Automatic Plane Photos

Luke Berndt created a system to automatically photograph planes that fly over his house in Washington D.C. The skybot system uses the transponder of the aircraft to info the camera where in the sky to point at to take the photo. The camera moves and photographs until the plane is out of range or a new plane is in range. A machine learning custom vision cloud function then confirms that a plane is present in each photo and posts the best one to the Skybot website along with its identification detail from the FAA database..

John Spillane & Pauline Scanlon at Cork Folk Festival

Every few years I'm reminded of John Spillane's great music, from The Dunnes Stores Girl to The Ferry Arms to The Songs We Learned In School. The continued output is a testament to his work ethic. This week, after 37 years of performing at The Cork Folk Festival, John headlined the festival with a concert alongside singer Pauline Scanlon. The gig was streamed and recorded by TG4 and features songs from their upcoming new album 100 Snow White Horses.
