23 06 2008

Something I wasn’t expecting to find on Imin Matsuri… gadgets and technology!

In this post… gadgets and technology (DUH)…
For those who are waiting for cosplayers, I already finished the selection… only need to prepare the pics so I can post them. I think there’ll be 2 or 3 topics, so wait just a little bit more! 😉

Those who have more info on this post… contacts, robot names, related content about the pics, leave a comment! Specially those involved with the projects!

People from Brazillian Team of Robotics was there, and they brought several robots to show. Pitty I couldn’t watch the presentations, and stay there to “play” a little bit more, but it seemed very interesting.

While I was taking the pics, a mini RC helicopter was flying over my head… awesome! And I thought I would only see stuff like that on developed countries… maybe I’m right! 😛

Meanwhile, kids playing Nintendo Wii. I guess it was made available by the event staff. Long line of kids sitting on chairs.

If I had the time, I’d join the line. Oldest kid on the line. 😛

While I was looking the robots, heard some drum sounds… wondered if there was some stand with someone playing drums, lost in the middle of the event.
Then I found these 2 students from FEI (big tech University in Brazil)… Air Drumming?

They were showing their project, really interesting stuff. Using “drumsticks” with infrared LEDs, a mounted cam to capture the movement (similar to the WiiMote, but backwards), and pedals that uses radio transmition, they made a very realistic sounding Air Drum.
Recently got first place on a contest that awarded the best projects.

Congratulations to them and congratulations for the folks from Brazillian Team of Robotics!
Bringing some tecnologic innovation and fighting to make and show different stuff in a country that practically doesn’t give much support to the area. Gotta have patience and guts for that!

Now I’ll rush to write the other posts, and try to make another one today…

Got here now, kinda lost? Don’t fret. Here’s a guide to the matsuri posts:
1. Event on Friday.
2. Lots of pics on Sunday.
3. Gadgets and technology on the event.
4. People working, cosplaying and making presentations.
5. Another one with cosplayers.
6. And closing the series, last post with cosplayers too.
