Lunchtime Talk: Nano Simbox at Pervasive Media Studio, Watershed (Bristol, England)

March 6, 2015 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Studio resident Becky Sage will join us to introduce Interactive Scientific’s latest experiment in making the nano-world of particles and forces not just visible, but interactive and influenceable by your own energetic fields.

Nano Simbox is a new development from the team behind danceroom Spectroscopy (dS) that can recognise your hands as they move in front of a laptop or desktop computer, and visualise them in real time interacting with a soup of molecules (the image above is showing the hydrogen and oxygen particles found in H20), allowing you to manipulate them in real time and in doing so learn about the physics at play in this tiny universe.

This evolution of the work that started with danceroom Spectroscopy is designed to bring the epic experience of dS, which tends to be shown in massive environments with troupes of dancers, into the domestic or educational scale, increasing access and direct experience of this exciting project fusing art with scientific enquiry.
