Nuclear Devices

Dzl and Peter of illutron were working today on creating some nice Nuclear Devices! They aren't actually Nuclear, but rather large fire cannons for a rock festival called Copenhell. We're quite excited. In the video below you can see the ignitor system. The red canister in the photo is the gas canister, and a tube will go on top of that to funnel the fuel upwards until it reaches the ignitor and explodes. Good times!

Biometric Social Interaction @ Thoughtmade

GeekPhysical attended Thoughtmade, a gathering of creative innovators at a culture nightclub (Inkonst) in Malmo, Sweden. We presented ourselves, and our thoughts on pushing the amazing stuff going on in the Oresund region (Copenhagen & Malmo) out into the world and encouraged people to start exploring, tinkering, and making things! We had a fabulous time and are very happy to be part of such an important movement.

Me & Mrs. Jones, interactive clothing project

Touch interface
Originally uploaded by geekphysical
A project exploring touch and clothing. We're creating (with friends) a series of clothing that creates a sense of connection between people.

The first outfit is a skirt and blouse. When someone holds the wearer around the waist, she lights up, skirt embedded with fiber optics and blouse with LEDs.

The second outfit is a man's shirt with a target on the breast pocket. If someone touches the target, the opening of the shirt glows red.

These two together are what constitute Me & Mrs. Jones, inspired by the jazz song of two people coming together for a secret rendezvous.

The third outfit is created by Mads Høbye as he uses an adapated version of Dzl's Arduino Synth and lights up with the music and touch, a moving rock concert.
