Gunn Photography Services Info | Atlanta Aerial Photography

Matt Gunn is an Atlanta base photographer that's doing RC-based aerial photography.

"But only in the last 5 years have relatively inexpensive radio-controlled helicopters become large and stable enough to carry the weight of the heavy digital SLR cameras. With advanced automatic stabilization systems and GPS positioning, a purpose-built aerial photography helicopter can hover virtually motionless while a camera operator looks through a monitor and sees what the camera sees. This allows for extremely precise photography at a fraction of the cost."

Check out his site... he's got some interesting detail and really nice example of what RC-based Aerial Photography can do.

Spray-on liquid glass is about to revolutionize almost everything

Spray-on liquid glass is about to revolutionize almost everything: "Spray-on liquid glass is transparent, non-toxic, and can protect virtually any surface against almost any damage from hazards such as water, UV radiation, dirt, heat, and bacterial infections. The coating is also flexible and breathable, which makes it suitable for use on an enormous array of products.

Liquid glass spray is perhaps the most important nanotechnology product to emerge to date. It will be available in DIY stores in Britain soon, with prices starting at around £5 ($8 US)."

Sous Vide Immersion Cooker — DIY How-to from Make: Projects

Sous Vide Immersion Cooker — DIY How-to from Make: Projects: "Behold, the $75 DIY Sous Vide Heating Immersion Circulator! By scrapping together parts from eBay and Amazon, I created a portable device that heats and circulates water while maintaining a temperature accurate within 0.1�C. And unlike the SousVide Supreme, it mounts easily onto larger containers, up to about 15 gallons, for greater cooking capacity."

PCB Order | DorkbotPDX

PCB Order | DorkbotPDX: "I've been coordinating a monthly circuit board order. By combining dozens of small boards into large panels, and doing a lot of volume, we're able to get the costs down to levels that are more hobbyist friendly.

It's $5 per square inch for three copies of your two layer design. So, a 2 square inch design would cost $10, and you'll get three copies of your board. Shipping within the US is included, and there are no setup fees. Your boards will be mailed within 9 days of the order deadline."
