Actively Building a Robot while learning math, science and engineering. Being on the front lines of technology education, and using that technology to learn the math,science and engineering which is so hard to pick up in a passive chalk talk. Being involved on a competitive robotics team. Whether it's VEX, USFIRST, MATE or LEGO, robotics competitions provide an academic benchmark with a sports like competition. Kids are really motivated to excel because they are involved in something that is real to them.
Mind-controlled computing is a new field. So new, that in 2009, Emotiv Systems open-sourced their brainwave-reading headset to developers and researchers to help drive innovation. Musician Richard Warp responded to the challenge. Warp is a composer, married to a neuroscientist, who believes in creating music with your mind. Using a neuroheadset (his is an Emotiv EPOC, but there are plenty of brain-computer interfaces (BCI) on the market these days for under $100), he built a generative music system that responds to the brain signal.
Benedetta was born and raised in Parma, Italy. She received a BFA from Tufts University and SMFA Boston in 2004, while taking courses at Harvard, MIT and Mass Art. During her time in Boston, she worked as teaching assistant at SMFA introducing new technologies in the world of digital photography and light sensitive materials. She assisted in the preparation of the American Pavilion of the 50th Venice Biennale in 2003, while working for the MIT LIST Visual Arts Center in Cambridge. The same year she organized her own emergency response efforts during the Tsunami of 2004 in Sri Lanka.
Each pole has 3 Raspberry Pies with the Pi Camera (5m pixel). The raspberries are connected to the network. Each network cable I custom made, using 4 wires for the actual networking (100mb) and 2 wires to supply 5 volt for the raspberry from one central powerfull powersupply (5v 60A). setup_illustration Each Raspberry connects to the central NAS (Qnap TS109) and load the listening software. This software listen on the network for a specific network broadcast. When this broadcast is received, each raspberry will take a photo.
FlipBooKit is from kinetic artists, Mark Rosen and Wendy Marvel. They create moving art that tells stories and tickles our sense of nostalgia. In late 2011, their series of motorized flipbooks based on the motion studies of Edweard Muybridge began touring with galleries, art shows and at special events internationally.
KIKK, Namur, Belgium / October 2013 in collaboration with Kati Hyyppä “A cyborg, short for ‘cybernetic organism’, is a being with both organic and artificial parts." KIKK invited Kati and me to give a workshop in Namur around the theme “Next Utopia”. We were free to make what we wanted, and decided that it would be cool to transform ourselves into cyborgs! The workshop space was also ideal for reaching the next level of human development: A Renaissance style, empty church full of divine iconography. Regarding the cyborg building materials, we decided to leave computers and electronics out.
Technology is revolutionizing the way kids are learning, from tablets and laptops in classrooms, to introducing coding curricula in public schools. We'll be talking to representatives of three very different educational tech companies, including One Laptop Per Child, SparkFun and Code.org.
Faz was the creative mind behind many of Jim Henson's greatest technical achievements, including lots of remote-controlled puppets like Doozers and Gorgs, muppets riding bikes, and more.
Proof that video games are art isn't just on the screen. Sometimes it can be right in front of you, in the form of an arcade classic that swallows a whole room or tricked-out gloves that let you throw a Street Fighter fireball. The video game art that viewers saw at the recent Babycastles Summit—along with a controversial hacked NES game that tackled racism and a Guitar Hero sequel that never happened— wasn't just manifested in button presses. It merged the physical and virtual worlds of play in a series of exhibits that sprang from the mind Katamari Damacy creator Keita Takahashi.
A thought-controlled car, a solar-powered drone and a piece for a lunar vehicle were among more than 70 senior engineering projects on display April 19 at the University of Central Florida Senior Design Day Showcase and 5th Annual Senior Design Symposium on Renewable and Sustainable Energy. The projects are done by the 350 engineering students getting ready to graduate.
