Print Gocco

I was talking on a forum about pressing letters, and he linked my to the Gocco. It wasn’t exactly what I needed, but it sure looks like fun. A tad bit expensive though, since most of the equipment seem to be in USA and shipping is pricey.

Print Gocco is a Japanese color screenprinting system developed in 1977 by Noboru Hayama. Resembling a toy, the compact and completely self-contained printer is clean, quick and easy to use. The system works using flash bulbs, a carbon-based image or photocopy and an emulsion-coated screen. When the bulbs are manually flashed, the carbon in the drawing or photocopy burns the screen into a stencil. Several colors of Ink can then be applied at one time and multiples can be stamped out, as many as 100 before re-inking is needed. Fans of Print Gocco appreciate its size, cleanliness, relatively inexpensive cost, and the fact that several colors can be printed in one “pass.”

Using math to find Waldo!

One creative coder/mathematician found a creative way to find Waldo in this picture (yes, sadly it only works with this iamge (you could how ever tweak the algorithm to work with other images))! How cool isn’t that? You can check out the algorithm over at, and while your there you should check out some of the other solutions.


As I mention in a post two steps down I needed to get the one pair of slippers in a bigger size. So, yesterday I got the new pair of slippers, and guess what! They where to small. Since that was their biggest ones there will be no more slippers for me…sadly.

I also found out my brother had order the exact same pair of slippers and also had the same problem with them being way to small. So none of us ended up with slippers. So guess it’s a sad day for slipper-wearers everywhere!
