    • Thomas Porter's Splendid Cycles


      from PORCUAPA Added 32.7K 238 23

      Brooklyn resident William Thomas Porter builds wonderful - and really weird - bikes. "I wouldn't call them mutants," he says of his bike caricatures, "because that would make them sound ugly. It's more like creating this... new splendid form." We followed him around for a about a year documenting his projects and cajoling him into demonstrating the bikes' awesomeness in a series of humorous, fast-paced vignettes. Throughout the short Tom chats with good friend (and sometimes collaborator), Diego Guzman, about how and exactly why he does what he does.

      • Nerdy Derby 2012


        from Roopa Vasudevan Added 20.8K 84 4

        Promotional video for the first-ever NERDY DERBY, to be held at World Maker Faire New York 2012. Presented by NYU's Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP). The Nerdy Derby is a no-rules miniature car building and racing competition inspired by the Cub Scouts' Pinewood Derby. With a larger, more undulating track and no restrictions on the size of the cars or materials participants can use, the Nerdy Derby rewards creativity, cleverness and ingenuity. The first-ever Nerdy Derby will take place at World Maker Faire New York on September 29th and 30th at the New York Hall of Science in Queens. Visitors can bring their own cars to race, choose from a selection of pre-built cars, or make their cars on site in our workshop. Questions? Contact Matt Richardson (matt@mattrichardson.com) or Tak Cheung (gettak@gmail.com). Video shot and edited by Roopa Vasudevan. Music: "Goof Rock" by Cornbeast. http://nerdyderby.com

        • The Last Gun


          from Made in Constantine Added 6,843 28 5

          The Last Gun is a mechano-robotic flute built out of a disabled shotgun and salvaged industrial components. The gun barrels have been transformed into a fully functional double-flute, which is played by compressed air. The mechanics are controlled via the use of open-source electronics using an Arduino microprocessor and the data visualization is accomplished through a Raspberry Pi board. The programmable robot graphically charts and then musically depicts the rise & fall of annual U.S. arms exports over 5 decades. The flute’s aural response is based upon a value judgment. It is programmed to play a somber melody for every rise in arms exports and an upbeat tune for every year the arms exports drop. This work is the next iteration of the Chifte Kavali ( http://vimeo.com/45427394 ).

            • Makers - A short-subject documentary about the Do-It-Yourself Counterculture


              from Brian Boyko Added 7,904 22 1

              Makers is a short subject documentary, filmed at Austin's Maker Faire, 2007, about the people behind the do-it-yourself counterculture and their inventions. You'll see a life-sized MouseTrap game, a live performance of the EepyBird Diet Coke & Mentos Experiments, and some amazing footage of inventions of all shapes and sizes - some of them going wrong in unpredictable and dangerous ways. Featuring Adam Savage Makers is the first project of Blogphilo New Media. All subjects are filmed with full permission. For information on how to obtain a DVD copy, a High Definition copy, or for information about distribution rights for broadcast or inclusion in a larger work, contact Brian Boyko, the producer and director, at brian.boyko@blogphilo.com If you would like to use a clip from Makers in your own projects, the movie is available to NON-COMMERCIAL projects under the Creative Commons BY-NC-SA license. Commercial entities looking at obtaining the rights to sample or incorporate the work should contact brian.boyko@blogphilo.com I would be interested in turning this project into a feature-length film if funded. I believe there's much more to be uncovered. Running Time: 26:40, Format: 1024x576 pixels (can be squeezed to PAL anamorphic) Filmed on HDV, Canon HV20, post-production in Apple Final Cut Pro.

                Projection mapping made for VIVO Media Arts Centre's booth at the Vancouver Mini Makers Faire 2014. Lights and shadows come together to create geometric shapes that morph into different ones, tricking the spectators eye and making them believe that the Hexastar shape shifts into more complex geometry.

                  • Waterfall Swing at World Maker Faire


                    from Waterfall Swing Added 6,033 18 0

                    See more at http://waterfallswing.com How the Waterfall Swing Works: Water recirculates through 273 independently controlled solenoid valves at the top of the structure to create a wall of water. This water starts from a collection pool on the ground and is pumped up to a large pipe that feeds the solenoids. Sensors mounted on the swingset gather information about the angle and speed of each swing. That information is sent to a computer that predicts the action of the rider. The computer then creates a hole in the wall of water, allowing the rider to swing through without getting wet. Designed by Andrew Ratcliff, Mike O'Toole, Andrew Witte and Ian Charnas.
