Vehicle #3: Heliotropic Benches : eleet warez

VEHICLE #3: HELIOTROPIC BENCHES (FOR BEAGLE II)



An experiment in embedded computing and autonomous furniture that has been exhibited as part of Creativity & Cognition 2009, the Wisconsin Science Festival 2011, and Art San Diego.

Vehicle #3: Heliotropic Benches (for Beagle II) is a set of five carbon fiber benches, which motivate themselves towards bright spots in a given space and takes the investigation started with Vehicle #1 to its il/logical conclusion. These more-than-fully functional benches exert their autonomy, problematizing the assumed relationship of the user to the object. They rove around until their is sufficient light on their solar panels, then stop and charge their batteries. If moved into the shade to be sat upon, they spring back to life and move back into the sunlight when relieved of service.


Strict Standards: date() [function.date]: It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. Please use the date.timezone setting, the TZ environment variable or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier. We selected 'America/Los_Angeles' for 'PST/-8.0/no DST' instead in /fuggle/home/eleet/www.eleetwarez.net/docs/ndxz-studio/helper/time.php on line 12
