Making/CAD: Shaping Atoms Using Bits

Presenter

Carl Bass is CEO of 3D design and engineering software company Autodesk. Bass is a maker and spends his spare time building things—from chairs and tables to boats, and most recently, an electric go-kart. He'll talk about the tools that anyone can use to bring their ideas into the physical world--from CAD software to rapid prototyping by 3D printer to CNC.n


danceroom Spectroscopy: Navigating the Nanoworld

Presenter

dS is a unique project that's part video game, part art installation, part musical instrument, and part immersive science visualization. It brings together scientists and artists who are motivated by a desire to reveal and interpret our connection to the beautiful and subtle microscopic world. And it gives audience members the opportunity to see their own energy field, and use it to dance, sculpt, and play with a simulation of the otherwise invisible atomic world. It is used in public art galleries, schools, and festivals to make serious science seriously fun!



castAR

Exhibit

castAR is the premier projected augmented reality system. With the look and feel of sunglasses, castAR lets multiple users see and manipulate holographic-like images, all while still being visually grounded in the real world.



Mobile 3D Scanner

Exhibit

An Arduino + Android based turn table 3D scanner. The Arduino rotates the table while the Android phone takes an image and analyse it. The Arduino and the phone communicate via Bluetooth.



Rover – A LEGO self-driving car

Presenter

Rover is an autonomous mobile robot platform, consisting of a LEGO base, a depth sensor, and a laptop on top of the base for image processing, path planning and human robot interaction. This robot won an Intel perceptual computing award and was presented with Intel at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. It is going to be demonstrated next at CeBIT in Hannover - Europe's most important computer faire.
