FabPod – Daniel Davis

FabPod – Daniel Davis | IComputation | Scoop.it

The FabPod is an acoustically tuned meeting room housed within an open-plan office at the RMIT Design Hub. The geometry of the FabPod derives from research we had previously conducted on the sound scattering properties of hyperboloids as part of the Responsive Acoustic Surface workshop (2011) – itself inspired by Gaudí’s use of hyperboloids.

The Handibot, a Portable CNC Mill with Unlimited Work Area Capacity, Goes Live on Kickstarter

The Handibot, a Portable CNC Mill with Unlimited Work Area Capacity, Goes Live on Kickstarter | IComputation | Scoop.it
CNC mills live in shops, and power tools are things you can carry around. That's been the paradigm. But building on their successful 17 years of producing and refining CNC mills, ShopBot Tools has now combined the two worlds with their new, portable, crowdfunded Handibot. (The Kickstarter campaign went live about fifteen minutes ago.) The Handibot is what they're calling a "smart tool," and it's essentially a 3-axis CNC mill that you can carry (and run via PC, tablet

IComputation's insight:

had been waiting for this technique to be developed! Finally precise milling is loosing it's machine-bound limitations!

Woodability | CAAD. Blog

Woodability | CAAD. Blog | IComputation | Scoop.it

The color information of the wood sample images are translated from the spatial domain into the frequency domain by applying a Fast Fourier Transformation (FFT). Regularly reappearing features of the image are captured and described by their wave length, amplitude, and phase angle.

By crossing over high and low frequencies from different inputs, by flipping rows to create new symmetry relationships or by applying filters, new and somewhat intriguing kinds of meta-wood are being synthesized following a hidden musical score. The results are not just mirrored but interwoven, not perfectly symmetrical but a bit like a piece of wood cut open and the two halves put side by side – similar but not equal.
