Young, old, furry, slippery

Starting tomorrow, I’ll be spending two days participating in Fing‘s Université de printemps (Spring University) entitled Plus longue la vie (A Longer Life). As you can tell by the subject matter, it’s about aging and the role of new technologies… Continue Reading →

Stop making sense

I’m in the middle of the second of two busy weeks. Last week France Cadet organized an excellent list of speakers for De l’objet de laboratoire au sujet social, and this week we’re working with Christian Graff whom she invited… Continue Reading →

Discrete computations in continuous planes

Via Slashdot who got it from tshb, here’s a fascinating paper by Daniel E. Holcomb, Wayne P. Burleson, and Kevin Fu (University of Massachusetts) on accessing the physical properties of digital circuits for both the generation of random numbers and… Continue Reading →

Quantum Randomizer

One of the interesting effects of physicalization would naturally be the further entanglement of algorithmic machines and cosmic phenomena, whether that be relative, quantic, membranic, or whatever else might come down the theoretical pike. Of course computers are already heavily… Continue Reading →

Snowy Tree Cricket

Although this blog is mostly dedicated to projects I’m directly or indirectly involved in, I’ve decided to open a new category — physicalization —, to discuss more often than usual news related to this (ancient) emerging phenomenon. This follows on the heels… Continue Reading →

String programming

I just saw this on New Scientist: programming robots with strings. No, I’m not talking about character-based programming, nor am I talking about storing information in parallel dimensions as in M-Theory. I mean quite simply that you can use string… Continue Reading →

Beneath the Surface…

Ok people, you can stop sending me emails about Microsoft Surface. I’ve seen it already. And as I mentioned in this interview and this one the experimentation phase of interactive surfaces is over. Everyone knows that Microsoft is the pretty… Continue Reading →

echolocation

We just finished another day of plot, probably a Plot-Wednesday, or a Plot-Thursday, but I’m not keeping score. As usual, there were some pretty crazy ideas thrown around, and Fabrice has continued developing (and explaining to us) his system for… Continue Reading →
