Late nights

2012/09/19

I enjoy my Nate’s, but it can make for some late nights. I hope you enjoy this one, I spent a lot of time trying to learn and better use the vector editing tools of Manga Studio. I’m getting a little better with it, but I still don’t know how to view the individual points in a vector and manipulate those points specifically. If I had that part down, I think I could fix up the scanning errors to look pretty nice!

I’m considering retrying to do some work on the iPad, but using a vector editing software. I’d still use Manga Studio to put it all together, but I think I could create the characters much easier.

What did we do before the internet?

I often wonder this, it’s simply amazing the things that people are capable of doing, and the internet allows us to share them, learn from them, and improve on them. Here’s a great example where a guy has created a glove for working with the XBox that allows you to do gestures very similar to those in the movie Minority Report.

Xbox ‘Power Glove’ Offers Precise, Kinect-Like Gesture Control

I suspect a lot of novel things like this always happened, I mean those of us that are engineers are always nerdy and doing nerdy projects at home. But with the internet, you have cases where someone says, “hey look what I can do with an accelerometer”, and then another says, “you do, if you apply this kind of math, you can determine this kind of complex movement very easily, and then another says, “you know, you could put this on a glove to recognize gestures”, and eventually you have what we see here in this video. Simply amazing!
