Paper tower design
This challenge was very hard because we could only use one piece of paper and 12’’ of masking tape. The paper challenge was a challenge where we had to make a paper tower with paper and tape on the table of your group. Our tower was originally 13’’ but we then thought of the idea of cutting thinner strips and taping them one by one. Then by the end of our project our tower was 27’’ high.Next time if we had the second chance I would make my tower thinner so that I could stack more on top of each other. I think we could have done a little better but I think our idea was creative and we did a good job working together as a team. I think this project was very fun and we should do more activities like this. I learned that it is easier to problem solve with a group.
The story of two strange characters exploring a capricious and seemingly infinite machine. The elder, Proog, acts as a tour-guide and protector, happily showing off the sights and dangers of the machine to his initially curious but increasingly skeptical protege Emo. As their journey unfolds we discover signs that the machine is not all Proog thinks it is, and his guiding takes on a more desperate aspect.
Elephants Dream is a story about communication and fiction, made purposefully open-ended as the world’s first 3D “Open movie”. The film itself is released under the Creative Commons license, along with the entirety of the production files used to make it (roughly 7 Gigabytes of data). The software used to make the movie is the free/open source animation suite blender along with other open source software, thus allowing the movie to be remade, remixed and re-purposed with only a computer and the data on the DVD or download.
This movie was created in Blender, an open source 3-D animation software, through volunteers at the Blender Foundation. You can get the software at: http://www.blender.org
