Experimental details

Faire: Delft
Maker: Laura Ketting
Home: Zuid Holland, Nederland
By making you will see. By seeing you will make. Dit is de manier waarop ik mijn werkwijze z omschrijven. In dit werk komen verschillen uit eerder gemaakt werk samen wat zorgt experimentele gelaagdheid. Elk werk wat ik zie ik als een oneidige ontdekkingsreis die wil delen met de kijker. Als grafisch ontwerper speelt typografie een belangrijke rol in alles wat je creëert. Letters vormen de woorden die een boodschap communiceren. In Laura's werk zijn letters meer dan enkel een communicatiemiddel. In de werken gebruikt Laura letters als een beeld op zichzelf. In plaats van een boodschap te communiceren wil Laura een ervaring overbrengen. Via deze weg verandert de manier waarop je naar letters kijkt en komt je eigen inbeeldingsvermogen tot leven. Door gebruik van zwart en wit ligt de focus volledig op de vorm.

The controller has been designed to meet the needs of both the industrial sector and makers, ensuring the right level of safety and ease of assembly, thanks to its RJ45 connectors that simplify and speed up wiring, reducing connection errors. In this way, even those without specific knowledge in electronics or informatics can use it easily and intuitively, making work even more manageable. The main goal of the project is to create a community that can develop the CNC technologies, a sector that has been somewhat neglected compared to that of 3D printers, despite its importance in the industrial field. Cortex offers makers and industry professionals the necessary tools to develop and improve their own projects. Its flexibility and versatility make it suitable for various applications in which the control of motors, sensors, and actuators is necessary, in addition to its use on CNC machines.

FRANCHINO IL ROBOTTINO PER L’AGRICOLTURA

Faire: Rome
Maker: Fondazione ITS E.A.T. di Grosseto
 
It is known that in agriculture a healthy and protected environment is important for having a quality harvest. Being able to intervene promptly and within tight deadlines is essential in agriculture to solve any problem encountered in the soil. Hence the idea of ​​creating a "robot insect" that is able to move autonomously on the ground and, thanks to the advanced technology with which it is equipped, will be able to analyze the technical parameters of the soil. This allows the farmer to have the results in real time (or in any case a few minutes after the analysis) without having to wait days (as in the current laboratory analysis method).
