Exhibitors 2018



Thaumachines - Technologies that induce wonder.

Over the last few years I have built various machines that have as common feature to do amazing things for those who look at them.

For the Maker Faire Rome 2017 I realized in my booth an exhibition of some of these machines, with the aim to divulge the beauty of Science and to stimulate visitors to explore in turn the same boundaries between Science, perception and Art that I have explored at the time.

Below is a list of the machines that I displayed, with an indication of the scientific areas related to them:

- Double pendulum (physics, chaos theory)
- Multipendulum (physics, visualization of harmony)
- Zoetrope (perception, persistence of vision)
- Vertical plotter (mathematics, physics, electronics, computing science)

This year I will propose an enhanced version of the exhibit, introducing higher interactivity and some new thaumachine.
