Arduino Projects #2


Hello everyone it has been a while scince I posted some Arduino Projects , so I thought it was time to bring out more here are a couple of nice projects I have found in my quest, I have lots of things going on this days I hope in a couple of weeks I can start playing with my arduino board and firefly the plugin for Grasshopper for making some experiments with some sensors I have waiting to be used.

Adaptive Fa[ca]de by Marilena Skavara

Adaptive fa[CA]de from marilena on Vimeo.

Adaptive Fa[ca]de explores the functional possibilities and performative characteristics of cellular automata (CA). In addition to the unique emergent behaviour of CA, a neural network enables a further computational layer to evolve CA behaviour to the context of its surrounding environment. Building upon the early work of Conway’s ‘Game of life’ and Stephen Wolfram’s extensive research on the wider implementation of CA, ‘Adaptive Fa[ca]de’ becomes a living adapting skin, constantly training itself from the history of its own errors and achievements.


FINE COLLECTION OF CURIOUS SOUND OBJECTS  by Georg Reil

FINE COLLECTION OF CURIOUS SOUND OBJECTS from Georg Reil on Vimeo.

The arrangement includes six exceptional exhibits from the world of sounds and acoustics. At first sight looking trivial, each object incorporates a very unique ability.

The magical character of each object is accompanied with a little story, almost completely concealing the existence of technical components such as speakers or sensors. Only small connection ports as well as the uniform black finishing point to their unusual abilities.
Processing is used for recording live audio input, modifying the playback and generating digital sound according to sensor data.
In form and functionality all these exhibits pursue John Maeda’s „Simplicity“. They are enjoying to use, they are surprising and one wants to explore and investigate them.
