“3982″

 A mix of futuristic clothing, robotics and technology

“3982″ was born from IBCO and Ayoub Qanir with the goal of creating a piece of clothing with an aesthetic feature inspired by the idea of a future encompassing and crisscrossing the arts, science and technology; favoring reflection on the system and its context.
The video developed by Codea Studio with the collaboration of IAAC|Fab Lab Barcelona and Bloom has incorporated the techniques used in the creation of clothing, such as laser cut or the 3d dress patterns, in its visual content. The impulse and the technique used in this visual content consists of an iron arm attached to the camera which travels around “3982″
From material and abstraction to concreteness and futurism, a revelation with glimpses of a possible crossing between technology and humanity.

UNFOLDING SENSES pavillion and TOMO open source technology

The IaaC installation, developed in the occasion of the Festival des Architectures Vives 2014 in Montpellier and the EASTN european project, proposes to create a space within space, a pavilion in a courtyard, to enhance the intimacy and privacy suggested by the existing courtyard, opened to the public exclusively for the festival itself. The pavilion is a textile construction, generated through the use of the least possible structural elements, floating in equilibrium like a sheet strewn in the wind. The structure is lightweight and collapsable, designed and built by students in the framework of the Experimental Structures academic course in the Masters in Advanced Architecture course. When installed in the courtyard, the pavilion develops its interactive potential through a sensoral experience. Entering this new living space in the courtyard and touching the fabric walls, the courtyard takes life under the form of a soundscape from the outside world. The textile structure reacts to the users incorporating the senses of sight, touch and hearing, finally evoking a diverse reality.

THE STRUCTURE

small

The construction is made out of wooden beams and fabric. The fabric is light and removable, it touches the floor on four points. The 72m2 textile membrane is a special fabric for facades (Stamisol FT Serge Ferrari. The 35 wooden beams provide stiffness only at points where the structure requires support compression.

The initial pavilion developed in the Experimental Structures seminar has been hacked with conductive paint and four TOMO boards, and implemented with balloon speakers to create an intimate and vivid space, finally unfolding senses.

THE VISITOR EXPERIENCE

A space inside a space. Intimacy. Architecture considered as something that is alive and interactive, closer to a person’s everyday life. You feel the materiality as you move closer, and understand the structure, the architecture, while touching the soft textile, that in turn reacts with sound. A sensorial experience implemented through touch and sound, and generating a new, and more personal, soundscape.

THE TECHNOLOGY

TOMO can sense your touch on many different materials and create sounds to tell people things.The technology implemented into the structure itself is based on a custom board called TOMO developed in the Fab Lab BarcelonaTOMO is a touch Synthesizer board based on Arduino. It has touch and sound processors, integrating two Arduino processors, one running a touch detection algorithm based on the Touché principle (developed by Disney Research 2012) and the other dedicated to sound generation. The system is completely standalone and can be deployed on any structure, running on batteries for more than a week.

TOMO

TO means touch. Tomo uses Swept Frequency Capacitive Sensing (SFCS) a concept explored by Disney Research Labs on this paper. The Arduino implementation is based on the documentation by ILLUTRON and developed byCleniem. The internal ongoing research on SFCS can be found at fablabbcn/TouchE.

MO means Mozzi an amazing library for sound synthesis library for Arduino developed by Tim Barrass. This means you can create sounds with it from simple tones to delays and echos. We will soon add *.WAV palying functionality too.

This project was developed as part of the ongoing research on Tangibility, for the EASTN (The European Art-Science-Technology Network) at Fab Lab Barcelona. The first real setup was done for the FAV Festival in Monpellier in June 2014.

b’Ars// Fab Lab en la Feria de Arte y VFX

El FabLab BCN ha participado en b’Ars, la Feria Internacional dedicada a los efectos especiales y visuales que se celebró del 5 al 8 de Junio y tuvo lugar en el Centro de Arte Santa Mónica.

De la mano de Santi Fuentemilla y Marc Gispert llegó la Fabricación Digital en Impresión 3D.

Basados en la temática de  b’Ars, donde se podían encontrar tanto: modeladores digitales, como escultores con técnicas manuales (tradicionales), el FabLab BCN quiso aportar su granito de arena intentando crear una actividad que juntara estas dos disciplinas. De esta manera se pensó en digitalizar el entorno físico para someterlo a una serie de manipulaciones haciendo así posible su futura materialización.

bars_07

El objetivo es vincular los mundos físco-virtual-físico, pasando de algo hecho a mano a algo realizado mediante tecnología de impresión 3D.

Mediante el software Skanect y utilizando una Kinect escanearon a los participantes voluntarios en la Feria. Así que durante los dos días de festival la impresora Makerbot no paró de imprimir replicas en 3D de dichos scaners.

bars_06

También imprimieron las esculturas producidas por la escuela Barcelona Arts Academy en su demostración de Life Sculpting.

El feedback de los visitantes después de probar esta experiencia fue muy satisfactorio y creó gran curiosidad, ya que la mayoría de los participantes venía del mundo del modelado digital y los efectos especiales. Tanto la facilidad con la que se pueden manejar estas herramientas como el resultado, sorprendió de manera muy positiva todos los visitantes.

Destacar que esta ha sido la primera versión del PopUpLab con la que FabLab BCN quiere dar forma a la idea de FabLab mobil modular.

The FabLab Log// Week 25 2014

With so much happening at FabLab each week, we share some of the latest news and projects we are working on..

INTRODUCING THE FabCar//

Move over Tesla, for Fab10Barcelona, we are building an open source vehicle: The FabCar!

sketch4

In collaboration with HP, OpenSource Vehicle and 5 other FabLabs around the world (Garagem FabLab (SP. Brasil)FabLab San DiegoFabCafe TokyoFaLab Manchester and Vigyan Ashram in India) Fab Lab Barcelona has designed a concept car based on the needs and desires of the Fab Lab and Maker communities.

The vehicle is based on OSV’s open source chassis, the Tabby. Around this, we are designing and producing the entire body of the FabCar at Fab Lab Barcelona and we will present the vehicle at the Fab10 conference on July 2nd at Barcelona’s Design Museum, DHUB.

The FabCar concept revolves around giving Fab Labs the ability to modify, customise and adapt a vehicle to their specific needs at any given time. We surveyed 32 Fab Lab stakeholders from around the world and found that, for the most part, labs do not own vehicles except in some rural areas where highly functional vehicles such as jeeps or SUVs are used.

Fab Lab survey respondents want to see a vehicle that has minimal ecological impact, is fuel efficient in urban traffic, and can carry a wide diversity of products across a city. Fab Labs aren’t as interested in speed or comfort for their urban vehicles: they are looking for an easily maintainable transport that meets a diversity of needs.

Our FabCar design has been built with these specifications top of mind. In the main, the vehicle comprises of an open chassis, with the possibility of adding interchangeable ‘pods’ depending on the need. For example, pods could provide functionalities, such as a portable bike rack, a food truck, or a mobile interactive exhibition space.

TechnicalDRAWINGS1

FabCar will be all electric and feature drive-by-wire technology. It is designed for the short trips commonly taken in urban environments. Our goal is to get the maximum carrying capacity from a small vehicle.

A GLIMPSE INTO OUR Fab10 PREPARATIONS//

The preparations for the global Fab10 Conference are now entering the final stage, with an inspiring symposium schedule planned, a community-led Fab Festival of activities organised, and now, our Fab10 Welcome Pack!

Fab TEXTILES SHOWCASE//

We will also be showcasing the work of Fab Textiles at Fab10. Fab Textiles is an entrepreneurial project of FabLab aimed at integrating the latest technological capacities into the textile industries.

cecilia low

Our showcase at Fab10 focuses on two journeys: fabricating smart textiles, and intertwining the worlds of digital art and creation with textile design.

For our smart textiles journey, we will be presenting examples of new sensor-driven textiles and discussing use cases that demonstrate where the world of smart textiles is headed.

soft_angie_4_low

For our digital art and creation, we are taking visitors on a journey that reimagines textile fabrication. Nothing is taken for granted in how we envision a new world of textile creation. So we have done away with the idea of the mannequin and have instead started with a 3D modeling process to reimagine the physical form onto which textiles will be applied. We have created a full 3D design body and from that have built molds. We will overlay these molds with some of the textile experiments and groundbreaking designs the Fab Textiles team have invented.
