“The Venus of Google was ‘found’ via a Google search-by-image, googling a photograph taken of an object I had been handed over in a game of exquisite corpse. The Google search returned visually similar results, one of these being an image of a woman modelling a body-wrap garment. I then used a similar algorithmic image-comparison technique to drive the automated design of a 3D printable object. The ‘Hill-Climbing’ algorithm starts with a plain box shape and tries thousands of random transformations and comparisons between the shape and the image, eventually mutating towards a form resembling the found image in both shape and colour.”

Everyware’s arduino based installation in Korea says “your mind can levitate the balls”. Too bad I can’t read Korean, because this is some cool sensor work.
What does the data of a kickflip look like? This project by Design I/O uses the gyroscope of an iPod touch to capture the movements of state tricks. What rad data visualization. I can’t wait to see a serious skate video made with Skataviz.
I forecast augmented reality geared towards children’s learning in the next 3 years. This clever app seems to see the wave coming.
