I can vaguely remember having lots of fun playing N many years ago. Yesterday I discovered that the team behind this game released a sequel titled N v2.0 about half a year ago. You can play it for free via their website.
The art installation is a work of Berlin designer Christopher Bauder (WHITEvoid) and consists of 50 motorized LED-rod triangles that form a massive dynamic GRID, spreading over 200 square meters. Live generated sound connects directly to light animations and triggers spatial movements. Every sound of music correlates with a visual impulse and spatial alteration. Music is composed by Robert Henke (Monolake) and supported by the local choir “L´Hostel Dieu”. Both audio and visual elements can be changed spontaneously during the live performance. It is every time a different show. Audio-visual combinations are created on the spot in response to reactions of spectators.
On Wednesay September 4th 2013, NASA astronaut Karen Nyberg and ESA’s Luca Parmitano used Canadarm2 to remove the Kounotori4 H-II Transfer Vehicle (HTV4) from the Earth-facing port of the Harmony and release it into space. Congratulations to the international team, including the CSA’s robotics group, on wrapping up another successful mission!
