To celebrate Easter 2014 the Metropolitan Hotel London commissioned 8 well known artists to produce an interpretation of an Easter egg. In response Studio Waldemeyer created an experimental design inspired by the imperial Faberge eggs. Based on a parametric 3D design it combines structural components with circuit boards, mixing their function in the design. Structural components become part of the circuit and the circuit boards become part of the structure – completely eliminating the need for wires to power the nearly 400 LEDs in this design. The result of this innovative approach is a breathtaking aesthetic that combines a luxurious elegance with a hint of science fiction and alien life forms.
The egg will be auctioned by Christies with all proceeds going to Metropolitan London’s charity partner, Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice.
A big thank you goes to Effimia Giannopoulou of FaberArium and to PCBTrain for their support of this project.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
