Behind every scanner is a living breathing person, within whom XM flows.

Concept and Production

 

concepts at a glance

  • Archetype: Humanist (could also be Alchemist, Catalyst, or Listener) 

  • Steampunk heart embedded with Enlightened symbol

  • Robotic movements with servos for gears, pulleys, and gauges

  • Arteries and valves pumping "XM" bioluminescent fluid 

  • LED resonators programmed to light up based on portal status

  • Interactive Music via IR and Ultrasonic sensors

  • Sound recording throughout the event of "tunes" agents make

 

Fabrication

We have use of a full fabrication, machining,3D printing, and laser cutting shop compliments of agent Ineptitude. 

Materials

Mostly repurposed from prior robotics projects, jets, and other art installations. A working Bill of Materials for parts we already have and plan to acquire can be found here: https://goo.gl/iqerxp

programming

SMaRT Education will be providing the robotic controllers and software, while a team of programmers from four continents collaborates online. Check out one project complete already!

Concept: We give you The Luminescent Heart. The goal of the New Wave Enlightened is to bring to form the thoughts and feelings of the shapers. We seek to see and hear the will of the XM, as the heart of the Techthulu helps us bring these visions to life.

Size and movement: We have plans and materials for either a: 20' tall suspended art model installation or an 8’ tall x 7’ wide x 7' deep ground model mounted on a repurposed 747 part. Our steampunk heart with embedded Enlightened symbol will incorporate actuators and servos to simulate a heartbeat as plates around heart move in and out. Additional movement includes gear and pulley mechanisms, and gauges tuned to how "strong" the portal is.

Colors and Visuals: Pumps will move gallons of bioluminescent fluid through the arteries and veins of the art piece to simulate XM movement within. Over 30 yards of LED’s will be incorporated into the installation and programmed to be grey, green, or blue depending on the portal’s capture status. Eight resonators will be built into the installation with similar programming.

Music and Live Interaction: The back of the heart will incorporate a 3’ x 3’ circular instrument utilizing an "if distance is x then play y note" program using InfraRed and Ultrasonic sensors. Agents will literally be able to interact and “make” music by waving their scanners (or hands, or head, etc.) through the center ring in the heart. We are using 13 sensors to represent each of the 13 archetypes. Our sound engineer has made a pre-programmed soundboard with sound bites from the scanner that will be mounted nearby with a monitor. By pressing different button combinations they can create their own "Luminescent Heart Beats" to accompany their sensor movements and “make the music of the Ingress Tecthulhu”. Our sound engineer will record the music throughout the event and post it to our website at the conclusion of Magus Reawakens. 

Feasibility: Not only does our team have a Lore Master on hand to help guide our brainstorming and concept process, but we currently have a robotics company President, three mechanical engineers, a sound engineer, five programmers, two CAD designers/artists, and two Burning Man lead installation artists. Additionally, materials repurposed from many former installations means we have A LOT of great material already on hand. Perhaps the biggest factor in the feasibility of The Luminescent Heart is that one of our agents has a fully equipped machine shop and fabrication lab (see image above). 

Programming will be done in Palm Springs at the SMaRT Education SciTech Academy and collaboratively around the world. Their facility has the computers, software, servos, sensors, and controllers onsite and ready to use.
