    www.ben-dror.com/the-abovemarine @adambendror Over a period of a few weeks I trained my Siamese fighting fish (betta splendens) José to jump out the water and get food off my finger. He also learnt to follow my hand as I moved it around the outside of his tank. Inspired by these interactions, the Abovemarine is a vehicle that enables José, or any other fish to roam on the land freely. This small freedom allows him to Interact with other species including humans and small animals. José is able to successfully navigate around a room, as he swims backwards (stopping the Abovemarine) before hitting obstacles. The Abovemarine is not fish freedom. It is not a product and it is not for fish to live in (and they don't). José and the Abovemarine engage our interest in the beauty and intelligence of these creatures. We are encouraged to ask questions that challenge our preconceived notions about fish and other living creatures. "Does the fish have intention?", "Does the fish understand what he is doing?", "Do fish have memories?". The Abovemarine moves using Omni Wheels, allowing it to travel in any direction without first having to turn. Without this mechanism, the tank would get stuck in a feedback loop, spinning in a circle every time José, who moves relative to the tank, swam left or right. José's movement is tracked using a camera and computer vision. While the Abovemarine was developed independently, I have since been made aware of Ken Rinaldo's Augmented Fish Reality (2004) and Garnet Hertz's Cockroach Controlled Mobile Robot (2004).

    • TightLight: Automatic 3D Projection Mapping Method

      TightLight is the codename for an automatic 3D projection mapping method devised by (me) Grady Sain. It's a fast, accurate, cheap, and dependable way to projection map any number of objects of any size or shape. I developed this technique after many years experience designing and directing projection mapped events and shows. I used Touch Designer 088 to develop the system. It interfaces with Arduino hardware and custom built circuits.

        This is the Xylobot, our submission for the Berlin Music Hack Day, held on September 18-20 at Radialsystem V. A custom Java app receives midi data from the step sequencer and controls the Arduino over a serial connection. The board then triggers the servos to hit on the xylophone. The whole construction was built in under 24 hours and is mostly made of hot glue and wood. Made by Ramsey Arnaoot and myself Check out the other awesome hacks @ http://berlin.musichackday.org/?page=Submissions See http://robb.is/working-on/the-xylobot/ for more info

                You can put any music you want on any time in our studio, no rules. It’s a democratic system that seems to work 99% of the time. But occasionally the system fails and that’s what inspired me to build this poster. Want one?

                  I've had a huge urge to play with hardware for a while now but only recently started getting into it. This is my first project using the Arduino. I programmed it so that Flash can talk to the Arduino in order to light up the LEDs. Pretty exciting!
