Play City featured by the Play the Future exposition: Scenario City is a new concept. It’s a physical interactive facility where local data/information is being projected in layars and processes in combination with related image- and audible media. The public area and the activities in the city will be observed in bird’s eye view, simultaneously manipulated and researched. This enables the possibility to view and experience interactively through time and space, sharing information and ideas to be attached to the system.
Play City manifests a programm to manipulate the subject health, focused on a characteristic district in Eindhoven (Vaartbroek). The game-element of the project consists of being able to build with present objects from layars, like for instance schools, playgrounds, trees, shops, busstops, and so on. The professional visitor is made clear what the combination of geo-information, population data, health data acompanied by video, audio and image yields on experience, insight, but also what the interaction with data and media permits.
For this purpose Play City is the core, the first installation/facility that is developed for and in the CityLab. It is an open, creative and inspiring platform for innovation where organisations and individuals will be able to internationalize new technological possibilities in their cultures by committing creatives (artists, designers, architects, engineers,…).
During the two days lasting ElectroPixel festival the city of Nantes got spoiled with a new sensation. The citizens of Nantes could choose a scent on the internet that would be spread through town. A bike (MADbike) was able to produce bubble bells thanks to solar energy, the bubbles contained a scent that could be chosen on a Facebook page. The installation was a scoop in its current condition, after the prototype was designed and tested during the Dutch Design Week Eindhoven (Hacking the city).

The mobile installation traveled through Nantes on the 22nd and the 23rd of August, following this specific route: http://goo.gl/cDmiEu

The Atelierroute is an annual event recurring the 1st weekend of October which this year arises on the 5th and 6th. The participating artists open their workshop to the public from 11:00 am to 17:00 pm, so they can look around and meet the artist and his/her work informally. Subscription to the Atelierroute Eindhoven for artists is still possible. Up to September the route is available for download on the website of Atelierroute, and the free flyers will be available two weeks before the event begins. MAD is providing the website, the map, the flyers, the advertisement as well as a bit of communication.
On the 21st of August, Mad in collaboration with Kennisnet, provided a workshop for a group of teachers studying at the teacher training in Sittard. Thanks to the help of Frank van den Berg, the insistent participants were able to make the program run in no time. The light bulbs lit up and they eventually generated an ARDUINO in action… Congratulations!
The traditional yearly MADpicnic is Sunday 7 July!
The location is a wonderful natural environment called Paddenpoel in Genneper Parken Eindhoven.

MADlab and MADspace organize a micro maker fair to taste a bit of the future.
Maybe its a good idea to bring a real Maker Fair come alive in Eindhoven, so lets find out and start small.
What are we going to make?
3D printing, Sugru building, Arduino, Makey Makey.
Powered by Instructables we have a Sugru build night, our brand new 3D Felix Printer can be used to experiment, we have a number of Arduinos, Raspberry Pis and Makey Makey. Lets make fun of building things.
We have an extensive collection of stuff to build with, but if you have a specific idea or need, bring it on!
Oh, and we have a fresh collection of Lego and K’nex, together with 3D printed connectors from one system to another.
When and where?
Wednesday July 10, from 19:30 hours till midnight.
Venue MADlab, Vestdijk 280, 5611CZ Eindhoven.
The event is free to makers, not spectators. Please let us know if you plan to come, so we can anticipate on that. Either RSVP on Meetup or Facebook.
