Just some of my wee morning thoughts for you all <3 Hannah
“A psychologist walked around a room while teaching stress management to an audience. As she raised a glass of water, everyone expected they’d be asked the “half empty or half full” question. Instead, with a smile on her face, she inquired: “How heavy is this glass of water?”
Answers called out ranged from 8oz to 20oz.
She replied, “The absolute weight doesn’t matter. It depends on how long you hold it. If I hold it for a minute, its not a problem. If I hold it for an hour, I’ll have an ache in my arm. If I hold it for a day, my arm will feel numb and paralyzed. In each case the weight of the glass doesn’t change, but the longer I hold it, the heavier it becomes.”
She continued, “The stresses and worries in life are like that glass of water. Think about them for a while and nothing happens. Think about them for a bit longer and they begin to hurt. And if you think about them all day long, you will feel paralyzed - incapable of doing anything.”
Remember to put the glass down.”
This is so important.
Short, sweet, and simple demonstration of the motors of a 3D printer playing music:
NO PRINTER WHERE HARMED DURING THE MAKING OF THIS HACK!
(however this doesn’t mean that yours won’t be, use at own risk)
At art hack day in Stockholm 2013 and using a Lulzbot 3D-printer I tried to visualize
different classical musical pieces.
The project explores the alternative uses of 3D-printers. It’s being used to create
unique art by printing classical pieces of music while at the same time acting as
an instrument and performing the music itself.
The stepper motors controlling the movement can be run at different speeds,
the speed decides the pitch of the sound and makes it possible for the motors to make music.
