Lazer



Lazer is an experimental game inspired by oldies such as Vectrex.
The goal is to immerse yourself in a minimalist world in which the player must avoid lasers.

Thymio



Thymio meets ECAL is a one week workshop.
We were asked to develop projects using 50 Thymio robots.
The task was making the Thymio(s) write a word.

Δ Groups

We all worked in groups.
My group: Lina Vozniuk-Berzhaner, Benjamin Botros and me.
The three of us decided to use sugar and funnel to write "THE".

Biosphere



Biosphere is a crazy research about how it is possible to grow a plant with colors emitted from four iPad.

When we touch one of the iPad the colors change.

Δ Colors explanations

The order of the colors in the iPads reproduce a 24 hours day.
Pink is totally absorbed by the chloroplast and is equivalent to the most luminous moment of the day, which is noon.
Green is not absorbed by the plant, it's like the night that is also useful to the plant for the Calvin cycle.
