The Mighty Hammer Clangs

Although I am  excited for the release of Thor, I  am lucky to be able to hear the ring of hammers around here when my eldest stepson is home. The latest project will be his first homemade Axe head. At current time, I can still hear the hammer going outside and they have been going for about 2.5 hours.  That might sound like a crazy long time, but it is a great bonding experience for father and son, There is also the benefit of a  learned skill and a cool piece of metal work as a bonus.  Around here, it brings an instant smile when I can spend a spring evening watching and knowing they are having a great time staring into the fires of the forge.

A Little Blacksmithing action:

A Peek inside the 3DS world.

I am slowly collecting pictures of what some of the in-game experiences are like. these are 2D pictures of a 3D experience, so do not translate as well as you would like, but they do show some of the potential, especially with the 3D AR, which we have been enjoying very much. Click on the picture to be taken to the Picassa Album.

I am taking my 3DS with me in my pocket today when we go to the Science Olympiad Award Ceremonies. I figure if I do not have any StreetPass moments amongst hundreds of middle and high school geeks, it is hopeless for me for a while.

I will let you know tomorrow how that experiment goes.

now– back to my Real 3D world and a little Saturday morning chores….
