The Sonic Kayak project has evolved from the Bicrophonic Research Institute (BRI), established by Kaffe Matthews and David Griffiths in 2014. Through ten years of international projects the BRI has developed the Sonic Bike whose music changes depending on where ...

Artificially evolved camouflage

As the egglab camouflage experiment continues, here are some recent examples after 40 or so generations.

It's workshop time again at Foam Kernow. We're running a Sonic Kayak development open hacklab with Kaffe Matthews (more on this soon) and a series of tanglebots workshops which will be the finale to the weavingcodes project.
