From their press release: “The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) announces its Art + Technology initiative, a new program and lab space that promotes innovative ideas and fosters collaboration across disciplines and industries. The endeavor will award grants, in-kind support, and facilities at the museum to help artists take purposeful risks in order to explore new boundaries in both art and science. The Art + Technology Lab and artist projects at LACMA are made possible by Accenture, DAQRI, and NVIDIA, with additional support from Google and SpaceX. A grant from the Los Angeles County Productivity Investment Fund is supporting the public lab at the museum to house the initiative, including artist demos and public programming.

Michael Newman’s Super Skee Ball Shooter at The Tech Museum

Now featured at The Tech Museum in Silicon Valley, instructor Michael Newman’s Super Skee Ball Shooter uses technology to put a new twist on an old game. The nostalgia of arcades and state fairs is given a high tech yet elegant upgrade, allowing the player to control the  firing of the skee balls all with simple hand gestures. 

Michael’s Super Skee Ball Shooter joins huge cardboard robot arms and puppets that swing and jump on a trampoline, conductive play-dough that lights up, twirls around, and buzzes, and simple circuits & motors combined with everyday objects like markers, clocks, and scrub brushes to make robots that draw or clean the floor as just some of the wildly inventive projects that were selected from the 2012 Maker Faire, now featured @ The Tech Museum through August 17.
