Deep Screen: Muti Randolph

Not a who lot of info regarding technical details but…. Looks like a programmable 3-dimensional grid of LEDs……Creates interesting and surprisingly complex¬† visuals. http://www.thecreatorsproject.com/videos/muti-randolph–2 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MsEeLDLJbeo

Copenhagen Wheel Project: SENSEable City

SO… you know all that potential energy created when cycling and braking your way through the city? WELL….in JUNE 2011 you will be able to capture that energy and use it to help you up that steep hill…. MIT’s SENSEable City Lab is working to develop a pretty low-tech battery/motor that can be easily mounted … Continue reading

Flyfire: SENSEable City

imagine this…. small flying objects…with embedded light-sources….flying in programmable groups…. well MIT’s SENSEable city lab is working to develop this very concept. it’s still in the development stage but if completed would be a great example of a low-tech mechanism operated by high-tech means… http://senseable.mit.edu/flyfire/#

Again, a world that exists beyond my recognition…the world of velomobiles (half bicycle / half car) Some of these are pretty interesting (visually and mechanically). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Velomobile http://www.lowtechmagazine.com/2010/09/the-velomobile-high-tech-bike-or-low-tech-car.html

Low Tech Mechanics

Really like this because of the low tech mechanics…. From cool Hunting: “A hinge without a revolution joint, the QuaDror is extremely strong and energy efficient, but the real beauty about QuaDror is its flexibility. The robust nature of the design allows it to hold up to 86 QuaDrors on top of each other. When … Continue reading
