Zoran, Amit and Paradiso, Joseph (2012): The FreeD: a handheld digital milling device for craft and fabrication. In: Adjunct Proceedings of the 2012 ACM Symposium on User Interface Software and Technology 2012. pp. 3-4.

We present an approach to combine digital fabrication and craft that is focused on a new fabrication experience. The FreeD is a hand-held, digitally controlled, milling device. It is guided and monitored by a computer while still preserving gestural freedom. The computer intervenes only when the milling bit approaches the 3D model, which was designed beforehand, either by slowing down the spindle's speed or by drawing back the shaft. The rest of the time it allows complete freedom, allowing the user to manipulate and shape the work in any creative way. We believe The FreeD will enable a designer to move in between the straight boundaries of established CAD systems and the free expression of handcraft.

Zoran, Amit, Coppiardi, Marco, Aguilera, Paula and Maes, Pattie (2009): Physical heart in a virtual body. In: Proceedings of ACM CHI 2009 Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems 2009. pp. 3523-3524.

In this video we present a special guitar that combines physical acoustic properties with virtual capabilities. A wooden resonator -- a unique, replaceable piece of wood that gives the guitar a unique acoustic sound, will embody the acoustical values. The acoustic signal created by this wooden heart will be digitally processed in a virtual sound box in order to create flexible sound design. The project shows that traditional values can be embedded into a digital object.
