Hackers Congress Paralelní Polis 2023

Step into the future and ancient past
10-01, 16:00–16:45 (Europe/Prague), Slévárna

In this talk, Scott will announce his newest Top Secret open source project as well as present demonstrations from two of his other core projects: Mandelbot Ecotech and AncientScan.

The presentation will feature tasty 3d printed vegan snacks made on the latest prototype, The SURFA2 (Scalable Universal Robotic Frame Assembly) as well as Scott's latest LiDAR scans made in recent trips to Egypt.

Mandelbot Ecotech focuses on developing ecologically sustainable machine design primitives that value self-sovereignty and communitarianism. The core design philosophy emphasizes symmetry, portability, scalability and modularity with inspiration from the elegance of natural systems. SURFA2 is a testament to the commitment to environmental impact reduction by utilizing compostable plant-based bioplastics, recycled materials and off-the-shelf components.

Ancientscan focuses on examining the lost technologies of the ancient world by documenting artifacts and archaeological sites through precision 3D scanning (LiDAR), spatial audio recording and spectral analysis. The main goal of the project is to reverse engineer accomplishments made in antiquity to better understand how to proceed in a future where fossil fuels have become obsolete.

Scott is an inventor, open-source technologist, self-taught engineer, vegan environmental activist, and founder of many projects in the realm of ecologically regenerative systems, horizontal organization, and experiential arts production. In addition to creating ecologically friendly technologies, he’s the Co-founder of the Evil Twin Booking agency representing and doing strategy for Pussy Riot, Boots Riley, Glenn Greenwald, Alex, and Allyson Grey, Vandana Shiva, and other public figures. He was the founder of the seminal 1990s DIY hardcore/punk label Bloodlink Records as well as the founder of the touring Lost Film Festival in the 2000s. He currently serves as a technical and strategic advisor for several decentralization tech projects.

His current projects include Mandelbot, Ecotech, Goostruder, Groucho Fractal, AncientScan, and Ptelepathetique.
