Tom Tech - Episode 1 - A Great Trick Solving your Heart-Rate Strap Problem
In this first episode of the series I show how to significantly improve the reliability of a heart-rate belt, avoiding connection and missing HR problems. This trick works with any brand of HR belt, but if you need a spare Suunto HR strap check this link: http://www.suunto.com/en-US/ More info about the Suunto Spartan check this out: http://www.suunto.com/en-US/Sports-Watch-Collections
Tom Tech - Episode 2 - How to make noise or sounds
The three basic sound synthesis technologies explained and demonstrated. Also, some footage from the Helsinki Synthetic 2017 happening. Note that the music is not from the happening but made by me in my studio just for this video. Enjoy!
Tom Tech - Episode 3 - Vitamix blender repair - potentiometer
My Vitamix blender developed a problem with the speed control. The speed would suddenly jump to a very high setting although the control is at minimal speed. In this episode I will take a look inside the blender and fix the problem. No spare parts needed! I will also show how potentiometers work and do some related experiments. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO REPAIR YOUR BLENDER!! It is life-threatening dangerous and will void your warranty.
3D Computer Graphics by Tom Ahola
A demo roll of snippets of my 3D CG creations from a few years back. Most of these were in interlaced format intended for CRT displays and, of course 4:3 aspect ratio. Back then rendering took a lot of time. Now I consider re-rendering in progressive wide screen format, which should be a snap with current hardware. Sorry about audio quality, I made quick & dirty music as my prime studio is still in boxes after my move.
