NASA/Perseverance 

I was thinking yesterday about what the camera system would need to look like to get this shot yesterday... not knowing that they had done it.

I am sooo in love with this image.

worms are the perfect ally... but iff you piss off a worm . you've just made an enemy for life

Today I stumbled across dust3d

It's a really neat, novel-feeling tool for building basemeshes, as well as low poly assets. A bit rough to get started UX-wise but if you've got 2 views of something you can probably do an OK job very fast.

Seems quite in line with merveilles ideals, though it's starting to get quite a few side-features - not necessarily a bad thing, but affects size etc.

I want to give it some more time and attention soon!

Ring Users Gave LAPD Footage of Black Lives Matter Protests

New emails show that Ring's private surveillance network is sometimes being used by cops to surveil activities at major protests

this is the first time that police have been caught trying to use Ring footage to surveil those protests

I think I will start collecting it. This happened because I swapped the BC4 endpoints
