Fun Fact: The USB consortium specified a 'Magic Carpet Simulation Device" as a HID device type.
Hello there. My name is Oleksandr (or "Sasha"), I recently started discovering the Fediverse.
I am a medical doctor by education, currently working on a PhD project in molecular medicine in Austria. I work half wet lab (cell and molecular biology) and half dry lab (bioinformatics, omics data analysis); my research focus is chronic liver diseases.
Outside work, I enjoy learning something new about computers and reading about space research.
Happy to be here & connect with you.
i'm leon, human being from planet earth, currently located in berlin.
i like to make music and create strange visuals with obsolete machines.
i consider myself as anarchist, antifascist and anticapitalist.
looking forward to share ideas with and get inspired by this community.

Time for a 'lil #introduction. My name is Silvio, I'm Italian but I live in the Netherlands. In the past I researched artistic "post-digital" publishing, I wrote about the entrepreneurial ideology in relation to precarity, and did a lot of other stuff such as graphic design, web development, installations, net art, zines, weird tools, videoclips… I'm starting to suspect that consistency is not among my core skills
Right now I'm mostly busy documenting and understanding a sense of disillusionment that seems to permeate the design field.
Currently, I'm an assistant professor in design theory and criticism at the Center for Other Worlds in Lisbon (https://otherworlds.pt/) and I'm part of varia.zone, a lovely space dedicated to everyday technology.

the idea is based on how the dichroic color wheel works in DLP projectors (the ones that sometimes look rainbow when you film them or move your eyes around quickly).
