Stockholm Chamber of Commerce donated Quirkbot kits to a list of schools in Sweden and as part of the delivery we would give a series of workshops with members from the organization, educators and students. It was interesting to notice that the most successful activity - that managed to engage people across all the very different groups - was the robot race.
Joe Coppard invited my friend Paulo Barcelos and me to give a lecture about techniques and tools for rapid prototyping to another class at Berghs School of Communication. This time we updated the content and tools to focus even more on how to integrate and hack new technologies introduced into students creative workflow.
While I was back home in Brazil for a while I did a one month residency at O Parque, a creative hub, coworking space and studio. There, I interacted with many creative professionals from street artists to local brands on a daily basis, experimenting and understanding how people would see and interact with the tools and approach to technology I was proposing.
