Cheap NYC Whiteboard

Whiteboards are pretty great. They save you a lot of time, you draw the connections between something or how it might work – whatever the flow is and right away you can usually many flaws in your logic or gaps to fill. If you’re like me, then you’ll still have many more once you implement it 🙂 – however, at least i can catch a few early mistakes.

More importantly they make whatever task you’re working on seem very important. After all it’s on a written on the board isn’t it?

Whiteboard NYC-Style

Living in NYC you learn to cobble together various things and make something out of it because space here is so limited. So this is a “whiteboard” I created using an acrylic picture frame I bought from Muji. It isn’t the cheapest but it comes with some nice hanging hooks, and two sides. (I’m not using the second side, or the hooks since I used that half for something else aleady).

I’m going to buy another one, and double the whiteboard space. It will be like buying a new harddrive, whenever you get one you, “think ok now i have ALL the space i’ll ever need.”

If you notice the walls, you can tell I live in NYC East Village where landlord’s live by the motto:
“Why fix, when you can apply more paint!”

I also bought some dry-erase makers with an eraser from CVS for 8 dollars. So total is ~25 dollars.

My friend told me I should do videos for Chemical Brothers, and linked me to this – which i thought was so amazing.

I’m going to make something with that audio, it reminds me a lot of this thing i made.
Except that theirs is WAY better

So i’ve been doing some face tracking stuff…. and i accidentally created some pretty linewaves.
I think I will try to combine the two. My face tracking stuff is still so primitive, but we’ll see what i can fake.
