A second send one lucky winner to space while you get advertising, users and grow the site ad campaign?
Well, isnt that wierd timing, I just read this one – http://www.instructables.com/id/Groundhog-Day-Alarm-Clock/
mike- sorry to ask this of you but don’t know your email – do you have the schematic of the 2 transistor/arduino project that you created to drive a kawasaki tach? thank you.
No idea what it means but I’m glad you-tube allows for playing back at slower speeds as I wasn’t going to get all three otherwise (oh and the rest of the video was a bit cryptic but I’m guessing that’s about another competition)
Sorry four of them (gah, computer kept insisting on hiccuping just before the penultimate one)
4185? you guys suck (in a good way). Last time you did something like this it ruined a good part of a weekend. Well, at least I got a badge out of it. One question, why did you send it on Monday, I have to work.
Assuming this is some form of puzzle…
There are 4 numbers at the end of the video (bottom right, approx 0:44) which reads: 4185. A quick google of 4185 didn’t return much of interest except for an asteroid (4185 Phystech, discovered 1975).
However, searching ‘Apollo 11 4185’ (the guy in the suit has an Apollo 11 badge), gives a link to a NASA website looking at the Apollo 11 landing site (http://svs.gsfc.nasa.gov/cgi-bin/details.cgi?aid=4185).
Don’t know what the title (02,02) means.
In the url of this post has the number 1407981609 which might link to the ‘one time use pad’ on the hackaday store. (http://store.hackaday.com/products/1407981609)
Clues? or thoughts of a mad man … not sure … hopefully someone else knows more! :)
02/02 = It’s the 2nd of February :-)
1407981609 is probably a UNIX timestamp, which translates to “Thu, 14 Aug 2014 02:00:09 GMT”. Unfortunately, no hints on http://hackaday.com/2014/08/14/ , except for some THP posts.
what about http://hackaday.io/project/4185 ?
Hm. I could have sworn that I wrote this first, but the timestamps say I’m stupid :( Guess they were not released before..
hehe. Not that it matters, but I’m fairly certain that the “the guy in the suit” is Sophi Kravits ( @SophiKravitz ), as seen here: http://hackaday.com/2014/12/30/sophi-kravitz-joins-the-hackaday-crew/
looks more like Benchoff ;)
For some reason I only see “5” at that point in the video.
The 02,02 may also refer back to Hackaday “Transmission #2” from April 8 2014. The redundant “02” may follow the “All good things repeat repeat” theme.
I am wondering now if binary data is encrypted / hidden in the static within, or at the end of the video.
I just watched it again, and at normal speed, I see the 4185. But frame by frame (for some reason) I only see the 5.
Don’t forget the original title of this post before they changed it ;)
“All good things repeat repeat”
Ahhh, had to do this the day I start university! With reluctance I’m going to have to let others play along to whatever ARG they’re running this year. Good luck all, and I can’t wait to read how it went. Everyone, I remember how fun it was collaberating on the last puzzle, so why not joing ##hackaday and see how quickly you can solve it!
I think there is some data in the audio, if you listen closely, it does not truly repeat, Also the Static is not the same throughout the clip. I don’t have the tools here to do much more digging.
FWIW, it looks like the footage was shot on the back lot of Apex Electronics down in CA.
It’s in the youtube video description….
It kinda looks like the back lot of The Black Hole in Los Alamos.
A puzzle. Ah. And I was going to say “A groundhog has 8 teats, not 6”. Carry on.
It’s interesting that they took a long sweeping shot of a piece marked Fuselage….maybe a contest to build something?
There is a hackaday project with the 4185 number that may be of help. (hackaday.io/project/4185)
Nice reflection of earth in the visor…
Well, the reflection is of the surroundings. Get a nice curvature of the horizon with the helmet though due to the shape.
Win the contest, get a cubesat of your very own launched into space?
What does this mean for you? Build something using readily available technology, tools, and manufacturing processes. Show how others can leverage your creation to solve problems that matter and you, your team, or your company can earn the Hackaday Prize.
I need a t-shirt. Large
So I owe you a beer, I guess.
beer is good.
Ground hog Day is one of my faves!
watch it over and over
