Making useless machines – Bryan Cera – TEDxUWMilwaukee.

How about a game of “Pung,” the name being a combination of Pong and Sung. It looks like Pong but the game is equipped with two microphones. Players raise and lower the paddles by raising and lowering the frequency of their voices. How about a robot that doesn’t perform but rather procrastinates, by pacing back and forth, checking the contents of the refrigerator, watching cats on an Internet monitor, and more. Cera teaches art at Cardinal Stritch University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Who says Milwaukee isn’t the center of the universe? I’d bet that Cera’s classes are even more fun than watching his useless machines in action. They’re not as useless as they look, art-wise. 18-minute video.
