Although I finished my metabolic machine research about two years ago, the journal paper that I co-authored on the topic was just published in IEEE Robotics and Automation Magazine this past month. Give it a read!
Here’s something I never expected to happen to me; I was recently the subject of an art exhibition in Vienna. Hazel Brill, the artist, wished to temporarily take me out of the context of blogging and into that of an art space, to encourage a philosophical reading of what I do.
I recently returned from a trip to India, where I was invited to present some of my research from Cornell’s Creative Machines Lab at the 2013 Techkriti Festival at IIT Kanpur. I was joined by astronauts, TV hosts, world-famous architects, and other students from around the world.
I recently completed an epic, once-in-a-lifetime cross-country bus trip from Ithaca, NY to San Francisco, CA. We stopped at six schools along the way to pick up other college students, and we led educational workshops for K-12 schools at each stop to teach students about various aspects of sustainability. The tour ended in San Francisco where I attended the GreenBuild Conference and Expo.
Cornell University Sustainable Design and the US Green Building Council have partnered up to organize a cross-country bus tour. The tour started at Cornell University and will end at the International GreenBuild Conference and Expo in San Francisco, California. Along the way, I, along with other CUSD members and college students from around the country will be teaching K-12 students about the importance of sustainable design.
After my first guest spot on the ZombieTech podcast back Spetember 2011, I’m back for more! In this episode I discussed 3D printing, the Cornell NYC Tech Campus, the PopShop, Blum Idea Labs, the every1Campaign, and much more! I also describe my tactics regarding the usage of bamboo to survive a Zombie Apocalypse.
Dave Jones, fellow Electrical Engineer and Youtuber, recently received a MakerBot Replicator. In this video, Dave delivers a thorough investigation of the machine and the MightyBoard electronics that I developed for it. Check it out for a close look at how the MakerBot ticks!
