What is it like to sculpt with motion? Topobo is a construction toy with kinetic memory, able to record and playback physical motion. Snap together Passive (static) and Active (robotic) pieces into a creation, and with a press of a button and a flick of the wrist, you can teach your creation how to dance or walk.
musicBottles is an interactive installation for visitors to interact with soundwaves encapsulated in bottles. The installation consists of a set of bottle that encapsulate sounds from Boston, Cambridge and the MIT neighborhood.
Both systems are based on Brain-Computer Interfaces that measure brainwaves in real-time and process immediately to have real-time feedback. Learn more about recoveriX and mindBEAGLE and communicate only by your thoughts!
The highlight of the final day of the festival features encounters of both a sensory as well as intellectual nature with electronic and experimental music. Accompanied by musician/musicologist Werner Jauk (AT), festivalgoers will enjoy close-up contacts with creative artists as well as first-hand insights into the music and tonal worlds conjured up at the festival.
In addition to the highlights of the Museum of the Future including the Deep Space 8K, this tour spotlights “Radical Atoms,” an exhibition that premiered at the 2016 Ars Electronica Festival.
