Electronic “creatures”

by Ralf Schreiber and Christian Faubel.

People are used to anthropomorphize the world around them and give human attributes to technical artefacts. It is fascinating to watch or even “communicate” with “life like” machines. The concept builds on the simplest way to create and build “life like” machines or robots, by the use of analogue oscillator circuits. Oscillations can be fed-back. As a result simple interactions happen and the behaviour of simple neuronal networks can be simulated. In this workshop you can build your own simple “life like” machine, which will generate the smallest movements or various tiny sound patterns that allude to birds or insect sounds. Prior knowledge of electronics is not required!
