Chassis am Wien

So we took Chassis to Roboexotica, the International Festival Of Cocktail Robotics, over there in Vienna. An awesome time was had by all, as might be seen in these pictures by Eddie Codel. Special thanks to Magnus of Shifz and Franz and Johannes of monochrom, and to Chris Veigl for helping us finagle Austrian beer fittings!

So it's come to this: i need one of those pretentious lower-case design portfolio websites. Ah well, folks will have to settle for this.

Lights in Interior Design

Hey look at that. The lights I designed for Bar Bambino made Interior Design magazine. (So they got a few details wrong, big whoop.)

If you are in the hood (right around the corner from NoiseBridge as it turns out) stop in and have a glass of Lagrein.

The Robots are Coming

All of them. More precisely, this Saturday there is a rare confluence of space weather that brings together both Chassis and SWARM in the same space-time coordinates, namely the Laughing Squid Anniversary Party, conveniently located at Cellspace. If you're curious as to how exactly I've been wasting my time for the past year or so come on out and see the results. (Hope they work.)

Come get a drink from Chassis!

Chassis has a Posse Website

Chassis has a website.

Hosted by Laughing Squid, natürlich, who took some awesome photos of last week's Roboexotica USA. (We also got some press from Wired, yay).

Thanks to the irrepressible Magnus at SHIFZ and Skot Kuiper for the venue.

Chassis at the San Jose Museum of Art

So Chassis had his first paying gig at the SJMA last night. After some opening-night jitters (I can't believe we hooked up the keg tap backwards!) things went completely smoothly, and the beer ran out at precisely 9:00 PM when the reception ended.

I'm continually surprised and amazed just how willing people are to treat a a vaguely-humanoid piece of junk like a person.

Thanks to Lucky Nora for the photos

Video as promised

Here's some video of the LED lightwall I mentioned earlier.

Finally done

After more than a year, this custom 1440-LED installation I did for a private residence is finally up. What you see here is less than 1/5 of the whole thing (I couldn't get a shot of the big living room panel because of construction equipment in the way). It came out pretty great. Pictures show snaps of two different video programs ("reflections" and "sparkle"). (I'll get some video up as soon as I can figure out how to rotate it in a way that doesn't break the video sites.)

Source video by Sierra Helvey, installation assistance by Soo-Hwa Yuan, project conception and managment by Peter Noble and Mike Webb of Revolverdesign, architecture by Craig Steely, thanks to Luigi Argento and Philip Springer.

Do YOU have ANY IDEA of the COSMIC FORCES that could be UNLEASHED if you TURN THAT DIAL???

(WTF? It's a custom Orb shell from SWARM, with a custom light pod and controller, for a private collector of exquisite taste.)


Tip of the hubcap to Erik for pictures and considerable help

Classy Chassis

Various folx remind me that blogs are for shameless self-promotion and that I should do more of that. Sorry, I forgot!

A recent creation is Chassis the Drink-Serving Robot, done up bloggy-style by Simone (thanx S!). She even posted a video.

Chassis will be coming to the San Jose Museum of Art at a gala robot-themed opening April 11. (Oops: unfortunately this is a museum members-only affair. To see Chassis in action looks like someone else needs to throw a party.)
