Social data is exploding and scientists, like Hilary, are gaining new insights into human behavior. But how can we use this data to create something meaningful? How can all of us - scientists, developers, artists, and other innovators - work together to build tools or products that make the world more productive, interesting and beautiful?

Join 501c3 Urban ReThink for an inspirational day with a leading creative mind. May 6th, 2012 at 1:30pm at Urban ReThink, 625 E Central Blvd. There will be a special luncheon at noon before the talk for sponsors of the event. See Urban ReThink for sponsor opportunities.

Florida Creatives is now hosting a monthly Show and Tell on the 1st Tuesday of every month at Urban ReThink. July 5th will be the third event, and we are always looking for new participants - anyone is welcome to attend.

Here is a Facebook video of Nathan's Show and Tell - a multi-dimensional pendulum installation with three screens, and three controls, two for parameters, and one to rotate the graphic in the center.

Animatronics Experimenter's Kit

1 BookmarksLog in to bookmark

Aaron Fecther, creator of Showbiz Pizza's Rockafire Explosion, sells a kit for making a talking head animatronic robot. In this example he uses an air compressor, a light switch and a cassette deck to control the performance - exactly the same technology he used in the 1970s. A lot of people in the YouTube comments ask about using computers or MIDI, and I'm sure this is possible as well.

You can buy the kits from http://www.aaronskit.com
