    Happy Hogmanay to one and all. I like Porthoz's idea of 2019 being the year of the Bronco.

    One of our designers had an extra week's holiday. We're missing him.

    Previousy we had been sharing obscure videos of praying mantis's swaying when angered, like the below.



    So when we came back from holidays and he was not here, we needed a replacement. Someone fun. We made this.



    Also, he had previously bitched about being the only person who bothered to empty the bins. So this happened:

    He's back on Monday. The bin will be waiting for him.

    I met this fly girl in a club
    Went by the name of pecan deluxe
    This ice cream was high maintenance
    When I took her out
    Nearly cost me twenty bucks
    Met this chick named walnut whip
    Nearly made me sick
    To the point of throwin' up
    So I called chocolate chip
    With the sweet toffee crisp
    And I still can't get enough

    Apparently Samsung have unveiled The Wall, a whopping 219 inch TV.
    Struth.
     
  12. Yeah it'll probably be a few hundred K.
    It's actually based on a modular design so it essentially snaps together like a puzzle so size is adjustable from tiny to stupidly big.

    The coolest thing about this tech (which is the next evolution after OLED screens) is the modularity. How cool would it be to buy say a 65" TV and slowly add to it instead of buying a new TV? And if one part of the screen breaks you can replace that part instead of needing a whole new TV.

    Can't wait for this tech to hit mainstream and economies of scale to bring the price down to reasonable. Hopefully within the next decade.

    They demoed separate panes snapping together in real time. Seriously cool stuff.

    We do that at work, have done for like 2 years. But at nowhere near the resolution obviously. The highest quality I think is P4 (one LED every 4mm), but obviously this stuff is made for big screens, like 20 metres +, so most of what we do is P8 or P10.
     
  15. Yeah so these are far, far higher resolution than that.

    You’re thinking of Morkel ;)

    Nope, just the one child (and one now adult with his own child). This will make three, but only the second for my partner.
