When my mum randomly decided to throw out everything we had in the basement, I saved our old HP Deskjet 6540 from going to the recycling center. I decided to take it apart to see what components are inside and which of them could potentially be used to construct a 3D printer. Video below:
What do you think about the idea of converting a 2D printer to a 3D printer? And how do you like my experiment with background music? Please tell me in the comments or on Twitter!
This limited edition film behaves exactly like the B&W 2.0 film – but it develops in black and red, resulting in interesting and eye-catching images if you choose the right subject. This is also the downside of this film’s unique chemistry: not everything that looks good in B&W does in B&R. I’ve found that subjects that already contain the color red in parts of the image work well. What is also a small drawback is that it was only available with a black frame.
Unfortunately the film is currently sold out. You can however still check out the store page here, so there’s a chance it’ll be restocked eventually.
Here’s me trying to update my gaming PC from Windows 8.1 to 10! Problems arise when the Microsoft Windows 10 Update App decides my brand new AMD RX 480 GPU isn’t compatible with the “new” operating system. Yep.

UPDATE: You can now watch a recording of the Impossible I-1 camera keynote on Vimeo (embedded below). I have also added many interesting details about the camera to this post, including detailed specifications that were just posted on the I-1 website.
Sections (roughly): 00:00 to 10:00 (about Impossible and why they made the camera), 10:40 (first look at the camera), 13:30 (flash), 15:00 (app), 17:00 (example photos taken with the I-1), 17:20 to end (live demo).
As you have probably already heard, Impossible unveiled their IP-1 I-1 camera at the Bloomberg Businessweek Design Conference on April 11th. I promised you to write a post after the announcement to cover all the details that were unveiled. Here we are, 12 days later, and it’s not like I forgot to write or something. The problem is that there‘swas not much to report until now: Impossible annoyingly chose to postpone any info outside of some basic points of interest until May 10th, when the camera goes on sale. Luckily, the BW keynote video is now public, meaning I was able to add tons of info to the post. Enjoy!
As you know, I have a passion for instant photography and the cameras connected to it. I have personally tried nearly every format of Polaroid films that has existed (except the pocket, 500 and 80-type films) and played with cameras from most formats. Impossible has been teasing their upcoming instant camera on Twitter for a few days:
In case you’re wondering out loud, “Why would you want an MS-DOS emulator on your iPhone/iPad?”: Check out this YouTube video (Mac OS 8 on iPhone) and this article on TouchArcade (classic DOS games on iPad) for inspiration. DOSPAD is obviously more fun on iPad because of the added real estate and features, but it works on iPhone as well.

How it all got started
The project began about two years ago: as I was teaching myself how to program in Java, I decided to make a simple computer game to gain some actual coding experience. Its initial name was “SpaceGame”; I uploaded the very first teasers to my YouTube channel on the 13th of December 2013: Continue reading I’m making an iOS game: StarGame→
