maker faire-ish

I was out of town the week of maker faire, but the festival I was working at had some cool stuff.

This is chroma. It’s an “interactive ecosystem” that responds to human disturbance.

The team used arduinos to control phillips bulbs. They were realllly pretty and responded to touch. It felt like being in a room with a bunch of floating jellyfish.

This isn’t very pcompy, but I thought was interesting. I heard the mind behind Bjork’s Biophilia music app album speak. They released a series of apps for each song on the album. Each app is a different way to experience the song. My favorite was virus–in order to hear the song in its entirety, you have to let the cell die.
