Over a period of a few weeks I trained my Siamese fighting fish (betta splendens) José to jump out the water and get food off my finger. He also learnt to follow my hand as I moved it around the outside of his tank. Inspired by these interactions, the Abovemarine is a vehicle that enables José, or any other fish to roam on the land freely. This small freedom allows him to Interact with other species including humans and small animals. José is able to successfully navigate around a room, as he swims backwards (stopping the Abovemarine) before hitting obstacles.

The Abovemarine is not fish freedom. It is not a product and it is not for fish to live in (and they don’t). José and the Abovemarine engage our interest in the beauty and intelligence of these creatures. We are encouraged to ask questions that challenge our preconceived notions about fish and other living creatures. “Does the fish have intention?”, “Does the fish understand what he is doing?”, “Do fish have memories?”.

The Abovemarine moves using Omni Wheels, allowing it to travel in any direction without first having to turn. Without this mechanism, the tank would get stuck in a feedback loop, spinning in a circle every time José, who moves relative to the tank, swam left or right. José’s movement is tracked using a camera and computer vision.

While the Abovemarine was developed independently, I have since been made
aware of Ken Rinaldo’s Augmented Fish Reality (2004) and Garnet Hertz’s Cockroach Controlled Mobile Robot (2004).

NEXCOサービスセンター?←存在しなよ!

あー、インチキだろうな〜

今、ここから割引の電話案内があった。会社は神戸(078-382-3893)。

法人向けのETC割引カードを発行しているとのこと。
ここは民間の組合でNEXCOの下請けをしていると。

あーあーあー、「NEXCOサービスセンター」なんて組合も組織も存在しないんだよ〜!

今、NEXCO西日本と東日本に確認したわ〜
それに相手は「NEXCOのホームページを見たらうちのカード案内が載っています」って・・・

どのNEXCOのホームページを見てもトップにそんなの載っていないわい!

あの〜、NEXCOは地域で会社が分かれているんだけど〜、どのNEXCOのホームページ?

って聞いても、NEXCOです〜って!www

自爆!

NEXCOには確かに、組合とか割引とかあるけど、クレカと一体型とかで、20000円以上だとお得とか言うのは存在しないんだよ。

みなさん、企業の人たち、気をつけようね。

日本国民「 #朝日新聞 などのマスコミ報道権力の監視は日本国民の大事な役割だ。どこの誰であろうと、関係ない。何があろうと、今後も変わりない。今まで、まったくもって、不十分だった。」

【朝日新聞記者】小森敦司「権力の監視は報道機関の大事な役割だ。どこの社であろうと、関係ない。何があろうと、今後も変わりない」

記者なら、紙面で語るべき。TwitterのProfileでわざわざ社名を名乗るのは、そのほうが「影響力」が高いからと見られても仕方ない。
@shinjihi そもそも、権力を監視するのと、記事を捏造するのは無関係である。記事を捏造する朝日新聞に権力を監視する資格も、能力も無い。それも理解できない朝日新聞の知能指数はかなり低いと言わざるを得ない。

TOUCH THE SKY from tim hahne on Vimeo.

A STEREOSCREEN PRODUCTION

This is a short, but very intimate portrait of Alex Zanardi, the former Formula 1 driver and winner of the American Champ Car Series. Alex was already a star, when he had his almost fatal accident at the Lausitzring in Germany. He lost his legs, but not his attitude. Alex Zanardi came back and did the impossible: He won races in the World Touring Car Championship, two gold medals at the Paralympics in London 2012 and just recently added two more hand bike world titles!

It was a unique experience to spend a day with a true hero at his house in Padua, talking about his life and joining him for a training session with his hand bike. His last words in our film describe him best. But see for yourself…
