Projects are starting to roll in for the Interactive Show! We’re going to set a deadline of May 1st for project submissions. If you have something you would like to show off, contact us.
It’s that time of year again. Spring is supposedly in the air and it’s time for another Interactive Show! This year’s theme is The Running Man. The 80’s dystopian future sci-fi takes place in 2017 and has so many great campy elements. Who can resist lo-fi graphics, spandex costumes, hexagonal decode systems, and a villain in LED studded armor? The projects practically create themselves! Elements from similar 80’s dystopia flicks like Max Headroom are also a great idea.
So save the date for May 13th and drop us a line to submit your projects! Projects don’t necessarily have to be on theme, just something you want to show off at a party.
The Interactive Show is Tomorrow! Last chance to get tickets! Here’s a preview of Adelle Lin’s augmented reality project “Liisa: Augmenting InnAr Beauty”.
There is something magical about the friendships between women, something that helps us see what we often overlook. This is what Liisa is all about, as it shows our oft-hidden selves. Personalized amulets serve as symbols of strength for any woman to wear. With the aid of augmented reality, I give them digital extensions, revealing to the world that every woman has her own set of wings.
This project makes Kyle’s [and Matt Mets’] “Blind Self Portrait” bot great again by combining it with Trammell’s whiteboard drawing “Polargraph”. The attendees will be able to pose for a portrait that will be drawn life-size on a whiteboard for selfies or flip-chart paper for them to take home.
Nick Brewer is bringing two projects to this year’s Interactive Show, a suitcase photo booth and a tiny arcade cabinet.
I tend to draw inspiration from taking new technology (usually Raspberry Pi’s) and installing it into old/unusual places. The photo booth is actually built out of a suitcase I found in a rural Michigan thrift store, and the portable arcade is designed to look like a nice jewelry box, but with a full game system inside.
More pictures and technical details after the break.
Tickets are on sale for this years Interactive Show and project submissions are starting to roll in. The Interactive Show is our annual party and fundraiser that invites hackers from around the region to show off their cool interactive projects with beats and beers provided.
There’s still room in the show for new submissions, so come show off your stuff. This year’s theme is #MakeInteractiveGreatAgain. It’s a great excuse to make that delusion-powered hot air cannon you’ve been wanting to build, or put a new twist on an old project and make it even more awesome!
Spring is here and it’s time for another Interactive Show! This year’s theme is #MakeInteractiveGreatAgain. The party is on May 14th and as usual we’ll provide the music and libations.
If you’ve ever wanted an excuse to build a dancing toupée bot, now is the perfect time. Or pull out an old project and do something new with it to make it great again. We’d love to show off whatever you’ve been working on, so drop us a line!
We’ll be closed tonight for Memorial Day. See you at Craft Night on Thursday. Have a great holiday!
Don’t forget our 6th annual Interactive Show is this Saturday!
