Coding Physical Objects: An Interactive LED Art Piece

Jun 20, 2017 · Zürich, Switzerland

An insight into a fascinating project created by the beauty of mathematics and a passion for DIY. 

This talk will be given by Christian Walther, a software developer by trade, physicist by education, and seasoned tinkerer, who turns code into tangible objects, functional or decorative. He will elaborate on his vision and approach to developing an interactive LED art installation

Christian will demonstrate how his idea gradually ripened by writing code rather than hand-drawing the design. Arriving at its exact shape took months of programming, calculations, various testings, tweaking parameters and numerical optimizations. Throughout one and a half years of development a fascinating interactive object with irregularly shaped pixels arranged in an organic, yet mathematically precise flower-like pattern has emerged. It was realized using various digital tools such as laser cutters, and 3D printers. Always a work in progress, it displays colorful animations or useful information, remote-controllable from an internet-connected smartphone.

  • Pantalks - tech & non-tech talks @ Colab Zürich

    Pantalks, initiated by Panter employees in 2010, began as a small community Meetup where individuals looking to exchange knowledge, tech and non-tech, could connect and share their insights. Today, with over a thousand Meetup Members and more than 90 Pantalks hosted, the community has grown into a meaningful network. Once a month we host an intriguing talk with fresh from the field insights and engaging discussion over snacks and drinks— we'd love for you to join us! Shortlink to our website: www.pantalks.
