Craft & Design Science Technology

Jared writes – I started this project with more of an idea of creating a system that would visualize Cherenkov radiation via webcam utilizing a Gamma radiation source and heavy water in some heavy lead shielding to produce the tell tale bursts of blue light. Perhaps hook it up to the LCD window kit system we did and display it on the windowed screen. When I decided to ramp up the project and also was experimenting with other types and sources of radiation for the project I stumbled across a myriad of new ideas for possible systems with some far reaching and profound results.” Thanks Radiactive man!

  1. this is awesome! but what do you for the software end of things do once it’s complete? i know there’s LavaRnd, from the guys who made random numbers based off of lava lamps, but something that’s not command line would be great too, espically if it were for OS X ;)
