On My iPhone/Android: Layout from Instagram

 
 
 
I am not a big user of photo collages on my site, but I have some very specific use cases that gives Layout from Instagram a place on my iPhone and iPad. I often post collections of products I create with my photography and Layout allows me to easily assemble and post collages of product samples. Occasionally I will use it for more casual creations, too. It does what is does, quickly, capably and reliably, which is about the best that can be said of any app on your devices.

 Create fun, one-of-a-kind layouts by remixing your own photos and sharing them with your friends.

Choose photos from your camera roll—or use the built-in Photo Booth to take spur-of-the-moment shots—and instantly see them laid out in various combinations. Pick the layout you like best, then edit it to make it your own.

Layout's smooth, intuitive process gives you complete creative control. Tap to mirror, flip or replace images, hold and drag to swap them, pinch to zoom in or out, or pull the handles to resize. You're the editor, so get creative—tell a story, show off an outfit or just splice, dice and change the look of your regular photos to convey a mood or theme.

FEATURES

* Re-mix up to 9 of your photos at a time to create fun, personalized layouts.

* Use the Faces tab to quickly find photos with people in them.

* Capture the moment in Photo Booth mode with quick, spontaneous shots.

* Save your layouts to your camera roll and share them seamlessly to Instagram or other networks.

* Easily see the last 30 photos you've selected in the Recents tab.

* Pair your layouts with Instagram's filters and creative tools afterwards to make them stand out even more.

* Download and start creating immediately. No signup or account required—and no clutter breaking up your flow.

This DIY domino clock tells the time using three LED-lit tiles via Arduino Blog

After coming across Carbon Design Group’s Domino Wall Clock, which uses electronic magnetic coil motors to reveal white dots, Instructables member “Kothe” decided to create a simplified version of their own. The clock is comprised of three custom dominoes — the first tile for hours, the second and third for minutes. Unlike its inspiration, Kothe’s device uses addressable RGB LEDs as dots that allow for a variety of colors to shine through.

Onion Pi makes your web traffic anonymous via Open Electronics

Hmmm, might be an easy (and relatively cheap) way to play around with Tor and learn a bit more about this anonymizing service. -- Douglas Adafruit’s Onion Pi is a Tor proxy that makes your web traffic anonymous, allowing you to use the internet free of snoopers and any kind of surveillance. Follow Adafruit’s tutorial on setting up Onion Pi and you’re on your way to a peaceful anonymous browsing experience. Tor is an onion routing service – every internet packet goes through 3 layers of relays before going to your destination. This makes it much harder for the server you are accessing (or anyone snooping on your Internet use) to figure out who you are and where you are coming from.
