Looking Outwards — DANIELLE.KOGAN @ 4:54 am

Behind Behind Behind Behind.

 

 

First up! Not really Arduino, but still pretty damn cool. This group has created videogames which take in user input as per usual. But instead of controlling a “character” on the screen, players control microorganisms. I really like the layers that can be taken away from this project. Is it ethical? What if this was done on a larger scale? Could it be done on a larger scale? Is this ethical? If so, how is it better or worse than just using microorganisms? ARE WE RUINING GOD’S PLAN? Just kidding, but in all seriousness this is pretty great. It gives the everyman a way to play around with biotechnology, and promote interest. Which I think is pretty swell.

 

 

 

Shamwow! You too can be a magic man. The arduino is used to measure a user’s brain activity/level of concentration. The more you concentrate, the faster the car moves. Apparently not many people can do it though. Is it technology, or are they truly magic men? Probably the first one. The simplicity of the set up, versus the difficulty of the code bites at me a little, because gak, the code. But the potential shown here is simply fantastic. Very inspiring for making my own pieces.

Man, it’s just a god damn Furby, right? These guys actually accomplish a ton of stuff (movement, sensory input) based on very simple mechanics. For example, only one DC motor controls the ears and beak movements. Pretty neat. I really like how this gives an example of how arduino technology can be used to make a toy (something like the Furby), or hack a pre existing toy (again, the Furby, check out the second link). Both a real world, and a more artistic(?) use for the Arduino.
