Security Player 001 (Beta)

Thursday, June 29th, 2006

A few weeks ago Digg had a post on how to google search for exposed webcameras. The cameras typically had pan, tilt, zoom and focus control. Being the Jitter nerd that I am, I immediatly wrote a quick patch to pull in and control a webcam via a jitter patch. It worked, but jit.uldl has […]

Evolutionary Graphics… Spawner and Spore

Monday, June 26th, 2006

Marlon pointed me to Spawner – an genetic/evolutionary graphics toolkit by Derek Gerstman, which is now out for Jitter (Windows only for now). The source is available, so I am attempting to compile it for OS X (yeah right.. like i’ll get that to work..). Spawner can produce some pretty nice imagery if you are […]

Quartz Composer + Jitter for real

Sunday, June 18th, 2006

Quartz Composer < ---> MAX/MSP Jitter Cocoa interface is a cocoa app that lets one open up a Quartz Composer patch and send it via local (or non) UDP Sockets (via OSC) to Jitter. Pretty goddamn impressive. Unfortunately I do not see a download link, but it looks real enough. This could open up a […]

Visor 1.2 is out

Sunday, June 18th, 2006

Ive been coding up some nice additions and fixes in Visor. Alcor from blacktree (the makers of the amazing quicksilver alternative ui to Mac OS X) has accepted my code into the main SVN source. Fun. My first real world cocoa code is floating out there and working – and people like my changes. There […]


Sunday, June 11th, 2006

Update: Ive actually edited the code and the icon a bit. The terminal session now ‘slides’ out as it slides in, and the icon is more.. ahem.. terminal-y. Original Code and all of the hard work is still by Alcor.. Heres the updated Visor.bundle Im trying to no longer post about Mac related stuff, but […]

Wifi Video Glitch

Monday, June 5th, 2006

I saw this today and was a bit annoyed. I recently purchased an Icom IR-3 and the DD9000 seems to have a greater upper range to capture 2.4Ghz RF video (the Icom can only capture channels 1 2 and sometimes 3, not 4 or above). This seems like a much better solution for picking up […]
