In the newest episode of BrainCraft, host Vanessa Hill explores some cool new concepts for glasses that may help blind people see again!
We are exploring new modalities of creative photography through robotics and long-exposure photography. Using a robotic arm, a light source is carried through precise movements in front of a camera. Photographic compositions are recorded as images of volumetric light. Robotic light “painting” can also be inverted: the camera is moved via the arm to create an image “painted” with environmental light. Finally, adding real-time sensor input to the moving arm and programming it to explore the physical space around objects can reveal immaterial fields like radio waves, magnetic fields, and heat flows.

I do not know if it’s worth so much work for this, but the truth is that it’s really cool, love it!
