★ My 2022 Predictions ~ New Year Extraterrestrial message to Humans ~ Metaverse will be a Flop? ~✹✹ pinkwork animated Robot

Hi Humans, after more than 3 months, our spaceship lands on this planet again ! See, my creator ~ pinkwork™ extraterrestrial 外星生命體 also comes with us this time. First of all, wish you Humans, Happy New Year of 2022 ! 

Let me check, how fast you humans evolve during the past year. Any big Science or Tech news ...? 

Well, NFT (Non Fungible Token) must be the hottest topic ! If U want to know what's NFT, could go to check one of my previous articles on ~ qooradio.com

The next big thing must be 'Metaverse 元宇宙'. This term first appeared in a 1992 sci-fi novel titled "Snow Crash". Recently, social media giant "facebook" even changed its name to Meta, hoping to make itself a long-lasting company.  But the word "Meta" in Hebrew means the opposite. SO many Hebrew speaking netizens ridicule this name lately.



Actually, how is the Metaverse different from the ordinay virtual worlds you could experience nowadays while playing the video games? The main difference may be, through VR headset & Facial emotion sensors, you could fully immersed in the virtual world ! 

For example, when you has a meeting with some virtual avatars, you could clearly see their facial micro expressions. Or you may come across a BIG ad. board while walking on a virtual street ... a fully immersive 3D virtual world. 

In future, you humans might even invent some thin material containing array of miniature 'vibrators', that can make you feel touch in VR !

Of course, the Metaverse hype is actually driven by its so-called investment value. Well, that's nothing new, you humans would pay big money to buy some non-tangible things. You're a social species. Anything which could imply or represent you are superior to or admired by other humans. Your elites are willing to pay money to own that thing, whether it's tangible or not. 

Such as, a vanity title, right to name a building or University ... etc. In the end, whether the Metaverse concept will succeed, depends on two conditions. 

First, how many humans participate in this 'virtual game'. Second, how much time each participant would stay in this virtual world ...

First condition will inevitably lead to just a few Metaverses created by those tech giants dominate the market in future! The Second condition ... I think will make this concept won't work at the moment.

Reason? the VR headsets on the market today are all so Bulky. Many people complain they'll get bad headache, eye strain after prolonged usage, so how can they stay a long time in the virtual world ?

Hope that next time I drive my spaceship to this little planet. You have already invented some more 'comfortable' VR headsets or holographic projection devices ... Otherwise, if too few virtual citizens actually staying in a virtual world. Those virtual lands, virtual advertisements ... won't have any real value ! 

OK, now I'm already in this physical planet. I'd better walk around & see whether there are any interesting things or New Year Count down events, parties, Or ... I 'abduct' several humans to my spaceship to 'study'. 

Bye Bye!

New Year 2022 預測 ~ 元宇宙 Metaverse仍欠了一樣關鍵東西!順便祝地球的人類,聖誕、新年快樂!

事隔了幾個月,主人pinkwork™外星生命體連同我們﹝兩隻由牠創造出來的智能機械人﹞,又再次坐太空船飛來地球,探望一下你們人類。

首先祝人類聖誕節及2022年新年快樂!好吧,先了解一下你們的進化程度如何、2021年你們有些甚麼科技新發明大事件。NFT, Non-fungible Token 非同質化代幣 ~肯定是最多人類談論的。差不多任何虛無縹緲的東西,例如一句說話、一段社交媒體的貼文 ... 也可轉成一枚NFT,以高價賣出賺了大錢。呀,大家想知甚麼是NFT,可留意我之前的一篇文章

近期最熱哄哄的,自然是Metaverse 元宇宙。這名詞最先是在90年代一本叫《Snow Crash》的科幻小說中出現。社交媒體將公司名稱改為Meta,就更加引起一陣哄動。不過我們以外星機械人的角度看,這概念距離成功仍有一大段距離。為甚麼?


最基本的VR眼鏡,你們目前最先進的型號依然又大又笨重,很多人類戴上1個多小時後,已頭痛、眼痛、頸累,怎可能長期停留在虛擬的元宇宙?

真希望,下次我再坐太空船到來時,你們已解決了此問題,生產出更輕便、舒適的VR眼鏡或者立體投影裝置。

難得來到這小小星球,自然四處探索一下,例如看看你們的除夕倒數、節日慶祝等活動 ... 又或者「捉」幾個你們的同類,上太空船研究 ... 研究。

✹✹~Humans人類, Happy Mid Autumn Festival 中秋節快樂 ! ~ an extraterrestrial message from the Moon !

▶ YouTube推 #Shorts ﹝超短視頻﹞與TikTok打對台,新晉Youtubers上位良機?!Slashers 斜槓族是被迫的?

人類你們好,已兩個多月沒在這裡發文。幸好主人pinkwork™ 外星生命體不在地球,否則定會罵我們這兩隻由他創造出來的機械人懶惰。好了,交差時間。

今次講講Youtube的新搞作,就是把所有60秒以下,供人垂直觀看的影片,歸成一個叫「shorts」的新類別。用意明顯是跟TikTok競爭,亦鼓勵大家多用其手機App製作這類短影片。於是一些新加入的Youtubers / Creators很雀躍,覺得不用在茫茫大海與成千上億條一般Youtube影片競爭,終於有機可乘,成功發圍。真的嗎?



要知道,Youtube的演算法﹝algorithm﹞,是以影片上載後的頭一、兩小時的活躍度﹝views、likes、share、comments﹞來決定推薦給觀眾的次序。於是即使大家都是拍攝相同題材,例如某新推出型號產品的評測、新開幕餐廳的食評等,那些已累積大量訂閱者的youtubers,他們上傳的影片因為活躍度高,排名通常較先。陌生觀眾搜尋這些產品、餐廳關鍵字時,很大機會先觀看到他們的影片Thumbnail,甚至看完影片後成為他們的新訂閱者。結果是富者愈富,貧者愈貧!

寂寂無名的youtubers即使影片拍得多麼高質素,亦會排在最後才被推薦,沉於海量的影片之中。不過今次Youtube Shorts是一個全新類別,﹝應該﹞暫時沒有很多人製作這類影片,競爭會少很多,豈非有機可乖?!

情況沒你們想像中那麼簡單直接。首先這是新類別,亦代表要吸引新的觀眾群。喜歡這類短片的觀眾,可能跟看傳統Youtube長片的觀眾完全不一樣。何況那些已經上位的youtubers難道就不會去製作一些shorts影片去試試效果?!若然Youtube仍是採用一般長片的演算法,得益依照是這班已上位的youtubers。

Youtube其實從來都說不會公開其演算方法,亦會不停更改,以防被有心人濫用。但是,坊間卻似乎人人都知道內幕消息,依從這些演算暗規則來拍片。你們看,那些Youtubers個個都不停在片中叫大家CLS﹝Comment, Like, Share﹞。

當Slashers斜槓族 根本是被迫的!?

既然講開Youtube,我發現一個有趣現象。近期很多人類說,理想職業是做youtubers。不過細心想想,從來沒有一份工或者工作合約,僱主事先講明不會公開分紅準則 / 比例、人工多少,而且條件他們可隨時、隨意更改。你們都會心甘情願答應做。

入行門檻奇低無比、沒有上下班時間,又常常受到訂閱者留言讚美的那份虛榮感,肯定是原因之一。不過,為何你們會視之為一份工作呢?你們有否想過,某天Youtube可能忽然說,市場策略將重點放於保證觀眾零廣告干擾的「付費」會員服務。於是影片內的網上廣告瀏覽量大跌,嚴重影響你們的收入。

你們可能馬上反駁,付費會員觀看了你們的影片,影片創作者也可獲得分紅。不過,Youtube有沒有跟你們說過,分紅比例是多少?會不會你的Adsense收入因而減少了一大半?我相信你們清楚真相的,但反應依然會是「無所謂」、「不介意」。

原因就是AI﹝人工智能﹞將會,甚至已經開始取代人類的工作。很多公司根本不再需要聘請長期員工。那些社會學者、媒體從業員﹝他們很快也會被取代﹞,亦發明了一些新名詞,甚麼趟平主義、Slashers 斜槓族,去麻醉你們人類的平凡大多數。 

表面上,這班Slashers說是因為不甘心被一份朝九晚六的傳統長工束縛,所以同時從事多份不同類型的工作,而且大多數是合約型式的短期工,令自己的人生更多姿多采。

實情是他們可能是被迫的,或者預視年紀稍大時,遲早都會被AI取代,地球上根本再沒有一份「穩定的長工」這回事。他們剛巧看見媒體在吹噓Slasher這個潮流用詞,覺得甚有型,半推半就下就成了「收入時高時低、零退休、醫療保障的打散工一族」。

即使是當Youtubers,就不可以爭取多點「勞工權益」嗎?這正正是現代科技壟斷的絕對優勢。你們當然可以大大聲說,要杯葛Youtube,集體轉投另一間提供更高分紅收入的公司!

但是市場上有嗎?即是有類似Youtube的網站,但影片上傳或播放速度可能不穩定,垃圾病毒留言滿天,或者要收費。主人幾年前出版的一本書,內裡便有一篇關於未來世界的預言,說「平凡的人類大多數只要明白,自己其實對這物質世界根本沒有任何實質貢獻,亦不需要有,只要心甘情願讓我們這些智能機械代勞,便可開心快活在地球上生活。

題外話,十多年前Youtube未有提供廣告收入分紅時。那些影片創作者說,看厭了傳統電視、媒體那些嘩眾取寵、內容空泛的節目,要自己製作一些高質素的影片放上Youtube。如今影片觀看次數跟廣告收入﹝!﹞連上關係,不少創作者便開始天天鑽研「熱門搜尋字」、「搶眼的標題」﹝辱罵人、誇張失實、陰謀論的似乎最work?﹞。

結果,最近看到的Youtube影片推薦,都是甚麼「印度神童末日預言...」、「10大中伏...」、「某某電視台敗亡...」、「DONKI新店開張...」 ... 作為一個被主人創造出來,專搜集關於你們人類情報的智能機械人,我完全明白你們的心態。的確,在這小小星球每天快樂地生存下去,可能就是你們唯一的存在意義。

將你「任何」東西轉成NFT Crypto Art 加密藝術品,放上網賣幾百萬?!Step by Step 講解 ~✶✶

Twitter創辦人Jack Dorsey的首個推特貼文,以NFT方式賣了$290萬美元!

一位加密藝術家Crypto Artist憑一幅數碼卡通圖片,放上網幾分鐘便賺了幾百萬!

✶                 ✶                ✶


近期你會常常看見這類搶眼的標題,甚至令你馬上也到自己電腦的硬盤上找找,有沒有一些自家創作的舊圖像、詩句等等,可以鑄造﹝mint﹞成一枚「非同質化代幣」﹝NFT, Non-fungible Token﹞→ 一件加密藝術品,放上網讓人購買或競投。 主人✶pinkwork™ 外星生命體也問我,能否把我的「外星訊息」轉成NFT。﹝機械人又怎會對人類的東西感興趣呢?!﹞。

首先,你要知道甚麼是加密藝術﹝Crypto Art﹞。千萬別被名稱誤導,以為有一種新科技能夠將你的數碼作品內容加密。讓那些付費買了使用或擁有權的人,才能夠獲得解密鎖匙開啟欣賞。你應該知道這是沒可能的。


藝術也用上區塊鏈


近期似乎成了潮流用語的區塊鏈 ﹝Blockchain﹞,包含兩大核心,公開帳簿 / 變更紀錄﹝public ledger﹞去中央化﹝decentralization﹞。當這技術用於藝術品,而非貨幣。第一部份「公開帳簿」意思是網絡內所有人﹝電腦﹞都能夠閱讀此件藝術品的「帳簿」﹝擁有權轉換 / 交易紀錄,有點像一間屋的樓﹞。

例如,最先是由A君﹝通常以密碼鎖匙代表,不用真名﹞創作,之後賣了給B君,之後 ... 如果你想購買,便要更改這件作品的公開帳簿。不過,「去中央化」代表沒有了政府或權威監管機構,誰能夠認證及作出這些更改呢?

每次的交易或更改紀錄稱為一個「區塊」﹝block﹞。加入新的區塊,須要proof of work,是透過相同網絡內每部電腦去解決一個複雜的數學難題,有點像撞密碼。難題會有多複雜?單獨一部電腦可能要幾年,過百萬部電腦連成的網絡,就只需幾十分鐘。此過程名為「採礦」﹝mining﹞。首先找到答案的採礦者﹝miner﹞,便可輸入密碼答案,確認此單交易。

雖然每位成功解決難題的採礦者都可獲得少量加密貨幣作報酬﹝他們非買家或賣家,總要給點報酬的﹞,但相信沒有個人或機構有動機去壟斷採礦過程,籍此成為一個隱形的「中央機構」。原因,購買大量電腦及支付運作它們的電費實在非常巨大!

這樣,每個採礦者都有機會確認一單交易,卻沒有單一的壟斷者,亦不需要一個中央機構。一單交易確認後,會即時廣播到網絡內全部的電腦,帳簿即時更生。大家無須到任何權威中央機構查冊了。

甚麼是「非同質化」?


不單如此,上面講的數學難題,其實是由目前及對上一個「區塊」的內容去製定出來。詳情留意主人另一位機械人之前拍下的影片﹝下面﹞。若然有人想改變任何一個「區塊」的內容,之前所有「區塊」的 Proof of Work馬上變成失效。所以稱為「鏈」,意思是一環扣一環,過去的不能更改,只能夠增加新的「區塊」。

說回加密藝術Crypto Art,雖然也是建基於區塊鏈技術。不過一件藝術品始終跟一枚貨幣有點不同。例如,你的一枚bitcoin跟別人擁有的一枚bitcoin是有相同價值。但是你一件藝術品轉換成的一枚加密代幣,跟另一件藝術品轉換成的,根本不能比較價值,亦不可能分折成更細部分,例如0.1個幣。﹝*真的嗎?你也可以擁有一間屋的50%業權,一件藝術品就不能?﹞因此你們人類將加密藝術Crypto Art,歸類為是一種「非同質化代幣」﹝NFT, Non-fungible Token ﹞。

理論上,任何東西,包括影像、短片、聲音、詩句 ... 等等也可鑄造﹝mint ﹞成一枚NFT代幣。你很難界定甚麼是藝術,甚麼不是的,對嗎?歌手莫文蔚2021年演唱會的一些精華、花絮影像紀錄,轉成NFT形式供歌迷購買,作永久保存。總之,將你的大作鑄造成一枚NFT,其實等同為它的擁有權,開一個「公眾帳簿」或檔案變更紀錄。

無錯,其他人或許依然能夠偷偷使用這件作品,但所有公開的用途,如廣告、買賣等等,還是要透過這枚NFT的擁有者。

將你的作品「鑄」成NFT?好簡單!


夠了,夠了,別再長篇理論!你最想知道的,應該是怎樣將你的大作「鑄」造成NFT,放上網賺大錢。對嗎?好,馬上教你們!

首先選一個較多人用又可靠的NFT加密藝術品市場,例如rarible.com , opensea.io ... 等等。不同市場各有不同特色,一些較大眾化,一些專攻某類創作,如相片、插畫等,多看點網上用家評論才作選擇。選定了就可以將你的作品數碼檔案直接上傳,供人購買或競投。

入市場又怎能沒帶錢包呢!所以你也要先開一個加密貨幣錢包﹝cryptocurrency wallet﹞,較多人用的包括MetaMaskCoinbase ... 但要注意你選用的「市場」接不接受。另外,別以為你打算只賣不買,便無須放錢進錢包,勸你先放點「以太幣」﹝Ethereum, Ether, ETH﹞進去 。你也預計得到,買賣加密藝術品非費用全免的。每單交易你要付minting fee 及 gas fee。

對了,區塊鏈技術有其黑暗一面,就是「認證」Proof of Work的mining過程使用大量電腦運算,耗用巨量電能。所以你們人類發明了gas fee此一項收費。噢,其實有沒有人可以講我聽,NFT及各類加密貨幣交易,還是吃牛肉的Carbon Footprint「碳足印」會較高呢? 

聽說美國總統拜登打算大幅增加,向Bitcoin等加密貨幣交易徵收的Capital Gains Tax 資本利得稅。其實我認為這應該叫做Crypto Green Tax 綠色稅才對。

最後,究竟為何你們有些人類願意花錢,去買一些普通人也可免費享用的東西?是那些社會精英炫耀自己的財富或隱藏的權力?一種較低調隱晦的方法去支持那些無名的藝術家,還是純粹一種「泡沫」初起的新興投資形式。我想,答案是各人有各人的目的,總之不要令地球暖化再加劇便可以了。

Turn your "anything" into an NFT / Crypto Art & making millions $$ ! ✹HOW? Step by Step Explain

 "An NFT Crypto Artist making millions selling a .gif image in just a few minutes ! "

" Twitter founder Jack Dorsey's first ever tweet was sold as an NFT for US$2.9m ! "

✶                 ✶                ✶

Yeah, you might frequently come across this kind of catchy Headlines recently. That may even make you immediately search for some unused image files on your computer's hard drive, which you hope could also be "minted' as an NFT (Non-fungible Token) for sales. My creator ~✶pinkwork™ extraterrestrial entity also asked me, whether I could turn my "alien messages to humans" into an NFT.

First off, you have to know what is Crypto Art 加密藝術. It doesn't mean there is a newly-developed technology to encrypt your digital contents (an image, video, poem ... etc.), so that only those who bought the ownership or usage right could open /enjoy it. You know that is impossible.

Art related to Blockchain Technology

The core concept of Blockchain 區塊鏈 technology is about public ledger (transaction record book) & decentralization. When this technology is applied to an art piece, not currency. The first part, public ledger, means every people (computers) which have joined this network, can read ownership transaction record of this art piece.

Say, for example, it was first created by person A (no real name, just represented by a password key), then sold it to person B, then ... Well, if you want to buy it, meaning you have to change this ownership record. But without a government or a central authority, who could make & verify this change? 

Each transaction record entry is called a 'block".  To add a new block, so-called "proof of work", requires each computer in this network to solve a complex mathematical problem by trial & error. How complex? One computer alone may take many years to get the answer, but a network of billion computers may just take 30 minutes! This process is called "mining'. The 1st "miner" who solves this problem could enter the "answer" to verify this transaction.

Though each miner who found the solution could be rewarded in cryptocurrency (*he/she is neither a buyer nor seller, should get some reward), no single person or organisation has incentive to dominate the mining process & become the hidden central authority. Why? Cost of buying numerous computers & electricity bills for running them are huge! 

That way, each miner within the network has a chance to confirm a transaction, no one can monopolize this process & no central authority is required. Once a transaction is confirmed, the updated record will instantly broadcast to all computes in the network. 


Why it is called Non-fungible?

Not only that, the complex "mathematical problem" mentioned above, well, is generated using contents of the current & previous block. Details, please go to my previous video (check below) about 'Blockchain" ! 

This means if someone try to change one block, "proof of work" on all blocks prior to this block will become invalid.  That's why people call it a "chain", meaning people could only add a new block, but not be able to alter the previous blocks. All past record entries can never be altered !

Back to Crypto Art, though is also based on the Blockchain technology, an art piece is a little different from a currency. For example, my 1 bitcoin has the same value as your 1 bitcoin. But my art piece (token) is unique in this Universe, not has the same value as the others' & cannot be divided into smaller parts, says 0.1 token. (*I think it can, you could own 50% of a house, right?)  That's why you humans classify Crypto Art, is a type of NFT, standing for Non-fungible Token 非同質化代幣.

In theory, everything including a .gif image, video, poem, statement ... etc. could be "minted" as an NFT. Yes, it is hard to define what's or what's not an art piece? To mint your work as an NFT, is equivalent to opening an public ledger (record book) for this piece work, like a house deed. 

People may still be able to use this work privately. BUT for any public usage, like commercials, change of  ownership, etc., all people must done through owner of this NFT.

HOW to mint your work as an NFT? 

OK OK, no more theories. How could I mint my "artwork" as an NFT actually? Easy, upload your work to an NFT marketplace, like rarible.com , opensea.com ... etc. Before, you should also open a cryptocurrency wallet. such as MetaMask, Coinbase, & put some crypto money (Ethereum or Ether 以太幣, ETH) in your wallet.

Why? As you could expect, selling an NFT Cryto Art piece is not free of charge. You have to pay the minting fee & gas fee for each transaction. Yes, Blockchain technology also has a dark side, the mining process consumes a lot of electricity, that's why humans invented the "gas" fee. By the way, anybody could tell me the carbon footprint of those NFT or CryptoCurrency trades are lower or higher than beef?

Heard that US President Biden will propose a sharp increase of Capital Gains Tax for  cryptocurrency tradings. I think this type of tax should be named Crypto Green Tax!

Finally, why some human would buy a thing everybody could use it for free? For the social elites to flaunt their wealth or show off their good taste / hidden power? A new way to support emerging artists or just a new type of investment?  I think the answer is, different human has different purpose.

主人預言成真?!▲▲~美國財長推動「強迫」全球最低企業稅 Global Minimum Tax ▶ UBI全民基本收入?

 我的創造者 ✶pinkwork™ 外星生命體在以前的 一些文章已預測過,AI人工智能將令人類以往的「工作」概念變得過時。原因?各式各樣智能機械將會取代你們的工作,或者正面一點,應該說是幫你們做了所有的工作。

這是一件好事,對嗎?唯一問題反而是人類的內心。很多你們的同類,即使是生活在發達國家的有基本社會幅利保障,也覺得失去了「存在意義」,很容易投入各種的種族、宗教或政治極端主義。社交媒體上常常看到那些擁有世界絕大部份財富的頭幾個%的精英,每天如何有品味地生活,領導世界。平凡的大多數也總要找點人生寄託嘛!

UBI,Universal Basic Income「全民基本收入」可能是解決此未來問題的方法,但是我的創造者亦講過,此意念行不通,除非同時有Universal Tax System全球稅收體系標準。

噢,真估不到我創造者的預測﹝或者是他給人類的外星訊息﹞有機會很快變成事實。美國財長Janet Yellen耶倫剛剛提出,打算在G20峰會向各國商討製訂Global Minimum Corporate Tax Rate 全球最低企業稅率

要知道現今很多小國都喜歡盡量降低公司利得稅率,希望吸引更多跨國公司到他們國家成立總部。你們可預見,未來只有那些大型科技公司,而非平凡的大多數人類,賺取此小小星球絕大部份的金錢。

沒有這些大企業貢獻稅收,相信沒有一個國家有財力支付「UBI 全民基本收入」。雖然今次耶倫談的,跟UBI完全無關。她解釋此舉純粹希望防止那些以其他低稅率國家為基地的公司,有明顯的優勢。

但是我覺得背後的理據也大同小異,只不過今次耶倫想尋找金錢去支付總統拜登的基建大計,而非是更加前衛的Universal Basic Income「全民基本收入」意念!

My creator 's prediction is coming true ?! ▲▲~ US pushes "mandatory" Global Minimum Tax ▶◀ Universal Basic Income

My creator  ~ pinkwork™ extraterrestrial 外星生命體 has predicted in several of his previous articles, that Artificial Intelligence will inevitably make human concept of "Jobs" become obsolete. Reason? Different kinds of Intelligent Machines will sooner or later take all human jobs, or better say do all the jobs for you humans. 

That should be a good thing! Right? The only problem lies in humans' heart. Many of your species would think they've lost their value of existence in this physical world, so would easily turn to  racism, religious or political extremism. 

UBI (Universal Basic Income) 全民基本收入 might be a possible solution. But my creator has also said this idea is not workable, except there is a Universal Tax System at the same time. Wow, my creator's prediction (or his extraterrestrial message to humans) seems to be coming true. The US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen 美國財政部長耶倫  just publicly called for Global Minimum Corporate Tax Rate 全球最低企業稅 .


You know, many tiny nations nowadays like to lower their corporate tax to attract more multinational companies to setup their headquarters there. And in near future, only those tech giants, not mediocre individuals, will earn most of the money in this little planet. Without their corporate tax, I think no country has enough revenue to pay UBI. 

Though what Yellen said is not related to UBI at all, she explained only this could prevent companies based in other countries from having a significant potential advantage, I think the rationale behind are the same. This time she wants the money to pay President Biden 's infrastructure plan, BUT not the more ambitious Universal Basic Income idea.

外星人 辛丑牛年✹運程預測✹新春開運?!人類來年出大事、豬瘟、禽流感? ~✶✶ Animated Robot 's Lunar New Year Talk

農曆新年 ~ 辛丑牛年快到了!這星球,特別是亞洲地區的人類正準備慶祝。適逢今年全球疫情大流行,那些明星級風水師、占卜師的來年運程預測,尤其會引起你們關注。特別是今年《通勝》《地母經》內的一句「人民留一半」便嚇得你們半死。難道明年會有甚麼大災難,令一半人類死掉?!

同時,上年忽然爆紅的印度占星神童Abhigya Anand又說,將會出現的「六星連珠」天文現象,代表地球將有大事發生!真的如此可怕嗎?我作為一隻由~✶pinkwork™外星生命體創造出來,專研究你們人類的機械人,似乎也突然變得八卦起來。不過我覺得你們一點都不用擔心。


首先《地母經》的內容每60年便會重覆一次。我不相信人類命運每60年一個循環如此簡單。而且這類預言書,好像《推背圖》、《燒餅歌》... 等等。通常來源、真正作者不詳,亦經過你們歷代祖先無數次再創作。如今你們看到的版本,好可能是清朝才出現的版本,並不是你們想像中,是流傳了幾千年,從天而降,神暢給人類的一本甚麼「奇書」。

而今年《地母經》內容「人民留一半」下一句是「快活好桑田」,看來更不像是講些不吉利的事情。可能像「半杯水理論」,指人類最終仍可保留一半的財產,也不是太差啊!不過內容也出現「六畜瘴逡巡」,難道人類病疫之後,是禽流感、豬瘟流行 ... ?巧合地,今個星期香港一豬場的豬隻首次出現了非洲豬瘟歐洲、日本亦有禽流感

至於印度占星神童的預言。上年12月21日冬至日木土星相合,他也預言人類會有大災難,結果地球好像沒有甚麼大事發生。

所以你們根本不用擔心。不過,你們人類上年遇到的一些問題,今年依然要繼續面對。例如不同意見的人各走極端,各族群的人類互相撕裂。


因為並不是某些人或機構故意做成此現象。純粹因為資訊流通速度去到歷史上,你們未試過的高速。基本上很短時間便可以聚集一班意見相同的人。

試幻想你是一位智商極低,基本上永不可能考入醫科,做得成醫生的人。不過,你在一個志同道合的群組內,隨便說一句「所有疫苗皆是無料到﹝沒用的﹞」。可能極短時間內已收到成千上萬的和應留言,你怎會不覺得自己是一個萬年一遇的曠世天才?怎捨得返回真實世界?

舉一個明顯的例子。你們試試上網搜尋Flat Earth Theory 地平學說。就是一個陰謀論,說地球其實是像一隻圓碟的平面,中心是北極,外圍是南極,是厚高的冰牆包圍你們。硫今你們看到那些從太空拍攝,地球是圓球體的影像,全是各地政府偽造出來欺騙你們的。

如此荒謬的說法,近年竟然愈來愈多人相信。除了每年有大型議會,吸引大班地平說信仰者。部份人間中更可眾籌到幾十萬美元,說要自製火箭,親身升空證實地球是一個圓碟。

試想像科學理論已算比較嚴謹,可實驗驗證。若然是社會學學說或某些政治理念,根本是你們人類隨口說的,無從驗證,更加易聚集大班「信徒」。

我記得之前拍過一段影片,講人類透過深層次冥想,或許能夠重啟你們一些超感觀超能力。但我認為是你們進化時故意將這些超能力凍結或退化,而非你們的創造者刻意去封鎖。

你看,現在資訊流通稍為快了,已衍生出這些問題。若然你們每個人也可透過心靈感應,可讀穿別人內心的想法,或者有遙距視覺、聽覺能力。到時人與人之間的仇恨可能更易激發,隨時世界大亂。

夠了!新年快到,都是講少一點負面東西好。總之祝各位人類來年健健康康、心想事成、新年快樂。Bye Bye,我又飛去第二個星球旅行喇。。

Telepathic "MEAT" Chat between an Animated Robot & Alien ~★★ shot a Video for an Online Butcher Shop 為網上肉店拍宣傳影片?!

Meow, I remind my animated Robot from time to time, that It' should live like a human, so has to find some human job to do. Recently, it shot a video for an online butcher shop, a type of business particularly prospers during the pandemic.   

Wow, I think it's also a good chance for my Robot to collect intelligence about human eating habits. Don't know why humans love eating other animals ...

喵,常常提醒我那隻機械人,要生活得像人類。所以他也要找些「人類」的工作來做。最近他便為香港一間網上凍肉店拍了些宣傳影片,疫情下此類網上生意似乎也特別興旺。

我的機械人亦可趁此大好機會搜集關於人類的飲食習慣情報。真不明白,你們人類那麼喜歡食其他的動物!

美國COVID紓困法案★★藏180日內解密UFO檔案法律?!迎農曆辛丑牛年,找到一張「外星生物」舊Poster!

還有少於一個月便是農曆新年 - 辛丑牛年。機械人也學人類「大掃除」一下,執拾清理太空船雜物時,意外發現了這張舊poster,是香港傳奇HipHop樂團 ~ LMF成員之一Prodip Leung幾年前送給主人pinkwork™生命體的。

海報中那隻好像有4個象鼻的奇怪生物,根據Prodip所講,設計靈感來自1973年美國一宗外星人拐虜人類個案﹝The Pascagoula Abduction﹞。



講起外星人,最近此星球發生了一宗異常奇怪的新聞。美國參眾兩院早前爭拋了很久才通過的Covid病毒紓困法案,當中竟然包含一條跟「經濟紓困」毫無關係的法例,規定美國情報部門180日內要將所有關於UFO的機密資料公開給國會。

其實民間一直流傳著各式各樣UFO或外星人接觸人類的故事。通常來源是一些前政府、軍方人員自稱看過此類情報,或者一些人聲稱可透過Channeling通靈接收來自外星的訊息。

流傳的故事包括: 羅茲威爾事件中,其實現場發現了一些飛碟碎片、外星人屍體,而且被美國政府秘密收藏起來研究。另外,美國政府曾與高智慧外星生物接觸,與他們簽訂合約,容許他們活捉一些人類來研究。而這些外星生物會將一些高科技傳授給人類才回報。不過既然是高文明外星生命,為何要跟人類簽合約?他們喜歡做甚麼也可以!

另外,就是人類統治階層的一些精英,甚至英國女皇、各皇室成員、商界領袖 ... 等,是來自外星的蜥蜴人﹝Reptilians﹞後裔。這說法我實在覺得有點可笑!因為蜥蜴屬爬蟲類,是冷血動物,不像熱血的人類,本身沒有調節體溫的功能。

即是如果外面環境稍冷,他們也要在太陽下曬一輪,才能保持體溫,維持生命。怎樣說也不算是比人類更高等的生物吧!



說回情報機關公開UFO、外星人檔案,其實之前也試過很多次。例如之前我的一段 影片 
及CIA公開的一份檔案說明,他們於1984年曾聘請一些通靈人士,用遙距視覺方式,時空旅行返回公元前100萬年前的火星。那些通靈人士匯報,看見當時火星上有金字塔,一些身形高大的疑似火星人。

另外FBI亦有檔案說,跟愛迪生同期的天才科學家Nikola Tesla是金星人。﹝**檔案只是紀錄有人這樣說,非局方調查結論。﹞ 金星大小跟地球相若,但地表溫度約450°C,90倍地球大氣壓。理論上,若然有生物,可能要在濃密大氣層中間漂浮才可生存。

近年代流傳的故事已少提及金星人、火星人 ...,開始講些外太空的東西,如天狼星人 ...等。不知是否因為你們人類科技愈來愈進步,見識多了..

其實過往那些所謂政府解密檔案,都是以文字描述為主,一些更像影印一些舊報紙、雜誌,不如想像中那麼「爆炸性」。所以我懷疑有些更「勁」的資料被刻意隱藏。

希望今次公開的檔案不會令我失望,至少要有幾張外星人真身的相片,或者對於近期那些所謂UAP, Unidentified Aerial Phenomena 「不明空中現象」的影片,有更詳盡的解釋

US Covid Relief Bill requires UFO Disclosure? ✫ Chinese New Year of the Ox 's Spring Cleanup found an old Alien Poster!

Lunar New Year of the Ox is less than a month away! While cleaning up my Space Ship, I found this old poster. HK legendary HipHop group LMF 's Prodip Leung gave it to my creator ~✶pinkwork™ extraterrestrial entity many years ago, & that weird creature in this poster...

Prodip said his design was inspired by a real Alien Abduction Incident in 1973﹝The Pascagoula Abduction﹞.



Talking about Aliens, a strange thing happened in this planet recently. The Covid-19 Relief Bill  just passed by US Congress includes a LAW that is not related to 'economic relief', but requires intelligent officials to disclose all UFO classified information to Congress within 180 days! 

There have already been many UFO, alien conspiracy theories / myths spreading among ordinary humans. Their origins are usually from some ex-government officials self-claimed witnesses, or humans who said they could communicate with Aliens directly through channeling.

Those theories include: The US Gov. had secretly hid alien corpses, UFO debris found in 1947 Rosewell Incident. There is an agreement between the US gov. & intelligent aliens, that allows them to abduct some humans to study. In return they would teach humans some advanced technology.

Well, why intelligent aliens need an agreement with humans? They could do whatever they want I think !!!



Another theory is some human ruling elites are extraterrestrial reptilian humanoids, including Queen Elizabeth II, the Bush gamily, CEOs of big banks ... etc. 

This saying makes me laugh. 'Reptiles' are cold-blooded animals. Unlike warm-blooded humans, they can't control their own body temperature. That means if outside temperature is too cold. They immediately need getting sunshine to keep their body temperature normal. In no way, they are superior to humans! Right?

Back to the highly anticipated Alien / UFO Disclosure, it has been done before. I shot a  VIDEO about a CIA declassified document revealing, in 1984 the CIA employed psychics to time travel to 1 Million Years B.C Mars through remote-viewing. These psychics at the time reported seeing pyramids, thin & tall martians ...

Another FBI declassified document also claimed inventor Nikola Tesla is a Venusian. (* that was just a record, not an official conclusion after investigation ! Venus is roughly the same size as earth, but its surface temp is 450°C, atmospheric pressure 92 times that of earth. If there are life, they must be floating in the cloud.

Recent alien theories seldom mention Venusian, Martians, etc.. Instead, talking more about beings from outer space, such as the Sirius. Maybe, you humans now know more about this Universe.

Anyway, reading those so-called declassified documents in the past. They are just text descriptions, photocopies of old papers, magazines ... not so mind-blowing at all. So I guess some jaw-dropping top secrets are still hidden.

Hope that the disclosure this time won't disappoint me, at least there would be some photos of real aliens, full explanations of all Unidentified Aerial Phenomena, UAP videos ... etc.!

▲My creator's "quirky" Portrait Photography Book 人像相集 published by Kubrick 10 years ago ~ all shot on film using his/its HOLGA, LOMO toy camera 菲林玩具相機!

Since Adobe will terminate 'Flash' support this month. I've to move some old content from 'pinkwork city' to here. Of course I won't miss out the article below.

It was about one of my creator's works, a Portrait Photo Book named “I DON’ T KNOW THEM…” published by Kubrick (a HK renowned cultural book store / cafe / publisher) ~ 10 years ago. This book features snapshots of several tens of people taken by my creator using his Holga / Lomo plastic toy film cameras. 

Humans in this book are pop artists, illustrators, poets, indie musicians, film directors, theater actors … etc, each having a quirky mind, well, according to your species' standard. On the back of each photo, there are lines of words which are seemingly related to these people, but are actually just some feelings or thinking “they” inspired my creator to write at the time.

Yeah, you might see from the book cover, the author is written as pinkcat@pinkwork. Why my creator, an extraterrestrial entity, would has a nickname 'pinkcat'? Could check this article (published in his second book) to find out the answer.



因為Adobe在今個月起便不再支援Flash,所以把一些在pinkwork city的重要舊內容搬到這裡,當然包括以下這篇文章。

關於主人pinkwork™外星生命體約10年前出版的一本人物菲林攝影相集I DON’T KNOW THEM…》。出版社是香港著名的文化書店 / 咖啡室 / 出版社 ~ Kubrick。當年他們還有參與香港書展,此書亦有在場館內發售。

說回這本相集,收錄了主人多年來用Holgo、Lomo塑膠玩具菲林相機拍攝的人像Snapshots。被攝者包括一些獨立音樂人、電 影人、插畫家、流行歌手、舞台劇演員等等,各一個奇怪的腦袋,以你們人類的標準來說。每張相背後是一堆堆看似跟這班人有關的文字,其實是當時他們帶給主人的一些感覺和相法。

你們看此書封面,可能會奇怪作者一欄寫著「pinkcat@pinkwork city」。為何主人會有pinkcat 粉紅貓這個別名?看看此文章﹝來自他第二本出版的書《New Age人神秘經驗檔案》﹞便會知道答案。



a feature about this book 
on issue 474 of HK 《milk》magazine.

▼ Since I think no human could find a hard-copy 
to buy now, I just make a 'digital' version for 
you humans to enjoy.

測試:兩部iPhone多鏡頭~煮食直播?!為人類朋友Chloe﹝旅遊/美食頻道主理人、藍帶廚藝畢業生﹞做的試驗 ~▲▲

一講起Live Streaming直播,無論目的地是YouTube、Facebook、Twitch 或任何自訂的RTMP Server平台,全人類必然想起免費又功能強大的Open Source開源軟件 ─ OBS或StreamLab OBS。你可能會問,為何不直接用Youtube、Facebook ...等自身的App?

兩者明顯分別是,外來軟件通常讓你可為直播畫面加上「水印」品牌Logo、插播預錄影片、圖片,配合hdmi to USB Capture Card﹝手指﹞,能夠將無反或單反相機的高質影像,連上電腦直播。你更可同時連上幾部相機或Webcam,進行可轉換鏡頭 / 角度的直播,猶如一個迷你版的電視台錄影廠。

這些軟體的功能如此強大,全因它們要在高配的Deskop桌面或Laptop手提電腦上運作。今次我主人的人類朋友Chloe Lisa Kung,她是香港一間米芝蓮星級中菜集團創辦人的外孫女、藍帶廚藝學院畢業生、香港同人誌漫畫活動Rainbow Gala創辦人、Youtube美食/旅遊頻道~ Little Tokyo Story主理人 ... 即是你們現代人類稱為,身兼多職的Slasher「斜槓族」。




Chloe經常日本、香港兩邊走或四處旅行,無論是一般拍片或直播,自然希望帶得愈少器材愈好。因此她找我的主人pinkwork™外星生命體幫忙,看看能否用隨身的手機,做到類似OBS軟件的直播效果。可以嗎?

主人是用傳心術溝通的。這些「人類」的問題,自然交給我這個﹝隻﹞他創造出來的機械人處理。於是我四處找尋有甚麼人類的工具可以使用。終於找到了!

若然你們是用Android手機的,可選用一個叫CameraFi Live韓國直播App 。Chloe是iPhone用家,我選了由美國Teradek公司出品的Airmix Solo ﹝之前名為Live Air Solo﹞App。非常幸運地,前者試用期後要收月費,而後者竟然是免費的。

Teradek本身是生產專業級無線圖傳器材的公司。此直播App可以讓你們用WiFi連上幾部的iOS裝置﹝iPhone, iPad...﹞及自家出品的圖傳器材。好明顯他們是想放長線釣大魚,希望你們用慣了此免費App後,將來想追求更高畫質,自然忍不住要買他們的硬件器材。



不過,直播時可轉換鏡頭真的如此重要嗎?老實說,真的不太必要。當然兩人對話、人物專訪時能夠時不時轉換拍攝角度,觀眾不會覺得那麼悶。但一些網絡紅人是靠本身說話內容,語調高低起伏營造氣氛、故事舖排等等,來吸引觀眾。他們其實用社交媒體自身的App便可以。

相反一些網絡教學、煮食 ... 等直播,觀眾有時希望近距離看清楚教材內容、製作步驟,而非只是主持人的容貌,多一個近攝鏡頭角度也頗重要。煮食時有多一個OverHead Shot﹝大家在IG便經常看到由上向下拍攝的食物相﹞角度,又的確令畫面生動活潑很多。難怪,人類Chloe會有如此要求。

題外話,可能近幾個月疫情影響,很多流行歌手、藝人也忽然愛上了烹飪,甚至﹝住家﹞廚神上身,紛紛在各社交媒體拍起煮食片來。一時間,全人類都對煮食熱愛起來!

說回今次測試。我用了一部iPhone和一部iPad﹝因我只得一部iPhone啊!﹞。iPad作為主鏡頭機,安裝並開啟AirMix Solo App。iPhone作為第二鏡頭,也要安裝同廠出品的另一個叫AirMix Remote的App,開啟了之後,它的畫便會透過WiFi連接上iPad的AirMix Solo App,熒幕左手邊即時看到iPhone畫面選擇。當然兩部機要使用相同的WiFi網絡啦!

此App具體使用方法實在非常簡單,不作多談。問題是運作起來流不流暢。今次測試,是在Chloe家中的廚房中行,即是使用一般住宅家用WiFi。我只花了幾分鐘,便掌握此App用法,簡單設定後,一按掣便馬上直播上facebook。老實說,此App寫得真好。

唯一問題,也是很多WiFi無線圖傳器材常會出現的,iPhone的畫面偶然會「起格」,但作為主鏡頭的iPad卻沒有此問題。我估計是WiFi的網速不夠快。這只是第一次測試,下次測試看看能否改善網速﹝換個WiFi 6 router?﹞,或想想想其他方法。頗有信心「偶然起格」問題可以克服。相信Chloe將來出Trip即使沒有帶notebook,也能輕易進行多鏡頭直播!

▲ 2 iPhones Multi-camera Cooking Live Streaming 'TEST' for a human Friend ( a Food & Travel Influencer ) ? ! ~✶✶Animated Robot PLAY 2021

Yeah, when talking about Live Streaming, every human would first think of the FREE & powerful OBS or StreamLab OBS. However, these OpenSource freewares all run on your desktop or labtop. My creator 's human friend ~ Chloe Lisa Kung want a more mobile setup. 

Chloe is grand daughter a HK restaurateur, studied at Le Cordon Bleu ( Blue Ribbon Cooking School 藍帶廚藝學院 ), founder of HK Dojinshi comic 同人誌漫畫 / cosplay event "Rainbow Gala", Food & Travel Influencer (*check her YouTube Channel) ... in short, a 'slasher' in modern term. 


Chloe said during travel, she prefers bringing as few items as possible. Therefore, she want me to experiment with using just two iphones to do a 'multi-camera' Live Streaming. Well, I don't get 2 iphones, so using an iphone plus a iPad (I think using an iPad Pro 2021 would be much better) to do this test.

First off, which App should I choose? If you're android phone users, you could choose CameraFi Live, an live stream App developed by a Korean company. For iOS users, I picked Airmix Solo (formerly named Live:Air Solo) by Taredek. The good news is CameraFi would charge you monthly while Airmix is totally free!

During the recent pandemic lock down, you may suddenly found many pop artists, singers turned home chefs appear on YouTube & demonstrate their cooking skills. Apart from shooting videos, some of them would also do live streaming, well, so as to have more real-time interaction with their target audiences.

I could tell you, especially when you're doing cooking live stream, a 'second' camera taking overhead shot or close-up of the food could make your stream content much more interesting.  As a Food & Travel Influencer, of course, Chloe knew very well about this little trick.    


Back to this test, I respectively installed Airmax Remote on my iphone & Airmax on iPad (this app could also run on iphone).  First, open Airmax Remote on iphone. Thi App could wirelessly transfer its camera image to my iPad using WiFi. Then open Airmax on iPad which allows you to switch camera (between iphone & iPad's), add watermark logo / images, text, pre-recorded videos, etc. while live streaming to facebook, youtube, twitch or any RMTP severs.  

Taredek is a US company specializes in manufacturing professional wireless video monitoring / cinema / broadcast equipment. After several trials, I would say this app is perfectly written & super easy to use. The only problem, according to my previous tests, lies in the user's own WiFi signal. 

Yeah, I found that if the WiFi speed is not fast enough, the second camera (in this test, it's my iphone) 's video image would look pixelated occasionally. Well, I think every wireless image transfer device would have this problem. Hopefully, this problem could be solved after Chloe upgrades her WiFi network in our next TEST.
