carbon3D’s CLIP technology enables fast, layerless printing

introducing the new ‘continuous liquid interface production technology’ (CLIP) at a TED conference, carbon3D demonstrates a 3D printing development that harnesses light and oxygen to rapidly and continuously fabricate objects from a pool of resin. instead of producing models layer-by-layer in a 2D pattern, the process balances the interaction of UV which triggers photo polymerization, and oxygen that inhibits the reaction. this makes it able to produce with consistent mechanical properties, using a broad range of materials, and does so, at a fast speed that is 25-100 times quicker than conventional 3D printing methods.

On the Wings of Freedom by Aether & Hemera

Aether & Hemera on their project:

Butterflies are the symbol of change, creativity, soul freedom, joy and colour. Their power is transformation, shape shifting and evolution.

Butterflies represent transformation and freedom across all cultures; ‘Bright Cities’ are places where people can grow culturally, socially and broaden their mind; our glowing butterflies are symbols of this potential change and  cultural evolution.

The swarm of butterflies creates an array of RGB LEDs which are individually addressable and are choreographed for rich lighting effects based on the audience interaction.

Storytelling through playful interactions

Installation by agency Dalziel + Pow demonstrates how experiences with interaction and projection can work well with screenprinted illustrations made with conductive ink:

As part of our presence at the inaugural Retail Design Expo, we have created a space to stand out from the crowd, a conversation starter: experimental, innovative, playful, integrated, exploratory and, to many visitors, surprising. 

… Screen-printed illustrations spring to life when touched, as conductive ink triggers a host of playful digital animations – a mix of informative and charming content, from product information to brand stories to chasing ducks.

Pushing the boundaries of storytelling within a space, making it fun and engaging, putting ideas before hardware.

A total of 48 interactions and over 100 unique animations make up the broad spectrum of content on the stand, from simple sound toys to more complex exchanges that layer projection mapping and movement around a physical space.

EGO

Interactive installation by Klaus Obermaier produces animated stick characters that mimic your movements:

In psychology the mirror stage describes the formation of the Ego via the process of objectification, the Ego being the result of a conflict between one’s perceived visual appearance and one’s emotional experience. This identification is what psychoanalyst Jacques Lacan called alienation.

The interactive installation EGO re-stages and reverses the process of alienation by enhancing and deforming the mirror image by the movements of the users. Although an abstraction, it quickly becomes the self and reestablishes the tension between the real and the symbolic, the Ego and the It, the subject and the object.
