Using a unique animation technique involving traditional animation cels and his iPhone, Marty Cooper (Alan Cooper's son) turns everyday life into an odd creature infested cartoon universe.

Typically I’ll take two to three weeks just to make sounds, so that would be messing around with the synths, putting them through pedals and speaker cabs, finding way-out things to do with them. At this point it’s just trying to make any sound until something happens, then I dive right in and start shaping it. It’s a bit like mining for gold – you know there’s something down there, you just have to keep looking. I enjoy getting lost pushing buttons without thinking about the outcome. It helps me detach, and that way I’m open to whatever happens.
All the best ideas come out of the process; they come out of the work itself. Things occur to you. If you’re sitting around trying to dream up a great art idea, you can sit there a long time before anything happens. But if you just get to work, something will occur to you and something else will occur to you and something else that you reject will push you in another direction.

What if we designed a new kind of “maker space” - a space that isn’t just for putting pieces together, but also for seeing and understanding a project’s behavior in powerful ways?

Seeing Spaces

Estimote Stickers are complementary to Estimote Beacons. Whereas beacons add a layer of contextual intelligence to static locations such as stores, museums and airports, stickers extend that context to the objects within those venues. Stickers contain accelerometer and temperature sensors and an optimized ARM processor with flash memory and Bluetooth Smart controller, all inside a significantly smaller and thinner form factor.

Stickers are truly designed to be placed on everyday objects. Simply attach a sticker to an item to turn it into a nearable - a smart, connected object that broadcasts data about its location, motion and temperature.”
