Uniform is a creative consultancy based in Liverpool. They developed a three little nice cube that predict weather. It use cloud based weather data with physical connected devices, to create simple glanceable alerts and engaging user interactions. There is a long tradition of physical devices that describe current weather conditions, such as thermometers and […]

Berg Cloud, certainly the most innovative company in Europe designed a lovely idea for an interactive and low-consumption display. It was created for the project Futur Cities (sub-project Connected Streets) in collaboration with Catapult. A lovely and smart project that reminds me what Breakfast did few years ago with “Perception”. The idea to […]
The awesome studio Berg is back with a new project, a connected washing machine. It doesn’t sound that awesome, but people at Berg know how to master things they do. Their prototype is quite simple, but complete. You can schedule your laundry and its end, order washing powder online, have access to […]
The Well-Sequenced Synthesizer is a project created by Luisa Pereira. Using Arduino, she explored with physical interfaces and digital technology some musical rules. A wonderful and poetic way to play with sounds.The software has been developed in Java using Processing.org, using CFGen species counterpoint app. Firmware runs on an Arduino micro-controller. Source
A quick article to present you this great idea for the international music students of the Amsterdam Conservatory. They created their own recording room, that streams directly to the project’s website. They also put a giant red light outside the building to inform the neighborhood when they’re playing. And they’re not […]
There remains only few days before the end of this Kickstarter project. Smart Citizen is an open-source environmental monitoring platform consisting of arduino-compatible hardware, with data visualization web API, and mobile app. A excellent international project that could help our cities to take some initiative to improve our quality of […]
Points is the last project from Breakfast (see also Perception), as usual it’s a wonderful idea with a great execution. They built a new kind of signage that interact with foursquare, twitter, transportation API, RSS Feed… etc. A perfect urban objet to help you when you’re looking for something.
After the awesome lamp Pinokio, let me introduce you Vincent & Emily, two robots powered by Raspberry Pi, Arduino, Accelerometer, Stepper, Servo, Camera, Microphone, IR-LED. Software includes Linux Arch, Python and OpenCV. A bunch of different technology put together by Nikolas Schmid-Pfähler and Carolin Liebl from nachtproduktion. Vincent and Emily are two self-willed robots that show the viewer […]
Created by Shanshan Zhou et Adam Ben-Dror, this project transforms a simple lamp into a weird/funny technological pet, with Processing, Arduino, and OpenCV. A really impressive project which reminds me the Pixar animation logo. Pinokio is an exploration into the expressive and behavioural potentials of robotic computing. Customized computer code and electronic circuit design imbues […]
Lapka is a tiny, beautiful personal environment monitor that connects with your phone to measure, collect and analyze the hidden qualities of your surroundings.
Norwegian duo from skrekkøgle have developed ‘plugg’ – a prototype DAB radio, a result of exploring physical and metaphorical interactions with digital devices. The brightly colored geometric box form houses a maze of electronics allowing the radio to switch on and off based on removal of the cork covering the speaker. the […]
I’m a big Arduino fan, furthermore, I’m trying to learn processing and all that stuff. So I’m always exciting to share with you, some cool project that permit to create awesome things with imagination as the only limit. Successfully funded last year on kickstarter, Teagueduino is an open source electronic board and interface that […]
