RiSE: The Amazing Climbing Robot
"Rise is a small six-legged robot that climbs vertical terrain such as walls, trees and fences. Rise's feet have claws, micro-claws or sticky material, depending on the climbing surface.

"AntiVJ has been working on a new format for French retro-futurist electronic producers Principles of Geometry. Using stereoscopy (technology used in IMAX cinemas to watch visuals with 3D glasses) they produced a 50min long real-time journey through space. An exciting experience and a real visual counterpart to the band's space/epic soundtrack. Obviously you can't see the 3D effect on a regular computer screen, but we're touring with a special screen, so come and see the show to experience the Depth of 3D stereoscopic visuals."
"UrbanTick- a blog written just a few desks away from where we sit - is looking into the way a city lives and breathes. Part of the work is based on the visualisation of GPS tracks, so linking in with another project here at CASA, Richard Milton has written a script to import GPS tracks directly into 3D Studio Max. The script imports a gpx. file and creates a spline for the path, a marker object and time frames for each point...".read moredigital urban
