RandomKSandom is the spiritual successor to FunnyHacks. It’s a series focussing on hardware and software projects that I’m am fascinated by. These are of varying sizes. Most of the software projects will be opensource, although I don’t promise that all of them will be.
With this series I want to push it to the next level, with each episode trying to improve at least one thing from the last. I’ve bought a license with a service that provides music and sound effects that I can put in my videos, and I’m iteratively improving my techniques for recording audio. Video is a similar story, where I’m trying to improve some aspect of the video capture. Eg In the office video, I did some experimentation with motion timelapses so that I could do long exposure on panning shots. Each one of those shots took about 30 minutes to 2 hours to capture. I still have lots of stuff that I want to improve with it, but I definitely got the effect that I was going for.
You may be interested in a blog post I’ve written about the transition from FunnyHacks and what that means for FunnyHacks. The TL;DR is that it will continue as it has been for the last few years with new posts occasionally, and RandomKSandom will be my main focus for the foreseeable future.
