ITA / CAVA DE’ TIRRENI / 10 -12 Dec 2013 / eMOTIONAL design workshop / Mediterranean FabLab + Co-de-iT

Posted in Workshops / Events - Workshops by * FORMAKERS

eMOTIONAL Design workshop – Cava De’ Tirreni, Salerno – Italy In recent years we are witnessing, thanks to the progressive reduction of costs, the spread of so-called “BCI” laptops (Brain Computer Interfaces), the devices allow the reading of brain waves through sensors placed on the scalp. The Emotiv EPOC, along with the application EmoLens, is capable of reading in real time and interpret different types of emotions according to the sensations experienced by the user. The workshop will focus on the acquisition, recording and manipulation of such data / emotions through Grasshopper (plug-in for Rhinoceros 3d) and their use for controlling the parameters of the design of a particular object will then become, being customizzanti with the specific user’s emotions , appeals and tactile memory of specific experiences. italiano: Negli ultimi anni stiamo assistendo, grazie alla progressiva riduzione dei costi, alla diffusione delle cosiddette “BCI“ portatili (Brain Computer Interfaces), dispositivi permettono la lettura delle onde celebrali attraverso sensori posizionati sullo scalpo.

La Emotiv EPOC, insieme allapplicazione EmoLens, è capace di leggere in tempo reale ed interpretare differenti tipologie di emozioni in base alle sensazioni provate dallutente. Il workshop verterà sulla acquisizione, registrazione e manipolazione di tali dati/emozioni tramite Grasshopper ( plug-in di Rhinoceros 3d ) e il loro utilizzo per controllare i parametri del design di specifici oggetti che diventeranno quindi, essendo customizzanti con le specifiche emozioni dellutente, istanze e memoria tattile di precise esperienze. Nb: questo workshop richiede una conoscenza base di Grasshopper..
