Robot’s Cradle: Shortest Path Prototype

Stephanie Smid and Sarika Bajaj current progress | example artifacts | next steps Our project involves creating a hybrid workflow that combines human drawing skill and robotic assembly for peg loom weaving. Through this workflow, artists should be able to draw patterns with specified string densities that a robot will solve for and manually string

PanCap

PanCap Varun Gadh, Hang Wang 02-19-2018 Please find our video here. Abstract The initial goal of PanCap was to use motion capture technology to better understand, and digitally simulate, the process of flipping a pancake. We have been able to achieve both of these goals. A tertiary goal – to try to glean information from

Gesture Drawing Analysis

Gesture Drawing Analysis Stephanie Smid, Jett Vaultz Feb. 18, 2018 https://vimeo.com/256356880   ABSTRACT Drawing machines typically rely on constant pressure, use pressure for line thickness, or have no varying thickness at all.┬áIn freehand gesture drawing, an artist uses much more than just pressure to create varying lineweights. Tools such as pencils that have a variety
