In 2009 rAndom International was commissioned by the Philips Lumiblade team to create an interactive light installation. You Fade To Light captures the unique qualities inherent to their revolutionary new OLEDs.
Lumiblade OLEDs are large area diffuse light sources made from extremely thin glass and feature a perfect mirror finish. OLEDs are the closest to the temperature of natural light.
“You Fade To Light” by rAndom International allows the audience to engage with the light itself intuitively and in a physical way. With custom software developed by designer Chris O’Shea, it has been built in London with several hundred unique OLEDs from the world’s first-ever production line for OLED lighting at Philips in Aachen, Germany. via rAndom International
Today’s Wolfram|Alpha is the first step in an ambitious, long-term project to make all systematic knowledge immediately computable by anyone. Enter your question or calculation, and Wolfram|Alpha uses its built-in algorithms and a growing collection of data to compute the answer. Based on a new kind of knowledge-based computing…..
The research project Touch, which investigates Near Field Communication (NFC), a technology that enables connections between mobile phones and physical things, has introduced their latest NFC work in this video. It explores nearness in interactive technologies.
Amit Pitaruhas developed a 3d drawing tool that uses a combination of a track ball mouse and tablet screen as an input device. The result is an interface that will allow for a more freehand approach to the construction of three dimensional lines. While it is still very much in the prototype phase, we are excited to see some attempt to challenge the typical mouse/left hand hot key approach. More images and a description form the creator below.
core.form-ula is the academic wing of form-ula. Our goal is to provide a platform, be it physical or virtual where architects, artists, designers, engineers, scientists, and writers can come together in collaborative space.
A Brief introduction to some of the people doing what we find to be progressive work in the field of Architecture, Art, Design and Science.
