Almost six years ago, I became one of the first people in the world to be an Estonian e-Resident 🙂 I had to physically go there to get finger-printed and prove that I was biologically alive, and after that I got an e-identity tied to it which allowed me to transact within Estonia’s (and partiallyContinue reading “Becoming an Estonian e-Resident”

This was one of my first attempts at doing gigapixel images. This has been stitched together from 50 different shots. On the left bottom corner, you will see Jen.
Been playing around with my Kickstarter funded Poppy 3D, which is a hardware shell that converts my iPhone into a 3D camera. If you know how to *cross your eyes* to see such stereograms, you will see that the cat below is in 3D. Waiting for a jitter3d plugin to export these images easily fromContinue reading “Taking stereographic photos with Poppy3d from Kickstarter”
