CAGD: in-house bespoke course management and e-portfolio tool

"The CAGD website was started in 2004, as a repository for research material from students on the BA Hons Contemporary Art Practices course (then BA Hons Contemporary Creative Practices), at Leeds Metropolitan University. It became apparently quite quickly though, that the tools that we'd developed would be useful for a lot more than simply collating material, and as more courses were included into the system it has grown to become a fully–functioning online e–portfolio, course management, social network, reflective journal and collaborative space, with (to date) more than 350,000 pieces of work and research and 1,000 active daily users."

(Graham Hibbert, 19 January 2012)

Homemade Pong Watch

"I've always wanted to make my own wrist watch, but I had never gotten around to doing it. I love the Buro Vormkrijgers Pong Clock, but still didn't build anything. Then after I ran in to David Forbes at the 2006 Maker Faire and got to see his amazing Nixie–tube watch* first–hand, the gears in my head started turning. I found a neat display in a catalogue that was about the right size, and ordered it on a whim. I hooked up the screen to a computer, and it was so cool looking I knew that I had to make a Pong Watch!"
