…Today the Belgian artist Frederik De Wilde and Melotte present the result of their cooperation where these ways have been treated together, meaning a first big step in the integration of big data and Carbon Nano Tubes for Melotte’s business model.
…Since several years, together with NASA the artist is exploring “blacker than black”; meaning a black realised by means of carbon nano tubes and nanotechnology. The cooperation is prolonged and the result NASAblck-Crcl #1 that will be presented at the New Media Art Fair at Munich (Germany) is a wonderful proof of concept for the cross-over application between art, science, technology and entrepreneurial expertise.
The demonstration project M1Ne#1 is a representation of the old mine shafts. By means of advanced computer software this 2D environment was translated into a complex 3D shape and afterwards digitally adjusted for 3D print technology. The object surface was adjusted which created the perfect subsoil for letting grow Carbon Nano Tubes. The result is an amazing piece of optical fascination; the 3D structure is so deep black that all reflection disappears originating an optical illusion. 3D becomes 2D again or the well known black hole!

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
