Play Super Nintendo Games on your BeagleBone Black

BeagleSNES is a complete Super Nintendo emulator system for the BeagleBoard-xM and BeagleBone Black hardware platforms. The version 0.5 release of BeagleSNES improves upon the previous version by adding support for the Circuitco LCD3 cape board for the BeagleBone Black, using a new XML-based configuration file to add games to the game selection GUI, adding button mapping support so that you can use your favorite gamepads with BeagleSNES, and making the BeagleSNES filesystem mountable on your Windows, OS X, or Linux PC to easily add games or change the configuration. Full file system images, source code, and documentation are available for download from the BeagleSNES web site.

14-month-old Roland Lian Cung Bawi, son of two Burmese immigrants living in Owensboro, Kentucky, had major defects to his heart. The defects included a hole in his heart, as well as misaligned aorta and pulmonary arteries, and if left untreated, he would have died not long after. Cardiothoracic Surgeon, Erle Austin, stepped in, taking 2D images of Roland’s heart, which he then showed to his fellow surgeons, as he attempted to correct Roland’s young heart.Read more at http://www.tweaktown.com/news/35649/makerbot-replicator-2x-3d-printed-heart-saves-14-month-old-boy-s-life/index.html#VsOEjVGoDDmel5LH.99

Really cool DIY project!

The Color Play is a project by Louise Foo and Natasha Dzurny from Introduction to Physical Computing at the Interactive Telecommunications Program at NYU. 


The design is based on a record player, and features removable trays, interchangeable color pieces, and a knob to change the speed of the spin. A light up arrow points to the color sensor made from an RGB LED and a photocell. Because each color absorbs and reflects unique colors of light, it shines Red, Green, and Blue light at the target and records the amount of light that returns. The Arduino sends a midi note to Ableton based on these values.


An interesting project considering the prototype is a mechanism for “voluntary synaesthesia”.

Dexter is an experimental PCB based synthesiser from design and invention studio Dentaku.  Dexter allows you to combine sensors, inputs and touchpads and easily create your own electronic musical instrument. You can make a drum kit out of out of some saucepans or an origami that sings when touched. Dexter is designed to let anyone unpack a kit and interact with sound however they want to, no soldering or coding required.

Near Now are working with Dentaku on an R&D phase to develop Dexter as a tool to learn electronics through music and music through electronics.

Angles Mirror

The “Angles Mirror” rejects the idea of building a picture based on relative lightness and darkness. Instead, it explores a system of linear rotation that indicates the direction of an object’s contour. A wall-mounted sculpture, the “Angles Mirror” is a sharp triangular block of steel, dotted with yellow indicator arms that pivot. Based on the isometric grid, its structure favors the patterns and angles found in an equilateral triangle. The arms, which do not have the ability to change brightness or luminosity, use input from a camera and reconstruct the view with areas of varying angles. The negative space surrounding a viewer is translated into horizontal lines on the picture plane. Rather than creating a photorealistic image, the three-dimensional movement of a figure is represented, visualizing optical flow as viewer’s proximity to the sculpture changes. A nuanced contour results, as the viewer shifts back and forth, altering how the structure of space is perceived. Similar to “Fan Mirror”, in the “Angles Mirror”, the sequence of movement across the picture plane is directed in part by its audience. When the viewer walks away from the work, or chooses to view the sculpture from a distance, a series of predefined images and transitions cover the object’s surface.

The Percussion Kitchen is an electronic rhythm instrument that uses household cooking items as its drums and cymbals. A durable arcade button controller triggers a servo motor plus an array of solenoids that strike the various objects to produce acoustic, percussive sounds.

It was designed and built by New York-based artists/designers Devin Curry and Ben Gullard, who are graduate students at NYU ITP.
