GoPro Karma Drone and Grip

I was looking for a new gimbal to use in making our videos. We were previously using a Lanpart LA3d and a GoPro Session 4. The idea behind a gimbal is to smooth out your video in what would normally be bumpy or bouncy situations. Great for when you are walking around or riding skateboards, bikes, etc… The Lanpart was a decent gimbal, once you got it going, but it can be a pain to setup and we were not using it enough to have created muscle memory on how to use it. Spring came around this year and I...

Back at the Arcade

We went back to the Round 1 arcade last weekend and had tons more fun. We spent more credits on the claw machines/ufo catchers this time around and at eight credits a pop our time at the arcade just fly right on by. Like I said in my previous post I’m still not 100% sold on these UFO catchers. I would rather have a joystick instead of direction buttons. I also feel that you have to trick the prize out of the holders, it’s not really a claw game, it’s more like a game of trick shot. You have to...

Arcade Youtube Videos

I recently started watching some arcade videos on YouTube and got Sam hooked on them as well. Here are some examples of the videos we have been watching. There is something zen about watching other people play arcade games especially the coin pushers. We decided to give it a try ourselves. I grew up going to playing video games (still do) and going to arcades. Nice to see some more modern larger places like Round 1, Dave & Busters, and GameWorks keeping the arcade alive. Sure we played in the arcade when we visited the Great Wolf Lodge from time to time, but...

There are a few seats if you want to sit and eat your dozen maple bars at Chuck’s...


IFTTT: Applet Deletion – 4 clicks is 3 clicks too many

Maybe I am doing it the hard way, but I recently went in to my IFTTT account and wanted to clear out some old applets that now longer work. It takes 4 clicks to delete an applet.     Now I know the last one is an are you sure check so you don’t accidentally delete an applet. I would be ok with 2 clicks to delete or a way to mass delete my applets, but 4 clicks just seems like too many. Is there an applet to delete old applets?  


Alien Quest CSS Animation Test

Alien Quest is a website I worked up with CSS & Javascript animations in order to learn how to use them in web development. It is a simple test in movement. The quest starts at the bottom of the page and scrolls up as you click on specific triggers throughout the quest. Start with the launch button and move on with the continue button. The same techniques could be used to make a browser game, to tell a story using moving characters, or to simply show a user how to navigate a website. Scrolling could be done up or down,...
