    www.florianborn.com Multi-touch devices like the iPad have become more and more popular over the last couple of years. Nowadays they are not only used for browsing and sending e-mails, but also as a medium for new fields of applications. One particular thing of multi-touch devices is in need of improvement: It is the lack of haptic feedback, which makes it difficult to set parameters precisely.  Regarding to this problem the project has been developed to provide a variety of physical controllers. These controllers expand the usage of a touch device with a haptic feedback while adjusting parameters. By using magnets, the different controllers can easily be arranged onto the iPad. A modular interface appears, which uses a given device just like the iPad. The system contains three different parts: - The physical controllers (button, slider and knob), made out of conductive aluminium to pass on the electrical discharge of the human skin.   - A frame, made out of aluminium and plastic, in which the iPad is inserted. The edge of the frame has embedded magnets, making it possible to position the controller precisely and easily.   - The software, running as an app on the iPad. It organizes the control elements and sends the parameters to the corresponding software, which is controlled by the modular interface. The controllers are made of aluminium because of its property to forward electrical charge. Therefore, the electrical discharge of the human skin can be transmitted to the touchscreen of the iPad. To prevent the control devices from screeching the display, a piece of conductive foam is used on the end of each controller. An app programmed in Cinder/C++ is running on the iPad. It manages the individual setup of the controllers and reads their input on the touchscreen. The app then transfers the information via OSC to a connected application.

    • PopFab Episode 1 - Introduction

      PopFab is a multi-tool for the 21st century. At its heart is a computer-controlled motion platform and a means of attaching various toolheads. These enable PopFab to make objects from a digital plan in a variety of ways: current capabilities include 3D printing (as you are about to see), milling, vinyl cutting, and drawing -- with more on the way. PopFab has traveled the world as a carry-on item of luggage to Saudi Arabia and Germany, and within the USA to Aspen in Colorado. We hope that this is only the beginning.

      • Blind Self Portrait

        While the visitor keeps their eyes shut, a moving platform guides a pen in their hand to draw a self-portrait, using computer vision to track their face and generate a line drawing. The result is a machine-aided drawing, a self-portrait you could never draw. Here we're testing an early version that moves about a half or third the speed of the more recent versions. "Blind Self Portrait" is a collaboration between Matt Mets and Kyle McDonald, installed for the first time at the NYC Resistor interactive show https://interactiveshow2012.eventbrite.com/?ref=ecount Installed: https://vimeo.com/44489751 Photos: http://flickr.com/photos/kylemcdonald/sets/72157629813858248/ Source: https://github.com/kylemcdonald/BlindSelfPortrait

          Piccolo is a pocket-sized stand-alone CNC platform. For less than $70, you can assemble your personal Arduino-compatible kit for tinkering, developing and deploying basic 3D output. Be it plotting quick graffiti, printing a one-off business card on the fly, or multiple Piccolos working together to create a large mural, this kit provides a platform for experimenting with 2D or 3D digital fabrication at a small scale. This open-source design emphasizes simplicity, and is entirely composed of digitally manufactured components and inexpensive off-the-shelf hardware. www.piccolo.cc by: Tiago Rorke | Diatom Studio, www.tiago.co.nz Greg Saul | Diatom Studio, www.gregsaul.co.uk Cheng Xu | CMU CoDe Lab, www.cheeriocheng.com Huaishu Peng | CMU CoDe Lab, www.huaishu.me music: Wet Wings - Last Day of Summer | wetwings.lilchiefrecords.com/track/last-day-of-summer

            made by benjamin ducroz www.ducroz.com STOPCYCLE is a series of 25 small scale sculptures, which as an ensemble create a seamless 25 frame animated loop. the work explores changes of form, and sound using repetition through time.  the sculptures shapes are organic and layered in form, much like topographical maps.  the forms are descriptions of anatomical regions, as well as being formal experiments in geometry and motion.  their shapes are infinitely cycling, beginning anew once they end - they can be interpreted as tangible, shapeshifting clocks. the 25 frame loop is based on a procedural texture named ‘Perlin noise’. Perlin noise is a computer generated visual effect developed by Ken Perlin in the 1980’s. it is a gradient noise used by visual effects artists to increase the appearance of realism in computer graphics. it is a fractal landscape exhibiting some form of statistical self-similarity to natural phenomena. the technique is commonly used in computer generated graphics to create the effect of randomness in textures and landscapes. STOPCYCLE employs these techniques and presents them physically utilising the mediums of sculpture and stopframe animation.

                    This project is a collaboration between MWM Graphics, aarn, and Paper Fortress Films. The process of creating a "drawing" using a numerically controlled Sharpie is documented in a short video. Vector graphics are converted into a tool path and then a machine language which controls a 3-axis CNC machine retrofitted with a special fixture that holds a marker and mimics hand pressure during the act of drawing. Thirty-three mechanical drawings in three designs were produced using this process. Vector Graphic Art: MWM Graphics -- [http://mwmgraphics.blogspot.com/] Digital Fabrication/Design: aarn -- [http://44rn.com] Video Production: Paper Fortress Films -- [http://paperfortressfilms.com] A limited number of drawings made using this process are available in the MWM Graphics Online Store -- [http://mwmgraphics.com/store.html].
