Building upon my artist lyrics analyzer project, I made a small web app that searches artist lyrics for the colors that they mention in their songs.
You can try it yourself here.
Using data from the musixmatch API, I have created a tool that shows what words musical artists use most in their lyrics. It uses a combination of jQuery and D3 libraries to work as a single-page “app”. Try it here.
The web “app” works by finding the artist you search for, and running through every lyric it can find by the artist to develop a lexicon. Once that lexicon is built, you can click on the box that is created to view statistics about their most-used words.
You can also view the most-used overall by clicking the “All Artists” button.
The instant an Arduino or Raspberry Pi connects to the web (with a public IP) it is out there for anyone – or anything – to detect.
In our connected devices class, my classmates and I all saw this vulnerability firsthand. After leaving our connected thermostats on for a week, we experienced our devices being scanned and sometimes attacked by machines from across the globe.
Planet Music is a sound visualizer on the moon! The current version has a set playlist of 6 songs that can be activated with the media player buttons. The space scene reacts to the sound using a fast Fourier transform (FFT). Here is a sample video:

Above is a little illustration that depicts the sunrise and sunset times (listed on the y-axis) of two locations in the world for each day in the year (spread across the x-axis).

In this current case it is the 2016 sunrises and sunsets from Eastern Standard Time (EST) – aka New York – and Central European Time (namely Switzerland & France).
At many stages in my life, for different reasons, I have found myself doing a mental calculation to imagine this time difference, and specifically when our normal waking hours overlap.
These days, both a friend and my girlfriend’s father are stationed in Switzerland.
This illustration is designed to show that our days share a lot of the same sunlight – especially in the summer. So even if we are far away, we can often look up at the same thing in the sky. ?
