Design Robotics Group featured in reports from Smartgeometry 2012May 19, 2012
The Design Robotics Group has been prominently featured in the reports from Smartgeometry 2012 at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, New York. The group was selected to lead a cluster on Ceramics 2.0, an outgrowth of research from the course Material Processes and Systems: CeramicsLAB.
The theme of this year's conference was "Material Intensities -Simulation, Energy, Environment," and its first day was structured as workshop clusters to promote collaboration across multiple disciplines, rather than one-directional learning. One of the "material research" clusters, Ceramics 2.0 demonstrated the fabrication of custom bricks with a robot. See a great video of the work in action on Archinect, a full slideshow in the Huffington Post, and more photos from all three days on Graphic Speak.
The DRG's participation in the conference was sponsored by ASCER Tile of Spain.
