⪮ Good Morning :: ⪮ s02e06: Computers have always been spatial
Using img2img in Stable Diffusion, we applied a prompt to a QR code to create 2D barcodes that are works of art yet impressively still work as links!

It's June and the year is nearly 50% over. With Apple's demonstration of their take on Spatial Computing, we dug out a few links to other explorations, including a CGI T-Rex who turns 30 and the life expectancy of stars.


"The computer of the future is not a product, but a place."

In Oakland, California USA, there is a community space, where people will come to shape what it means to "live in the future".

Doing spatial computing since 02018!


BumpTop is a 3D desktop user interface inspired by real desks. It uses physics and multi-touch gestures to drive toward a more expressive, human vision for computing.

It started in 02006 as a Masters' Thesis. Coupled with spatial computing, it would be fun to throw the digital invoices into the physical trash!

🎂🦖 Jurassic Park turns 30!

As Jack Weinberg once said "Don't trust anyone over 30".

Released on June 9, 01993, Jurassic Park is now a franchise spanning six films. If you haven't read the book, you really should, it's much better than the film.

What the film skips is the company's original bootstrapping plan. In the book, the DNA scientists create a tiny mini-elephant (Pachyderm Portfolio) 23cm x 30cm (9in x 12in). Based on that "prototype" they raised enough funds to pivot to dinosaurs.

🪫⭐️ Life of a star as a battery indicator

We have tremendous respect for science educators who make complex science concepts understandable. This particular tweet from @bowskeyes caught our attention - it's a graphic that displays the life expectancy of various stars in the style of phone battery icons. Betelguese is almost drained and Sirius (B) is out of juice.
