Ars Electronica Festival 09 – Human Nature
What happened at this years Ars Electronica Festival. Well we saw a lot of robots, including Gemini the first clone robot coming from Japan and he was really life like as the author also walked around. At the Linz University the MIT media lab was this years featured university with some nice gadgets for rapid prototyping of industrial design and little electronics that interact between themselves regarding how you position them. But, the best part was this years theme for the Austrian national parade. It was Flood, as the ultimate flood from the bible where everything will be swept away. For that they made around 400 different animals that were strolling the whole day on Saturday around the city. And they outdid themselves on the fireworks again in the evening show. Oh almost forgot, the Gameboy music workshop and performance also rocked.
Lots of pictures on My Flickr account and a small preview below.
