Be a part of history on January 12 as Scott Kildall’s Time Capsule is buried in NYSCI’s Rocket Park as part of Get Involved (Part 2), a focus on ReGeneration artists and projects that are on exhibit at NYSCI through January 13.
Scott’s project Imagine 2049 is a community-generated time capsule filled with ideas for a better, more sustainable society. 
Other workshops during the day include Biomodd’s Recycled Energy: make a USB solar charger that charges everyday electronic devices; and Shih Chieh Huang’s Inflatables: build a giant inflatable structure using found and recycled materials.

ReGeneration: Biomodd prototype now at NYSCI

Screen shot of Biomodd virtual world

NYSCI is revving up for the next exhibit ReGeneration, with artist Angelo Vermeulen and team building the first part of the window garden for his Biomodd project, right now in NYSCI’s Central Pavilion. 

This week, the virtual world that will run on the Biomodd computer network is being developed (above image), and students at Parsons are creating concepts and prototypes for “caretaking robots” as part of the Biomodd Collaboration Studio.

If you want to learn more about Angelo’s project and his work, and you happen to be in the Los Angeles area, he is giving a lecture and demonstration at UCLA tomorrow.

In the meantime, mark your calendars for the long awaited opening of ReGeneration on October 27, 2012, at NYSCI.

LOOK WHAT’S COMING TO WORLD MAKER FAIRE - Artist Erin Lewis presents some of her data-driven fashion pieces, including the Earthquake Skirt. Made of housing debris that rumbles and shakes with real-time seismological data from around the globe, the skirt’s vibrations are correlated to the intensity of the quakes.

LOOK WHAT’S COMING TO WORLD MAKER FAIRE - Color Wheelz is an art making and visual narrative experience to promote public engagement on the streets of NYC. The Color Wheelz van travels the five boroughs (and beyond) collecting artworks and stories along the way. At each destination, visitors add their personal touches to the van, using neon wire, cling paper, velcro shapes, magnets and fabric in a playful exploration of how color relates to community. Visitors of all ages are welcome and encouraged to create things they never thought they would or never thought they could.

Some small scale reactable inspired tests of managing and sharing resources between two worlds.
Using shape detection to detect wooden pieces and assign them as resources. Still early tests.

We are using a Sony IR Camera looking down on the screen from above. The IR filter means that you don’t see the image on the screen, just the backlight of the screen with the shapes silhouetted.
