Created by Félix Luque Sánchez and Iñigo Bilbao, Memory Lane is a sculptural representation and investigation into memory and space by questioning human capacity of generating fiction, either by means of a simple child’s game or of a complex technological process.
Created by Luiz Zanotello at the University of the Arts, Bremen, The New Velocity is a machine designed to plot the phantom Sandy Island using digital as a new analogy for its existence. The project investigates a charting error that persisted in cartographic maps even after the advent of digital media. It speculates how data and physical phenomena are entangled, and how in contemporaneity, the two have the same weight under digital media.
Developed at the MIT Media Lab’s Fluid Interfaces Group, Reality Editor allows users to merge digital and physical realities into a unified experience.
Created by Felix Ros, Stewart is a hypothetical tactile interface designed for a fully autonomous car with objective to accommodate a healthy relation between man and machine.
Created by Eun Young Park, LINKKI is a kinetic construction toy based on planar linkage mechanism which allows users to design and prototype kinetic movements.
Created by Felix Heibeck, Basheer Tome and Clark Della Silva with supervision from Hiroshi Ishii at the MIT’s Tangible Media Group, uniMorph is an enabling technology for rapid digital fabrication of customized thin-film shape-changing interfaces.
Created by Maxime Castelli at ECAL (Bachelor Media & Interaction Design), Nelson is a tiny connected module designed to bring life remotely to everyday objects. It’s based on a very simple foreward and backward movement as we do in the everyday life, like pushing a switch.
Created by Bryan Ma at Parsons, Definitions is a computational poetry installation made up of 15 networked LCDs that searches MIT’s ConceptNet to serve as a metaphor for the use of NLP in commoditizing human activity on the internet.
The OpenSurgery project investigates whether building DIY surgical robots, outside the scope of medical regulations, could plausibly provide an accessible alternative to costly professional healthcare services worldwide.
Created by Oliver Smith and Francesco Tacchini, The Network Ensemble is a tool to sonically uncover and amplify the invisible territory of the networks that sit between our offline and online experiences.
Created by Neil Mendoza, The Electric Knife Orchestra consists of sixteen knives and one meat cleaver (all purchased from the $0.99 store) that have been brought to life to perform the Bee Gee’s hit Stayin’ Alive.
Created by Mo H. Zareei, Rasper, Mutor and Rippler are a series of mechatronic sound-sculptures inspired by Brutalist architecture. The instruments are grouped into three different categories, based on the material and sound production mechanism they employ.
