Playing with Make-up | Dark lips (+ easy DIY)

Good morning loves,
today I’m introducing a new feature with you guys: Playing with Make-up. Playing with my make-up is something I often do. I make the craziest looks, smokey eyes, bold liners etcetera. 312 more words


16 channel PWM Dimmer code

Managed to find some time over the weekend to get some coding done for the dimmer (was called “controller” but I thought this would be confusing in the end so now it is “dimmer”, more theatery). 930 more words


Running Golang on the Intel Edison

While most embedded development is still done in C and/or assembly, some people are working with more modern languages. The team over at Gobot has successfully managed to get… 134 more words

Software Hacks

The Dimmer

I played around with a few setups for the part of the system that will actually control the LED lighting but everything always ended up messy from a cabling point of view and, as all good development projects go, unmaintainable for anyone else let alone useful for anyone out in the world to try an replicate. 574 more words
