As part of the ‘Sculpture in Motion’ project, Hyundai as unveiled a large-scale kinetic installation designed by California-based artist Reuben Margolin at the opening of 2015 Milan Design Week, celebrating the relationship between movement in the natural and automotive worlds. Helio Curve recreates the movement of an ocean wave by suspending 400 open-celled tongue-and-groove wooden blocks within a five-meter cube, each block linked by string to an electrically-powered metal drive. The individual blocks appear to be connected to form a wave over 3m high, which ebbs and flows in a continuous rhythms of ‘living motion’ that never repeats, highlighting the variability and harmonious flow of organic movement – and celebrating movement itself as an art form. With an exclusively designed lighting, Helio Curve casts a huge fluidic shadow, enhancing the experience even further.
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.
