Earlier this month I got my free DX-Man to join the dealextreme.com competition. Sadly the deadline was overdue so I thought I couldn’t join. So I had put my man on the shelf. Then I got an email where they had postponed the deadline to the end of the month. So time to start working. What do you think of my flying dx-man?
How cool isn’t this little fellow! You even get a set of sharpies to customize it with. Just a bit unsure about the actual height. It says 5″ which is around 10 cm, but they write 2,54 cm in parentheses (which is the same as 1 inch).

As mention in the previous post, I’ve been away on vacation. More exactly I’ve been in Paris and Perpignan which is in France. My girlfriend and I arrived in Paris last Friday and stayed there for one night before we headed down to Perpignan. In Perpignan my parents had rented a house my hole family was staying in. So most of the week went to relaxing in the pool that belonged to the house. It was great, didn’t do much, read a book, played some Cave Story and ate a lot of good food! We also went to the beach, so I of course got a sunburn. A typical vacation, and renting a house was perfect. So much space just to relax in the sun is great. Hopefully doing that again. I’ll upload some images from the trip tomorrow. Today I present you with what I bought after a trip to Artoyz in Paris. I used a bit more Euro then planned, but I’m pleased with what I ended up with.
It’s done. my precious Blimpus is alive!
I got my Blimpus in the mail, which I’ve partaken through Kickstarter to help realized! And I’m I glad I did. It looks awesome! And it’s so big too, much bigger then I thought. Just need to find out which stickers to use as his face and a place where it can stand. I can’t have it standing on the fire place as it’s get hot when it fired up (duh!) and my girlfriend didn’t like it on the dinner table. So where to put. What do you think, you want one?

I got my self a Galaxy Tab! I ordered from the states (United States of America) a couple a weeks ago and it arrived this Friday. So it’s been a wonderful and fun weekend testing out my new gadget. I can first say that I really enjoy it and it works like a charm! Had some problem recharging it since the plug that followed doesn’t fit in the Norwegian plugs. Plus when I tried to hook it to my computer or to use an USB plug it didn’t charge very well if I didn’t turn the device completly off, which kinda sucks. So after some googling I found a way to modify the cable, so now it works! Go me and me DIY skills. I will say that the Galaxy Tab is a true Ipad killer, we just need more Android apps scaled to fit the big screen. I will start working on upgrading my own app to fit this fall (read more about my Android project over at Fifth Floor Studio). I also got some DVD’s and two games in the mail too. Sadly two of them was sone 1 region, which I forgot to check. So can’t use them. Hopefully I’ll be able to sell them to someone who can. The one game who worked was Afrika, which wasn’t as cool as I’d hope. The graphic wasn’t really up to date (even thought it was released in 2009). So I’m probably not going to play through that.
Other then that mail, I’ve been really busy with a school project called Loopy Tangible, which is a music machine aimed at kids. We’re going to show it off at my university this Friday when it turns 200 years. Really looking forward to that.
Also, sorry for the long delay with bloging. I’ll try to be better.
Created a new Munny today. Was a bit restless, but really don’t have time for a big project. So took some old felt cloth I had laying around and glued it together. What do you think? Personally I like him without the glasses, and maybe without the green cloth. We’ll see if I’ll do something more to him later. For now he’ll look like this.
My friend and I are nearly done with the first version of our boat project called Green Boatnet. It’s all made of plastic and we use Arduino to control it.
