I remember my mom telling me about these new hormones that could help kids grow taller about 20 years ago now you can do it with a simple (or should I say risky) surgery.

Only 4,000 people in the world have done this so far so there is no telling what kinds of side effects there are. If any, you should expect some pain when you age past 50.

Tent + Hammock = Tentmock!

Well this ain’t a real tent and a real hammock but still, it does plenty of both.

In order to collapse the unit, the four pins must be pulled out so the supporting rods can slide up to the closed position utilizing the four scissor joints, two on each side. Once in this position, the pins can be put back into place for locking. The nylon pieces of the floor, roof, and sides all fold into the unit, eliminating the need to remove them.

DIY HACK – luscious electric delight (L.E.D.)

This is freakin’ awesome!

We started experimenting with “row/column scanning”. This term refers to how the columns of shared anodes(+) and rows of shared cathodes(-) in an LED matrix can be quickly turned on and off to control a single LED within the matrix. Because the number of LEDs with in a matrix will always be fewer than the total number of rows and columns, it is more efficient to quickly address the columns and rows than each individual LED. We first soldered a 4×4 matrix
