Cycling on Lopud Island – Dubrovnik – Croatia

This summer I discovered Lopud Island that is close to Dubrovnik.

The island does not have any car, just small golf cart! It has also a lot of trails so it’s so much fun to cycle.

There are no map of the trails so I share here a picture of a map I found:

I also had a lot of fun playing with the Hyper Lapse concept of Microsoft, here is a quick edit of the trails I did cycle on:

You can cycle on any part of the island but be careful some trails are very bumpy and rocky and very steep!

First results with the Kling-Force

The Kling-Force is a platform I develop at ArKaos. It will be used as a robust way to drive light fixtures build with LEDs.

The platform has 3 main parts:
– an hardware switch that allows daisy chaining many Kling-Forces for easy installation
– a processor that can be a Kling-Net / ArtNet receiver or a standalone texture generator
– various hardware interfaces to drive LED tapes / DMX …

ArKaos is working on 2 interfaces built on the Kling-Force platform, one to drive LED Strips and one to drive traditional DMX fixtures.

Plex Plug-ins for Arte, France24, RTBF, RTL-TVI

I had fun working on those plugins for Plex, they are my first experience with Python so it was nice learning that.

Here is a demo of the France24 plug-in, it supports the french, english and arabic sections

Time-lapsing in Florida

I had the chance to spend one week in Florida this summer, the view on the sea was just stunning. Even more impressive were the lighthing during the night. So I made a lot of time lapses… believe it or not most of the video you see here is done by night. The pictures are taken with up to 30 seconds of exposure time:

Those are the first time-lapses I process with LRTimelapse It did allow me to correct the light variations during sunrise by example.
