Created by Yuichiro Katsumoto, Mojigen and Sujigen is a collection of servo motors, connected together to write a letter by the means of manipulating the axis of the motor.

Mojigen and Sujigen – Writing letters and numbers with servos using a time axis

“A number or letter is a two-dimensional symbol. Also, it is a static image. But we cannot write a letter without moving our bodies and spending time. Thus, we can consider that each number or letter potentially has a time axis.” – Yuichiro Katsumoto In the first example (below) the motors are connected to each other where each motor can rotate the next one along. The second example (below) includes eight servo motors in alignment with each having another servo connected in its reach. Mojigen and Sujigen are also referred to as “One-Stroke” in English and “一筆” in Chinese. The research is supported by the National Research Foundation of the government of Singapore under a funding initiative from the Interactive Digital Media Programme Office.

Drohnen, die Farbbomben werfen

Pollockocopter heißen die Dinger und werden beim Reeperbahn Festivals im Rahmen einer Performance vorgeführt. „Der Maler Jackson Pollock hat mit seinen von Max Ernst inspirierten ‚drip paintings‘ Kunstgeschichte geschrieben. Durch seine Kunstwerke aus gespritzter Farbe wurde er 1956 vom Time Magazine mit „Jack the dripper“ tituliert. 60 Jahre später eifern Drohnenpiloten und Künstler dem Avantgardisten mit Drohnen nach. Giant-Scale Physical Pong. At first, we thought we were having deja vu, but then we saw this video embedded below.

[Thijs Eerens] is a creative technologist (dare we say, a “hacker”?) Who builds giant-scale games for a living. For the Lowlands festival in the Netherlands, he contributed to the build of a huge Pong game that looks as big as a cinema screen. Ungefragt 30 Schaukeln in Berlin aufgehängt: Einfach so.

Aug 8, 2016 | By Alec It’s a question that has haunted the sleepless nights of many 3D printer developers: how do you convince home users to purchase a 3D printer?

You can now print full color 3D holograms with regular inkjet printers

As it turns out, more people already have a 3D printer at their fingertips without even knowing it. MIT-backed startup Lumii has developed a new optics algorithm that lets users print full color 3D holographic photos, with perfect 3D parallax movement, on regular 2D inkjet printers. 3D is appearing everywhere, even in the second dimension. This remarkable new 3D printing opportunity was shown off at Siggraph 2016, a computer graphics and interactive techniques conference that was held in Anaheim, California in late July.

While packed with more innovations than you can count, the Lumii booth as particularly popular thanks to a cool interactive feature.

Artists have been using tablets to make 2D art for years now, and recently, the proliferation of VR headsets and software like Google's Tilt Brush have also allowed them to paint in 3D space.

But while both approaches can produce some beautiful art, neither offers the kind of tactile feedback you can get with a brush and some paint on a real-world canvas. That's what Adobe Research's Project Wetbrush hopes to change. Nvidia, who partnered with Adobe to produce the software, describe it as the "world's first real-time simulation-based 3D painting system with bristle-level interactions" — an app that allows artists to draw on 2D surfaces with virtual 3D paint.

Gullideckel zu Shirt-Motiven: Raubdruckerin. 3D Printering: G-Code Post Processing With Perl. Most of our beloved tools, such as Slic3r, Cura or KISSlicer, offer scripting interfaces that help a great deal if your existing 3D printing toolchain has yet to learn how to produce decent results with a five headed thermoplastic spitting hydra.

3D Printering: G-Code Post Processing With Perl

Using scripts, it’s possible to tweak the little bits it takes to get great results, inserting wipe or prime towers and purge moves on the fly, and if your setup requires it, also control additional servos and solenoids for the flamethrowers. This article gives you a short introduction in how to post-process G-code using Perl and Slic3r.

Perl Ninja skills are not required. Slic3r plays well with pretty much any scripting language that produces executables, so if you’re reluctant to use Perl, you’ll probably be able to replicate most of the steps in your favorite language. Getting Started All you need is Slic3r and Perl installed on your system. The Main Loop. This eerie short film was made with iron fillings and magnets. Iron fillings and ferrofluids are really cool to play with — hold a magnet under them and you get amazingly intricate pillars of metal.

This atmospheric short film Ferro puts this concept to the test. As the camera settles on a bank of silver snow, it becomes clear this miniature world is made to look like out own, though crafted from an alien-like material. What’s most impressive with this video is the tiny snippet of a story that they inject it with: there’s the spooky atmosphere, a gunshot and a startled deer, all leading to a figure walking away from a tiny body in the snow. Not all of this film is done with iron fragments — the deer and figures are computer generated. This Mark Zuckerberg GIF is the tip of the creepy iceberg.

His custom GIFs have appeared at museum exhibitions in Paris, Stockholm, Amsterdam, New York, and of course, Cleveland. Presented via projection, the looped animations critique culture, the military, religion, capitalism, the looming threat of a techno-dystopia, and art itself. This is what 100 Tinder screenshots look like in a single image. There really are a surprising number of humans in the world, and a lot of them live near you. Sometimes you forget, but Tinder offers a helpful reminder. There's nothing like swiping through dozens of profiles, taking in new face after new face, to remember how much sheer humanity there is around. But sometimes it all gets a bit much. This is what 100 Tinder screenshots look like in a single image. Circuit Bender Artist bends Fresnel Lens for Art. Give some mundane, old gear to an artist with a liking for technology, and he can turn it into a mesmerizing piece of art.

[dmitry] created “red, an optic-sound electronic object” which uses simple light sources and optical elements to create an audio-visual performance installation. The project was the result of his collaboration with the Prometheus Special Design Bureau in Kazan, Russia. The inspiration for this project was Crystall, a reconstruction of an earlier project dating back to 1966. The idea behind “red” was to recreate the ideas and concepts from the 60’s ~ 80’s using modern solutions and materials.

The main part of the art installation consists of a ruby red crystal glass and a large piece of flexible Fresnel lens, positioned in front of a bright LED light source. Check out some of [dmitry]’s earlier works which we featured.
