This Sunday, tomorrow, paper airplane wizard and Maker Faire presenter, John Collins will be attempting to set a new world record for paper flight. The world record attempt will happen at 9:45am PST. The throws will take place at McClellan Air Force Base (3028 Peacekeeper Way, McClellan, CA) in a hangar. The aircraft is designed by John and will be thrown by Joe Ayoob.
Things are looking great in practice flights. John writes:
Godspeed, John Collins!

I especially like how he builds handles for his tools. Proenneke says that building a cabin in the wilderness was just “something he had to do” and by doing it test himself. The YouTube video below covers ten minutes of the show and shows him building a cabin just before winter sets in.
According to an article about him in Wikipedia,
He passed away in 2003. The complete set of his videos are available.
Ever dream of living alone in the wilderness? I have, especially after reading “Call of the Wild” but I would not be able to do it. Now I can vicariously through Dick Proenneke, and idly sit by and watch him do it all. Incredible.
Jonathan Brainin’s Pendulum Video is a mesmerizing video sculpture work-in-progress. A camera points at a video monitor which is displaying the image from the camera. When a second monitor swings in front of the first, it creates a beautiful repeating pendulum pattern across the screen. Check out Jonathan’s videos for a few other modes that alter the look of this slick installation. [via Triangulation Blog]
