Building a “Complexity Management Device”

  Arduino is an open-source electronics platform based on easy-to-use hardware and software. It’s intended for anyone making interactive projects, see TED video. Arduino boards (see list here) come in numerous types and may be connected to a wide variety of inputs (sensors, devices) and outputs (actuators, devices, computers). For example, the Arduino Fio boardis…

Using Complexity to Measure Images

  Recently revealed analysis of NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) data has delivered images of unseen quality. The images of the Moon’s terrain made possible by the Lunar Orbiter Laser Altimeter (LOLA) instrument onboard the LRO has been compared to similar images obtained using the Unified Lunar Control Network¬† based on the best available data…
