Inside the Blue

Design for Intel

We live in an invisible ocean of waves, like 3G, wifi, sound, heat, brainwaves, and microwaves. Some call it the electromagnetic spectrum, we call it “The Blue”. We were hired to design a conceptual robot that lives in that ocean: Brain Coral. The Brain Coral is the simplest, and most versatile of all the creatures Inside The Blue. Designed to communicate with the other creatures, the Brain Coral also displays its own information using an Intel Galileo and LEDs. For the design of this creature, we roamed Maine beaches and collected shells and other sea life, and began building the physical design for what would become a digital platform for Makers. The coral is 3D printed and can be adapted for individual use. Learn how to make your own coral here: Brain Coral tutorial.
