Jason Kelly Johnson from Firefly Experiments and Future Cities Lab in San Francisco will discuss and demonstrate Firefly and show recent projects produced by his lab. Firefly is a new set of comprehensive software tools dedicated to bridging the gap between Grasshopper (a free plug-in for Rhino), the Arduino micro-controller, the internet and beyond. It allows near real-time data flow between the 3D digital and physical worlds, and will read/write data to/from internet feeds, remote sensors, connect with machine vision protocols, and more.
Jason Kelly Johnson is the co-developer of Firefly and is a founding partner of Future Cities Lab in San Francisco. He is also an Assistant Professor of Architecture and Interaction at CCA and core tutor of the Architectural Association (AA) Biodynamic Structures summer program held each year in San Francisco.
