Penguin Mirror (2015) by Daniel Rozin – an interactive artwork featuring an array of 450 stuffed penguins on individual rotating platforms that generates the silhouette of viewers captured with cameras.
Yes. That lovely sound, the time lag, the collective adorbz.
MIT engineers John Romanishin and Kyle Gilpin have invented a new type of modular cube robot – the M-block – that can propel itself forward with the aid of a spinning internal 20,000rpm flywheel, leap, climb and snap using magnets onto other similar bots to form larger arrays. MIT News sez:
Inside each M-Block is a flywheel that can reach speeds of 20,000 revolutions per minute; when the flywheel is braked, it imparts its angular momentum to the cube. On each edge of an M-Block, and on every face, are cleverly arranged permanent magnets that allow any two cubes to attach to each other.
