We recently received an intriguing call from Puzzle Break, a Seattle-based company that specializes in building mysterious rooms. The types of mindbenders you’ve encountered in video games, except rendered in real life.

Last weekend’s Brainihack coding bender whet our appetites for what’s possible in the landscape of Neurotechnology, sending our imaginations into the far reaches of dystopian fantasies wherein objects (or people) can be levitated, then summoned, in the course of a single thought. This week, we had the opportunity to dig even deeper into next generation EEG headsets, virtual and augmented […]

The nighttime orchestra of insects. The meter of a grandfather clock. In order to rein the subtle beauty of these sounds into cohesive compositions, he realized he needed tools that didn’t exist… yet.

This week, ditch the remote and grab the popcorn with Vimeo Couch Mode and Leap Motion interaction – a whole new way to watch high-quality videos. Plus, a fast-paced speed racer that lives in your browser, magical fireflies, an arcade-style dubstep game, and an elegant wooden puzzle.

SKYLINE is a 10-day architecture showcase that stretches across a completely walkable 10 x 10 block grid in downtown LA – where spaces ranging from penthouses to historic banks to hotel lobbies host interactive installations that embody the cultural landscape of Los Angeles. Leap Motion was a natural fit for SKYLINE participant Behnaz Farahi, a […]
