We had a great time at the Paris Makerfaire!
We had the joy to meet Markus Örngren who came with is InMoov Robyn from Sweden.
Alessandro Didonna from Italy, who brought his InMoov as well, along with demonstrations using the Leap motion straight into MyRobotLab.
Bram and Richard of Wevolver brought also their InMoov and Kevin Watters from the USA helped them to set the Oculus rift into their script of MyRobotLab.
We also had the presence of students of the University Imerir with their printed InMoov Charlie.
We had great talks and ideas with all the Makers!!
Alessandro’s computer was stolen a short time after this picture was done.
Alessandro’s computer is still on the table
Unfortunatly, we had a Macbook Pro stolen, although we were vigilant.
It was Alessandro’s computer, he had just bought it, and had worked hard on MyRobotLab to update all dependencies so everyone could use the software on their Mac. Alessandro has been helping a lot of persons, since two years, through the shoutbox of MyRobotLab.
During those two years, he has been helping to implement Leap Motion, Kinematic, and Kinect detection into MyRobotLab. Also, thanks to him, our InMoov can do face tracking and object tracking straight out of the box.
I feel very bad about this, and if I had the money, I would pay for his computer straight away.
I am setting this donation link to call for your support, Alessandro is a student and this computer meant a lot to him.
Thanks to this fantastic crowdfunding concept, I’m sure, if every hearted Maker helps and DONATE just a little, we will raise enough for to get him back what has been stolen.
I wanted to make pictures using InMoov into symbolisms treated with a harsh lighting.
Before December, Yethy proposed to do a photo session in my workshop with whatever moods and feelings we had. Thanks to him.
Because InMoov is a Art project, I had to place him into such environment that it finds it’s purpose, it’s goal, away from the events, sounds and Faires to which I have been going since I started it. Many times during those events, people ask me, so what can this robot do? Sometimes, I’m tempted to reply; it does nothing it’s a sculpture.
I’m used to work in photographic environment with my work, but it is different when you do something for yourself, you can really interact with the forms and the graphism of details. It was a while that I had these two pictures in mind among others.
The high level of contrast dissimulates the face of the baby, just like InMoov seems to come out from the darkness. The color of the baby skin takes all it’s sensitivity and becomes like a painting in this two tones environment.
Many years ago I had sculpted this human skull and casted it to make a few reproductions. It was obvious to me to use it with InMoov in this session, because the message is rich of interpretations.
