December 29, 2020 | Rasmus Bååth

This was my submission to the 2020 RStudio Table Contest. For many good reasons it didn’t qualify, you can check out all those good reasons here: Winners of the 2020 RStudio Table Contest. Some tables are beautiful. And yes, I’m talking about the s... [Read more...]

Image Dithering in R

January 22, 2019 | Rasmus Bååth

This January I played the most intriguing computer game I’ve played in ages: The Return of the Obra Dinn. Except for being a masterpiece of murder-mystery storytelling it also has the most unique art-style as it only uses black and white pixels. To... [Read more...]

August 9, 2015 | Rasmus Bååth
