Cheap stuff gets our creative juices flowing. Case in point? [Andy Grove] built an eight-sensor HC-SR04 breakout board, because the ultrasonic distance sensors in question are so affordable that a hacker can hardly avoid ordering them by the dozen. He originally built it for robotics, but then it's just a few lines of code to turn it into a gesture-controllable musical instrument . Check out the video, embedded below, for an overview of the features. His Octasonic breakout board is just an AVR in disguise it reads from eight ultrasonic sensors and delivers a single SPI result to whatever other controller is serving as the brains. In the piano demo, that's a Raspberry Pi, so he needed the usual 5 V to 3.3 V level shifting in between. The rest is code on the Pi that enables gestures to play notes, change musical instruments, and even shut the Pi down.

The show still airs on Saturday nights at 11:30 p.m. at 30 Rockefeller Center, but SNL is also diversifying how, where, and when you can watch its hilarious skits and stellar musical performances. How SNL Is Diversifying Content Pre-Produced Skits for Watching (and Rewatching) Online Does anyone else remember the iconic "Lazy Sunday" rap that went viral online and kicked off the career of The Lonely Island? That video was SNL's second Digital Short ever, and it was released back in 2005. "Lazy Sunday" was released the same year a little video hosting site called YouTube hit the social media scene. And although NBCUniversal only released SNL clips on its own website at the time, the rapid proliferation of pirated recordings of "Lazy Sunday" across YouTube is partly credited for YouTube's growth -- and the popularity of the digital short format on SNL .

What is money? -Answer: Money is a means by which energy is exchanged. The economic system is based on work energy exchanges from person to person during the supply and demand. Let me give some simple examples. I am a musician and let’s say I have received payment for playing a live musical performance. This payment represents the energy I had to put in to make that performance happen. Let’s say I then give money earned from this performance to a mechanic. The money or payment the mechanic receives is for the energy he had to put in to repair my car. Then, the mechanic gives this money earned to someone else for their work energy related services to him… and so on. -In short, throughout the working world money goes where the energy flows in the exchanging , but here’s the rub. In the above examples let’s say in every case the money paid out was fair and fitting to the amount of energy each person had put in for their services.
