Omer Fast Voir le portrait filmé de l'exposition : Basé essentiellement sur l’image en mouvement, le travail d’Omer Fast explore la complexité de la narration à travers une pratique qui trouble les frontières entre le « réel » et la « représentation ». Si l’origine de ses histoires est souvent documentaire, leur construction s’affranchit cependant d’une démarche naturaliste et résiste à toute conclusion ou révélation d’une « vérité » ultime du récit. Omer Fast s’intéresse au rapport entre individu et collectivité, à la façon dont les événements sont transformés en mémoires et histoires ainsi qu’à leurs modes de circulation et de médiatisation. Ainsi, l’artiste interroge les politiques de représentation, dans la continuité de projets qui, au sein de la programmation du Jeu de Paume, ont proposé de nouvelles formes narratives dans le champ de la vidéo et de l’installation. Né à Jérusalem en 1972, Omer Fast a grandi au milieu de langues et cultures différentes. Fast est avant tout un narrateur.

NEW YORK CITY DRONE FILM FESTIVAL Video: Watch Harvard’s Teeny-Tiny Robotic Insect Take Flight | Danger Room It’s about the size of a quarter. Its translucent wings flap a frantic 120 times per second. Its buzz involuntarily makes you aware of the hairs on the back of your neck. It’s a robot. The video above shows the RoboBee. Harvard scientists have been working for a decade on the design, inspired by the biology of a fly (never mind the name). Shrinking a flying robot is harder than it might seem. The idea is to use the teeny-tiny robot for missions like environmental monitoring, crop pollination or search-and-rescue operations, making the Bee a host body for teeny-tiny cameras. Manufacturing challenges remain. But in a press release, the manufacturers set out high expectations for the next phases of the RoboBee project. “Flies perform some of the most amazing aerobatics in nature using only tiny brains,” said Sawyer B.

eMotionButterflies | Festo Corporate Flying is a recurring theme in the Bionic Learning Network. The developers channelled their knowledge gained from the projects on the BionicOpter and the eMotionSpheres into the bionic butterflies. They combine the ultralight construction of artificial insects with coordinated flying behaviour in a collective. Ten cameras installed in the room record the butterflies using their infrared markers. The cameras transmit the position data to a central master computer, which coordinates the butterflies from outside. The intelligent networking system creates a guidance and monitoring system, which could be used in the networked factory of the future. With the butterflies themselves, Festo is taking another step into the areas of miniaturisation, lightweight construction and functional integration.

Video shows Dutch police training the birds of prey to take down drones in mid-air  From radio jamming to robots with nets, many ideas have been tested to down drones snooping where they shouldn't be. But the Dutch National Police is taking a less technological approach to enforcing drone laws. A video reveals it is training eagles to catch the menacing machines in mid-air, taking them down in one fell swoop. Scroll down for videos The Dutch National Police is training eagles to catch drones (pictured) in a bid to safely tackle aircraft in secure areas or over crowds where they shouldn't be. Mark Wiebe, innovation manager of the National Unit of the police, said drone use is becoming more common, with people using them to take photographs, for example. But they can be dangerous if they fall from the sky above crowds of people. 'There are situations in which drones are not allowed to fly. To intercept rogue drones, the police force has teamed up with Guard From Above - a bird of prey training company in Denmark - to test the raptors' intelligence and accuracy. Loaded: 0%

Nadav Assor | Ophan (2014) Ophan is an installation incorporating a physically restrained, customized hexacopter as a mechanized cantor, flying and reciting all 28 verses of chapter 1 from the biblical book of Ezekiel. When Ophan is at rest, with no people present at the center of the space, the hexacopter softly hums, whispers, or even sings to itself (its favorite song is “Someone to Watch Over Me”). When a presence is detected in the space, the hexacopter’s rotors turn on and it takes flight, struggling against the cables that restrain it, singing and gesturing its way through all the biblical verses mentioned above, as sung in Hebrew in the Yemenite tradition by the Cantor Dan Jacobi. The Yemenite style of Cantorial singing-chanting (cantillation) is monotonous – that is, there is no melody, rather a droning recitation similar to other eastern musical traditions.

La première course de drones contrôlés par l'esprit s'est déroulée en Floride ! - H+ MAGAZINE Tandis que les courses de drones se répandent à travers la planète et gagnent peu à peu en notoriété, notamment grâce au nouveau partenariat avec ESPN, les courses de drones contrôlés par la pensée, c’est du jamais vu ! La semaine dernière, dans le cadre de son programme de Recherche sur les Systèmes d’Aéronefs Inhabités (UAV), l’Université de Floride a organisé la première course de drones contrôlés par le cerveau. Au programme, 16 compétiteurs qui doivent en découdre au cours de quatre tours pour arriver sur le podium final et soulever le trophée. Des compétiteurs issus du monde entier et de toutes les spécialités se sont empressés de s’inscrire à cette course inédite. L’exploit repose sur la technologie Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) qui consiste à construire des images de notre cerveau dans le but de contrôler des machines grâce à la pensée.
