A Quick Instant Cardboard Project

Kids! We have cardboard! Let's create something from it!
Arwen starts creating her own project: guitar & headphone with microphone. And Neo wants a space rocket. He gets bored easily and cannot wait, so I have to do it quick & fast.

Fortunately, there are some awesome DIY cardboard rocket on the internet, like this one. Easy & can be done in minutes. Meanwhile, Arwen is busy with her project, helped by Leia. Seems they are preparing a music concert.

All done! The rocket now is flying chasing Neo, while Arwen & Leia doing their music concert.

WHOOOSSHHH!! Not bad for a quick instant cardboard project!</p>

Sketching with Old Psion PDA

Doodling with 1997 Psion Series 5 PDA. Not bad for an old device. #pinoditart #neoretrogizmos

Got this Psion Series 5 in flea market and we decided it to make a test: Sketching!

It's not bad at all! And the result is fantastic for a pre-2000 PDA. Much better than Newton MessagePad 130, not to mention how easy to retrieve the file from Psion to the modern desktop device like MacOS via CF card.
Try retrieve images from Newton to MacOS X, you will end up dealing with obselete serial cable, obselete software & obselete system (read: MacOS 8 or classic).

Some sketches with Sketch software.

And this is our 7 years old daughter's quick sketch :D

Playing with View-Master Projector

This is when our children playing with View-Master projector & Shrek reels. As if doing a presentation with slide projector, they tell the story of each slide, with expression, sound effect & imagination.
