3D Printed Music

Rather than printing something 'useful' the servoengine of the printer is used to play music, and as a by product objects appear. Using a Lulzbot 3D-printer to visualize different classical musical pieces. The project explores the alternative uses of 3D-printers. It's being used to create unique art by printing classical pieces of music while at the same time acting as an instrument and performing the music itself. The step motors controlling the movement can be run at different speeds, the speed decides the pitch of the sound and makes it possible for the motors to make music.

Pieces performed during the exhibit: 1. 3D-printed music from Rickard Dahlstrand on Vimeo. Project Github. Hendo Hoverboards - World's first REAL hoverboard by Hendo Hover. Jack-radcliffe. Blade Runner's Special Special Effects - Still Untitled - 6/4/2013. Junior Designers vs. Senior Designers — The Year of the Looking Glass. Death and Treasure — Matter. Barry, the curator, moves around the gallery and chatters excitedly about Zak.

Death and Treasure — Matter

It’s the first time one of his paintings has been shown in a private gallery on the West Coast and getting a Zak Smith here is a coup, particularly this one, which Barry says is a masterpiece. In a show filled with Mapplethorpes and Max Snows, a prime Tom of Finland, and etchings by Picasso, it carries the second-highest price tag. Outside, tan people in jeans and white gauze, the last of Rolls Royce guru culture, gather and drink wine with aging producers in peach blazers and alabaster shirts. A young Polynesian woman in an ivory dress binds her glorious hair. In the distance, palm trees tilt seaward, boulevards without sidewalks run west. She’s Trouble, She’s Trouble, She’s Trouble is (40 x 30.5 in).

Standing in front of it, I get hit on by a screenwriter in Bob Crane sunglasses with a bloom of spider veins across his nose who tells me he’s a genius. Through the crowd, Zak pushes a wheelchair. He laughs. Why Talented Creatives Are Leaving Your Shitty Agency. Over the past few months it seems like I keep having the same conversation over and over again with friends in dozens of agencies around London, it usually starts off like this: “Who do you think is the best agency is at the moment?

Why Talented Creatives Are Leaving Your Shitty Agency

Is anyone doing good work?” And ends with them explaining why they are thinking of moving on. The reasons why are always the same: “I want to work on an actual product people want to use”“I want to build my own thing”“I want to explore more new technology and ideas not gimmicks”“We never do any interesting work”“We only care about hitting targets”“I don’t feel like I’m learning”“We never push back and tell the client their ideas are shit” The exodus of talent we’ve been hearing so much about at executive/director level is now filtering down to smart young digital/mobile creatives, planners and account managers.

And can you blame them? Agencies on the other hand are happy to keep trying to live in a world which is ceasing to exist. Interstellar Movie - Official Trailer 3. 3D Printed Titanium Skull In Chinese Man. Hacker Turns His Living Room into Mario Kart. Woo!

Hacker Turns His Living Room into Mario Kart

ヽ(゚∀゚)ノ I think the most impressive part— because I've seen nothing like it before, even in commercial stuff —is that dynamically-generated track. I mean, wow! I can't wait for him to release the source code so those of us without iOS devices (or Romos) can go wild adapting it work with whatever! Theoretically, it should be possible to control any simple R/C vehicle through something like an Arduino (Since both steering and throttle are handled as servo inputs/outputs on standard R/C cars, and servos are easy-peasy), as a pass-through, and it can 'inject' any commands from the 'game' such as making the vehicle spin out, or doubling the throttle input...
