During the next two weeks we will work on flying objects. We are approaching the task both, as an object of sko lightweight structure optimization as well as a programmable textile study, concerning the fabric parts of the kite. Lately we came across the studies of Dr. Bell who experimented with flying objects by combining…
My new subject of interest is a pool starting block for swimming. It is to be elaborated how the shape, look and structure of the block could be varied by the use of SKO concepts. This shows the result of my first 2D calculations, reducing the block to a minimum of what a common block looks like at the moment.
This is only the beginning of this Experimentation, things seem to be proceeding as planned.
