This is a project by Peter Krige, Alexander du Preez and Hannes Harms, students of Innovation Design Engineering at the Royal College of Art.
“Living Artefacts” is a project by Stefan Schwabe, a student of Design Interactions at the Royal College of Art. Stefan is exploring the subject of “natural” and “artificial” by using bacterial cellulose to harvest artefacts.
Since electric cars are increasingly using synthesised sounds in order to mimic the recognisable noise of the internal combustion engine, Mark McKeague explores an alternative in which the sound that the cars generate changes according to its relationship to other road users and the environment.
The Superstitious Fund Project is a trading algorithm that operates Superstitiously designed by Shing Tat Chung, a student of Design Interactions at the RCA. It is is a live experiment in which an algorithm trades based on superstitious beliefs. Shing designed the autonomous algorithm to make decisions based on lunar cycles and numerology. It is also programmed to develop […]
