Creative coding project by Jason Lin can convert text into 3D geometric drawings, turning writing into a visual grammar - video embedded below:
My latest Processing project!
… I came up with this idea because my last project used an excel sheet and received insane amounts of numbers and data.
This time I wanted to use a text file and receive insane amounts of words and letters and most importantly, punctuation!
I had seen pictures of “sentence maps” before where a line was created and it got longer with every word and made a turn every time the sentence ended. Colors would change with every character or some other factor.Basically I wanted to take this idea and make it HUGE. I wanted an entire 3D explore-able environment.
The video explains what I chose to do for every single type of punctuation mark.

Fashion remix project from gokinjo-monozukuri captures existing fashion with 3D photogrammetry, processed into polygons with modelling software, and put together onto digitally printed fabric - video embedded below:
The process of “Computed Copy” is as follows. First, scan the garment and get the 3D images of it. Second, make flat patterns with printed images by using a software which can do this automatically, and finally put the parts by sewing them.
Although there is a traditional way of designing flat patterns which considers the movement of the body and characteristics of the material, computers design it in a totally different way, because they recognize the 3D shape as a polygon which is a collective form of flat faces.
Our purpose for this “Computed Copy” is not only to make some distortion which humans cannot produce, but also to make garments which are not just “copy” and have the alternative creativity. By removing humans’ arbitrariness as much as possible from the process of copying designs, and by letting computers do it, we can create a new kind of designing system.
In the future, we think that it will be possible to copy a garment only with the image files on the internet without scanning actual things, thanks to the rapid development of 3D technology (scanning, modeling, and printing) and a flood of images on the internet. We expect that this work will be the fastest automated way of copying the designs as the final destination of fast fashion.
Ok man, super stupid question here! Ready? Ok... What is Captain Americas role in the Avengers? What is so special about him? Is he just a famous war propaganda cartoon? I get it he represents patriotism I'm a patriot myself I served five years in the Marine Corps. I just don't get what makes him qualify for the avengers is all. Thanks!
This is not a stupid question. Despite the fact that he’s been in 3 major movies, some people still only think of Captain America as some guy who dresses in an American flag.
You’re not wrong. When he was created in the mid-40s, Cap was one of the biggest and most obvious American propaganda figures in comics. But then WWII ended and so did his popularity. Then Marvel ingeniously brought him back in the 60s and he became an allegory for those unsure of their place in society. Similar to the situation some veterans go through when returning to civilian life. He became the consummate man out of time, he struggled with the demons from his past and yet found a way to thrive in a new era.
Yes, Cap is a patriot but the most important thing about Cap’s character is he’s not blindly patriotic or loyal. He does what he believes to be the right thing and isn’t influenced by the government or agencies he’s worked with or for. He’s a boy scout and has been a long-time symbol of freedom, patriotism and hope, very much like Superman. However (I’m sure a lot of Superman fans would disagree) Superman is a loyal and blind ally of the US government, while Cap follows his own moral compass and what he believes to be the American way.
Steve Rogers has disavowed his alter-ego more than once when his views had differed with American ideals or US government actions. He’s even led an underground movement that opposed government sanctions.
Now to answer your question. Cap’s role on The Avengers is defacto leader. He’s the guy almost every member goes to for advice and leadership. That’s how it’s been ever since he was revived in issue #4. It’s hard not to follow a guy who always seems to do the right thing and has gotten himself out of tough situations despite the odds against him. If you’ve seen The Avengers, then you saw in the film how Cap directed the Avengers to their locations and gave them their instructions. That’s what he does best. He’s a master strategist. He’s also an expert on most forms of hand to hand combat, most weapons and have you seen the way the throws that shield?
Sorry this answer went on so long, I just have a soft spot for Captain America. He’s one of my favorite comic heroes. I know some have made a big deal about Sam taking over the role (which he’s done before) but I have a hard time getting upset about it. I’ve always seen Cap as similar to Spider-Man in that it doesn’t matter who’s under the costume. What matters is their heroic spirit and determination.
Thanks for you’re question, joels-shity-blog, and thank you for your service.

Besok kan 17 Agustus, HUT RI ke-69! Ceritanya sempet denger ada pandawa 5 di tv… saya kaget, pas udh nonton shock!
Sebenernya ini udh dr bbrp bulan lalu (bareng sama yg GatotKaca), tapi malu krn berantakan gambarnya, ujung2nya upload (tapi sok sok-an silhouette).
