Has anyone split the atom yet? If not, I would go with that.
It's been done. Einstein did it with a chisel in order to add bubbled to beer.
why else would you split the atom?
Lets all have a 1 minute silence for the awesomeness of beer. *cheers*
maybe too late, but if you are thinking of qrcodes, you may look into the "structured" codes, that split the info into multiple codes, or for education purposes, maybe placing assignments in codes that students could scan. i've had some great results with artistic qrcodes, but they take a bit of time to get nice.
1) You're not too late its some time in June (the one week thing applies though because that when my degree course officially ends)
2) That sounds really interesting - tell me more
looks really cool SmokeyMaverick, but remember i only officially have one week to prepare this so it has to be doable in this time - none of us really have any hardware knowledge..
..also it has to have an education slant on getting computing back into schools(the QR code hunt isnt really educational but its to get people to our booth)
Hi there Guys
Im kinda new here but i was wondering if someone could help me out with something...
Im part of a team of 4 appearing a science fair/trade show in my city and im looking for something to do that will have the "wow" factor but something that doesnt require a huge amount of preparation as we only have one week to do this starting at the end of our course. Something to also bear in mind is that because we did it last year and we were really good and well like we have been asked back but this time we are just representing ourselves rather than our university meaning that we have zilch funding and any solution will have to be a bit macgyver/duct tape and paper ish. Im currently working on a QR code treasure hunt web app with QR codes hidden around the place for people to scan, we also have a robot arm and a talking computer but i wondered if anyone had any other ideas...
The trade show/science fair is being run by Fujitsu and has the theme of getting computing into schools (proper computing not just proficiency with winshit and office).
So with that in mind i thought this would be a great place to see if anyone had any ideas.
( I know this goes without saying but ideas using free software would obviously be best)
PS: I'm quite a confident coder and not afraid to get my hands dirty with PHP/Python/Java
