Musings of a Fondue

A Simple Arduino Game

Original Date: August 9, 2014

I made a game.

It’s a combination of two tutorials. The game mechanics are based on the LED Game tutorial by PyroElectro. The use of Processing to show the score and time is based on Jeremy Blum’s tutorial.

Gameplay,

  • Press button when middle LED is on
  • Points get per hit depend on how fast the wave is going (1 to maximum of 7)
  • Speed of the wave increases as time elapses. It is also adjustable at any time with the potentiometer
  • At 30 seconds remaining, player gets alerted (LEDs blink and Processing display starts pulsing)

On the Nature of EPUB

Original Date: July 8, 2014

I was wondering if an ePUB file could be embedded with malicious script since this is a well known vulnerability of Adobe’s pdf files. A quick Google search linked to a forum where someone had asked the same question.

So it turns out ePUB is just a bunch of html and css files! What?!

Then I came across this article from Smashing Magazine. And yup it is just a bunch of html and css files.

Not only that, it is just as easily editable!
