TinyVGA workshop – Timelapse

The TInyVGA board is a very small (30×45 mm) PCB board which generates a VGA signal using a PIC microprocessor.

This is a timelapse animation of the “Generating VGA signals” workshop given by Arjan Scherpenisse on November 22nd, 2009 at the Piksel09 festival. It was created using Toonloop, the live stop motion animation software by Alexandre Quessy also presented at the festival.

Pixelache Software of the Year 2010


The Pixelache Software of the Year 2010 title is given to two different projects this time – pure:dyne by GOTO10 and APODIO by APO33. Both of these are ‘live CD’ projects – distribution versions of Gnu/Linux operating system, which boot on any PC laptop or desktop, including the intel-based Mac and x86 netbooks. These distributions are dedicated to creative multimedia tools for audio/video processing and real-time performance and aims to provide a full set of tools for the average media artists needs.

In addition to these two initiatives, we would like to draw attention to the practice of developing custom GNU/Linux distributions tailored for specific uses such as media production, audio/video streaming, hacktivism, art installations and more. Other such initiatives include dyne:bolic, Sahabuntu and PikseLiveCD. (continue reading…)
