A digital artist known as Chaotic Atmospheres has run city maps through World Terrain, a software system that simulates real-world geological events like erosion. The results are these evocative "erosion flow maps" that imagine what might happen to cities if they flowed into the environments around them.
Mosques throughout the Muslim world have some of the most intricate and exquisite architecture ever created by mankind. There's too much amazing architecture in them to cover in just one post, so we decided to focus simply on mosque's ceilings – something the faithful might see when they look up to the heavens.
Robo.Op is an open hardware / open software platform for hacking industrial
robots (IRs). Robo.Op makes it cheaper and easier to customize your IR for
creative use, so you can explore the fringes of industrial robotics. The
toolkit is made up of a modular prototyping platform, a simpler software
interface, and a centralized hub for sharing knowledge, tools, and code.
RC4 in London researches computational design methodologies for large-scale 3D printing with industrial robots, taking logistical, structural and material constraints as design opportunities to generate non-representational architectural spaces with extreme information density.
Sisterhood of Weavers: With a remarkable array of communication skills, weaver ants may have perfected social networking.
Talk about tooling and biological machines: this adult weaver in Australia holds a silk-producing larva in its jaws, spreading the larva’s sticky secretions to bind leaves for the colony nest.
