With a little help from the internets I taught my self the basics of Grasshopper (Rhino plugin) this weekend for the purpose of analyzing a complex tower geometry. In the course of my research I came across this posting, illustrating a way to flex file parameters with ultrasonic sensors hooked up to arduino boards. Kind of cool. Thought you guys would be interested.

So I attended last night's get together and learned what a stepper motor is and helped Kam fix one that was jammed (good clean fun), but the highlight of the evening for my own personal self was when Ian Applegate showed up riding a bright green vintage Schwinn Sprint wearing an Evel Kneivel motorcycle helmet AND, under the helmet, Dominique Pinon wrap around shades (VR glasses) that were electronically broadcasting to his eyeballs what his handheld camera (in his hand at that very moment) was seeing.
