Maker Faire 2009 SF Bay Area this weekend!


I will be attending the 4th annual Maker Faire this weekend. What's Maker Faire? Put simply, Maker Faire is the "The World's Largest DIY Festival. A two-day, family-friendly event to MAKE, create, learn, invent, CRAFT, recycle, think, play and be inspired by celebrating arts, crafts, engineering, food, music, science and technology."

Here's a video of highlights from last year. A lot of really neat stuff. I will be shooting with my new Panasonic ZS3 camera, which can shoot HD Video, so I will be back with lots of footage.

If you'll be going, drop me a line! pocky @ ani-pock.net
For more info, go to the Maker Faire Website.

Transforming Mouse is Actually Pretty Cool

Sometimes I get emails sent to my A-P mail of things people would like me to post in the blogs here.

Some people I know. Most I don't. Almost all of it is spam.
Typically, even 80% of those emails are in a different language than I can understand.

But, just before I deleted one, in Spanish no less, I took a quick peek at what I was getting rid of.

It was pretty cool.

Pictured at the left you see the Ravage Transforming Mouse by Trypticon!

The mouse actually works, as a computer mouse, with most Windows and Mac computers, but as a bonus, can unfold to become a sweet dinosaur!

The mice are available online for around around USD $60.

Read more at Techfresh, as well as see the transforming USB drive!

The Future of the Ani-pockers


I am curious as to what the members of ani-pock would like their future profession to be. So if you would leave a comment about what you would like to be when you grow up, and why that would be awesome. As for me, i am going to become a programmer. While i was growing up i wasn't all that sure about what i wanted to be, but when i become a part of my schools robotics team it all became clear. Programming is something that i love, and look forward to doing in the futer. :P i would really appreciate it if you would leave a comment. Thanks in advance

AP Friends Video 3!?

I just realized that I had another video editing software other than Windows Movie Maker and I dared myself, making another Friends Video, with it. This time, I took advantage of the widescreen feature and the pan-in feature. I never realized how exciting video editing could get.

May Member Posts!

Forgive me for the lateness on this one.
I have been bedridden because of illness.

But once again, it is time for another new member quote list!

Submit your quotes here!

Everyone that submits a quote this month will be rolled over to the member list next month and everyone who did not will get placed in the member archives.
Don't get bumped off the memberlist because you didn't submit a quote or a picture, post one now!

Don't worry, we will remind you again before this month is up! And, as always, you will get the opportunity to add your name again if you submit a quote next month or in the future, but forgot to this month.

Remember: If you have to say something about a Pocker, say something nice!
