Sonar +D // Creativity, Technology & Music

IMGP0621

The POP up Fab Lab of Fab Lab Barcelona in collaboration with MADE maker space participated this year as technology providers at Music Hack Day of Sonar, organised by UPF . The Pop up lab has been supporting MHD hackers to integrate electronics, make their physical prototypes, create soft circuits and textiles, solder their circuits and create their invention.

This year’s special track was on wearables and music performance. Many companies such as Bare Conductive, Orphe smart shoes, R-iot sensor, Roli piano and many many more where providing their products for creative hacks and applications. The pop up lab collaborated with more than 15 teams to support them in their physical prototypes and in going one step further into the integration of wearables with the body.

The 24 hour Hackathon had inspiring results such as a small soft piano using conductive thread and bare conductive board, a glove that plays notes in the different fingers and communicates with the NFC tag cashless band of sonar bracelet, a 3d printed part with a blowing sensor for people with disabilities that allows you to compose by using the movement of your head and lots more.
Here are some few of the hacks that we remember!

“…there are currently about 10 makerspaces in Shenzhen and at least 10 school-based makerspaces in the works. “Shenzhen is a city-sized TechShop. CNC mills and laser cutters are so easy to find,” says Lau. The city has even declared June 18–22 as Maker Week, with a host of Maker-friendly events taking place in various locations, as well as competitions where teams have 48 hours to prototype new products” (Source: Makerzine)

Fab Academy Barcelona rocks (session1)

Yesterday was a happy day, and a sad day too. Fab Academy 2015 is over (there is a second round of presentation on June 24h so stay tuned!) and many of our students are flying back to their countries; leaving behind some AWESOME projects. Artists, designers, engineers, philosophers, architects… the range of backgrounds and skills that Fab Academy has nurtured during this Fab Academy 2015 has been incredible.

Here’s a taste of what has been produced in the past month! Don’t our student rock digital fabrication?

Sisyphus interactive video installation

sisyphus2

Sisyphus is an interactive video mapping installation about the perpetual effort to achievement. Sisyphus gives form to the human condition through an interactive game where the user can animate the scene as long as he can perceive and dominate time. In Greek mythology Sisyphus (Sisyphos) was a king of Ephyra (now known as Corinth). He was punished for chronic deceitfulness by being compelled to roll an immense boulder up a hill, only to watch it roll back down, and to repeat this action forever. The interaction interface consists of a laser cut mechanical gear system. The gear’s movement controls Sisyphus climbing a 3d printed mountain made out of 44 unique pieces that interlock one with the other like a puzzle. The gear’s movement is tracked using a sensor that sends the data via wifi to the Sisyphus Application made in Unity 3D.

In Greek mythology Sisyphus (Sisyphos) was a king of Ephyra (now known as Corinth). He was punished for chronic deceitfulness by being compelled to roll an immense boulder up a hill, only to watch it roll back down, and to repeat this action forever. According to the solar theory, King Sisyphus is the disk of the sun that rises every day in the east and then sinks into the west. Other scholars regard him as a personification of waves rising and falling, or of the treacherous sea.

The installation

The interaction interface consists of a laser cut mechanical gear system, which the audience interacts with by rotating them.The gear’s movement controls Sisyphus going up a 3d printed mountain made out of 44 unique pieces that interlock one with the other like a puzzle. The gear’s movement is tracked using accelerometer data received by the Sisyphus Stone Application in openFrameworks and Unity 3D.

Some of the prints were printed with a YARR, a big 3d printer made at Lisbon by our local tutor of Fab Academy, Ferdinand Meyer with Leds & Chips
