Encrypted Gemstones

You remember the gold-standard and silver-standard, where currency was just a receipt for amount of precious metal in bank vault and you could at any time return the “silver certificate” and get the metal back.
This is the first NFT collection tied to real gemstones. Each token is linked to a real gemstone, and the owner of the token can agree to transfer it back to APN201 to get the actual gem in exchange.

Check out the collection at OpenSeas.



NFT Experiments

ART? Posted on Tue, March 02, 2021 22:40:23

It has been while from my last post, but rest assured, I have not stopped experimenting with art. Latest thing I was testing, is the strangely abstract concept of NFT. The unique virtual tokens, that allows you to pay for art, that does not exist. People have paid millions to have their fingerprint in a ledger in form of block chain transaction.

So let me introduce my NFT art collection – and it’s all for sale!

Coron.. Corolla Killer!

ART? Posted on Tue, April 21, 2020 07:13:17

So I was bored during the lockdown and learned that good way to kill time is to learn a new skill. So I never really tried to make a mobile game, so I decided to give it a shot. I found a conveniently named SDK, Corona.

I followed the tutorial about creating an Asteroids -style shooter. I modified the assets and game logic and turned it into a game, where you control a soap bar and shoot soap bubbles towards corona viruses and get points from collecting toilet paper and extra lives from hand sanitizer.

Corona Killer

I was amazed about how nice the came ended up to be and decided to put it in Play Store.. but.. it was banned and they threatened to delete my account because of policy violation.

So I decided to change the game name and some assets and it became Corolla killer.

Corolla killer

All fine in the end and the Corolla killer game remains in Google Play. Install here and enjoy for free!

If you wanna to taste the forbidden fruit, you can download the original APK here.



Rehoboam Watch

ART? Posted on Fri, April 17, 2020 07:32:26

Westworld reference

I guess I’m not the only one impressed and confused on how the HBO TV-series, Westworld has drifted from wild west into Bladerunner. In the center of Season 3 is the AI-based prediction and decision making engine, Rehoboam. In the cut-scenes it’s function is depicted as a pulsating black circle on a white background. Real-life events disturb this harmonious wave. In the latest episode the image is also seen projected on a face of a watch – so why not to make your own?

My watch design

I have never worked with watch faces on smart watches, but it was incredible easy to learn the basics of Samsungs Galaxy Watch Designer. In no time I managed to build a basic watch face and transport it on to my own Galaxy Watch. Problems started when I tried to publish it in Galaxy store. It appears that Samsung got trouble from illegal use of copyrighted material, and they stopped accepting new watch face developers until August. Article here. So I thought I’ll be the only one who could enjoy this watch face.

Workarounds

Some Redditors hinted me to use an app called Facer. This has much less control for the accepted designs. Their tool is web-based and very easy to use, but it has limitations compared to Samsung tool – for example the max length of an animation sequence.

Try it yourself

You can download the Tizen4 binary from here, but I have no idea how you could install it on your watch.

Additionally you can find the Galaxy Watch Designer project file here.

The Facer version is a bit different, but based on same assets. You can find it here.
