It’s Memon Mondays!
This newsletter is my experiment to share all the cool things I find during the week and share them with my like-minded friends.
Adam Savage’s Rickshaw Pulled by Boston Dynamic's Spot Robot
Hacking my arm prosthesis to plug into a synth: thought-controlled music — This is absolutely one of the coolest hacks I have seen. This guy hacks his prosthetic arm to connect it to a synth and control it using signals from muscles. This also reminds me of an older project me and Mujtaba did: We developed a very cheap armband to detect MMG signals, which we then sent to a neural network and captured/recognized few gestures. The hardware consisted of pre-amplified microphones.
Gears — A really great blog post about mechanical gears. I really liked the interactivity and visualizations on this blog. Also check out other posts on their blog.
Why Google Did Android
Google’s sixth employee made this video tour of the office in 1998.
This interview with Wozniak has many lessons.
Check out OpenChakra, an open-source visual editor for React. It’s a cool demo, however I don’t see myself using it as of now, it’s not there yet.
An SSH server that knows who you are — a nice demo of how an SSH server can derive your name, email, etc from your public SSH keys.
GAME OF THE WEEK
This casual indie game I recently came across on Twitter: Bad North. A brutal real-time strategy game. Defend your island kingdom against a horde of Viking invaders. I am playing it on an iPad and have tried it on Switch. It’s fun on both!
—————————————————SONG OF THE WEEK
Shadow Of The Day - Linkin Park [YouTube]
From their third album Minutes to Midnight. This album was sadly the start of their downfall.
That’s it friends! Have a great week. Be safe, make good choices, and get enough rest.
