viewport at-rule disables Chrome 29 CSS Inpsector

When the @viewport rule is used at the top of your CSS, Chrome’s CSS Inspector stops working and all line numbers are printed out as line 1.

Comment out the @viewport {} rule or move it to the end of your CSS to fix the DevTools.

This error did not occur in Chrome versions previous to 29.0.1547.57

Here’s a JS Fiddle demonstrating the problem.

Mountain Lion Notification after SASS compiling

I was tired of hitting refresh on my browser only to find out Compass/SASS CSS files had not yet been compiled.

To add a notification in Mountain Lion when your files are compiled, do the following:

  1. Install the terminal-notifier ruby gem, as instructed on their Github page.
  2. Git clone Notifompass into your /Library/Ruby/Gems/1.8/gems/ directory.
  3. In Terminal, navigate to /Library/Ruby/Gems/1.8/gems/Notifompass
  4. run sudo gem build notifompass.gemspec , this builds Notifompass into an installable gem file.
  5. Insall the gem: sudo gem install --local notifompass-0.0.0.gem
  6. add the following in your Compass config.rb file, as instructed in the Notifompass read me file

EXCEPTIONS = [StandardError, ScriptError]

begin
require "notifompass"
rescue *EXCEPTIONS
puts "You don't have notifompass gem installed."

begin
require "compass-growl"
rescue *EXCEPTIONS
puts "You don't have compass-growl installed either!"
end
end

Now, whenever your Compass/SASS files have compiled, you’ll be notified. Exciting stuff!

MIT students make Minority Report-style iPad control system

MIT students make Minority Report-style iPad control system Researchers at the MIT Media Lab have created a Minority Report-style glove and iPad input system for three-dimensional virtual object manipulation called T(ether). The system lets the team use motion tracking on gloves to create and alter virtual items with the iPads used as a point-of-view window to see what the users are manipulating. A demonstration video shows the system having multiple users simultaneously affecting the compter-generated world, both with and without the glove….
