Through a series of experimental films, photography and physical prototypes, the primitive effects of eye (and eye-like) stimuli have been investigated. The Eye Catcher project in its conclusion has developed a novel expressive interface where emotion recognition algorithms read audience faces and in-turn trigger the animation of a face formed of ferrofluid.

Using varnish to offload (and cache) your OAuth requests
"For a current project both me and a colleague are working on a big API system that authenticates through an OAuth system.
