Clearly using samples of a piano when it hits an area of contrast. The comment thread on Vimeo is great.

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

FAMiLab Rapid Prototyping

At BarCampOrlando this weekend, i met Dave from TEDxOrlando - he showed me his TEDx business card holder, and told me it was printed by a rapid prototyping robot down at FAMiLab.

They have a lot of fun toys down there, and I have just found out they also have a mailing list:

We've seen that Square was able to use the iPhone's headphone jack to run a credit card scanner - now some hackers are using it to power sensors like a moisture sensor or an EKG.

As seen on Collin's Lab from Make Magazine's blog:

I don't know if Collin just talks like that, or if he's affected, but he does have a cool project.

A Lego Robot that Builds Lego Houses

0 BookmarksLog in to bookmark

Making your own rapid prototyping machines at home is now not uncommon, but this is one of the first meta-bots I've seen - a robot made of Lego parts that prints using Lego parts as the raw material. Apparently, you can design the creations in a Lego CAD program, and feed them to this machine. It even presses down the bricks!
