Make masterpieces with a homemade CNC painting machine

Longtime artist Jeff Leonard has built a pair of Arduino-driven CNC painting machines with the motivation to grow his toolbox and expand the kinds of marks he could make simply by hand. By pairing the formal elements of painting with modern-day computing, the Brooklyn-based Maker now has the ability to create things that otherwise would’ve never been possible. Machine #1 consists of a 5’ x 7’ table and […]

How close are we to doomsday? A clock is calculating it in real time

  Tom Schofield created an installation artwork which visualises the ‘Doomsday Clock’, a symbolic clock maintained by an academic journal, ‘The Bulletin of Atomic Scientists’ which: conveys how close humanity is to catastrophic destruction–the figurative midnight–and monitors the means humankind could use to obliterate itself. First and foremost, these include nuclear weapons, but they also […]

Workshop on "Physical and Wearable Computing": projects and outcomes

Last July 23-27 2012, the workshop on “Physical and Wearable Computing”, organized by SUPSI within the summer school in “Digital Fabrication and Interaction Design”, has took place involving about 20 participants. This workshop has proved to be a very good approach to introduce future makers to the concepts of digital fabrication, prototyping and design of interactive objects. On the workshop’s homepage, […]

An Arduino-enhanced espresso machine: the "Naked Espresso"

Reborn is an australian digital creative agency whose mission is to design smart and innovative ideas. Among their works, a very nice one regards a hack consisting in the re-engineering of a sofisticated espresso machine, to show its peculiar features in the process of coffee making. By means of an Arduino board, the team can collect real-time information such […]
