Join us Friday for the 10th annual Interactive Show! You won’t want to miss Hair Cube by Olivia Barr, Ranjit Bhatnagar and Colleen AF Venable:
Hair Cube is an ASMR drum kit for folks who are into the tickles you get from the sound of brushing hair. Its built to resemble a baby’s mobile that dangles clangy objects to rattle. Soothing, yet titillating too. The operator is lifted from the ground in a hammock and given combs and brushes and rubber applicators to perform with the Hair Cube. The hair is hot. Each ponytail equipped with a live microphone amplifies the sound of the hair tools or fingers or whatever you want to interactive the hair. Hair Cube is a prototype. Our goal is to sell the concept to Anthropolgie for their home goods/furnishings department.
The 10th Annual Interactive Show: SOLAR PUNK
NYC Resistor’s Interactive Show returns for its 10th iteration. Our annual party and fundraiser invites hackers from around the region to show off their cool interactive projects with free beats and beers provided. Tickets $15 in advance, $20 at the door.
This year’s theme is SOLAR PUNK. Just what is Solarpunk? It’s a genre, it’s a movement, it’s an imagining of a brighter, greener, future where both technology and society are more humane. Check out TVtropes and solarpunks.net for a more detailed dive into what Solarpunk could mean. More projects to be announced soon.
