Sony PSP Development for OS X

A guy by the name of Mr. Spiv has released a PSP SDK for Mac OS X!

"Precompiled binaries of Oopo's GCC 4.0.1 toolchain dated 20050725 and PSPSDK revision 792 for Mac OSX. This time also PSPSDK doxygen docs are included. Download the dmg (46 megs). The toolchain and the sdk installs under /opt/local/pspdev/. Remember to set up your PATH environment variable to point to /opt/local/pspdev/bin and PSPDEV to /opt/local/pspdev and PSPSDK to /opt/local/pspdev/psp/sdk PSPSDK documentation is located at /opt/local/pspdev/psp/sdk/docs/html"

Why not give it a whirl?

MegaMan Effect

Dan Dickinson's blog pointed out the MegaMan Effect. This little gem from the ADHOC/MacHack conference is a little Mac OS X app that runs in the backround, and anytime you launch an application you get a full MegaMan styled intro to that application complete with stars and music. Sure it's just a novelty, but on slower macs that have a delay before launching applications anyways, you may as well have a song and dance first right?

Mac OS X POWERED Autonomous Car

Xlr8YourMac pointed out this cool Fully Autonomous VW Toureg that is powered by the 3 Mac Mini's pictured above.

"how can a car drive itself?
computers inside the car control electronic pistons and belts to control the steering wheel, brake and gas pedals, and gear shifter.

how does it know where to go?
the car follows a series of GPS waypoints that define the course boundary and periodic check points.

how can it "see" the road or avoid obstacles?
various video cameras, radars, sonars, and lasers are used to estimate what the terrain is like and what obstacles may be in between."

Ninjam is the newest creation from Justin Frankel.
"NINJAM is a program to allow people to make real music together via the Internet. Every participant can hear every other participant. Each user can also tweak their personal mix to his or her liking. NINJAM is cross-platform, with clients available for Mac OS X and Windows.

NINJAM uses compressed audio which allows it to work with any instrument or combination of instruments. You can sing, play a real piano, play a real saxophone, play a real guitar with whatever effects and guitar amplifier you want, anything. If your computer can record it, then you can jam with it (as opposed to MIDI-only systems that automatically preclude any kind of natural audio collaboration1).

Since the inherent latency of the Internet prevents true realtime synchronization of the jam2, and playing with latency is weird (and often uncomfortable), NINJAM provides a solution by making latency (and the weirdness) much longer. "
