Created by Alexia Léchot at ECAL, Deltu is a delta robot with a personality that interacts with humans using two iPads. Created using arm technology normally found in 3d printers, Deltu uses three different applications on the iPad Alexia built for it, using symmetry as an interpretation, a mirror and a reflexion of our own image.
Created by Hansje van Halem, an independent graphic designer based in Amsterdam (NL). the following video and images are the latest in the series of experiments that explore tension between a systematic approach, legibility, and (ir)regularity in typography.
Created by Juncheng Chen, Siyuan Jing and Lydia Zhou at the Bartlett School of Architecture (Interactive Architecture Lab), this project explores possibilities in mobile structures by investigating various strategies for locomotion.
Created by Riccardo Lardi, The Reality Gap is a research project that investigates how robot movements evoke empathy towards humans and speculates where will the next generation of robotic systems come from and where will they go.
Exploring behavior based design systems that are self-aware, mobile, and self-structure / assemble. The following is the work AADRL Spyropoulos Design Lab at the Architectural Association School of Architecture, in London.
This research project by Gramazio Kohler Research at ETH Zurich titled ‘Mesh Mould’ investigates the unification of reinforcement and formwork into a single robotically fabricated material system. Developed with the use of industrial robots, the process allows ‘spatial robotic extrusion’, creating interdependencies of mesh typology and concrete.
ofxRobotArm is an openFrameworks addon for doing creative things with robot arms. The goal of the addon is to remove as many technical barriers as possible to get up and running with 6-axis robots.
Created by Madeline Gannon, Quipt is a gesture-based control software that facilitates new ways to communicate with industrial robots.
Created by convivial project, The Probable Universe is an interactive audio-visual installation generating an infinite combination of projected worlds in a physical environment using an industrial robotic arm.
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 the team at FIG.- Amana Prototyping Lab in Japan, Rhythmic Gymnastics is a practical experiment using a Denso VS-050S2 robotic arm. In this experiment the aim is to represent the sensibility of human movement using harsh robot mechanics.
Earlier this year at ECAL (Lausanne/Switzerland), students were asked to develop projects using the Thymio robot during a one week workshop. Students worked then in group with the task to make Thymio(s) write a word, all those words was then put together to form a sentences that you can discover in the video below.
