Quadrature

Quadrature

Quadrature is a audio/visual performance project by Griduo* in collaboration with Due3* that interacts with the perception of santralistanbul Art and Culture Center’s Main Gallery building located in Istanbul/Turkey.

Shape Shifting Cabinets

Shape Shifting Cabinets

Sebastian Errazuriz Studio is creating a series of kinetic sculptures that focus on interactive furniture. With his functional sculpture projects, Errazuriz is rethinking the everyday and “breaking open the box.”

Hyundai Motorstudio Goyang

Hyundai Motorstudio Goyang

Hyundai Motorstudio Goyang is the largest automobile theme park in Korea, located about 40min northwest of Seoul. The highlight of the exhibition is the Design Area featuring a beautifully designed kinetic sculpture and a spectacular 360 degree film presentation for which designers have created multichannel sound and music.

Origami Structures and Examples

Origami Structures and Examples

In recent decades origami structures and forms has been of increasing interest to mathematicians and engineers. Mathematicians are more interested in the geometrical aspects of origami objects such as foldability of origami patterns, especially foldability of developable surfaces.

Origami Structure Innovations

Origami Structure Innovations

Origami is the ancient Japanese art of paper folding. But to engineer Mary Frecker of Pennsylvania State University, it is the future for designing tools that could be used in fields such as medicine and space exploration.

Make A Ripple kinetic sculpture

Make A Ripple

Make A Ripple (2017) is a custom kinetic sculpture. It consists of 60 moving elements that are interconnected with springs. The elements are counterbalanced rods with disks on the ends which can pivot freely on a kind of universal joint.

Mysteries of Minimal Surfaces

Mysteries of Minimal Surfaces

This is a video by Hojoo Lee showing complex analysis meets minimal surfaces. In mathematics, a minimal surface is a surface that locally minimizes its area. This is equivalent to having zero mean curvature.The term “minimal surface” is used because these surfaces originally arose as surfaces that minimized total surface area subject to some constraint.

Transforming Toys

Transforming Toys

Chuck Hoberman is an artist, engineer, architect, and inventor of folding toys and structures, most notably the Hoberman sphere. In addition to toys such as the Hoberman sphere, Hoberman created the BrainTwist, a hard plastic tetrahedron that folds, stellates, and becomes self-dual while having a component that rotates similarly to a Rubik’s Cube.

Self Assembling Robot Cubes

Self Assembling Robot Cubes

Designed by MIT researchers and Known as M-Blocks, these self assembling robots are cubes with no external moving parts. Nonetheless, they’re able to climb over and around one another, leap through the air, roll across the ground, and even move while suspended upside down from metallic surfaces.

Hyperbola From Sticks

Hyperbola From Sticks

This film was made by Ashok Rupner TATA Trust: Make a wonderful HYPERBOLA from straight sticks! This work was supported by IUCAA and Tata Trust. In geometry, a hyperboloid of revolution, sometimes called circular hyperboloid, is a surface that may be generated by rotating a hyperbola around one of its principal axes.

Buckling Induced Kirigami

Buckling Induced Kirigami

This is a video by Ahmad Rafsanjani showing buckling-Induced Kirigami Physical Review. Kirigami is a variation of origami that includes cutting of the paper, rather than solely folding the paper as is the case with origami, but typically does not use glue.Typically, kirigami starts with a folded base,

The Navicula Light

Navicula is derived from nature, in this case from one of the many microscopic diatoms that float around in the oceans. The flowing, segmented form is shipped as kitset and assembled on site with push-in nylon clips. The thin curved pieces of CNC-cut bamboo plywood create a flowing structure

Amazing Resonance Experiment

This experiment is the Chladni plate experiment. designer used a tone generator, a wave driver (speaker) and a metal plate attached to the speaker. First add sand to the plate then begin playing a tone.

Amazing Science Gadgets

Oddly satisfying scientific curiosities featuring various engines with candles, ferrofluid toys, kinetic art that uses physics, optical illusions, various forms of dices, math toys/shapes and more mindblowing stuff!

Amazing Magnetic Games

It’s always interesting to observe the magnetic fields and experiments in this regard. Here is a collection of all the ways to observe the secret and invisible side of magnets.

Origami Practical Uses

Georgia Tech researchers find ways to use Origami as the structural basis for real world applications such as deployable antennas and bridges.

Clothes Grow With Kids

Petit Pli constructs the most advanced technical children’s clothing in the world. Petit Pli’s recycled, versatile & rainproof garments are embedded with a patent pending structure that allows them to grow bi-directionally to custom fit children from 9 months to 4 years of age.

Diffusion Choir Sculpture

Diffusion Choir is a kinetic sculpture in Massachusetts that moves like a flock of birds. It’s comprised of 400 origami-like birds that perform a synchronized dance.

Philips LED Facade Lighting

Philips, the global leader in lighting, and the German soccer champion presented a new LED façade lighting at the Allianz Arena for the first time on.The entire innovative Philips system can be controlled digitally and is capable of reproducing 16 million colors.

Wave Machine Sculpture

Wave Machine Sculpture

The FiberLab Symphony Orchestra, consisting of 1 perforated hardboard, 2 craft rings, 12 wooden trims, 288 wooden balls, 720 metal findings, and about 1500 feet of nylon string – all accompanied by the ravishingly beautiful String Quartet No. 2 by Alexander Borodin.

HypoSurface Interactive Installation

HypoSurface

The Hyposurface is comprised by a matrix of actuators, which are given positional information via a highly efficient bus system as well as an array of electronic sensors used to trigger a variety of mathematical deployment programs.

ShapeShift Interactive Tabletop Display

ShapeShift

ShapeShift is a compact, high-resolution (7 mm pitch), mobile tabletop shape display. We explore potential interaction techniques in both passive and active mobile scenarios. In the passive case, the user is able to freely move and spin the display as it renders elements.
