How to videotape your neighbourhood from above

I suddenly realized that I have everything I need to videotape my neighbourhood from above. All it takes is an RC airplane (my newly acquired Multiplex Acromaster), a mobile phone (my SonyEricsson K600i), some double sided tape and couple of strips. Voila!

I'm not sure what Accenture policy says about attaching company property to an RC plane and flying around with it. Best not to ask. Nils, if you read this, I promise never to do it again.

Should you decide to go down this path, and you happen to crash your plane while recording, make sure to leave message on the phone telling whoever finds it, who to call (not yourself, dumbass, you just lost your phone). That way you have a certain chance of getting your phone back, and maybe even your plane.

Since I enjoy misusing any new technology I get my hands on, I obviously uploaded the recorded video to YouTube. Enjoy the movie!

Flash homepage

This used to be my web-site. Flash from bottom to top. Back then I thought it looked hot. Now it just looks silly.

When I got tired of manually editing HTML every time I wanted to put out a new picture gallery, I finally wrote my own generator, in Java.

My dream as a kid was to control things in the real world using a computer. Now I use two small servo-motors to tilt and pan my web-cam.

Sitting in the garden in Chile during springtime inspired me think about how trees grow and sprout new leaves and branches.

This is the web site for Kari's father's company. It's quite simple, but web statistics show that people are actually using it quite a lot.

Kari psykolog

Kari was sure she would spend months looking for a job as a psychologist in Norway. She decided she needed to promote herself using a home page.
