Grand prize, First prize, and 23 Finalist works were selected from the entries.

The Grand prize  went to a work titled Kinematics Dress by nervous system, a design studio in the U.S.  It is a dress 3D printeded as a single folded piece and requires no assembly. The First prize was won by a five-axis CNC machine named Making Gestures: A personal Design and Fabrication system by Diego Pinochet in Chile. The machine can produce designs and works in real-time based on the user's body movements.

 

Grand Prize

Kinematics DressBy nervous system (United States)
Category:Products


Composed of thousands of unique interlocking components, each dress is 3D printed as a single folded piece and requires no assembly. The Kinematics Dress represents a new approach to manufacturing which tightly integrates design, simulation, and digital fabrication to create complex, customized products.

 

First Prize

Making Gestures: A personal Design and Fabrication system
By Diego Pinochet
Category:Machine 

‘Making Gestures: a personal fabrication and deign system' is proposed to explore real-time interaction between mind, body, and tools by using body gestures and imbuing fabrication machines with artificial intelligence. It's A 5-axis CNC machine developed and programmed using machine learning algorithms, in order to learn and adapt to the uniqueness of the user. 'Making Gestures' is a cybernetic system that allows to design and make in real time, adapting 'as you go'.
