Really a great little quadcopter. Much fun to be had with it, I’m almost ready to take it outside.
I’ve been wondering for a while if I could represent a picture with Duplo pixels in a way that would do it justice.
Introducing the Duplogrifier!
Duplogrifier will take any JPEG and turn it into an arrangement of 2×2 Duplo bricks. Now truth be told, the answer to my original question is “no”. There are not enough colors available and it would take a obscene amount of bricks to build something visually acceptable. However it leads to some fairly cool results.
2015-04-15: added 6 more “pixel” colors.
You can play with it here:
#!/bin/bash tunnel_entrance_port=13306 firstname.lastname@example.org destination=127.0.0.1 destination_port=3306 # Use netcat to connect to tunnel entrance port. If its exit code is not zero, the tunnel needs to be brought up nc -w1 localhost $tunnel_entrance_port > /dev/null if [[ $? -ne 0 ]]; then echo "creating new tunnel for MySQL" /usr/bin/ssh -f -N -L $tunnel_entrance_port:$destination:$destination_port $tunnel_end if [[ $? -eq 0 ]]; then echo " tunnel to $destination through $tunnel_end created successfully" else echo " an error occurred creating a tunnel to $destination through $tunnel_end" fi fi
