  • Phun is an educational, entertaining and somewhat (!) addictive piece of software for playing around in a 2D physics sandbox in a cartoony fashion. Phun is not just another game, but is intended to bring in interactive physics as an enabling technology for entirely new concepts and usage patterns in creative computing for animation, simulation, narrativity, engineering, art and education.

    Phun has deep gameplay, where you combine problem solving with creativity and artistry, and therefore Phun is both educational and entertaining, and much enjoyed by children as well as adults. Still, we think Phun is just the beginning…

    Phun was developed by Emil Ernerfeldt in his MSc thesis project at the Department of Computing Science at Umeå university, supervised by Kenneth Bodin, VRlab/HPC2N.

    Originally, the MSc project that lead to Phun was announced by Kenneth Bodin as a project for a the science center, Umevatoriet, in Umeå. However, Emil went way beyond this and Phun has found its way t

  • BasicLinux is designed specifically for old PCs. It uses a small kernel and busybox to provide a low-RAM Linux, capable of browsing the web, doing email, and functioning as an X terminal. The current release of BasicLinux is particularly suitable for old laptops — it has PCMCIA capability and includes MagicPoint (a presentation tool similar to PowerPoint).

    The current release of BasicLinux is 3.50. It comes in two versions: one boots from a DOS harddrive, the other boots from floppies. Both versions have the option to install themselves to a Linux partition on the harddrive.

  • Canon Rebel T1i / EOS 500D Compared to Nikon D90 Side by Side

    Canon Rebel T1i with EF-S 18-55mm IS zoom lens versus the Nikon D90 with AF-S DX 18-105mm ED VR kit lens

    April 7th, 2009

    At the 2009 Photo Marketing Association (PMA) Convention held in Las Vegas early last month, the rumours were already swirling that Canon would soon be unveiling something new and "exciting" in the Digital SLR arena.

    A few weeks later on March 25th Canon confirmed the speculation and introduced the Canon Rebel T1i digital SLR camera (also known as the Canon Rebel EOS 500D in some countries).

    The 15.1 MP Canon Rebel T1i shares an almost identical CMOS sensor with the higher end Canon EOS 50D. The Canon Rebel T1i also inherits the large 3.0-inch, high resolution 920,000 dot LCD monitor with a wide viewing angle and the 12800 high ISO capability from the EOS 50D.

    Bummed because you've got a new Wii and the Twilight Princess hack won't work on it? Have an older Wii but you don't want to buy Twilight Princess just to install Homebrew? Try the free and easy bannerbomb exploit.

    Last year we showed you how to use the Twilight Princess hack to install the Homebrew Channel and various goodies like DVD playback. The bannerbomb exploit is the newest way to install the Homebrew Channel and works on the newest systems, unlike Twilight Princess—which has been a defunct hack since menu 4.0 was introduced.

  • How to Store/Load Wii Games via USB Hard Drive [Slick Tricks] PDF Print E-mail

    Hey people! I've made a major update to this article. If you are having trouble, you can always try the steps outlined in my original post.

    One of the cooler hacks that I've found for the Wii is how to store and load your games from a USB Hard Drive . The idea is that you plug a hard drive into one of the USB slots on the back of the Wii , and rip/store your games. When you want to play them, you have only to access the hard drive and select what you'd like to play.
