Antonio Altomare e Giorgia Nardulli tentano di spiegare come il design, inteso come arte, aiuti l’uomo a scoprire quello che da solo non vede, perché distratto. In questo caso la luna, che per mezzo della luce (metafora del design) viene rivelata, rappresenta ciò che l’uomo non riesce a vedere. Il design esemplifica la vita dell’uomo, nelle sue cose primarie; nulla di sofisticato, ma funzionale, che aiuta a guardare più in là, oltre il dito.

Prêt -à- Monter rises from the idea of one moment and die with the fancy of the next but, if you love it, you can turn it in a longer term experience.

MS1 is an Arduino-based low cost automatic swarmbot mine detection system. It is divided into small operating groups, where every robot is given pre-assigned coordinates to scan a specific zone. The units are able to self-organize and partition the given area into a definite number of scanning sectors, which correspond to analysis periods lasting 2 to 4 weeks. Thanks to the data gathered, it will be possible to trace secure crossroads in the mined areas, making the whole demining process a lot quicker and safer. The current version is targeted for southern Lebanon.
