Yesterday, we had our 3rd #hackstb event. We had some great demos.
Next up was, Niel (aka Sparkyboy), demoing how to make make music on Gameboys and Toys (chiptunes). It was an interesting demo, showing an unknown sub-culture of people hacking away at old hardware to make sounds and music.
Last up was Rudolf and Nolan (from ikubu) demoing the tech they made to help with self-service checkin in airports. By using kinects, they managed to create 3D models of bags as people load it up on conveyors. This makes it easier for self-service check-in desks to determine if the luggage is adequate and cause as less hassle as possible.
