LEO the Maker Prince: Journeys in 3D Printing
By: Carla Diana (author)Paperback
1 - 2 weeks availability
LEO the Maker Prince teaches children (both young and old) about 3D printing by following Carla and LEO's journey through Brooklyn. LEO is a walking, talking robot who happens to be able to print (in plastic) any object that Carla draws. The other robots have their own special capabilities: Hi-Ho prints in metal, Sinclair can find and print objects from a huge catalog of designs, and the others (including AL1C3-D, IRIS-5, and NiXie) have unique talents, too. Readers can come along for the journey, too: all of the objects in the book are printable one way or another.
Carla Diana enjoys living as close to the near future as possible. In her studio she works on future-specting projects in areas such as domestic robots, mobile devices and sentient kitchen appliances, combining experience in industrial and interaction design to create solutions that bridge the gap between the physical and the digital. She has taught and lectured internationally, including a year as visiting faculty at the Georgia Institute of Technology, where she was the creative director for the iconic humanoid robot, Simon, and four years at the Savannah College of Art and Design, where she co-wrote the school's first Interactive Design curriculum. Currently, she is a faculty member at U. Penn, and a founding faculty member of SVA's Products of Design program.
