’London Underground Circuit Maps’ by Yuri Suzuki
Responding to ‘thrift’ as a theme, Suzuki’s work explores communication systems in consumer electronics. A printed circuit board (PCB) is used as a precedent for developing a electrical circuit influenced by Harry Beck’s iconic London underground map diagrams. By strategically positioning certain speaker, resistor and battery components throughout the map, users can visually understand the complex networks associated with electricity and how power is generated within a radio.
E-volo Personal Helicoptor:
The ‘e-volo' multicopter is a prototype personal transport vehicle, steerable via joystock and powered by sixteen propellers to hover in the air. a team of german professionals— physicist Thomas Senkel, programmer Stephan Wolf, and designer Philipp Halisch, as well as Alexander Zosel— have just completed the first prototype and test flight of the craft, which they imagine for use towards entertainment purposes, aerial photography and inspection, and short-distance travel.
A great inspiration for designing your own vehicle and becoming a Transport Engineer.
BeetBox is a simple instrument that allows users to play drum beats by touching actual beets. It is powered by a Raspberry Pi with a capacitive sensing board and an audio amplifier in a hand-made wooden enclosure.
MaKey MaKey: An Invention Kit for Everyone
Let’s say you load up a piano. Then, instead of using the computer keyboard buttons to play the piano, you can hook up the MaKey MaKey to something fun, like bananas, and the bananas become your piano keys. MaKey MaKey lets you turn everyday objects into touchpads and combine them with the internet. It’s a simple Invention Kit for Beginners and Experts doing art, engineering, and everything inbetween. A great inspiration for becoming a Musician.
