Animoji Karaoke – To Boldly Go…

Harry McCracken, the technology director at Fast Company has invented something super fun, which he has named, “Animoji Karaoke”. It’s a very silly idea and a bit tricky to execute. Using an iPhone X in Messages, you can create an animated emoji, or Animoji, but you can only record 10 seconds. The trick he figured out was to use the iPhone’s built-in screen recorder to record Messages instead. That means you then have to open in an editor (I used ScreenFlow) to crop to just the Animoji. But to make it Karaoke, you have to lip-synch to some audio and bring that audio into the video. I thought you guys might get a kick out of my attempt at Animoji Karaoke!

CCATP #509 – Bart Busschots on PBS 43 – Introducing JavaScript ES6

In this installment of Programming By Stealth, Bart spends most of the time talking through his solution to the previous challenge, where we added start and stop buttons to our Game of Life. In his solution, he actually modifies the prototype to accommodate the ability to add these buttons. He explains his process and his decisions along the way. I’m not going to lie, this one confused me quite a bit in the middle but we both hope it’s because we’ve been away from the hard-core JavaScript for quite a while.

Once we have that under our belts, he starts explaining some of the cool, new features in JavaScript ES6 where we abandon var and replace it with let and const. He explains the value of these new terms (and the problems they solve!)

Bart’s full tutorial is available as always at bartbusschots.ie/…
