Everyone is welcome to attend. Curiosity is the only pre-requisite. Dorkbot-MTL is a FREE event.

PROGRAM:

Inter_cept (or My Idea of Fun)
Project by Lucie Bélanger, Philip Viel & Elie Zananiri

“Intr_cept (or My Idea of Fun)” is a responsive environment where the participant can play ball with a virtual being. While the ball is being thrown towards the wall, its position is determined in real-time and the character moves according to that position. When the ball hits the wall, the projection gives the impression that the virtual being hits it back. The installation brings the participant to instantiate a physical dialog with a virtual being.

Circuit Bending for Dummies
Presentation by Evans Simard

What is Circuit Bending?
The term circuit bending refers to the act of modifying the circuitry of battery-powered children’s toys to create strange, new, and unintended sounds for creative purposes. This re-appropriation of objects of a digital childhood is quickly growing in popularity as it offers an affordable, culturally referenced path into the creation of electronic music. Instead of merely watching a person’s face glowing in the screen of a laptop, the audience can watch performers wrangle squelches, bleeps, groans, and blips out of everyday childhood toys. This is fun to watch, and fun to do.

Secret Life of Machines by Tim Hunkin
Screening presented by Peter Flemming

Peter Flemming will present an episode of this very DORK-bot relevant late 80's BBC television series. In it, Tim Hunkin literally deconstructs and explains the workings and history of various machines such as The Radio, The Electric Light Bulb, The Telephone. All done in a wonderfully quirky, low tech charming way. This week's episode a surprise, but they are all very, very good. "
