Cyber leaves

"Are these leaves?", by seeing this picture, you could hardly believe it....
But in this case you are totally wrong!
This structure is our new prototype which enables to inform a digital model through values coming from a feedback-loop of interaction between the wind (the agent) and the phsical model. The meas flex sensors that represent artificial leaves send electic signals to an Arduino Diecimila Board to an arduino-processingsoftware, that transform the given signals in values and finally send to grasshopper,which is able to interpretat them.

The currently used setup consist of an Arduino Diecimila and a 4x4 matrix of those meas sensors! Because the used Arudino can not handel that much inputs, we are also using multiplex chips to enable the use of the total of 16 sensors!

Work is still in progress! Stay tuned!

INTERACTIVE STEM Cybernetic diagram

This diagram represent the cybernetic system of the STEM v3.0.

C5 reaches level 6

After 1 day of level 5 the tedpoles have reached level 6,3-4 days before the normal time of morphing. The STEM Incubator cell 5 seems working perfectly.

C5 tedpoles reach STEP 5 of Morphing

After 2 days of high solar radiation and ideal water temperature the c5 teadpoles reach level 5 of morphing....5-6 days less then the usual time of transformation. The tedpoles in the B4 and D4 are still at level 3.......

Stem Cloud-C5 cell-tedpole growth

The optimisation of environmental agents like water temperature,nutrients and solar radiation increases the ted pole grow speed
The first image shows the cell c5 with the best environmental conditions.The tedpoles have the legs completely developed and reach level 4
On the other hand the second image shows the evolution step of B4 cell with normal pond enviromental parameters.The tedpolea are still at level 2.All the tedpoles in the Stem Incubator have the same D
ays life.
