PechaKucha Presentation

Dark Matter, to a music theory space.

PRESENTED ON DEC 03, 2013
IN MEXICO CITY @ VOL 33

Jaime Lobato talks about human echolocation as a genuine, unexplored skill related to the location and the form of objects in space by the reflections of sound (echo and reverb). It involves self-produced body sounds for spatial information. It is an ability that humans possess, and use in daily life unconsciously and consciously in some specific situations, but always discreetly. Usually developed to surprising levels by visually impaired.

"As I'm often asked about how I find my ideas, I finally decided to write down my own vision of the creation process, which I called "The Peanut theory", because it talks about peanuts lost in space and colliding each others... Thanks to that beautiful theory, everything will become cristal clear to you, folks !" Fabien Vehlmann

Startups in Space, Again

BY LUCAS BREMOND
@ PECHAKUCHA NIGHT SPECIAL @ AUTODESK POP-UP ON NOV 08, 2015

Spacecraft developer at Axelspace in Tokyo, Lucas Bremond catches us up on the accomplishments of the space programs of past and present, reminding us that many of historical cosmic triumphs were achieved with less computing power then that of our smartphones. He then turns our imaginations to the future, proposing a new age of space exploration where the playing field has been levelled, the barrier of entry lowered, an exciting new era of new inexpensive tech in space, which we can all potentially participate, and for the benefit of all.
