Silicone caps

So it turns out (and this is a bit of a surprise), golden mean calipers are quite popular with plastic surgeons…
and one thing they’ve asked for, is little protective caps for the points so they’re not going near people’s faces with scary metal pointy things.

So…

there they are. They come in little plastic packs… which is to say I buy 1000 at a time, and have to sort them into little plastic bags like a drug dealer or something.

I now include these with every 180mm long set of calipers. They look a bit like this – though this is an experimental (slightly smaller) set of calipers – where I tried to laser-engrave a logo… and that didn’t work at all. Quite a lot of trialing and erroring goes into these things.

Apropos of nothing, here is a picture of the NZ houses of parliament, shortly before this protest thing that I went on by mistake a couple of days ago.

And here’s a picture of an amanita toadstool growing on my front lawn. It’s that sort of lawn.

Demo of Golden Ratio in Artistic Composition (fairly disorganised)

Over the years, I've built up a collection of Golden Ratio Calipers... and I decided it might be quite useful for people if I made a video comparing them. Some of them are really good - some terrible. So I set up my camera... and found that my video-space looked a bit bare... needed a painting. So I decided to…

Why The Golden Ratio Works For Flowers

Fairly amazing video going into the maths of why flowers (and pine-cones, relative leaf positions etc) are so often based fibonacci numbers. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sj8Sg8qnjOg And it's fairly amazing because I actually understood it. It's been a loooong time since I tangled with quadratic equations, but (on the 2nd watch) this did actually make sense to me. I always thought that with…

Limited Run : Neon Colour Range

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zoPqpqB6er0 I was tinkering with these colours a while back... and then someone with exceptional taste and style made a big order for a whole range of coloured ones... and every one was all "ooh!!!" So I made some for the local art gallery - and they all sold as well. So I made enquiries about getting a lot more…

New Product Videos

I'm putting together a series of product videos... one for each of the 10 or so different calipers that I make. [br]They will all look kindof the same... they're mainly for embedding in shop pages and so on. Because they'll all look kindof the same, I've made a separate youtube channel so subscribers don't lose their minds with boredom. https://youtu.be/qvXxBQCkF30…
