Inspiration AND Wishlist from Teenage Engineering

Everything they make looks so sleek and cool…. Now to find a way to incorporate this kit into a costume! Who is going to pay me to do it? That is the ‘few hundred pound’ question!!!

 

 

 

Please go here and feel free to purchase the Oplab for me to work with, you won’t be disappointed.

Inspiration comes from Studio Roosegaarde – LOTUS

 

They’ve only gone and done it again… Beautiful cool simple AND it interacts with you! I love what Studio Roosegaarde do, and this is no exception! Nice!

“LOTUS 7.0 is a living wall composed of smart foils that fold open in response to human behavior. Walking by LOTUS, hundreds of aluminum foils unfold themselves in an organic way; generating transparent voids between private and public.
Via LOTUS, physical walls are made immaterial, giving way to a poetic morphing of space and people.
Specifications:
2010-2011. Curved wall of 4 x 2 meters with hundreds of smart foils, lamps, sensors, software and other media.
Client:
Self-commissioned by Studio Roosegaarde.
LOTUS DOME is a living dome made out of hundreds of smart flowers which fold open in response to human behavior. Deep inside the 17th-century Sainte Marie Madeleine Church in Lille LOTUS DOME creates an interactive play of light and shadow.
As a futuristic vision on the Renaissance LOTUS DOME merges elements of architecture and nature into an interactive environment.
Client:
Commissioned by the City of Lille for Lille3000 FANTASTIC exhibition curated by Caroline David.”

Printed movable surfaces… That’s cool!

It’s been a while… sorry about that, life has been spent in hotels, on friends sofas and living out of a suitcase, but I’m back and I’m going to show you what I’ve seen and what I’m doing…

These are some of the cool things that I saw at the 3D Print Show in London Last month (last month already!!! ARRGHHHHH).. The movable surfaces were of GREAT interest! (links to follow!)
