The other day I got to catch up with my friend, and former Stanford TA, Ale Palandjoglou. You might recall me bragging on him when he won the Core 77 Design Award for Social Impact. Now he's working as an artist in residence at Instructables. He's one of the many brilliant folks there who are figuring out just what exactly we're supposed to do with the new capabilities that computer controlled making machines have brought us. Here's Ale with a REALLY big CNC machine. Really, really big.
Here are some laser cut records. You know, the kind you drop a needle on. I didn't get to take a listen, but I'm intrigued for sure!
Robot drums, because they can.
In the cube below, the black stuff is a soft elastomer, and the white stuff is hard plastic. Again, because they can.
Oh and did I mention that they all work on a Pier 9 in downtown San Francisco? If there are cooler places to have your workshop, I'd like to hear about them!
