Joe says in his recap of presenting at the Cambridge Mini Maker Faire:

I demoed ACRIS at the Cambridge Science Festival’s Mini Maker FaireCharles and Shane were also there demoing their spectacular skills.


ACRIS at Cambridge Mini Maker Faire

ACRIS is a really neat LED controlling system developed by Joseph Colosimo, a student member of MITERS, the MIT making paradise. He will be displaying the device and components at Friday’s Cambridge Mini Maker Faire from 12-4pm.

Joseph had this to say about his project:

ACRIS is a high-power lighting system that reacts to its environment using high-power LED controllers and software that takes sensory input, like music, and generates beautiful output patterns. It’s also a generic framework that others can use for their own projects.

There’s more info over on Joseph’s site for ACRIS.

Admission to the Cambridge Mini Maker Faire is free. Come join us to meet great people and see amazing projects from noon to 4pm on Friday, April 20th at the Cambridge Rindge and Latin High School. The CMMF is sponsored by Artisan’s Asylum, and is part of the Cambridge Science Festival Carnival.
