Log-periodic dipole array for 2–6GHz and AD8317

Some advances in antenna experimentation were made: We are now able to "listen" in an extended range of 1MHz–10GHz with the AD8317 and low-cost evaluation sets made in China. Also a first log-periodic dipole array was build tuned for 2-6GHz with 14 Elements and a...

Intermediate Summary March 2017

Many things happened in Feb. and March. We had three micro-residencies (Akitoshi Honda, Felicien Gougey and Robin Michel) and core team member Susanna Hertrich showed her work "Brighter than a thousand suns" (2016) at the TEI* 2017 Arts Track in Keio University Graduate School of...

Resident No. 2 – Félicien Goguey

This week, Félicien is working with us on wifi-sniffing and signal detection. He is a french designer based in Switzerland and currently a teaching assistant in MA Media Design at Geneva School of Art and Design (HEAD — Genève). He uses multiple skills to create...

Resident No. 1 – Akitoshi Honda

Our first collaborator in the series of micro-residencies will be Berlin-based artist Akitoshi Honda who will join us end of January 2017. Akitoshi is a great artist and skilled technologist who will work with us on prototypes for haptic interfaces that are inspired by historical hardware. More about...

Critical Media Lab

«micro-residencies» at the Critical Media Lab

In 2017 we will start a series of «micro-residencies» were we invite people from our network to join this project and work with us in Basel. So far, we have planned three short-term residencies for the first half of 2017. We have invited artists, technologists, designers and...

What if…

This research project is inspired by sensorial abilities found in certain animals – mostly weak electric fish. The photo essay «Interspecies» by Susanna Hertrich plays with the notion of humans to have animal senses. The image below shows a face with barbels known from various species of...

Sensorium exhibited

Sensorium of Animals is represented in the form of two posters at the exhibition "Human Upgrade".   14.10.2016 – 05.03.2017 DIALOGE 05: Human Upgrade « Sensorium of Animals » work in progress on show at dialogue exhibition of Susanna Hertrich and Hannes Wiedemann  Schader-Stiftung Galerie (Gallery at Schader Foundation) Goethestr. 1 64285 Darmstadt Germany further information (German only) ...

Testing the haptic evaluation kit

First test runs with the new Haptic Evaluation Kit from Precision Microdrives with an Arduino Uno R3 and TI DRV2605, a a so called haptic driver. It is a small IC-chip designed to provide extremely-flexible haptic control of ERM and LRA actuators and includes an extensive...
