O Robô-Aranha com cabeça que anda e consegue modular expressões faciais.

Sun, 2008-11-23 23:41
O robô andante Sterlac tem uma cabeça e é capaz de se movimentar autonomamente a partir de uma biblioteca de movimentos pré-definidos. A ação do movimento é disparada baseada em nas circunstâncias enfrentadas, tais como a posição atual e os obstáculos fixos e móveis. Além de apresentar capacidade de “aprendizagem”, o robô traz uma função inquietante: ele exibe uma cabeça renderizada através de computação gráfica, num monitor de LCD montado na parte superior, que reage através de expressões no ro

La oreja en el brazo que se conectará a Internet

Wed, 2008-10-29 12:07
Escultor genético: Stelarc deja atrás los materiales más postmodernos para usar el propio cuerpo humano. El cuerpo del siglo XXI, modificado, tratado, intervenido, tecnificado. Su obra más conocida: una oreja sintética fabricada a partir de material orgánico, implantada en su antebrazo junto a una una estructura de biopolímero que permite el crecimiento del apéndice. El próximo paso: añadirle un micrófono para conectarse a un transmisor Bluetooth con el que la oreja biónica podría conectarse

It Is Third Ear, Not Third Eye

Tue, 2008-10-07 16:21
An Australian performer who has had an ear grafted onto his forearm in the name of art has sparked controversy. Cyprus-born Stelios Arcadiou, known as Stelarc, says his extra ear, made of human cartilage, is an augmentation of the body’s form. But surgeons questioned whether such an operation should have been carried out, given the absence of clinical need. A patient who had similar surgery to correct a birth defect said she found the artist’s work offensive. Stelarc, aged 61, said it h

Cybernetic Art: These key artists have focused their works on the close interface between the organic and robotic, as a means for commenting on transhumanism, the relationship between man and machine in the current digital age, and philosophical questions of what differentiates the organic mind from the robotic. STELARC ("http://www.stelarc.va.com.au/arcx.html") STELARC has done multiple performance art pieces in which he directly interfaces his own nervous system with robotics to allow him to
