Self-Assembly Lab interactive painting by scott garner interactive 'still life' by scott garner american developer scott garner has created ' still life ', an interactive gallery work that responds to real-world activity. set in a wooden frame, the fruits and vases of the seemingly ordinary still life painting begin to tumble when a user rotates the work. garner creates the world 'inside' the painting using the game developing program unity 3D , where he creates a scene that consists of a camera and all desired lights and objects. this is projected via a flat-screen television screen (the frame and 'canvas') fixed on a rotating mount. attached to its back is a spatial sensor to detect tilt. a driving program written in C communicates with the sensor and interacts with the unity 3D scene to respond to users' rotation of the frame. the project was funded by US-based design agency süperfad . video demo of the device view of the painting before tilting view of the painting after interaction via thenextweb

Uno 1 wheel Motorcycle The bike Uno from BPG Motors is a Transformers Segway Motorcycle. The new version Uno III has 3 wheels which when combined together give the impression that this is a motorcycle with one single wheel. Uno 3 can be transformed into a normal bike with a wheel that will put forward its own. Here the prototype BPG Motors seems more advanced and the startup has received funding and assistance from investors in a reality tv show (see in the video). Its price is about $ 6000, which is fair given that you have a bike right out of the future. Here at Vegas, with techno music : More Info on

A Sample Aerial Drone Photography Business Plan Template Are you about starting a UAV (drone) photography business? If YES, here’s a complete sample aerial drone photography business plan template & feasibility report you can use for FREE to raise money. Okay, so we have considered all the requirements for starting a drone photography business. We also took it further by analyzing and drafting a sample aerial drone photography marketing plan template backed up by actionable guerrilla marketing ideas for aerial drone photography companies. So let’s proceed to the business planning section. Table of Content Why Start a Aerial Drone Photography Business? Drone technology is rapidly gaining prominence in the globe beyond the military circuit. Drones are also used by the military to deliver foods to front line troops during war. There are a lot you need to know and learn about drone technology before making up your mind to go into aerial drone photography. Business Overview Some states in the US are strict when it comes to trespassing laws as well.

Self-publishing Hod Lipson Mycelium [Processing] - Fungal hyphae growth using images as food //app by @notlion Mycelium is a simulation of fungal hyphae growth using images as food, created by Ryan Alexander. The project originally started in 2005 while he was working at Logan in Venice, California. Click images to see full size. Hyphae grow into the lighter areas of the image while avoiding their own trails. Created with Processing. Mycelium How Drones Are Revolutionizing the Energy Industry — Dr. Drone Previous to drone technology, helicopters or industrial climbers would have to perform inspections on power lines. Not only would this pose a risk to employees, it was also a much slower and costly process. Industrial climbers would have to climb posts to access power lines, and helicopters would be extremely expensive and intrusive. In contrast to manned aerial vehicles or placing people in dangerous situations, drones are a much safer, quieter, and environmentally friendly alternative. With high quality imagery, operators can assess the condition of power lines, to prevent damage and potential outages from occurring. A drone performing routine and regular inspections with pre-programmed waypoints can also provide high quality imagery from optimal perspectives, and give operators a detailed analysis of any malfunctions. Prepare for Take-off When it comes to the future of drone technology, automation is going to be a key advancement in the years to come.

Applied Innovation Animal Architecture: Buckminster Fuller's Tensegrity In 1932 R. Buckminster Fuller famously philosophized: "Don't fight forces. Use them!" Fuller originally coined the term tensegrity, a portmanteau of tensional integrity, while studying "energetic-synergetic geometry" during World War II. Tensegrity describes a structural-relationship principle in which structural shape is guaranteed by the finitely closed, comprehensively continuous, tensional behaviors of the system and not by the discontinuous and exclusively local compressional member behaviors. Tensegrity structures fall into two main categories -- prestressed and geodesic. Geodesic tensegrity structures are "frameworks made up of rigid struts, each of which can bear tension or compression" (Ingber 49). The presence of tensegrity structures is not limited to avant-garde architecture, however. On an anatomical level, the human body provides a good example of a prestressed tensegrity structure. Several geodesic tensegrity structures naturally occur on the molecular level. Works Cited

Laws of Simplicity | By John Maeda Von Neumann universal constructor The first implementation of von Neumann's self-reproducing universal constructor.[1] Three generations of machine are shown: the second has nearly finished constructing the third. The lines running to the right are the tapes of genetic instructions, which are copied along with the body of the machines. The machine shown runs in a 32-state version of von Neumann's cellular automata environment, not his original 29-state specification. John von Neumann's Universal Constructor is a self-replicating machine in a cellular automata (CA) environment. Von Neumann's specification defined the machine as using 29 states, these states constituting means of signal carriage and logical operation, and acting upon signals represented as bit streams. Purpose[edit] Von Neumann's design has traditionally been understood to be a demonstration of the logical requirements for machine self-replication.[3] However it is clear that far simpler machines can achieve self-replication. Implementation[edit] C.
