自制新车间:荧光衣 | XinCheJian DIY: Fluorescent dance cloth

November 9th, 2016 § 0 comments § permalink

自制新车间 | XinCheJian DIY XinCheJian DIY is a platform to show XinCheJian members’ projects. At the same time, people that’s interested can buy DIY kits or projects directly through this platform at a reasonable price. We guarentee that this is not a platform that accepts all the products. All the projects must be coming from XinCheJian members! 本周推荐:荧光舞道具服 | This week recommendation: Fluorescent dance cloth dancee Electronic-dancing-cloths: Cloths that have lights shining with rhythm . They can create an amazing atmosphere, and help dancers to do what will never be done without the help of the lights How did this project happen: This project comes from a XinCheJian high school memebr. It first occured to him to design this when he saw a cool dance on a school event. After he designed it, the dance club adopted it to the dance, and successfully used for a lot more school events. Materials: Clothes , trousers ,batteries , Arduino and hot glue gun, ELlight string : 5m*2 , 2m*1(freefor colors), aset of driver and wire, 12Vbattery box*3(forfree , you can use the 8*1.5V battery which is on the driver if you don’t wantto do any operations on the driver , but 8 batteries will make the clothesheavy), relay*1 dance2 Way to DIY: First , use glue gun to stick the light string onto the clothes as you like . Make sure that you stick the light string as the shape of muscle to make the dance more attractive . You can get more light strings in order to change your clothes’ colors you like . dance3 Then , put the relay in to the circuit . you can get the information about the relay on this website It is just a simple example. And the material we give is only enough to have one combination of colors so you only need one relay. If you’re interest in making or purchasing this, you can scan QR code below to find out more info. danceqr]]>

Project Spotlight: Hover Pen/Hover Train

November 8th, 2016 § 0 comments § permalink

Ivan suspends 100g with YCBO levitation[/caption] For the past two months, Sean Purser-Haskell and Ivan Tchekashkin have been developing practical demos to showcase superconductor technology. Using YBCO (Yttrium Barium Copper Oxide) cooled by liquid nitrogen to -196 degrees Celsius, they’re able to levitate magnetic materials. They’ve applied this special property to create what they call the “Hover Pen” – a white-board with a marker that writes on its own; and the “Hover Train” – a scale model transit system that suspends superconductor-enabled train cars with a magnetic rail. [caption id="attachment_8078" align="alignnone" width="454"]hoverpenteam From left to right: Maciej Dudek, Danny Kuo, Ivan Tchekashkin, Sean Purser-Haskell[/caption] At last Wednesday’s open house the team demonstrated the “Hover Pen” to a mesmerized crowd. hoverpenytscreenshot Although it’s easy to use YBCO to levitate small magnets in place – a simple physics demonstration – scaling this property is another story. You quickly encounter problems when asked to achieve a certain level of control, or to “levitate heavy things.” The duo have had to rely on more than just past education and work experience; they’ve had to consider plenty of electromagnetic theory and have frequently risked their fingers playing with magnets and liquid nitrogen. Although they’ve focused most of their time on issues with superconductor technology, they recognize that putting together the whole system required a large base of knowledge – most gained from past projects at Xinchejian. And without the contributions of Maciej Dudek and Danny Kuo, the demos wouldn’t have their clean form or peripheral functions. Their demos were showcased by a superconductor manufacturer at the China International Industry Fair this past week. Stop by Xinchejian and take a look at the (almost) finished products!]]>

Project Spotlight: Monuments for Progress

October 15th, 2016 § 0 comments § permalink

Over a period of six months, architect/researcher Cédric Van Parys travelled to all the different corners of Shanghai, seeking the architectural landmarks that gloriously represent Shanghai’s breakneck progress since the early 1990’s. These urban centerpieces were located on top of the skyscrapers at the gravitational centerpoints of Shanghai’s rapidly expanding and merging districts. Climbing to the top of the numerous surrounding skyscrapers, he recorded (photographed and filmed) the crowns of each of these architectural landmarks. Working from Xinchejian, he has reproduced the landmarks into a series of associated prototypes. These 3D-printed physical scale models represent a radically different aesthetic perspective on Shanghai’s progress of the last decades. A first selection of the Monuments for Progress will be on show as part of the exhibition: Grain God’s Narrative at the Swatch Art Peace Hotel on the Bund – one of the city pavilions of the Shanghai Art Biennale.
