AZ ready for world domination
It took us a while, but practice makes perfect, and we’re now much closer to ridiculing Justin Bieber than we’ve ever been before!
You might have noticed what derived from our Residency @ Espaço do Tempo, a dozen projects from several folks spread over the 3 labs exploring the robotic, the interactive, the sensorial, the tangible, the generative, the audiovisual, the augmented, the provocative, the performative and a few other of all those dirty little words you so much secretly love hearing about. Don’t be shy now. Nothing wrong with getting a little tangible now and again. ;)
We even participated in a little exhibit last month at Pavilhão Atlântico to present these and a couple other works. And now we’re back with more weapons of mass destruction. And now, this very weekend we’re meeting up again for some holiday hacking follery at LCD to show some more of our projects and do a few mini-sprints. Feel free to join us. Lock up your geeks, we’re coming for them!
And if all this wasn’t good enough to turn you on and make you come down to meet us and participate, allow me to break some further news to you. Two of our projects have recently received their due acknowledgement by two of the highest distinctions in these parts:
- “Among” By Sérgio Ferreira et al won Fundacion Telefonica’s VIDA competition, read all about it in the news (.pt only) and the interview.
- “Big Brother Goes Green: Surveillance for Sustainable Forests” by Mónica Mendes et al was approved at South By SouthWest.
And just in case you recognize the lab affiliations from the above and feel like xDA is slacking off compared to our counterparts: we’re not, we got multitouch interfaces.
And if you’ve read this far, please make some tea and have yourself a Bieber moment in a cube. You’re welcome.
