  • “The Facade­print­er is a sim­ple, soft­ware con­trolled robot. It con­sists of a two axis turn table and an air­pres­sure print­head. The print­er shoots the art­work from a dis­tanced posi­tion dot by dot onto the cho­sen area.” Crazy stuff, the things it ‘prints’ have a very dis­tinct esthet­ic.
  • “Game­Camp is a gath­er­ing for the peo­ple who are build­ing that world [a world with ubiq­ui­tous video gam­ing]. It’s for the design­ers, coders, artists, writ­ers, thinkers and play­ers who are mak­ing the 21st cen­tu­ry the cen­tu­ry of the game. Game­Camp is about more than mak­ing games: it’s about play­ing them, think­ing about them and how they affect our lives for good or for ill.” Sounds like an event I’d like to see hap­pen in NL some time.
