What's new for 2012?
Betascape, now in its 3rd year, is a weekend-long exploratorium for curious artists and technologists who really like to work at the intersection of art and technology. Attendees will participate in two days of inspiring lectures and lots of hands-on learning and creating.
The theme is “Tools & Technologies Bringing Down Barriers to Creating” with specific focuses on Digital Fabrication (3D printing), Data Visualization, and Physical Computing. Experts from across the East Coast will share their stories and expertise including:
- Nathalie Miebach - an artists who visualizes data collected from nature through sculpture (MA)
- Hod Lipson - a robotics engineer, Director of Cornell University's Creative Machines Lab, and creator of Fab@Home (NY)
- Marco Perry - an industrial designer and inventor of DIWire, an open source CNC wire bender (NY)

Go from 0 to Makerbotting in one weekend or dive in deep with Arthur Young-Spivey, VP of Design and Engineering at Tru-ID and Jan Baum of the Towson University ObjectLab.
