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.
RC4 in London researches computational design methodologies for large-scale 3D printing with industrial robots, taking logistical, structural and material constraints as design opportunities to generate non-representational architectural spaces with extreme information density.
Rising Colorspace is a new installation by the Sonice Development duo comprised of a third ‘systemic robot’ drawing it’s rising movements as bow-like lines onto a shiny metallic wall.
Minibuilders is a research project comprised of a family of small-scale construction robots designed to perform diverse tasks, linked to the different phases of construction, finally working together as a family towards the implementation of a single structural outcome.
Make Longer Cables is a short film including a custom made five-axis robotic arm that is trying to escape monotony by committing suicide.
Created by Andreas Gysin in collaboration with Sidi Vanetti, Fari is a kinetic installation created with an array of moving light heads in a geometric configuration and programmed as a choreography.
