I really want to make an invisibility cloak just for the hell of it.
So you stitch together a weave of 360 cameras with blind spots intersected with oleds (or basic leds) that run cool but fill in the blanks of the intersection. Then it’s a matter of making cones of light around the cameras and cycling them fast enough so that they both capture the side video of the material to show through the other side while hiding the lenses. Shadows are more difficult, but I wonder if a material that’s reflective but dulling in nature would offer a shadow at all or not, since it’s both reflective and absorbing at the same time, can we make it so they cancel one another out and through no shadow by projecting 12 o’clock light and draping it to the ground. It would have to be woven because it would need to cover any shape.
So how to we go about cross referencing the 180 to 180º displacement by having half one camera on one side split around the shape stitched semi around the shape so that one camera negates its self on the other side. Which probably means pairing the cameras at first until smaller cameras can be made and higher definition can be created and more angles of reduction can be created. Let’s start with a flat surface:
So you end up with a mesh of cameras with 180º views arranged in a chain mail view that can be vertical or at an angle if stitched correctly. Once its made you warp it around an object and, say a cylinder for ease of production, add a controller that stitches the videos in real time and displays the opposite matrix of video on the other side and the faster the processor the better it’ll hide the material. The problem is getting a lot of 360º cameras cheaply, a controller I can work with, and meshes of leds that should probably be painted black and then cleaned to allow only the light through that’s needed unless a new form of smoked led is created that diffuses light except at the point of being viewed.
Once static is done properly, you add in a second controller with proper leds for waving of fabric by analyzing the light coming into the system so it can dull in real time.
If you want smoothest production, you would need to get them to move in real time so that they could handle an angle then mathematically cross stitch them properly.
Couldn’t we use a Möbius strip design through magnetic fields in a vacuum and magnetic guard rails around both circumferences to make them orientable? It would double the travel surface area meaning up to x times the speeds possible as long as the magnetic fields were maintained unevenly or not on a rigid surface to allow the möbius time to “jiggle” a little until collision while still being held in place by the magnetic fields in play. It also means the cooling would be almost halfed because you could cool a smaller denser area.
First you would need to make the Möbius strip magnetic troughs on both “sides” of the material. Doable by inverting one half against the other in a v shaped pattern. Then you’d need an upper housing to keep the atoms in place so they could be accelerated. What would that be? Another Möbius strip.
I was just basing it on deflection interpretations shown form collisions in the past, they strike out straight, at slight and significant angles and then otherwise curl away.
But if you did build one there would be some trouble building a magnetic trough as it would be a v at first and at ^ where it met itself if done around once, I think—So would it pay to start with two troughs going in separate directions as many times as needed (Minimum 2 opposing lines traveling in opposite directions meeting somewhere along that line [midpoint possible but anywhere achievable if speeds are attainable]) and then converging at a point. For that matter do they accelerate the materials to the same speeds or relative speeds to the masses of the isotopes being intertwined? I realize they would need different accelerations and magnetic field densities.
Now the question becomes can you house a Möbius strip within a housing that allows proper collision. The answer is yes. Just A custom magnetic housing. The other question is, is there a need for a Möbius strip collider? It’s more maths to get the collisions right, but you get twice the distance per round before collision for a similar amount of space.
Also according to google if you search for Möbius strip benefits it seems to say that they last twice as long as a loop because they wear down evenly. Who’s to say that the collision points wouldn’t need retuning after each use but it may minimize the amount of maintenance needed.
So I’ve been trying to think of ways to get my music on the net without paying for it. I doubt it’s any good, but I use it to relax every few days or so and just picked up a lavaliere mic to reduce the huffing that is my breath. Nothing is edited, but there aren’t that many mistakes outside of a few cuss words in between starting up again after a mistake.
There’s the google drive link to 80 or so songs. I had to manually port them off my iPad to the google drive one at a time because voice memos doesn’t do mass porting even to its own file system, which was a bummer.
I’ll add more music now and again. If you want to hear a bit of everything then I would pick randomly.
Warning: I do swear, huff, and squeak. The piano and myself are both old on the inside, haha.
Hope you enjoy them. Have a wonderful night/day. -J.
I’m sitting here getting a taste for Math Rock—which is pretty chill and reminds me of how I would pick at my cello in school. With rhythm but arpeggios throughout. Fun stuff.
I’ve had a mixed episode from coming off of clonazepam early because I got the dosing wrong for a couple of days which happens when I get ill. I start to get confused and agitated without realising it. Made for a couple of lousy days with my Partner as she has to deal with me and I can be grumpy or even nasty when I’m sick. I do apologize though. But she can take it to heart when it’s not meant as such, which is my fault.
So my family decided, after both confirming that they would come to my house this year for our last Thanksgiving together, to go to California—after I told them both that I can’t travel because it literally makes me sick every time I do, and I only do under family emergencies or if I suppose when I do, moving home. It’s not a simple choice of I don’t want to. I can’t—especially at this time of year when I first got really ill all those years ago. My mother pulls this shit all the time and I finally stood up for myself and told her not this time, but that she was no longer welcome in my home—because honestly she’d just get drunk and throw up everywhere and call me a freak like she did at her place while I was trying to look after her for the two month stretch the illness had her down the last time. They say to cut toxic people from your life and I think I just did, even though it may cost me a lot later on in life—she doesn’t get to do whatever she wants whenever and get away with it just because she’s my mother—not that she’s acted like it growing up. She really just spent it drinking and getting high, and then complaining about her life when she had anything she could ever want—and just chose to hate everyone around her and everything about her life at that point when the family had finally made it.
The reason for her visit back there? To have yum cha (dim sum) at a restaurant that’s now closed, and visit dad’s work—who worked him literally to death. So that’s how little I’m valued by this person, who if you’re not doing things for each day repeatedly, you’re not worth talking to. My therapist calls her a whirlwind of chaos, haha. There was nothing stopping her from flying to my place, and then driving down to California afterwards—though she acts as poor as I am, she’s well off.
Anyway, enough bitching about my life. My brother gave me these books for my birthday, which blew me away and I’m quite thankful for, but I’m only 50 pages into the first one, and one’s a literal text book on the matter, as is the other one in density of material. It’s intimidating but I know once they’re parsed and read I should be good to go with at least starting out with the Asmovian Comic. Plus I’ve got to reread Scott McClouds Making Comics book again which isn’t shown for whichever reason.
My pups are chattering away while I type and the music is getting intense. Now it’s onto the Rocky Horror Picture Show soundtrack because it reminds me of my father in a good way. It was one of his favorite movies.
So I’m off to read Colour and Light and get to work again until I’m feeling my old self again.
Used Gesso and Black 2.0 which is interesting, but a little delicate while it’s drying I think the problem was a that I was painting over a gessoed and already painted surface and some of the canvas teeth were not allowing paint in. But it’ll do for now, and I can finally say after years of this dang things reference sitting in my collection that I got a version of it done. It’s not the photorealistic 6×8’ version I had planned but it was a worthwhile nonetheless. Now I’ve got a huge canvas to tackle and then I think I’ve run out of canvas’s to work with and finally start to get rid of them for the move.
I have plenty of time to learn about things while I’m not sleeping.
Things I wish I had. A diamond anvil cell, with multiple rubies and perhaps a pulse laser to force greater pressure down. Something to build carbon structures with like a u.v. laser printer. An x-ray analyzer to understand flow better. A CVD I could reformat to do what I want to show you the new materials I can make from an altered one.
