BeautyShot for Android.

I just released my new android application called "BeautyShot". It is a camera application which will make you skin looks better. It segments the photo with the skin color and makes it smooth. It is very hard to implement in the android phone, the memory is limited, the processor is not fast enough and the camera API is not portable etc. I tried very hard to make it possible on the Android phone. If you got an Android phone, you can try it. It is free:)

Use Laser pointer to play a LED board game.

The Laser Command by Eiji is a very brilliant project. He used arduino mini to build a complete LED board game, and just one 8x8 matrix led as the game output & also input device. Player can use a laser pointer to point to the led and start playing the game.

Wirewrap tool How-To.

I used to work with wire wrapper when I was in the University. I think it is very useful when you don't want to get your hand dirty with the soldering iron. It is good for fast prototyping, and also suitable for your kid when they are too young to use the soldering iron.

Take a look of this demo video:
