ZENetic Computer

By Murray Bourne, 10 Feb 2006

I went to an interesting series of talks on art and technology at the Singapore Science Centre yesterday.

The opening talk was by the highly-cerebral Tosa Naoko (土佐 尚子). She showed a movie about the ZENetic Computer which she co-developed.

ZENetic Computer attempts to teach the user about Zen Buddhism, Japanese culture, ink paintings and haiku. It uses an interesting interface that allows the user to drag elements (water, bridge, moon, etc) into a 3D-like digital painting, then "move" through that painting.

I'm hoping it will be part of the new "i-Space" exhibition, due to open late 2006, at the Science Centre.

HTML: You can use simple tags like <b>, <a href="...">, etc.

To enter math, you can can either:

  1. Use simple calculator-like input in the following format (surround your math in backticks, or qq on tablet or phone):
    `a^2 = sqrt(b^2 + c^2)`
    (See more on ASCIIMath syntax); or
  2. Use simple LaTeX in the following format. Surround your math with \( and \).
    \( \int g dx = \sqrt{\frac{a}{b}} \)
    (This is standard simple LaTeX.)

NOTE: You can mix both types of math entry in your comment.
