Image from Nature - Synthetic analog computation in living cells, May 2013
In a 4 day µ-Residency our guests, Ralf Schreiber
& derstrudel (Christian Faubel)
, the Masters of Workshopology, together with dusjagr
, are transforming the BioTehna Lab into a space for experimentation on minimal electronics and explore new grounds of combining their experiences with new bioinspired approaches of slimes, bugs, worms, biological oscillators, hydrogels or whatever we can find.
Everybody is welcome to join us in the BioTehna Lab for discussions, sharing of ideas, and explore concepts of SoftBots and Workshopology
OverHeadBots Workshop, Sa 18.5.2013
OverHeadBots - alive and wiggling since 2006
In the Overheadbots workshop
you create a tiny solar robot that harvest its energy from the light of an overhead projector. Whenever the robot has collected enough energy it makes a pulsed movement. Through the projection this movement and the robots shadow appear as real-time animated shadow play. The workshop has two parts, first a technical part and second a design part. In the technical part you solder the electronic circuit. In the design part you work on the shape of the robot and the image that is produced through the projection.
Ideal for children of all age 6 – 99 years old
Because of the large interest there are two workshops, one in the morning 11-13h and one in the afternoon 14-16h.

SoftBots Workshop, show & tell interdisciplinary hack-session, Mo 20.5.2013, 17h – 20h
Experiments with 'Blow your own Wurst' and other magneto-slimes
During the SoftBots workshop we will experiment with different liquids and gels in combination with small electronic circuits. The basic ingredients will be minimal electronic circuits that produce either small sounds or small pulsed movement. We will experiment how these can be combined with liquids by producing tiny waterproof housings, or expereminet with non conducting liquids. Show & tell interdisciplinary hack-session with an electronic artist Ralf Schneider, a scientist on artificial intelligence and artist Christian Faubel and a DIYbio enthusiast Marc Dusseiller.
