  • Robotic Drum Prosthesis Project

    Gear  |  Tech
    Jason Barnes had wanted to be a professional drummer since he was a teenager. But when he lost his arm in a freak accident he thought his dream was over. Gil Weinberg designed a prosthetic for Barnes that lets him continue to play the drums as well as he could with two arms—and maybe even better than before. Because in addition to a small robot arm that lets Barnes accurately control a drumstick using the muscles in his upper arm, the prosthetic includes a second drumstick that plays along autonomously. It uses a microphone and accelerometer to detect Barnes' rhythm, and then automatically starts drumming along with a complementary rhythm of its own.
    The video is Jason Barnes demonstrating his new robotic drumming prosthesis, developed by GTCMT's Robotic Musicianship Group.

    Gender Swap - Experiment with The Machine to Be Another

    Gear  |  Tech
    Gender Swap is an experiment that users can feel themselves like if they were in a different body. Amazing!
    "In order to create the brain ilusion we use the immersive Head Mounted Display Oculus Rift, and first-person cameras. To create this perception, both users have to synchronize their movements. If one does not correspond to the movement of the other, the embodiment experience does not work. It means that both users have to constantly agree on every movement they make. Through out this experiment, we aim to investigate issues like Gender Identity, Queer Theory, feminist technoscience, Intimacy and Mutual Respect. "

    2 Men Are Living in This Spinning House for 10 Days

    2 Men Are Living in This Spinning House for 10
    Gear  |  Projects


    Two men are spending 10 days living in a home with a difference: it’s a 25-foot wooden wheel. It is an art installation and performance piece by Ward Shelley and Alex Schweder. The two collaborate in a medium that they call "performance architecture."
    "This new work, In Orbit, continues in this vein with the wheel-shaped house. All its furniture and accommodations are fixed along its circumference. To bring the users the things they require during the day, they must walk in tandem to rotate the giant wheel. The artists will live in the structure 24/7 from February 28 through March 9, 2014. From that date until April 5, 2014, the end of the exhibition, the structure will remain on view in the exhibition space as an installation"

    "These reliquaries are created by chemically “clearing and staining” terminally deformed frogs found in nature. This process obscures direct representation- as I do not want to exhibit large images of “monsters”, which would be frightening and be exploitative to the organisms. This process is followed by high-resolution scanner photography of each specimen to create individual portraits."

    Gear  |  DIY
    Jen made this amazing AT-AT rocking-horse, documenting the build online. It will be auctioned for charity at Megacon by the Florida chapter of the 501st Legion.
    "As I said, little Isaiah (son of my Wrecky minion Julianne - and resident of the Ninja Nursery, if you remember that!) was afraid of rocking on the AT-AT, even though he loved it and kept standing next to it and patting it. So to help him feel brave, I got him a Vader mask and cape. And, hey, never underestimate the power... of a Vader mask and cape:
    Isaiah is rocked all the way forward here, so as you can see the bumpers really prevent it from going very far. (He didn't want to rock backward at all. Heheh.)
    If you missed it, you can see some construction shots of the AT-AT here. Oh, and I still don't have a pattern for you guys, but I promise it's on the to-do list!"

    The incident at Lake Moondarra, near Mount Isa, was captured on camera by local residents on Sunday. The 10-ft snake, thought to be a python, coiled itself around the crocodile and the two struggled in the water. Corlis told the BBC, "It was amazing! We saw the snake fighting with the crocodile - it would roll the crocodile around to get a better grip, and coil its body around the crocodile's legs to hold it tight. The fight began in the water - the crocodile was trying to hold its head out of the water at one time, and the snake was constricting it. After the crocodile had died, the snake uncoiled itself, came around to the front, and started to eat the crocodile, face-first." It was unbelievable!
