The Future Interfaces Group is Designing the Everyday Devices of Tomorrow

There’s a lapse in smart technology where human context and cues exist in real life. Things like gestures, expressions, noises and secondary movements are all missed by tech that can only respond to vocal commands and touch. In the Future Interfaces Group lab, located just off Carnegie Mellon University’s campus, the devices of tomorrow—ones that can detect when you’re sawing, cooking or even tuning a …

When Steve Jobs Taught Andy Warhol to Make Art on the Very First Macintosh (1984)

When Andy Warhol first became famous, few knew what to make of his art. When Apple first released the Macintosh — dramatically promoted with that Ridley Scott Super Bowl commercial — few knew what to make of it either. The year was 1984, when almost nobody had seen a graphical user interface or even a mouse, let alone used them, and the Macintosh looked as strange and compelling when it entered the computing scene as Warhol did when he entered the art scene. Both seemed so casually to re...

DARPA’s wheel switches shapes with terrain!

Designed as a collaborative project between Carnegie Mellon University’s National Robotics Engineering Center and DARPA researchers, the Reconfigurable Wheel Track, dubbed the RWT, helps vehicles move on any sort of terrain… and it does so in spectacular fashion, by shapeshifting to turn from a rotary wheel to a track system.On much harder terrain, the RWT works like a regular wheel, rotating to help move the vehicle from point A to B, but the minute it reaches terrain that’s softer, like mud,...

Andy Warhol’s Seven Hand-Illustrated Books: Charming, Little-Known, and Now Available for the World to See (1952-1959)

Got a knack for drawing, painting, sculpting, creating handmade objects of any kind? You’re maybe more likely to monetize your skill—with an Etsy or Pinterest account, for example—than move to New York and try to make a go of it. Were such convenient means of setting up shop available in the late 40’s, when Andy Warhol studied art education and commercial art at the University of Pittsburgh and Carnegie Mellon University, respectively, one wonders whether the often bedridden, introverted artist...

This Hoverboard Does Not Want to Stop Exploding

You'd think no one would buy hoverboards anymore, given the stories of exploding batteries that have burned peoples' entire houses down. Apparently no one told the owner of this hoverboard, who brought it into a mall just last month. Once it started smoking, things went sideways for almost two minutes, despite people's efforts to kill the thing with fire extinguishers: So why does the darn thing keep exploding, even after being extinguished? Well, this isn't like a burning piece of paper, w...

A Business Incubator Service that Comes to You

Three years ago we started prototyping a new kind of incubation as a service. Not a building filled to the brim with young guys and their high tech, high growth app-building ventures, but instead, a kind of service that comes to you—and gets plugged into centers, workspaces, labs, makerspaces and bars. One of our first programs was in a bar called Crate in Hackney Wick, East London. The service is called Upstarter, and we help creative producers, designers, theater makers, social innovators, and...

Be Inspired By This Roaming Fish Robot

Have you been having a rough week or two? Probably! In case you're feeling as claustrophobic or erratic as the rest of the world, let yourself be moved (emotionally) by this (literally) moving fish tank robot. Scuba Suresh is the intrepid aquatic pilot of this distinctive fish-powered autonomous vehicle. Unlike the divisive Korean mech unveiled a month ago, Scuba and its robo-whip (named the Just Keep Swimming™) are both fun and bona fide real. This footage of the voyage was captured at the Buil...

Oklahoma earthquake activity up 4000%, locals sue oil and gas companies

Earthquake activity in Oklahoma has increased by around 4,000 percent over the past eight years, according to Carnegie Mellon University. Concerned about the dramatic rise, Carnegie Mellon and University of Pittsburgh researchers published two studies scrutinizing the connection between heightened seismic activity and wastewater injection into the earth after hydraulic fracturing, or fracking. Meanwhile, Oklahoma residents are suing 27 natural gas and oil companies over earthquake damage. Jus...

Yea or Nay? Super-Fast Fingernail-Painting Machine Meant to Engage Females With Technology

The issue of females being underrepresented in STEM fields isn't an easy one to unpack. The dismal statistics can also place an undue burden on the minority of females that do make public strides in STEM, unfairly asking them to represent their entire gender in addition to achieving their personal dreams. So I have mixed feelings about the following female-targeting invention, and want to see what you think: The Nailbot is currently in development by Walia's company, Preemadonna, which has ...

Colorful Installation in Tokyo by Emmanuelle Moureaux

Emmanuelle Moureaux, dont nous avons déjà parlé à de nombreuses reprises, continue d’étoffer sa série 100 Colors, qu’elle a lancé pour le 10ème anniversaire de son studio : le numéro 4 de sa collection est une installation au Carnegie Mellon University, à Pittsburgh. C’est la première fois que l’artiste expose hors du Japon, où elle est désormais basée, et qui l’a inspirée dès le début : elle explique qu’en arrivant à Tokyo, elle a été tellement frappée par les couleurs, et leur vivacité, que ce...
