Monsters and Hackers

Monsters and Hackers refers to a DIY movement taking place in software and hardware hacking and theory. In Make magazine you can see home-made electronic gadgets and new toys by circuit benders of all genders and ages. A Sketching in Hardware community has gathered to define the arena of ubiquitous computing and ambiance design. An example of theoretical work in this area is Bruce Damer’s current project, the Evogrid, ‘…a worldwide, cross-disciplinary effort to create an abstract simulation of the chemical origins of life on Earth’. And so, the digital dialogue encompasses the territory of electronic games as well as the origins of life.
