Spanish artist and Fine Arts professor Rubén Tortosa partnered with Computer Science professor Miguel Sánchez, both from Universitat Politècnica de València, to create an interactive arts installation that captures visitors’ silhouettes using a Kinect depth-camera and print them on the wall using an Arduino and a couple of stepper motors. Image processing uses OpenCV library and [...] . . . → Lire la suite: DIY silhouette sketcher
Sometimes, it is amazing to see how technology is used to make the world a better place to live for the less fortunate. One such problem has been thought out and tackled by Anirudh Sharma aka touchaddict on IRC. His invention is called ‘Le-chal’ which translates to ‘Take me there’ in Hindi. Sharma conceptualized and [...] . . . → Lire la suite: Directional shoes for the blind
Stahl Stenslie, Norwegian artist, PhD, and professor at the Oslo School of Architecture, has been working with the guys at 1scale1 in making a wearable device for about a year. Prototype’s last version uses an Arduino ADK together with an Android phone. It is a location based sculpture + soundscape. When reaching a certain place, [...] . . . → Lire la suite: Showing electronics in public? Be careful!
A beautiful project by [Leigh Davis]. It is a brilliant proof of how Arduino fits into virtually any sphere of thought and is the shortest path for a creator realizing his idea in reality. He writes: I began the first few days by developing a stand alone application build in MaxMSP that understands the notes [...] . . . → Lire la suite: When music meets Arduino
[Paul Ferragout] realized a strange printer, with an incorporated program to print any image using a time-based algorithm. According to the grey value of a pixel on an image, the felt pen remains in contact with the blotting paper for relative periods of time. The Arduino-controlled Time Print Machine uses an algorithm to “paint” images — [...] . . . → Lire la suite: Arduino-Controlled Robot Brings Pointillism Back!
Hypnotic installation from David Bowen representing *real* waves. [...] Tele-Present Water installation draws information from the intensity and movement of the water in a remote location. Wave data is collected in real-time from National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) data buoy station 46075 Shumagin Islands Alaska. The wave intensity and frequency is scaled and transferred [...] . . . → Lire la suite: “Tele-Present Water” Waves From Faraway
