Larkin’s crazy ideas #3, 2015.01.18.a. The LarkinLiveHolodizer

LarkinLiveHolodizerFCAL crazy idea #3: 2015.01.18a – The LarkinLiveHolodizer

Hi all,

The LarkinLiveHolodizer is a system for transmitting live acting performances to the spectator to his favourite VR device, may it be a holodeck, VR glasses, stereo retina projection or direct nerve induction or whatever. Now: What is the difference to animation or tweaked recording? It is live. You can enjoy the live performance of a real actor as if you were sitting right there in the first row. Watching his performance, his emotion, even his glitches – without the need of being there – and without the limitations for the actor. Think like this actor. You perform and several million people are sitting in the first row. With this technology this is possible. The future is bright!

Now: how does it work? The image illustrates the process. Klick on it and look at the letters A, B, C on the image.

Larkin’s crazy ideas #2, 2015.01.09.a. savonius wind turbine in drain pipe

LCI.2015.01.09.SavoniusRotorAbflussrohr
FCAL crazy idea #2: 2015.01.09a – savonius Wind Turbine in Drain pipe (original from 13th of August 2014)

Hi all,

today I present the savonius wind turbine in a drain pipe. I had the idea when traveling to the Loncon3.org – the world science fiction convention on August 13th 2014 during my flight from Frankfurt to London City Airport.

The idea is to put the construction into a drain pipe so you can transport it on a camping bus. Maybe have some covers / caps for the pipe.
The pipe hase some flipable legs and it can be secured by some ropes or lines.
Step 1 is: get it from your bus, flip the legs open and foster it with the ropes.
Step 2: get the turbine out with another line. It is folded and made out of fabric / cloth for kites.
Step 3: open it with other lines / ropes so it is like an opened newspaper.
Step 4: There are flexible metal or fiber tent poles that can be pulled by another rope/line so the turbine is now in form of an S shape seen from top.
Step 5: Plug in your devices needing power at the socket in the drain which means the electric parts, the dynamo/generator and the sockets need to be placed in the drain as well.

That’s it for today.

Cheers
F.C.A. Larkin

Larkin’s crazy ideas #1, 2015.01.01.a. inflatable telepresence bot

lci.2015.01.01.a.inflatableTelepresenceBotHi Guys – and hi Ladies!

my name is Frederic Christian Axel Larkin and I am going to change the world by making a gift to mankind frequently starting right now on January, 1st 2015.
For now I cannot tell you all about me. But you could see me as a mad scientist having thousands of ideas about new technology combined with our ancient heritage and hopefully a bit of wisdom.
I will explain more of my intentions later on. But for now it is enough for you to know: each of these ideas is released by me into the public domain including all text and all other media (images, video etc.)
So everybody can use it for free, and nobody can prevent him to do so, unless of course… there is a patent or something similar that restricts usage to the intellectual property holder.

Xinxii asks Chuck Ian Gordon 10 Questions – author of the month October 2014

10_fragen_gordon

Xinxii interviewed me as author of the month and asked me 10 questions. The original German version can be found on their blog: http://blog.xinxii.de/2014/10/01/10-fragen-an-chuck-ian-gordon/

And this is an automatic translation from google of the 10 questions to english (which I didn’t check).

Go – grab you some indie author secrets 😉

Sneak preview into the future at Loncon3.org

3futurezHolodeckMusical_Loncon3.org

From August 14th to August 18th 2014 the 72nd world science fiction convention will be held at London for the 3rd time (http://www.loncon3.org) . Gordon’s Arcade will be there in the Dealers Hall on Table F14 (about in the middle of the hall).

I have prepared four goodies for you!

First I have copies of the English GameW0rldz scifi novel with me. Come and get your signed printed copy or get the eBook on a USB stick in various formats (epub, mobipocket, html, pdf)

Second I offer insights into the GamW0rldz sequel 3futurez. Discover details about the story and the presentation format as holodeck musical. Watch the first motion captured animation and parts of the storyboard.

Third experience the fascinating 3D technology yourself. Take a first look through my 3D VR Head set and see Natasha Morrison in 3D. Want to take a VR souvenir with you? Get your personal 3d scan. From a 3D photo I will produce a 3D mesh from your face for you and put it into a small 3D animation.

Finally science fiction is not just stories about the future. It is a way to reflect about our chances and our risks and then take actions to create a better future for our civilization. I invite you to join this galactic rebellion. Let’s talk about it. Meanwhile enjoy the great great 5secondfilm about the galactic rebellion.

I am pretty excited about those upcoming days and am looking forward to meeting you in person in London.

Yours
Chuck Ian Gordon

GameW0rldz continues – 3futurez – the science fiction musical

(German below)

Stay tuned! GameW0rldz continues! (see http://www.GameW0rldz.com)

The sequel to GameW0rldz is the story of hacker star Natasha Morrison leading civilization into a most wonderous future for the next 1000 years. As with all progress great chances and great dangers come along. It is a space story with some amazing encounters. So 3 futurez is a story about the chances of utopia and of dystopia and what we accomplish facing our future as civilization in the 3rd millenium – and of course great, solid science fiction with all that stuff we love to see in it.

But wait! 3futurez is much more.

It will be a novel like GameW0rldz but it will also be a science fiction musical which will completely be computeranimated within unity 3d as Game engine. So it will be experiencable like a video game. Therefore we use soho class technology to revolutionize the production pipeline of hollywood class movies as well as classical musical theater.

Along with this we conduct a research project on future drivers from technology over society over mythology to environment. We will have a close look at how all these aspects influence each other and what controls we need to tweak to improve our future – hoping to create the next generation open business innovation initiative for far advanced businesses.

Sounds all like a bunch of crazy ideas? Yeah this is science fiction! As other crazy ideas before – like cellphones, tv, the internet or space travel.
So when is it ready? Well. Crazy ideas might take a while. As I am writing this it is May 2013.  I already put together the ideas of it since my first novel 2011. I guess it could take some years to get it done step by step. I will keep you informed.

Stay tuned for more information!

German

GameW0rldz geht weiter. (Wer es nicht kennt: Hier der Link zur Kindle Version und zum gedruckten Buch auf Amazon sowie zur offiziellen Website: http://www.GameW0rldz.com)

Die Nachfolgegeschichte heißt 3Futurez.

Es geht um mehrere mögliche Zukünfte ab ca. der Zeit von GameW0rldz (in der nahen Zukunft des 21. Jahrhunderts) bis ca. ins Jahr 3000 – also 1000 Jahre in die Zukunft.

Die Hauptrolle spielt die Star Hackerin Natasha Morrison und es wird ein sagenhaftes echtes Weltraumabenteuer.

Für die Geschichte suche ich inhaltliche Anregungen in der Community und Expertenkreisen zu Q-GRINS Technologien suche (Quantenphysik, Genetics, Robotics, Information Technology, Nanotech, Spacetec).

Neben einer Romanfassung werde ich ein Science-Fiction Musical von 3Futurez erschaffen. Daher glaube ich auch, dass die Arbeit insgesamt ein paar Jahre in Anspruch nehmen wird.

Wer mich unterstützen möchte: Schenkt mir ein Like in Facebook: www.facebook.com/GameW0rldz

und schreibt mich gerne an unter: chuck.gordon (Klammeraffe) gamew0rldz.com (das O ist eine Null).

Ich freue mich darauf, von Dir zu hören!

Herzlichen Gruß
