a VOXELCRAWLER precursor is born!

This is the first, stumbling steps toward a completely new way of making art. Even toward a new breed of artists? So far nothing new in the hexapod, but before this project is over, we will have developed and created a mobile, autonomatic fabricating Voxelcrawler. Based on sensor input from the surroundings, it will make art installation on the go! A lot of decisions to be made, a lot of experiments to be done, but we will get there. ” To explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no man has gone before.”

Our hexapod is alive! Or as we call it: The Pinkpod

Building the hexapod. Easy peasy!


Makerbot goes giga?

Our MakerBot is ready, and we have already started to plan next step. We are now applying for some research funding, for building a “3D printer” which will print in different materials, and in large scale. Or more precise: to build a robot that generates solid objects in large scale. The exact material and building method are not yet decided. We need to work some more on the concept, and then make some decisions. It can be mobile, it can be run by varying parameters like sound, temperature, gesture and so on. It can “print” clusters of matter, it can “print” tubes or cubes! Comments and suggestions are welcome:)
