Today we completed the swan scan with processing and made a series of .obj files we can edit for future 3d printing and then launched @swanpedalo & the lillypadradio platform prototype at her new home at the Liverpool water sports centre

Soon travelling to Liverpool to join Etienne Gernez Academic Co-ordinator at Protei, who will be talking over Skype at Oggcamp about their Open Source Sailing drone project.  It’s part of the Currently.no project I’m doing with Ross Dalziel, a research group between Liverpool and Oslo developing open responses to the marine sciences. (Sorry, not much time, so I cut and pasted some text from the OSC link). I’ve only had a brief RL meeting with Etienne - in Oslo last week, so it’ll be great to have another one.

If you want to find out where Nautila is moored, just look out over the water across to Hovedøya while the sun is out and its raining - which has happened several times a day for the past month. The end of the rainbow that falls into the trees will guide you there.

There are an unusual number of poisonous jellyfish milling around in the water this year. One morning I threw some withering strawberries overboard. Almost immediately the jelly fish began to gather around and consume them. Very uncanny - but then again, now I know what to do if I want to take a swim without becoming entangled in jellyfish tentacles.
