Art Hack Day | Packt

Mon, 12/01/2014 - 14:05 -- rprice

an event for hackers whose medium is art and artists whose medium is tech. A typical Art Hack Day event brings together 60 artist-hackers and hacker-artists to collaborate on new works in a hackathon-style sprint of 48 hours leading up to a public exhibition and party. The artworks often demonstrate the expressive power of new technology, radical collaboration in art or a critical look at how technology affects society. The technology used is typically open, and sharing source code online is encouraged.

Take A Trip Into an Enchanted Forest In Quebec | Motherboard

Tue, 11/25/2014 - 14:21 -- rprice

From the same arts and technology troupe that produced the Osheaga visuals and live effects, to the Super Bowl halftime show, comes the "Foresta Lumina": a 20-30 minute luminous pathway experience inside an actual forest north of Montreal. The forest mixes interactive characters and high tech installations with giant projectors, laser printed lights, and futuristic costume design. The forest is their canvas and their interactive space is made to pop with their next level tech.

ichard Horne (RichRap) is an Electronics Engineer, Product Designer, Salesman, and Problem Solver working in a wide range of industries and applications, across many platforms and technologies for the last 20 years. My interest and passion for 3D printing started in 2009 after visiting the RepRap project website and reading a series of blog posts by another highly dedicated developer, Nophead. RichRap started blogging, designing and developing with 3D printing shortly after.

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.

▶ Wearable neuroheadsets: on mind-controlling our environment - YouTube

Thu, 01/23/2014 - 11:14 -- rprice

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 piantella ♥s interaction design

Fri, 12/20/2013 - 19:40 -- rprice

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.

The pi 3D Scanner

Fri, 11/15/2013 - 00:06 -- rprice

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.
