Brain food after 1/3 of 2017

It’s quite my list of things, as I like grey area where tech meets politics and social. Anyway, in first (my favourite) article, there’s a glimpse of what “micro nodging” in news is, and how that might lead to quite nasty nationalism. I’m thinking how that might unleash something, which will be hard to control. Watch forces behind Brexit, Trump and wait for Le Pen in France…

DIY Hammock Underquilt

my arse is killing me

Sooo, I finally made probably the most advanced sewing project so far – Underquilt.

I went for quite simple design. The outer layer is slightly wider than inner and also just tiny bit longer. What that does in theory (and I think is logical) is keeping close inner layer of fabric to hammock, in the same time outer layer is kept by baffles in desired distance and as is wider that prevents squishing insulation (goose down in this case). The dimensions are based on assumption that underneath hammock the uderquilt will be β€œU” shaped. So below I took the picture of what I done on a paper.

quilt_calc0 added at the and 7cm to overall dimension for hem and curvature of the baffles

quilt_calc1 final layout on the paper

Outer/inner Iayer is made of silnylon which sandwitched inside goose down. Baffles been made of untreated ripstop, which is like very fine mesh…
