Some great news: Yulia’s series of drawing entitled Mind Maps, drawn using RedGreenBrain, will be shown in a curated exhibit by the MicroClimate Collective at Artists Television Access (Valencia & 21st, San Francisco, CA). The theme is A.D.D. (Attention Deficit Disorder), and the exhibit starts September 7th, and will run for one month. More details to be posted soon!

Taking Joel’s advice and logging my woes on crutches. In week 3 after reconstructive knee surgery, in an immobilizer (limited 0-30 degrees flexion) and touch down flat foot (no weight bearing).
1.) It’s really hard to open doors. Especially heavy ones, and especially ones I have to unlock with a key. Why don’t public bathroom doors have those nifty handicap buttons?
2.) The armpit thing is really annoying…we’re not supposed to put weight on them, but they are there, and when you do rest on them while standing around, they really hurt!
3.) Thought using forearm crutches would be so much better. But, for tasks that require both hands when standing (like brushing and flossing teeth) it would get tricky. I need that high crutch to rest my armpits on for two-handed tasks :/
4.) There’s no easy way to get into the front seat of a sedan and put your crutches in the back seat of the car.
5.) Hills, inclines and high steps. Blegh.
6.) “Walking” around is so tiring. Seemingly short distances take forever to traverse. I better have nicely toned biceps after this ordeal!

Other cool things I’ve been introduced to recently, by my friend Yulia (who also has an amazing portfolio).
HoneyBee Robotics and Liz Diller from DS+R architecture firm, made a hole-drilling robot that traverses art museum walls and wreaks havoc.

This robot moves according to your attention and meditation states. It uses Neurosky’s Mindset, two large Buehler motors, a linear actuator, BlueSMiRF and an Arduino Mega 2560. Users can try to influence their brainstate by a choice of songs, some with embedded alpha and theta frequencies…
