My vision of a better world needs rapid prototyping and automation technology at a point where it is reasonable for an average educated person use. Being able to try out ideas without going broke is the key to innovation in the field of Design. An additional feature to be integrated into this research effort is tapping into waste streams to harvest raw material for making new prototypes.
These ideas go hand-in-hand with furthering collaboration between Artists and Engineers. While working with such groups at Hakkavélin and Lorna Lab at Útgerin, this has become readily apparent. We have successfully produced multiple interactive art installations that involve science and technology through the hard work of the Hönnun 2011 class.
