3D printed lego blocks based on historic architecture – Tijmen Schep
Now that the patent on LEGO has expired anyone is allowed to create LEGO compatible blocks. This project wouldn’t have been possible without the support of Behrang Moussavi, the head of the archive, and Flora van Gaalen, the producer of the exhibition on plastic. Special thanks to Niek Geurts who went above and beyond al expectations in making the incredible LEGO house.

Superbly Synchronized Servos Swaying Softly | Hackaday
LEDs and blinky projects are great, and will likely never fade from our favor. But would you look at this sweeping beauty? This mesmerizing display is made from 36 micro servos with partial Popsicle sticks pasted on the arms. After seeing a huge display with 450 servos at an art museum, [Doug Domke] was inspired to make a scaled-down version.

Marbled Umbrella: 9 Steps (with Pictures)
Marbling is a method of aqueous surface design, which can produce patterns similar to smooth marble or other kinds of stone. The patterns are the result of color floated on water and then carefully transferred onto another surface such as paper or fabric.I have tried marbling on different materials like paper, shells, clothes, shoes, pots. But I was not satisfied. I wanted to try something new. Something different. Something that would beautifully showcase the marbled designs. And then I had the 'Eureca' moment. Marbling on umbrellas.

Anouk Wipprecht FashionTech: rethinking fashion in the age of digitalisation
What does fashion lack? "Microcontrollers" according to Dutch based Hi-Tech Fashion Designer and Innovator Anouk Wipprecht. As she is working in the emerging field of "FashionTech"; a rare combination of fashion design combined with engineering, science and interaction/user experience design. Producing an impressive body of tech-enhanced designs bringing together fashion and technology in an unusual way: she creates technological couture; with systems around the body that tend towards artificial intelligence; projected as 'host' systems on the human body, her designs move, breath, and react to the environment around them.

Strangely ahead of her time; Anouk combines the latest in science and technology to make fashion an experience that transcends mere appearances. Sensors embedded in the design monitor the space around the wearer, and body-sensors check in on stress levels as comfort or anxiety.

Book review: Craftivism @ HackSpace magazine
We all make things for different reasons. Some people make because they want things that they can’t otherwise get, some people make because they enjoy the act of making, and some people make because it gives them a place to express their frustration with politics, consumerism, oppression, or some other force. In Craftivism: The Art of Craft and Activism, Betsy Greer explores people who fall into that latter category. Betsy explains that craft is actually a natural outlet for these frustrations

Artistic Attempt To Send Digital Signals Via Fungus | Hackaday
Liquids are applied to change the pH of the system, which can be picked up at the other end of the soil bed. The pH levels are read as digital signals, with pH levels either side of neutral reading as high and low bits. pH sensors can be expensive, so [Julian] chose the cheapest available, and tapped into their LCD display lines to read their output into an microcontroller. The system displays data using commonly available OLED displays, and hobby servo motors are used to control the dispensing of liquid.

Due to time constraints, [Julian] was unable to get the system fully functional. Sending data as pH levels through fungus proved unreliable and slow, but we suspect with further development, the system could be improved.

LBRY : secure, open, and community-run digital marketplace.
LBRY is the first digital marketplace to be controlled by the market's participants rather than a corporation or other 3rd-party. It is the most open, fair, and efficient marketplace for digital goods ever created, with an incentive design encouraging it to become the most complete.

At the highest level, LBRY does something extraordinarily simple. LBRY creates an association between a unique name and a piece of digital content, such as a movie, book, or game. This is similar to the domain name system that you are most likely using to access this very post.

craft + activism = craftivism
Craftivism is the practice of engaged creativity, especially regarding political or social causes. By using their creative energy to help make the world a better place, craftivists help bring about positive change via personalized activism. Craftivism allows practitioners to customize their particular skills to address particular causes.

By advocating the use of creativity for the improvement of the world, craftivists worldwide taught knitting lessons, sewed scarves for battered women’s shelters, and knitted hats for chemotherapy patients. In a world that was growing increasingly large and unfamiliar, craftivism fought to bring back the personal into our daily lives to replace some of the mass produced. In promoting the idea that people can use their own creativity to improve the world, craftivism allows those who wish to voice their opinions and support their causes the chance to do just that…but without chanting or banner waving and at their own pace.

Lithophanes - How to 3D print your photographs
you can actually 3D print photographs. Sort of.

They’re called lithophanes, a pretty old technique that’s been around since the early 1800s. Of course, they didn’t have 3D printers back then, they made them out of porcelain. These days, though, we do, which makes them much easier to create. So, I finally got around to making some.

My wife and saw Azulejo tiles when we did a trip to Portugal. The tiles were great and we are very interested in integrating some into some house projects, but there are two issues when attempting to source materials, finding design(s) that we both liked and/or had to purchase in quantities well beyond what we needed. So to remedy this, I found some test designs online and began tinkering to see what I could build with my Prusa i3 Mk3.

We the Builders: Let's build big sculptures from small parts!
You 3D print, document, and ship. We assemble. Together we build crowdsourced sculptures! We the Builders began at the ArtBytes Hackathon at the Walters Art Museum in Baltimore in 2014. Our team, with the help of Direct Dimensions, 3D scanned a bust of George Washington and sliced the digital image into hundreds of sections. We developed a nifty platform where anyone with a 3D printer can claim a part to print on their own, then log and ship us their piece.

Since then, We the Builders has created several large community-built sculptures in the likeness of some of our nation's historical icons: George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, Edgar Allen Poe (sculpted by Ryan Kittleson), and Rosie the Riveter (sculpted by Jen Schachter). In 2018 we built a giant monument of Rosie printed by over 700 people from around the world. With help from Adam Savage (, Mythbusters) and dozens of volunteers from Nation of Makers, we assembled all 2,625 parts into a staggering 6-foot tall sculpture.

The name is a portmanteau of brick and pixel, indicating that each individual brick can be independently addressed as a visual element. A Brixel installation consists of a series of columns, stacked with Brixel elements. Each individual brick on the column contains a stepper motor which can set the rotational position of the brick. The outer appearance of the individual bricks is highly customizable, as the motor hardware is integrated into the column itself.

Linobyte: computer art history project
Added to that, by neglecting history, we forget the alternatives of the technologies that we use today - forgotten alternatives that maybe once were the status quo. Understanding of those alternatives would give us a broader view of the pros and cons of what we have today, how they superseded their ancestors and what are their pitfalls - important knowledge for those who design possible futures.

Its with these preocupations in mind that Linobyte came into existence. It conciliates the explanation of how bits, bytes and chars work, with a hands on experience of creating Core Rope ROMs: read-only memories that were written by weaving an enameled copper wire through ferrite cores.

Is Burning Man an Idealized Silicon Valley? - The New Stack
Magister summarizes Engle’s theory of a deeper similarity: “Both Burning Man and the internet were born out of the same social forces and cultural movements, and thus have been moving in parallel — one emphasizing pure information, the other grounding us firmly in the immediate physical moment, but both still riding the crest of the same wave.”

“Which is why he thinks Burning Man can be described as an open-source, cloud-based, culture,” he said.

BLOOMS 2: Strobe Animated Sculptures Invented by John Edmark on Vimeo
Blooms are 3-D printed sculptures designed to animate when spun under a strobe light. Unlike a 3D zoetrope, which animates a sequence of small changes to objects, a bloom animates as a single self-contained sculpture. The bloom’s animation effect is achieved by progressive rotations of the golden ratio, phi (ϕ), the same ratio that nature employs to generate the spiral patterns we see in pinecones and sunflowers. The rotational speed and strobe rate of the bloom are synchronized so that one flash occurs every time the bloom turns 137.5º (the angular version of phi).* Each bloom’s particular form and behavior is determined by a unique parametric seed I call a phi-nome (/fī nōm/). -John Edmark

Soda Can Lamp Pinpoints Your Interests | Hackaday
[AHNT] knows all about this phenomenon, because he thought of a way to use soda cans as canvases for customizable pixel art lamp shades.[AHNT] designed a printable sleeve that fits perfectly over 250mL cans. It provides a sturdy grid for poking tiny holes with a medical needle, and can be reused indefinitely with any pattern imaginable. He created two different printable bases to illuminate the lamp: one is sized to hold a votive candle, and the other is made for an LED strip circuit with a rocker switch and 12 VDC barrel jack. We suppose it wouldn’t take much to use an RGB LED instead—a Trinket or a Gemma would surely fit in the base.

Color Spaces: The Model at the End of the Rainbow | Hackaday
To make the same colors with light instead of paint I had to use red, green, and blue, not yellow. It was until much later when trying harness banks of RGB LEDs that this knowledge became useful. I was struggling to make my rogue diodes look quite the way I wanted when I stumbled into the realization that maybe there was another approach. What did the numbers representing R G and B actually mean? Why those parameters? Could there be others? [Elliot Williams] has written about the importance of gamma correction and adjustment for human perception of color, but we can ask a more fundamental question. Why do we represent color this way at all?

The best of SXSW’s fantastic VR festival @ Ars Technica
I went eyes-on with nearly two dozen VR experiences at SXSW 2018, and I'll be honest, some of them were rough. Some filmmakers still think that a 360-degree video that forces viewers to crane their neck and hunt around for content is a good idea (geez, please stop making those). Others packed far too much visual noise or too many unnecessary interactions into a 3D world that never answered the important question of why its content and message was better in VR than on a flat screen.

But the five experiences I list below all left me with both shivers and with hope for VR as an important storytelling medium for years to come.

We are a two man outfit functioning shoulder to shoulder and our work exists as the by-product of the ongoing dialogue between the two of us. This discussion serves as a medium of building, as well as providing a space of concession, dissidence, and justification where we attempt to construct a shared vision. Our work simultaneously straddles several disciplines, making it difficult for us to properly fit into a particular category. It is for this reason we created MachineHistories. We privilege no particular creative practice, which allows us to explore the interests of our choosing without discrimination. The thread that links everything together is our belief in process and production, regardless of the medium or venue.

Detoured: Inside MachineHistories @ Hackaday
When designers and architects need a fancy centerpiece, a design element, or even some wall sconces, they don’t head over to the machine shop by themselves. They get someone else, who owns some fancy machines, knows how to use those fancy machines, and can create anything out of wood, foam, or metal to do the fabrication for them. Think of these companies as artisan contractors, capable of turning whatever an architect thinks of into a real, tangible object.

One of these such companies is MachineHistories, a joint venture between [Steven Joyner] and [Jason Pilarsky], who work in the medium of computer code and CNC programming. A

Chromatic Sound to Light Conversion System. It's really that simple. Unlike so many of the sound responsive systems out there, ColorChord looks at the chromatic properties of the sound. It looks for notes, not ranges. If it hears an "E" it doesn't care what octave it's in, it's an E. This provides a good deal more interesting patterns between instruments and music than would be available otherwise.

How to shape audio with visual input and audience participation. I am going to write about: (How I got to know) Milan Adamčiak and his inspiring/playful work; Grafofon, a 6 meters long instrument, inspired by analogue experiments, but driven by computer vision; Technical details of the project, esp. in its last iteration — the most technically complex, but also the most successful; What I learned along the way and what I plan for the future

Ladies Fancywork Society (Denver)
The Ladies Fancywork Society has been terrorizing your neighborhood with their garish yarn crimes since 2007. What began as a group of crochet-loving friends just chillin' out maxin' relaxin' all cool and shooting some b-ball outside of the school has transformed into a diabolic art hydra capable of putting together large-scale projects, international art shows, and installations.

SprayPrinter Paints Your Wall, One Pixel At A Time @ Hackaday
SprayPrinter is a neat idea. You download a cellphone app, point the camera at a wall, and sweep the wall with a spray can fitted with a (Bluetooth? WiFi?) remote-controlled valve. The phone knows where the nozzle is, and sprays a dot whenever it needs to “paint” the picture of your choosing on the wall.

Daffodil Creative : explorations and adventures in art
Who am I? My name is Mira and I'm a simply someone who is learning to reconnect with her creative side. It took me a long time, and a lot of encouragement, to get past the "I'm not really an artist" thinking. I'm learning that creativity comes in many different forms. Just because mine isn't like some else's doesn't mean that it's not creative. It is simply how I express myself.

The Makerspace Movement @ The Meaning of Meraki
Makerspace is not about a “space” and it is not about “stuff”: it is about a “making mindset”. A focus on ‘making” pushes past the traditional structure of student as consumer of information. It is a culture focused on student as creator. It is about ideas. It is about the joy and exhilaration of putting something new into the world and the rich learning that goes with the experience of doing so.
