Hi-low tech

Lenta ripresa post estate. 

Ho appena scoperto lo High-Low Tech, un istituto del MIT Media Lab. Ecco la sua dichiarazione di intenti, dalla home page: "High-Low Tech, a research group at the MIT Media Lab, integrates high and low technological materials, processes, and cultures. Our primary aim is to engage diverse audiences in designing and building their own technologies by situating computation in new cultural and material contexts, and by developing tools that democratize engineering. We believe that the future of technology will be largely determined by end-users who will design, build, and hack their own devices, and our goal is to inspire, shape, support, and study these communities. To this end, we explore the intersection of computation, physical materials, manufacturing processes, traditional crafts, and design." Da sottoscrivere parole per parola. 
Ecco il resoconto di un workshop tenuto presso il Tinkering Studio dell'Exploratorium di S.Francisco, un luogo che offre senza riserve ispirazione per attività creative.
