HTML image maker

From time to time I like to make small projects that are good for nothing. This weekend I have created a small project that I call “HTML image maker”. Description It’s purpose is to take existing images and to generate HTML table where each pixel is replaced by a table cell. It is also possible to insert text inside the cells where the color of the cell is at the background of the text or in the foreground. If you won’t insert input image than the program will simply create a screen shot image instead. Used technologies The image manipulation is done using java’s ImageIO object. The user interface was built using Apache Pivot. Screen shots Click to enlarge. Download the software Download the sources (eclipse project) View on github Instructions No need to install.

Weekend project: Bluetooth multisender

In my last post I have shown you how to communicate with Bluetooth devices using java + Bluecove.jar. Using this knowledge I have created this small java weekend project – Bluetooth multisender. This program will scan for Bluetooth devices in the area. For each Bluetooth device found, it will check whether it can receives text messages. Each supported device will be added to the list on the left. All you need to do is selected device/s, write a message and press the send button. The message will be sent to all selected devices at once. Yeh, I know it’s not the nicest looking gui there is, but it’s working 🙂 download project View on github
