering Snivels segment! BoredomBreak is a great series of Web shows reviewing and discussing the latest, and greatest, in “nerd” and young adult entertainment. Hayley Katherine Briggs, my interviewer, and the entire team were professional and delightful! 

Stick around till the end for a little PG-13 material ;] or don’t!
